Abstract

Surgical treatment of aneurysmal distal congenital coronary artery fistulas depends on size and anatomy. From 2008 to 2021, we applied a new surgical technique in 7 adult patients: proximal and distal fistula closure, opening of aneurysmal artery, and revascularization of branches rising from the fistula under cardiopulmonary bypass and cardiac arrest. (Level of Difficulty: Intermediate.)
