Özet

Background: The prevalence of coronary artery anomalies (CAA) are reported between 0.6-1.3% in the literature. CAA are usually asymptomatic incidental findings, but they may deteriorate coronary circulation, cause symptoms and lead to sudden cardiac death; especially in young athletes. Since interventional procedures are increasing rapidly for treatment of coronary artery disease (CAD) in the modern era, comprehensive understanding of CAA is becoming progressively critical element in dealing with CAD.
