Saphenous vein graft-to-left atrium fistula treated with percutaneous transcatheter embolization with coils

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Coronary artery fistulae are rare anomalies that are most commonly congenital and rarely acquired. We present a first case of a vein graft to the left atrium fistula that occurred post coronary artery bypass grafting and was treated with percutaneous transcatheter embolization with coiling. The coil was initially lost in the left atrium, but was successfully retrieved and the fistula was closed. We review the pertinent literature on acquired coronary artery fistulae and their management.
