ABERRANT CORONARY ARTERY: A RARE CONGENITAL ANOMALY EXAMINED THROUGH PRE- AND POST-PROCEDURAL 3D ANATOMICAL MODELING

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Congenital heart disease - structural abnormalities of the heart that are present at and persistent beyond birth - affects about one in every 100 live births every year in the United States [1]. One such disease is that of the aberrant coronary artery, which describes abnormalities of coronary artery morphology. In our case, we examine a patient exhibiting complex aberrant right coronary artery - a rare congenital heart defect. Pre- and post-procedural imaging was acquired from this case, and subsequent three-dimensional (3D) anatomical models were created. These models were used postoperatively to identify and describe the patient's disease presentation for the purposes of research and education, and were incorporated into virtual reality (VR) scenes in order to further educational insights.
