Figure 2: (a) Cardiac computed tomography angiography showing the rise of the single coronary artery from the right sinus of Valsalva (*) with proximal run of the right coronary artery (RCA). The distal parts of the RCA are not shown in this projection. The single coronary artery crosses the right ventricle and the root of the pulmonary artery (RV/PA) anteriorly and gives rise to the heavily calcified left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery and further the left circumflex coronary artery (LCX). Furthermore, the left atrium (LA) and the superior vena cava (SVC) are shown. (b) Volume rendering reconstruction of contrast-enhanced 320-row multidetector cardiac computed tomography depicting the single coronary artery. The RCA gives rise to a branch that runs anterior to the pulmonary artery and supplies the LAD and LCX. Furthermore, the Ramus interventricularis posterior (RIVP) and a posterolateral branch (PL) originate from the RCA. PV: Pulmonary vein
