TOF: Initial View of Heart, Aberrant LAD

Initial view of the heart of a 7 kg 5-month-old infant with tetralogy of Fallot, subvalvar pulmonary stenosis created by multiple muscle bundles, bicuspid stenotic pulmonary valve, and moderate hypoplasia of the main pulmonary artery. The aorta is much larger than the pulmonary artery. When the aorta is partially raised, the right pulmonary artery is seen coursing posteriorly. There is an aberrant course of a left anterior coronary artery that arises from the right coronary artery and crosses the right ventricular outflow tract (outlined by suction catheter). There is a smaller secondary artery coursing from behind the pulmonary artery where the typical left anterior descending artery normally arises (outlined by forceps).
