Characterization of intra-arterial flow velocity within left coronary to pulmonary artery fistula.

PMID:  9184298     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The physiology of a coronary to pulmonary artery fistula has not been well characterized. This case report demonstrates the flow velocity pattern of a coronary fistula to the pulmonary artery which supports the hypothesized physiology that flow is predominantly continuous without a phasic pattern. The flow velocity within a coronary fistula has not been previously demonstrated.
