Variations in coronary anatomy and the presence of anomalous coronary arteries are associated with high-risk valve cases i.e. higher rates of morbidity and mortality. Therefore, it is valuable for physicians to be aware of the importance of the application of screening tools to determine the location of the coronary arteries from the aortic root. Imaging modalities such as Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography (Coronary CTA) can be utilized to evaluate and determine coronary origin, course and termination, thus allowing physicians to anticipate, prepare for and prevent complications in technical valve procedures, i.e. Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)
