Abstract

Transcatheter embolization of coronary artery fistulae has become the therapy of choice for this uncommon lesion. We report a case in which transcatheter embolization was performed in a nine-year-old boy with a large fistula originating from the proximal portion of the left anterior descending artery and communicating with the pulmonary artery and the right coronary artery. The fistula was occluded 'antegrade' by cannulating the connection with the pulmonary artery to deliver occluding coils.
