DOI: DOI: 10.1515/jce-2017-0008


Introduction: Coronary artery fistulas are usually incidental findings and rarely cause any clinical symptoms. Case presentation: In this case a coronary pulmonary fistula was revealed by coronary CT angiography and as it was considered responsible for the patients’ symp- toms, its’ closure was performed during percutaneous coronary intervention. Conclusion: The noninvasive coronary CT angiography is a valuable examination in the diagnosis of coro- nary anomalies.
