This work is not an anatomical atlas nor textbook (like that of McAlpine and Anderson) nor an angiographical atlas (like that of Vlodaver et al.); it is a short and comprehensive survey of the many variations of the intrinsic cardiac vessels. The reader's attention is focused on the numerous structural details and peculiarities of the human coronary arteries. The many unique features have been revealed by meticulous dissection and present an excellent documentation. All in all, this study represents an up-to-date review of morphology of the coronary arteries.
