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)...

PURPOSE: To report the initial clinical experience with percutaneous deep vein arterialization (PDVA) to treat critical limb ischemia (CLI) via the creation of an arteriovenous fistula. METHODS: Seven patients (median age 85 years; 5 women) with CLI and no traditional endovascular or surgical revascularization options (no-option CLI) were recruited in a pilot study to determine the safety of PDVA. All patients were diabetic; 4 had Rutherford category 6 ischemia...

Primary coronary sinus tumors are extremely rare. Herein, we present a case of a pregnant woman with a primary myxoma in the coronary sinus (CS), which was diagnosed by echocardiography and computed tomography. We reviewed the literature and found two other primary CS tumors. We summarized the gender, ages, symptoms, diagnostic methods, associated anomalies, treatments, histologic findings, and outcomes of the 3 cases. Dyspnea was a common symptom of all 3 patients. Diagnostic methods included echocardiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and coronary angiography...

Hemodialysis patients often present multiple comorbidities and have a high mortality rate (15-20% per year), mostly due to cardiovascular events. Besides predisposing pathological conditions related to uremia (heart failure, coronary heart disease, left ventricular hypertrophy, arrhythmias), they also have specific risk factors linked to the hemodialysis (HD) treatment in itself: chronic inflammation, fluid overload, autonomic nervous system dysfunction, arterovenous fistula. These factors may affect the hemodynamic compensatory systems (vascular refilling, arteriolar and venous tone, autonomic nervous system response) to fluid removal, with high risk of intra-dialysis hypotension (IDH) episodes or arrhythmic events...

A 41-year-old African male presented with worsening dyspnea and cachexia concerning for congestive heart failure. Transesophageal echocardiogram revealed a large mass attached to the aortic valve leaflet, mass attached to the flail anterior mitral valve leaflet, severe pulmonary hypertension and dilatation of the aortic root along with fistula between the right coronary aortic cusp and the right ventricular (RV) outflow tract. Blood cultures grew Abiotrophia Defectiva (AD) sensitive to vancomycin. Patient underwent emergent surgical closure of aorto RV fistula and aortic root replacement along with pulmonary and mitral valve replacement...

Coronary artery fistula is an uncommon congenital disease that requires invasive treatment for symptomatic patients. Although percutaneous intervention has become the popular treatment option, surgical treatment is preferred for severely tortuous coronary artery fistulas. We report a case of an extremely tortuous coronary artery fistula successfully treated with the support of the GuideLiner catheter and the mother-grandchild technique.

: We reported the case of a 61-year-old woman with a suspected postinfarction ventricular septal defect. The predominantly diastolic flow pattern at our echocardiographic assessment was inconsistent with this diagnosis. A computed tomography revealed a left anterior descending artery to right ventricle fistula. This case highlights the importance of echocardiographic assessment in the differential diagnosis between ventricular septal defect and coronary artery fistula.

A form of systemic vasculitis that affects mostly small and medium-sized vessels, Kawasaki disease (KD) is most commonly found in children under the age of 5 years old. Though its etiology is unknown, KD has been the most frequent acquired heart disease in developing countries. Its incidence has increased over recent decades in many centuries, including Japan, Korea, and China. The most severe complications of KD are coronary artery lesions (CAL), including dilation, fistula, aneurysm, arterial remodeling, stenosis, and occlusion...

Coronary artery fistula with giant coronary artery ectasia is a rare abnormal CHD. Multidetector CT is useful for the diagnosis. Early diagnosis and surgery are recommended.

BACKGROUND: True venous aneurysm formation can occur in patients with arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) for hemodialysis but association with steal syndrome is uncommon. METHODS: To describe a case of a patient on chronic hemodialysis through a right brachiocephalic fistula, who presents with associated steal syndrome and true arteriovenous access aneurysm. RESULTS: A 34-year-old female with true AVF aneurysm presented with hand steal syndrome confirmed by noninvasive studies...

BACKGROUND: Transradial artery (TRA) left heart catheterization is an increasingly used technique for both diagnostic and interventional coronary procedures. This study evaluates the incidence of access site complications in the current interventional era. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 507 procedures were performed under standardized conditions. Each procedure was performed using high levels of anticoagulation, hydrophilic sheaths, and short post-procedural compression times...

A 71-year-old male with known bronchiectasis and atrial fibrillation was admitted to Seoul St. Mary's Hospital with recurrent transient ischemic attack. Radiofrequency ablation was performed to resolve the patient's atrial fibrillation, but failed. However, a fistula between the left circumflex artery and the bilateral bronchial arteries was found on computed tomography. Fistula ligation and a left-side maze operation were planned due to his recurrent symptom of dizziness, and these procedures were successfully performed...

We present an uncommon and underreported complication of coronary artery bypass graft surgery: erroneous anastomosis of the left internal mammary artery to the great cardiac vein. The iatrogenic aorto-coronary arteriovenous fistula with left-to-right shunting resulted in dilation of the coronary sinus, a supporting secondary finding. Factors predisposing to this inadvertent anastomosis include an intramyocardial segment of the left anterior descending coronary artery, demonstrated in this case, as well as epicardial fat and potentially fibrosis of the underlying myocardium...

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...

The transradial approach (TRA) for coronary angiography and interventions is increasingly utilized around the world. Radial artery occlusion (RAO) is the most common significant complication after transradial catheterization, with incidence varying between 1% and 10%. Although RAO is rarely accompanied by hand ischemia, it is an important complication because it prohibits future transradial access and radial artery utilization as a conduit for coronary artery bypass grafting or arteriovenous fistula formation...

BACKGROUND: Vascular complications are still common in the catheterization laboratory setting. However, no risk scores for their prediction have been described. With a view to bridging this gap, the present study sought to develop and validate a score for prediction of vascular complications associated with arterial access in patients undergoing interventional cardiology procedures. METHODS: This prospective multicenter cohort study included adult patients who underwent cardiac catheterization via the femoral or radial route...
