Vieussens’ arterial ring is an uncommon cardiac condition, characterised by the abnormal connection between the right and left coronary blood supply of the heart. This anomaly was complicated by coronary artery disease causing impaired blood supply to the heart causing chest pain in the patient. The condition was diagnosed by Dr Amit Malviya (Additional Professor of Cardiology) and Dr Donbok Lynser (Additional Professor of Radiology).
The patient underwent corrective surgery on August 31, 2023, by a team of doctors led by cardiac surgeon Dr Reuben Lamiaki Kynta (Associate Professor CTVS and HOD I/C CTVS), Dr Tabang Nyitan (Assistant Professor CTVS), anaesthesiologist (Dr Neha Rawat, Assistant Professor Anesthesiology), Perfusionists (Mrinal Mandal & Ioosar Dkhar), CTVS OT and ICU Nursing staff.
