Abstract

Coronary artery anomaly is a rare postoperative coronary angiographic finding in heart transplant recipients. We report a case of anomalous origin of the right coronary artery in an asymptomatic 70-year-old heart transplant patient. Most coronary artery anomalies are benign, but surgical treatment may be necessary in major coronary artery anomalies that are known to have adverse outcomes.
