ABSTRACT
The selective coronary arteriography has proved of immense help in the delineation of patterns of coronary arterial disease in living man. This report describes three patients who were referred for coronary arteriography because of disabling angina and with the clinical impression of arterioscterotic heart disease. On selective cineangiography the coronary arteries were found to be patent. Coincidentally, coronary arteriovenous fistula was found in these patients. Ligation of the fistula in two patients who underwent surgery resulted in complete relief of chest pain. Surgical correction has not been accomplished in the third patient as of yet. The mechanism of `coronary steal syndrome is briefly discussed.
