Description Anomalous left coronary artery originating from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a rare coronary artery anomaly that presents with myocardial ischaemia or infarction and/or cardiac failure in infants. It is associated with a mortality rate of 90% within the first year of life. Surgical correction to re-establish a two-coronary artery perfusion system is the treatment of choice, once patients are medically stable.
