Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Coronary arteriovenous fistulas are rare, particularly in association with coronary aneurysms. Two rare cases of patients with coronary arteriovenous fistulas and giant aneurysmal formation are described. A right coronary fistula that drained into the superior vena cava was demonstrated in one patient. The remaining patient had a documented left coronary fistula that drained into a main pulmonary artery and had evidence of several plexal vessels that transversed through the pulmonary trunk and toward the pericardial reflex. Under cardiopulmonary bypass, the fistulas and plexal vessels were successfully ligated without any injury to the native coronary circulation.
