Right coronary artery reimplantation is the most anatomic repair of the anomalous aortic origin of the right coronary artery. The authors have used the minimally invasive approach for RCA reimplantation for all patients with anomalous origin of RCA from the left sinus for the last five years. This video demonstrates their method for this operation along with technical tips.
