|Abstract||BACKGROUND: Coronary anomalies should be recognized to avoid problems during coronary intervention and cardiac surgery.METHODS AND RESULTS: We retrospectively reviewed 7400 coronary angiograms to find out the pattern and incidence of coronary anomalies of origin and distribution. We excluded patients with congenital heart diseases, coronary artery fistulae and patients with separate origin of the conus artery. and found 34 cases (0.46%) (22 males), mean age 50.7 +/- 12 years with coronary anomalies. Six cases underwent angiography prior to valve replacement and the rest were part of the evaluation for atherosclerotic coronary artery disease. The most common anomaly was separate origins of the left anterior descending coronary artery and left circumflex coronary artery [n=12 (35.3%)]. The next most common anomalies were origins of the right coronary artery from the left coronary sinus [n=7 (20.6%)] and left circumflex artery from the right sinus [n=6 (20%)]. A single coronary artery was seen in 3 cases (8.8%) which included one case of postmyocardial infarction ventricular septal rupture with triple-vessel disease, and another with two small coronary fistulae. One case each of the following coronary anomalies was found: (i) double right coronary artery, (ii) left anterior descending coronary artery from the right coronary sinus, (iii) all three coronary arteries originating separately from the right sinus, and (iv) left main coronary artery from the right sinus. Of these 34 patients, 11 (32.4%) had significant atherosclerotic disease in the anomalous vessel.CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of primary coronary anomaly seems to be less than that in earlier reports, but the pattern of anomalies appears to be similar.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
