I am an adult congenital heart patient. I have a Left Circumflex Anomalous Artery as well as a mobile atrial septal aneurysm, both of which I was born with. I also was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Hypertension as an adult. There have been numerous case studies showing where a patient with idiopathic pulmonary hypertension, who has their left circumflex anomalous artery repaired, no longer has pulmonary hypertension. Are any of you aware of this to be the case? I would love to have my quality of life back! Thank You…
