Abstract

A 53-year-old male presented to our tertiary medical center with complaints of dyspnea and exertional chest pain with mild left ventricular dysfunction and right ventricular enlargement on echocardiography. Cardiac catheterization showed a congenital right coronary artery fistula communicating with the right sided chambers. Using contrast enhanced multi-detector computed tomography scan, the fistula was clearly draining into the coronary sinus. We describe briefly the etiology of coronary artery fistula, its clinical presentation, and the common tests used to confirm diagnosis. We further discuss the types of treatment modalities that are currently available.
