Paresh Kumar Kuba, Jasvinder Sharma, Ashok Sharma


An anomalous origin of the right coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ARCAPA) is a very rare coronary artery anomaly with only 98 cases reported in literature till date. We report the oldest surgically treated patient and the fourth ever septuagenarian with this anomaly diagnosed ante-mortem with an eleven year followup. The literature on this anomaly was reviewed and discussed to highlight the clinical implications.
