Abstract

A coronary artery fistula (CAF) is an abnormal connection between the heart chambers or one of the great veins. Most small fistulas have a good prognosis, while a prominent fistula or numerous small fistulas may lead to coronary steal. Herein we present the case of a patient who presented to our clinic with stable angina pectoris and who had CAFs originating from all major coronary arteries and draining into the left ventricle mimicked as left ventriculography.
