Anomalous origin of the right coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ARCAPA) is a very rare and potentially fatal congenital heart defect due to myocardial ischemia secondary to coronary steal phenomenon. We present a case of an adult presenting with a myocardial infarction who was found to have ARCAPA. Three-dimensional (3D) reconstructed computed tomography angiography (CTA) was utilized preoperatively for surgical planning. Surgical technique as well as pre- and postoperative 3D CTA are described and literature reviewed.
