Authors

SCA from the right sinus is the rarest coronary anomaly. We describe 2 cases: 1 with SCA type-1RI; 2 with SCA type-2RII-A. Appropriate and successful treatment (CABG in case-1; PTCA in case-2) was chosen relying on accurate morphological description provided by MDCT, in order to recognize all the possible mechanisms of myocardial ischemia.
