In three patients, coronary artery fistulas originating from a conal branch of the mid-segment of the left anterior descending coronary artery (n = 2) and right coronary artery (n = 1) with drainage into the right atrium (n = 2) and right ventricle (n = 1) were successfully closed without the use of cardiopulmonary bypass. The use of a coronary artery stabilizer greatly facilitated the operation by immobilization of the fistula, its supplying coronary artery, and the regional myocardium. In selected patients, this technique allows secure closure of the fistula and meticulous reconstruction of the coronary artery without the use of cardiopulmonary bypass.
