Abstract

Coronary artery fistula is rare, but it is the most common congenital coronary artery anomaly with hemodynamic significance. It usually causes no symptoms in young patients but may be associated with symptoms and complications in older patients. Surgery has been the traditional treatment. In this report, a 7-year-old girl who had a coronary artery fistula from the left circumflex coronary artery to the right atrium was successfully treated by percutaneous transcatheter technique.
