Coronary fistula

Pankaj Aggarwal, Anil Bhan
Uniqueness of this case report is that though coronary cameral fistulas are itself rare, we closed fistula effectively in a different way. Since surgery was only good option available as patient had concomitant valvular disease, we closed distal end of fistula in PA and then took deep bites of suture in fistulous track itself. This approach closed fistula effectively and we had no need to dissect and ligate its origin from LAD which is more arduous and dangerous task.

OBJECTIVES: To assess the natural history and outcome of fetal pulmonary stenosis [PS] detected at 14 to 16 weeks gestation. METHODS: This is a retrospective study, in the years 2004-2015, with serial follow up during pregnancy. Patients referred for complete early fetal ultrasound including all fetal systems and a fetal echocardiogram. Ninety seven percent of the women were low risk, and 3% had risk factors such as maternal type 1 diabetes mellitus, exposure to teratogenic drugs or anomalies in previous pregnancies or in other family members...

Coronary cameral fistulae are rare and bicoronary pulmonary artery fistulae is even rarer. This is a case of a 70 year old male who presented to us with complaints of chest pain and dyspnoea. His ECG showed ST-T changes in inferior and anterior precordial leads suggestive of ischaemia in those territories. His coronary angiogram revealed bilateral coronary pulmonary arterial fistulae arising from left circumflex and right coronary artery and draining into pulmonary artery without any atherosclerotic narrowing of coronaries...

INTRODUCTION: Coronary artery fistula (CAF) is a rare congenital anomalous connection between the coronary arteries (CA) and a cardiac chamber or great vessel. Treatment options of symptomatic CAF consist of transcatheter or surgical closure. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of all patients with CAF diagnosed between 1993 and 2014 concerning treatment approaches and follow-up after closure. RESULTS: In a cohort of more than 25000 patients, 194 (<0...

Interventricular septal hematoma is a rare complication of retrograde chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) with a typically benign course. Here we report two cases of interventricular septal hematoma and coronary-cameral fistula development after right coronary artery (RCA) CTO-PCI using a retrograde approach. Both were complicated by development of ST-segment elevation and chest pain. One case was managed actively and the other conservatively, both with a favorable outcome...

BACKGROUND: Congenital anomalies of the coronary arteries(CAs) are rare and are often diagnosed incidentally during a conventional coronaryangiography. Recently, the incidence of these congenital defects is on the rise particularly after the introduction of the electrocardiography (ECG) gated coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA). This innovative radiological screening modality has led to the most precise mapping of the course of the CAs on Computed Tomographic Scan. The aim of the study is to determine the prevalence and describe theCAscongenital anomalies and their variations in Kuwaiti population at a single institution experience...

Coronary artery fistulae are abnormal connections between a coronary artery and any cardiac chamber or other vessels. Most of them have a congenital origin. We report a 60 years old woman referring a history of progressive dyspnea and orthopnea during the last year. A continuous heart murmur was audible in the third and fourth intercostal spaces at the left sternal border. Electrocardiogram was normal and echocardiography showed mild dilation of right cavities and an image suggesting a dilated right coronary artery with flow to right atrium...

BACKGROUND: Coronary artery fistula (CAF) is a rare cardiac anomaly. Application of transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is not fully illustrated in pediatric period. Meanwhile, the treatment strategy of CAF is still a controversial issue. CASE PRESENTATION: Five cases of CAF with different types were presented. We also retrospectively reviewed 32 records of CAF in our institution from May 2001 to January 2015, including cardiac murmurs, symptoms, TTE diagnoses, complications, other anomalies, treatment and outcome...

Coronary artery fistulas are rare and the feeding artery is ectatic and tortuous. It is not well-known whether coronary artery ectasia (CAE) is a risk factor of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in the puerperal periods. A 40-year-old woman with a coronary artery fistula and an ectatic right coronary artery (RCA) had delivered twins. A month later, she had chest pain and coronary angiography revealed thrombogenesis in the RCA. She had no risk factors of cardiovascular disease or thrombogenesis. We should recognize that CAE is a risk factor for ACS in women in the perinatal and puerperal periods...

AIM: To delineate the features and current therapeutic option of congenital and acquired aortocameral fistulas (ACF) secondary to iatrogenic or infectious disorders. METHODS: From a PubMed search using the term "aortocameral fistula", 30 suitable papers for the current review were retrieved. Reviews, case series and case reports published in English were considered. Abstracts and reports from scientific meetings were not included. A total of 38 reviewed subjects were collected and analyzed...

Congenital coronary artery fistulas are rare anomalies. As coronary angiography and multidetector computed tomography have become more accessible, they have been increasingly used in the investigation of chest pain and heart failure. Coronary artery fistulas are often an incidental finding, which raises the question of how patients with this condition should be managed. Intervention with either transcatheter closure or surgical closure is often technically possible. Many patients are asymptomatic early after closure...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Use of arteriovenous fistulas, the most preferred type of access for hemodialysis, is limited by their high maturation failure rate. The aim of this study was to assess whether aggressive surveillance with routine duplex ultrasound and intervention can decrease the maturation failure rate of arteriovenous fistulas. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS: We conducted a single-center, parallel-group, randomized, controlled trial of patients undergoing autogenous arteriovenous fistula...

BACKGROUND: Multiple plexus-like coronary to pulmonary fistulas (CAPFs) originating from bilateral coronary arteries are a rare type of coronary artery fistula (CAF). Their etiology and therapeutic strategy are discussed. METHODS AND RESULTS: Three patients were diagnosed with dual origin plexus-like CAFs drained to the pulmonary artery trunk. Their ages ranged from 40 to 78 years. Enhanced computed tomography could clearly demonstrate three-dimensional anatomy of CAPFs...

Aortic arch atresia has not been associated with coronary anomalies. We present a unique case of a patient with Turner syndrome and aortic arch atresia with the incidental finding of a right coronary artery to pulmonary artery fistula at the time of surgical repair.
