Abstract

The lateral costal artery is a rare variant arising from the internal thoracic artery (ITA). It has been associated with steel syndrome after coronary artery bypass using the ITA as a conduit. Clinically, it is under-reported in the literature. We report the presence of a prominent lateral costal artery, coursing below the diaphragm, discovered during video-assisted thorascopic surgery pneumothorax surgery and preventing parietal pleurectomy.
