Anomalous origin of the right coronary artery from the ascending aorta above the left sinus of Valsalva is a very rare coronary anomaly, which can pose extreme difficulties for the operator, especially in the setting of an acute myocardial infarction. Herein, we describe a patient with this very rare anomaly in whom computed tomography coronary angiographic guidance was used to identify its presence and perform successful angioplasty in the setting of an inferior wall myocardial infarction complicated by 2:1 atrioventricular block.
