Origin of both coronary arteries from the same sinus of Valsalva: report of two cases

Abstract

Origin of both coronary arteries from the same sinus of Valsalva was found in two patients. In one patient the right coronary artery opened from the left sinus of Valsalva, coursed between the pulmonary artery and aorta, disclosed a 95% obstruction in its proximal third with good runoff. The portion of the artery between the aorta and pulmonary artery showed cyclic narrowing during systole. In the second patient the left coronary opened from the right sinus of Valsalva, the left main trunk crossed anteriorily the pulmonary artery conus, and both the circumflex and the left anterior descending branches showed significant narrowing. In both patients the arteries shared a common sinus with two separate orifices, both had bicuspid aortic valve, and in both, nonaberrant coronary vessels also had stigmata of atherosclerosis.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
