Adult presentation with myocardial infarction in anomalous origin of the left main coronary artery from the pulmonary artery is rare. We describe the different coronary flow physiology in the adult form. A double-conduit repair with a separate feeder vessel to each limb of the left coronary circulation may be necessary to balance the myocardial demand and supply in large systemic collateral coronary beds. The report describes the use of the left internal mammary and radial artery for repair.
