Abstract

Coronary anomalies are rare angiographic findings. Occlusion of an anomalous right coronary artery arising from left cusp is a rare cause of acute inferior wall myocardial infarction. Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) can be difficult inpatients who have a culprit lesion in a coronary artery thatarises from the opposite sinus of Valsalva. These arteries canbe difficult to visualize by coronary angiography and are evenharder to cannulate& achieved guide stability for PCI.Here we report a case of a 69 years old man who presented with an acute inferior wall myocardial infarction due to occlusion of an anomalous right coronary artery arising from left coronary cusp. A left Judkins guide was used to perform successful primary percutaneous coronary intervention for this anomaly.
