Abstract

Arteria lusoria is a rare aortic arch anomaly, with 1%-2% incidence. This image series documents the discovery of this anatomic variant in a patient who presented for primary percutaneous coronary intervention due to myocardial infarction. Awareness of this anomaly and subsequent rapid conversion to femoral access can reduce door-to-balloon time during primary PCI.
