The article focuses on the diagnostic techniques used for congenital coronary artery fistula. The phonocatheter can be useful and selective coronary arteriograms offer excellent anatomic detail. Surgical correction utilizing cardiopulmonary bypass is advocated in most cases. These factors have been illustrated in a young female patient seen at Saint Luke's Hospital.

    Abstract: Background: We hypothesized that cardiopulmonary bypass induces a selective alteration of the coronary arterial endothelial cell signal transduction which could be explained by a state of depletion and/or decreased activity of endogenous tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4).
