Abstract

Coronary-cameral fistulas are usually congenital, rarely acquired; the complication of this anomaly with ventricular pseudoaneurysm is exceptional. We report a new case of acquired coronary-cameral fistula, occurred in a patient who had received a bypass graft and who had suffered from angina 1 year after the surgery. On computed tomography coronary angiography, the fistula seems to communicate the first diagonal to a left ventricle pseudoaneurysm. Embolization of the fistula and filling of the pseudoaneurysm by neurocoil were successfully performed. The clinical and angiographic control after 3 months showed symptoms improvement and absence of recanalization of the fistula.
