Hello doctor,

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.

Hi.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

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?
