We report a 76-year-old female with Takayasu arteritis who was found to have multiple coronary arteriovenous fistulas (CAVFs), a pulmonary-to-systemic ratio of 2:1, and aortic valve insufficiency. Aortic valve replacement and ligation of multiple CAVFs with cardiopulmonary bypass were performed under cardioplegic arrest, thus minimizing coronary steal.
