Abstract: 

Introduction: The coronary artery anomalies in tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), influence the timing and outcome of surgical measures, and then preoperative detection of these abnormalities is very important.
Methods and Materials: With the aim of evaluation the incidence of coronary artery anomalies in TOF, we have retrospectively studied 369 patients (mean age: 7.8
± 4.8 years referred to Shahid Rajaii Hospital from 1996 to 2000.The diagnoses were confirmed by echocardiography, catheterization and surgery.
Results: The incidence of coronary artery abnormality was 6.8% (25/369) and the sensitivity of echochardidgraphy in diagnosis and detection of these anomalies was 80%. The most common anatomical anomalies were: a large conus branch in 13 (3.5%); single coronary artery in 6 (1.6%) left anterior descending artery (LAD) originated from right coronary artery (RCA) in 6 (1.6%); and enlarged RCA in one patient (0.3%). There were not significant differences between patients with and without coronary artery anomaly in the age of TOF diagnosis and rates of associated cardiac anomalies.
Conclusion: In this study, we have shown a noticeable prevalence of coronary artery anomalies in a sample of Iranian patients with TOF. Because the surgical importance of these abnormalities and their effects on mortality and morbidity of patients with TOF, these results make us to detect these anomalies by more sensitive diagnostic methods.
