The coronary angiographic features of four new cases of congenital coronary arteriovenous fistulas (CAVFs) are described, and the angiograms of 15 reported cases are reviewed. The morphologic appearance of CAVFs varied from a small discrete single channel to a highly complex plexiform network with a maze of fine vessels. The majority of CAVFs in our series were composed of a single channel. Aneurysmal formation was present in 26% (6/23). Aneurysmal formation involved only the pathway and/or the termination, but never originated from the beginning of the CAVFs.
