ABSTRACT
Three patients with anomalous origin of a coronary artery and/or of the circumflex branch of the left coronary artery were discovered during routine selective coronary arteriography performed as part of a cardiac catheterization. It is felt that a better knowledge of the origin and distribution of the main coronary trunks prior to cardiac surgery will be most valuable to help maintain an adequate myocardial perfusion during the bypass.
