Interventional occlusion of coronary artery fistulas has become a well-accepted alternative to surgical therapy. However, occlusion of high-flow lesions in children, necessitating implantation of large occluding devices, may be limited by the requirement of large delivery catheters. This report describes the interventional occlusion of a large coronary artery fistula in an 8-year-old girl. Complete occlusion was achieved by subsequent transvenous and transarterial implantation of two Amplatzer vascular plugs (AVP). The AVP is an interesting alternative for interventional occlusion of large coronary artery fistulas in children that can be deployed safely by rather small guiding catheters.
