Congenital coronary artery fistulas are rare congenital heart anomalies. Surgical closure of these fistulas was the therapy of choice till recently. The recent development of a new accurate coil-delivery system has enabled us to embolize the vessels. Percutaneous transcatheter coil embolization is a safe and effective approach to treating coronary artery fistulas and should be considered as the best treatment for coronary artery fistulas. We report the case of 5-year-old girl whose coronary artery fistula was occluded with Gianturco coils successfully.
Key Words: Coronary artery fistula, Transcatheter embolization
