Fistulous communication of coronary with pulmonary arteries in the adults is a common type of coronary artery fistula (CAF)1–3. In most reported cases, the fistula usually arises from the proximal left and/or right coronary arteries via the anterior conal branches that connect to the anterior wall of the main pulmonary artery. These anteriorly located abnormal communications are usually asymptomatic and are incidentally found during an angiography of the coronary arteries in 0.2–0.3% of the exams4.

Abstract

Fistulous communication of coronary with pulmonary arteries in the adults is a common type of coronary artery fistula (CAF)1–3. In most reported cases, the fistula usually arises from the proximal left and/or right coronary arteries via the anterior conal branches that connect to the anterior wall of the main pulmonary artery. These anteriorly located abnormal communications are usually asymptomatic and are incidentally found during an angiography of the coronary arteries in 0.2–0.3% of the exams4.
