Abstract

Anomalous left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a rare form of congenital heart disease that has been successfully palliated for decades. Prior to coronary reimplantation, the Takeuchi repair was the most common operative palliation. The Takeuchi repair is still seen today at less experienced congenital centers or when reimplantation is not possible. Patients who have had the Takeuchi repair are at risk of having subsequent complications related to this repair. Unfortunately, due to the surgical rarity, the post surgical anatomy is often poorly understood by cardiologists leading to inadequate risk factor assessment and compromised patient care. Coronary computed tomography angiography is a useful imaging modality to follow patients who have had the Takeuchi repair.
