Abstract

TEE, particularly with a multiplane probe, has an important complementary role to coronary angiography in delineating the proximal course and pattern of flow in anomalous coronaries. Predominant systolic flow pattern in anatomically left proximal anomalous coronaries signifies an intermediate course between the aorta and the pulmonary trunk and may be clinically useful for risk stratification.
