A congenital abnormality known as a single coronary artery (SCA) is usually discovered by coincidence. SCA is thought to affect as little as 0.024% to 0.066% of people who have routine coronary artery catheterization. Objectives: TSingle coronary arteries found on coronary angiography are the major focus of this investigation on coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA). Material and methods: The Rai Medical College in Bangalore conducted a cross-sectional study between April 2021 and November 2021. Pre-cardiac surgery assessment, evaluation of a coronary stent or graft, evaluation of cardiomyopathy or congenital heart disease, and evaluation of syncope were the most prevalent reasons for CCTA. These were followed by chest discomfort to rule out coronary artery disease. Results: Significant differences were seen in SBP, DBP, PP, and BMI between the control and SCA groups (P0.05). Neither group differed substantially from the other in terms of age, FBG, TG, TC, HDL-C, or LDL-C (P0.05). Conclusion: According to the course an abnormal artery takes, SCA can be divided into several unique subgroups for better understanding.
