Abstract

Patent ductus arteriozus (PDA) is the most common type of extracardiac shunt and it usually closes within 2 or 3 days of birth, but it may remain patent for one's lifetime. In this paper, we report a 65-year-old woman with PDA associated with a right coronary arising anomaly. To our knowledge, the anomalous origin of the right coronary artery associated with PDA has not been published to date. In this case report, we used only the standard Judkins type of a left coronary catheter for cannulation of both left and right coronary arteries and as well as PDA.
