ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this review are to discuss the spectrum of coronary artery anomalies and the evidence behind current treatment strategies. DATA SOURCE: MEDLINE and PubMed. CONCLUSION: Coronary artery anomalies exist in up to 1% of the population and most of these do not cause symptoms or ischemia and do not require any surgical intervention whereas others are potentially fatal. The type of surgical intervention is often dictated by the type of lesion, and upon the unique anatomic and physiologic variables associated with each lesion. Postoperative care can be challenging particularly after surgical repair of anomalous left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery.
