Abstract

Abnormal ostial morphology and acute take-off are considered potential mechanisms of flow obstruction in the anomalous coronary artery. We present a proof of concept describing how three-dimensional transoesophageal echocardiography can be used to visualise the coronary ostium and proximal course in patients with anomalous coronary artery.
