Multiple coronary artery-left ventricle cajeral and spongy myocardium: While congenital MMFs are generally treated conservatively, congenital solitary CCFs may undergo percutaneous occlusion or surgical ligation in the presence of substantial significant shunts.

He reported having an echocardiogram in an outside hospital that showed a tortuous vascular channel along the right atrium concerning for CA aneurysm. Case Reports in Cardiology. Sudden death in a patient with multiple left anterior descending coronary artery fistulas to the left ventricle. In this review, which is part one of a two-part series on CCFs, we describe and discuss the congenital fistulas, give an overview camerl the published literature and report details of our own series of 11 patients with MMFs and solitary macro CCFs.

Percutaneous therapeutic embolization; RA: Coronary artery fistulas are defined as sizeable connection between a coronary artery and cardiac chamber coronary-cameral fistula or any part of systemic or pulmonary vasculature coronary arteriovenous fistulahaving bypassed the myocardial capillary bed [ 3 ].

The congenital entity can be distinguished into coronary artery-ventricular multiple micro-fistulas[ 26 – 9 ] or small or large solitary macro fistulas[ 1 ], the latter making up the vast majority[ 10 ]. We describe a case of year-old woman who presented with worsening exertional dyspnea and leg swelling.

Case Reports in Cardiology

Imaging with colour flow Doppler demonstrated blood flow throughout diastole from the epicardial surface into the left ventricular cavity through the hypertrophied segment of myocardium. Myocardial infarction In the absence of atherosclerosis, MI may develop in the presence of MMFs originating from all 3 coronary arteries terminating into both ventricles[ 55 ].

Repeated endomyocardial biopsy causing coronary arterial-right ventricular fistula after cardiac transplantation. Oh et al[ 43 ] assessed the hemodynamic significance of unilateral MMFs by fractional flow reserve FFR and found no evidence of hemodynamic compromise.

Coronary cameral fistulas CCFs are rare and are characterized by abnormal communication between coronary artery CA and cardiac chamber that usually results from aberrancy of normal embryological development. The best way to manage cameral fistulae is uncertain largely due to the rarity of the condition.
