This paper begins with a review of the coronary artery trees extraction techniques within different eras. Next, a review of 3D reconstruction of coronary artery trees approaches is presented in details. A well presentation of the center of gravity approaches is included within the 3D reconstruction review techniques. Finally, the paper discusses the surface reconstruction techniques throughout their development stages. Each stage of the review paper is concluded by a summary. This paper is concluded by a comprehensive summary which discussed the lack of a robust approach in each stage of it. The improvement of a new approach in each stage depends on the lack in that stage and the results which are expected from the work.
