Case Study
The article presents a case study of coronary-cameral fistula. The patient was a 57-year old male smoker, with a long history of hypertension, presented with angina. The physical examination was unremarkable. An electrocardiogram showed sinus rhythm and T inversion over lateral leads. A coronary angiogram showed normal left anterior descending (LAD) and circumflex arteries. An extremely tortuous coronary fistula forming multiple loops was observed. The origin of the fistula from the LAD was not clearly seen from multiple views and it appeared to drain into the coronary sinus.
