Mayo Clinic’s Approach to Anomalous Coronary Artery Unroofing

In this video, Elizabeth H. Stephens, M.D., Ph.D. discusses the surgical treatment, anomalous coronary artery unroofing, for anomalous aortic origin of the coronary artery (AAOCA). AAOCA consists of one of the coronary arteries arising from the aorta in an abnormal position. This may be found incidentally when a patient is undergoing CT scan for another reason, or may be encountered during a work up for chest pain or other symptoms. While there is a range of presentations and consequences from the anomaly, in some cases this can cause ischemia and even sudden death.
