We describe a very rare case of anomalous origin of the LAD from the RCA and inter arterial course. Diagnosis was made by CAT scan following angiography for pre operative evaluation for aortic valve replacement (bicuspid aortic valve). This patient received a LIMA graft to the LAD. An extensive literature review is provided with special emphasis on risk stratification and therapeutical indication.
