In brief: Anomalous coronary a

Coronary artery anomalies (or malformation of coronary vessels) are congenital abnormalities in the coronary anatomy of the heart.
By definition, these abnormalities are variants of anatomy occurring in less than 1% of the general population. They are often found in combination with other congenital heart defects. Many coronary anomalies don't cause symptoms and are recognized only at the time of autopsy.
