Anatomy of the Coronary Sinus and Epicardial Coronary Venous System in 620 Hearts: An Electrophysiology Perspective
Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology, 08/21/2012
Noheria A et al. – Epicardial coronary vein anatomy is variable, and the mid–lateral left ventricular wall can potentially be accessed through various tributaries of the epicardial veins. The orientation of the Thebesian valve favors cannulation of the coronary sinus from an anterior and inferior approach. Anterobasal, mid–lateral, and inferior apical LV coronary veins lie in proximity to the course of the phrenic nerve.
