Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation, which is defined as the presence of an ab-normal connection between the pulmonary artery and pulmonary vein, is rarely seen. Although it generally presents as a congenital condition, it may be accompanied by hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia. Clinical signs vary according to the amount of shunt in proportion to the number and size of the fistulae. Patients may present with cyanosis and respiratory trouble. If the disease remains untreated, it may result in cardiac failure and ineffective endocarditis, thereby leading to the rupture of the an-eurysmal fistula...

In cases of pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect (PA-VSD), coronary-pulmonary arterial fistula (CPAF) as the main source of pulmonary blood supply is extremely rare. These fistulae may arise from the left coronary artery, right coronary artery, or a single coronary artery. Fistulae from a single coronary artery are unusual. We are reporting a case of PA-VSD with single coronary artery and CPAF as the main source of pulmonary supply in addition to two major aortopulmonary collateral arteries (MAPCAS)...

Choriocarcinoma is a highly malignant neoplasm arising from the trophoblast of a human pregnancy, which may have distant spread to multiple organs, particularly to the lung. We report a case of a pulmonary arteriovenous fistula that developed after chemotherapy within a choriocarcinoma metastasis. A 24-year-old female with a history of uterine choriocarcinoma presented with multiple hypervascular pulmonary nodules on the initial chest computed tomography (CT) scan, consistent with lung metastases. Four months after chemotherapy, follow-up chest CT revealed a decrease in the size and vascularity of the lung metastases, except for 1 nodule that persisted with marked contrast enhancement and developed a communication with a pulmonary artery and vein...

Postoperative residual shunting is a significant concern in patients with coronary arteriovenous fistulas, especially in fistulas originating from the proximal left coronary artery, because of the limited surgical field. We report a case of fistulas originating from the proximal coronary artery in a 63-year-old woman in whom the ascending aorta and pulmonary artery were transected to obtain good surgical exposure. After complete transection of both great arteries, fistulas arising from the left main trunk were ligated externally, and their intracardiac openings were closed internally...

We report a case of a type A aortic dissection with extension into the main pulmonary artery through a sinus of Valsalva fistula. Echocardiography and computed tomographic angiography of the chest were performed and bicuspid aortic valve, hemopericardium, and dilatation of the aortic root were found. A Stanford type A dissection was seen, extending to the distal transverse thoracic aorta, and there was a communication between the dissection at the left sinus of Valsalva and the main pulmonary artery, where a dissection flap was detected at computed tomographic angiography...

Herein, we report the case of a 60-year-old man, a smoker with a history of arterial hypertension and diabetes mellitus. After computed tomography (CT) for an episode of hemoptysis, the patient underwent elective thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) because of a degenerative aneurysm of the descending thoracic aorta. The area of perianeurysmal pulmonary atelectasis reported on the CT scan was not considered. Three months later, he developed an aortopulmonary fistula without endoleaks. Although TEVAR is a relatively safe procedure, no detail should be overlooked in the preoperative evaluation in order to avoid life-threatening complications...

Fetuses with pulmonary atresia or pulmonary stenosis with intact ventricular septum manifest variable degrees of right ventricle hypoplasia and inadequacy. We studied the relationship between prenatal echocardiographic parameters and their progression through gestation as potential predictors of postnatal single-ventricle or two-ventricle care strategy. Serial fetal echocardiograms of pulmonary atresia (n = 28) or severe pulmonary stenosis (n = 8) and intact ventricular septum were reviewed. Measurements included tricuspid valve and mitral valve diameter and Z scores, degree of tricuspid regurgitation, presence of subaortic stenosis, presence of coronary artery fistulae, and Doppler pulsatility indices in middle cerebral and umbilical artery...

Postoperative systemic artery to pulmonary vein fistula is very rare. In this report, we describe an exceptional condition of both intrapulmonary arteriovenous fistula and systemic artery to pulmonary vein fistula, involving all right hemithoracic systemic arteries, inducing left-to-left shunt. This condition was responsible for heart failure, 24 years after a right upper lobectomy for inflammatory tumor. Investigations included computed tomographic angiography, arteriography, and four-dimensional flow magnetic resonance imaging...

Coronary artery fistulas are rare anomalous vascular connections between coronary arteries and a cardiac chamber or a central vessel, without an intervening capillary bed. Coronary-pulmonary fistulas are a distinct subset of coronary artery fistulas. We present the case of a previously healthy 63-year-old-man who presented with chest pain and was found to have mediastinal haemorrhage. Upon further investigations, he was found to have multiple coronary-pulmonary fistulas with pseudoaneurysm formation in three of the fistulas...

Congenital coronary artery fistula is an uncommon anomaly. Transcatheter coil embolization or Amplatzer vascular plug device closure of fistula is often done in symptomatic patients with safe accessibility to the feeding coronary artery. Embolization of Amplatzer vascular plug device is rare. We report an 11-year-old male child who presented to us with increasing shortness of breath for 7 years. He had a history of Amplatzer vascular plug device closure of right coronary-cameral fistula 8 years back. Echocardiography demonstrated a dilated aneurysmal right coronary artery with turbulent jet entering into the right ventricle (RV) and device embolized into the left pulmonary artery (LPA)...

Harlequin syndrome is a rare autonomic disorder characterized by unilateral diminished sweating and flushing of the face in response to heat or exercise. Extrinsic ganglion compressions, most of the times by neoplasms, can induce the syndrome. During investigation of a 27 year-old woman presenting Harlequin syndrome with diminished sweating on the left side and flushing of the right half of her face, a left thyrocervical trunk aneurysm was detected by angio MRI. Thyrocervical trunk aneurysms are rare and only a few cases have been reported...

BACKGROUND: An arteriovenous fistula is an aberrant communication between an artery and a vein, here is a case where risk factors including multiple fistulae, dangerous location and high flow blood occurred simultaneously. METHODS: The patient is a 13-year-old boy diagnosed with bilateral arteriovenous fistulae between the jugular vein and carotid artery separately, with cardiac dilatation and pulmonary artery hypertension. We performed right arteriovenous fistulae resection, ligated the involved small vessels and tightened the internal jugular vein...

The case being presented is a 35-year-old female with a 3-year history of progressive dyspnea and right-sided heart failure following spine surgery. Physical examination identified a continuous bruit in the lower abdomen radiating to her back which prompted further evaluation. Echocardiography showed normal left ventricle systolic function, enlarged right ventricle, functional tricuspid regurgitation, and moderate pulmonary hypertension. A computed tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen and pelvis demonstrated findings consistent with an arteriovenous fistula (AVF) between the right common iliac artery and the inferior vena cava...

Arteriovenous fistulas can lead to a number of different chronic complications. We describe a case where a patient developed a thrombosis within her brachiobasilic arteriovenous fistula, which was manually manipulated in order to restore fistula flow. This resulted in a pulseless electrical activity cardiac arrest within a few minutes. After ten minutes of chest compressions and intubation, there was return of spontaneous circulation. No epinephrine was given nor shocks administered. Patient was extubated within minutes and was alert, orientated and haemodynamically stable...

Pulmonary arteriovenous fistula (PAVF) is a complication of the Glenn shunt. A 57-year-old tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) patient, who had undergone a Glenn shunt and TOF total correction, complained of dyspnea and cyanosis. PAVFs were present in the right lung, and right lung perfusion was nearly absent. After coil embolization, takedown of the Glenn shunt, and reconstruction of the right pulmonary artery, the patient's symptoms were relieved. Extrapulmonary radioisotope uptake caused by the PAVFs shown in lung perfusion scans decreased, and right lung perfusion increased gradually...

Anomalies of the coronary arteries mainly concern a pediatric population, bringing together a wide range of defects. In adults, the evolution is linked to the hemodynamic consequences of fistula. Several therapeutic options have been proposed such as surgery or embolization. We report the case of a 55 years old patient addressed because of dyspnea secondary to aortic insufficiency. The preoperative assessment shown the coexistence of coronary abnormality corresponding to a coronaro-pulmonary fistula. This type of coronary anomaly is rarely described in the adult population, because of its consequences secondary to the closure of the foramen ovale, resulting in angina symptoms in childhood...

We report three cases of coronary fistula aneurysm associated with mitral valve insufficiency. The patients were referred to our cardiovascular department because of exertional dyspnea. Echocardiography showed severe mitral valve insufficiency resulting from leaflet flail or prolapse and normal left ventricular function. In all three cases, preoperative coronary angiography showed coronary-to-pulmonary artery fistula associated with significant aneurysm of the fistulous tract. All patients underwent uneventful mitral valve repair and external ligation of the fistulas...

We describe a case involving a successful Fontan procedure for the treatment of pulmonary arteriovenous fistulas in a patient with polysplenia. The patient was diagnosed with bilateral superior vena cavae, interrupted inferior vena cava with azygos connection, wide separate hepatic veins, and central pulmonary artery stenosis following repair of a non-confluent pulmonary artery. Bilateral extracardiac conduits were used to connect each hepatic vein to the pulmonary artery, opposite each superior vena cava. Clinical improvement in the pulmonary arteriovenous fistulas was observed within 4 months after surgery...
