ABSTRACT

Single right coronary artery, so defined because all three coronary arteries arise from the single right aortic sinus of Valsalva, is an extremely rare entity occurring in less than 0.03% of the population. This case identifies a single coronary artery with the left anterior descending coronary artery distally connected to the left pulmonary artery with development of pulmonary hypertension. To the author’s knowledge, this has never been documented in the English literature.
