The prevalence of anomalous origin of right coronary artery from the left sinus is about 0.92%. A percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in such a vessel is challenging especially when maneuvering long stents. We report a case of 75- year old female patient with recent acute coronary syndrome. The angiogram showed significant lesions in the left anterior descending coronary artery and the left circumflex coronary artery with an aberrant RCA originating from the left sinus close to the origin of LMCA with multiple tight lesions. The aberrant RCA was stented with a 50 mm long stent. To the best of our knowledge, the placement of such a long stent in an aberrant coronary artery has hitherto never been reported in the literature.
