Frequency of Coronary Artery Anomalies in patients undergoing Coronary Angiography.
Coronary artery anomalies are abnormalities in coronary arteries by birth (congenital) and involve their anatomy, course and function. They usually occur in association with other congenital cardiac defects. Coronary artery anomalies are usually clinically silent as they do not cause symptoms and are found incidentally but relatively few become evident by causing symptoms. Objectives: Determine the frequency of coronary artery anomalies in patients undergoing coronary angiography. Study Design: Cross sectional study. Setting: Faisalabad Institute of Cardiology, Faisalabad. Period: From July to December 2017. Material & Methods: Demographic information from all the patients was recorded and all of these individuals were undergone coronary angiography. All the collected data was analyzed by SPSS. Results: The mean age of the patients was 43.74 ± 15.35 years, male and female patients were equal in number. In this study coronary anomalies were present in 28(4.06%) patients. Conclusion: Coronary artery anomalies are found quite frequently but usually are incidental finding.
