Abstract

LEVIN, Ricardo et al. Acute Coronary Syndrome Secondary to Hypoplastic Left Main and Left Descending Coronary ArteriesAcute Coronary Syndrome Secondary to Hypoplastic Left Main and Left Descending Coronary Arteries. Rev. argent. cardiol. [online]. 2012, vol.80, n.2, pp. 157-159. ISSN 1850-3748.

Congenital coronary artery anomalies are a diverse group of congenital disorders and an uncommon cause of acute coronary syndrome. We describe the case of a 48-year old woman with severe hypoplasia of the left main and left anterior descending coronary arteries associated with non-STsegment elevation acute myocardial infarction. Differential diagnoses and treatment options are evaluated. The patient underwent surgery with favorable outcomes.

Keywords : Acute Coronary Syndrome; Congenital Heart Defects; Tomography.
