Successful closure for a case of congenital coronary artery fistula using a patent ductus arteriosus occluder.
Summary of "Successful closure for a case of congenital coronary artery fistula using a patent ductus arteriosus occluder."
We describe a case of transcatheter occlusion of a large and tortuose coronary artery fistula in an 8-year-old girl. During 2.5 years' of follow-up, she had no complaints and developed normally. This method of reserving the guide wire in cardiac catheterisation is extremely useful. Through the application of a patent ductus arteriosus occluder, the transcatheter closure of coronary artery fistulas proves to be a safe, feasible, and cost-effective option to surgery.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Internal Mammary-coronary Artery Anastomosis
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
Coronary Artery Bypass
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
Coronary-subclavian Steal Syndrome
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
Coronary Artery Disease
Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.
Coronary Vessel Anomalies
Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
Congenital coronary artery fistula (CAF) is a rare disease. We report a case of a 58-year-old man having a complex coronary to pulmonary artery fistula associated with a large saccular aneurysm origin...
Coronary artery fistulae are an uncommon anomaly and, while frequently asymptomatic, may require interventional therapy. Transcatheter approaches for closure of coronary artery fistulae are now common...
The patient was a neonate with a large coronary artery fistula (CAF) between the left circumflex artery and coronary sinus in whom an intractable progressive heart failure with myocardial ischemia dev...
We report a rare case of a male child aged 4 years and 5 months who was diagnosed with a coronary artery fistula and left single coronary artery. Pre-operative evaluation with echocardiography and sel...
We sought to evaluate intermediate to long-term follow-up after coronary artery fistula (CAF) closure with emphasis on thrombotic complications. Transcatheter closure (TCC) or surgical closure (SC) is...
Background and Purpose: Congenital coronary artery fistula (CAF) is an uncommon anomaly. In some patients they can became symptomatic, associated with significant morbidity and mortality....
Anal fistulae are a difficult problem to treat. The optimal treatment for fistula involving the anal sphincter is unclear. Two standardly used methods of treatment are the ligation of in...
It would be useful to study coronary arteriovenous difference of various markers in patients who are undergoing coronary angiography for suspected coronary artery disease. Environmental an...
The purpose of the study is to find out if giving the study drug, Androgel (testosterone) as a testosterone replacement help bring the testosterone to an acceptable level and to find out i...
To test the ability of electron beam CT in evalting the coronary artery pattern in children with congenital heart disease.
