I was diagnosed about 3 months ago of having a single coronary....I have a right coronary artery and just after it comes out of the ostium are my LAD and CX arteries teeing off it ....My question is I have 2 daughters ( 34 and 31) and 2 grand children that are very active in sports.......(8 and 5) should they all be tested for defects and if so what is the single best test for kids.....
Coronary artery anomalies are congenital (meaning that they are present at birth), and although there have been studies that show that certain types of coronary anomalies can run in families, we have not yet found a solid pattern to say for sure that they are hereditary.
