I recently went for a coronary CT angiogram. I received the following report. While my GP explained my arteries were clear, he did not explain the anomaly apparently, which is in the middle line of the page I have attached. Should I be concerned about this? What does it mean exactly? Thank you.
We are here to help you. I have studied your report (attachment removed to protect patient identity). One of your arteries is not following the normal anatomical course as in other people. However, this is a normal variant as is not going to harm you. There is no blockage. You can understand it with an example that all of your members come to home through one way and one of your notorious son takes another route that is a little curving, but a normal route.
Thank you doctor,
Does this variant increase my chance of angina or heart attack down the line?
