In this multicenter study, the authors report on outcomes in 156 patients who underwent surgery for anomalous aortic origin of the coronary arteries. Unroofing and reimplantation were the most common procedures. There was no perioperative mortality. The authors concluded that surgery for anomalous aortic origin of the coronary arteries is safe and effective and most patients can return to normal life.
