ALVES, Nilton. Origin of the Circumflex Branch of the Coronary Artery: A Case Report. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2008, vol.26, n.1, pp. 39-41. ISSN 0717-9502. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022008000100006.
The left coronary artery usually supplies the circumflex branch which provides several atrial and ventricular branches. During a routine dissection of the coronary artery, we could detect a circumflex branch originating from the right coronary artery. This resulted in an analysis of another 59 hearts without any similar results.
