Despite this anomaly occurs very rarely, it is very important for interventional cardiologists to identify it during coronary angiography. Revascularization of the myocardium, using drug-eluting stents is a feasible, effective and safe method for the treatment of ischemic heart disease in patients with anomalous origin of the left main coronary artery.
