Abstract

Anomalous origins of both the left and right coronary arteries are rare but have been well documented when both arteries arise from the pulmonary trunk (Angelini et al., Circulation 105:2449-2454, 2002). An anomalous coronary arterial origin from the pulmonary arteries usually involves the left coronary artery (ALCPA) and less frequently the right coronary artery (ARCPA). At least three cases have been reported in which the right coronary artery arose abnormally from the left ventricle (LV), but none have been reported in which both coronary arteries took their origin from the right ventricle (Ippisch and Kimball, J Am Soc Echocardiogr 23:222.e1-222.e2, 2010; Okuyama et al., Jpn Heart J 36:115-118, 1995; Culbertson et al., Pediatr Cardiol 16:73-75, 1995). Ostial atresia with anomalous origin of a coronary artery from the right ventricle has been described only in pulmonary atresia with an intact ventricular septum and a hypoplastic right ventricle. In this setting, atresia of both coronary ostia with right ventricular origin of both coronary arteries is a rare variant. This report presents a neonate in whom the entire coronary arterial system arose from the right ventricle via a single fistula with no other intracardiac defects. To the authors' knowledge, this anomaly has not been described previously.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 16 July 2014.
All research outputs
#6,596,174
of 12,219,921 outputs
Outputs from Pediatric Cardiology
#223
of 1,057 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#85,466
of 216,782 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Pediatric Cardiology
#2
of 31 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,219,921 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,057 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.4. This one has done well, scoring higher than 78% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 216,782 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 58% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 31 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 87% of its contemporaries.
