Abstract

Four cases are discussed in which anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the right sinus of Valsalva was identified prospectively by transthoracic echocardiography when the anomalous coronary passed between the great arteries. Color Doppler flow mapping was a critical component in identifying the anomalous coronary, particularly when the proximal course of the left main coronary was intramural.
