Abstract

Angioplasty of anomalous coronary arteries can be technically challenging because of difficulty in selectively cannulating the aberrant vessel. We present our experience with angioplasty of an anomalous right coronary artery. A Judkins-type left coronary catheter with an eccentric tip, the FL4-G type catheter was used to obtain stable position in the right coronary artery and angioplasty was performed.
