Cardiac electrophysiologists' use of the coronary sinus (CS) to map and ablate accessory pathways and implant left ventricular leads has emphasized the need for understanding CS anatomy. In this review, we briefly examine the developmental and radiological anatomy of the CS and discuss in detail the gross anatomy of this cardiac vein. We highlight the correlations of the acquired anatomical knowledge relevant to clinical electrophysiology practice.
