Woven coronary artery anomaly is a rare congenital anomaly, and intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography are useful for the diagnosis. We performed both imaging techniques for woven coronary artery anomaly and evaluated which was superior. We concluded that optical coherence tomography was the preferred imaging modality in this case. (Level of Difficulty: Intermediate.)
