Ramush Bejiqi*, Ragip Retkoceri, Rinor Bejiqi and Arber Retkoceri
Coronary cameral fistulas (CCF) are rare, mostly congenital, entity where they involve abnormal termination of a coronary artery, usually the right coronary, into a cardiac chamber, usually the right ventricle. In adult most of CCFs are discovered incidentally during angiographic evaluation for coronary vascular disorder. In infants and children predominate clinical and lab signs of right to left shunt, anginal symptoms or rare, or signs of heart failure. We present a 3-months-old boy with CCF without clinical signs despite that echocardiography and selective coronary arteriography showed important flow through the fistula.
Keywords: coronary arteries anomaly, congenital heart disease, coronary fistula.
