Rare coronary anastomoses between the aorta, pulmonary trunk, left coronary artery, and subclavian artery



We report a rare case of coronary anastomoses in an 83-year-old male cadaveric heart. Anomalous vessels arose from the right sinus of the aorta, left main coronary artery, left anterior descending artery, left anterior medial atrial artery, and left subclavian artery. These vessels bifurcated and anastomosed, and finally connected to the pulmonary trunk. The present case is categorized as a multilateral coronary artery fistula in cardiology. Clin.
