We considered it worthwhile to review the literature of the last decade (1985-1995) to answer the question whether the etiology and the clinical picture of coronary arteriovenous fistulas (CAVFs) have changed. Furthermore, new therapeutic modalities such as percutaneous transcatheter embolization have been developed. We tried to define the place of these(More)
Congenital solitary coronary artery fistulas (CAFs) in adults are uncommon anomalies, which by themselves may resemble the whole spectrum of cardiac presentations from asymptomatic behavior to life-threatening and catastrophic events with syncope or shock and even sudden death. It may take decades to collect a reasonable series of patients in adults and(More)
AIM To describe the characteristics of coronary artery fistulas (CAFs) in adults, including donor vessels and whether termination was cameral or vascular. METHODS A PubMed search was performed for articles between 2000 and 2010 to describe the current characteristics of congenital CAFs in adults. A group of 304 adults was collected. Clinical data,(More)
BACKGROUND The majority of coronary cameral fistulas (CCFs) are congenital in origin. On the other hand, acquired coronary cameral fistulas, having various etiopathogenic origins, are increasingly recognized. HYPOTHESIS The aim of this study was to assess the possible involvement of coronary atherosclerosis in the pathogenesis of acquired coronary cameral(More)
Eleven cases with 13, incidentally found coronary-pulmonary fistulous communications were discovered out of about 11,000 diagnostic coronary angiograms performed in different patients, over the period 1968 to 1989. These patients were followed-up for an average period of 4.4 years (range 2-11 years). The majority had a fistulous malformation originating(More)
BACKGROUND Coronary bronchial artery fistulas (CBFs) are rare anomalies, which may be isolated or associated with other disorders. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two adult patients with CBFs are described and a PubMed search was performed using the keywords "coronary bronchial artery fistulas" in the period from 2008 to 2013. RESULTS Twenty-seven reviewed(More)
AIMS Congenital coronary artery fistulas are frequently identified in adult and pediatric populations and they have been associated with various clinical and morphological features. The purpose of this study was to define the clinical and coronary angiographic morphological characteristics of adult patients with congenital solitary CAFs in the Dutch(More)
Last centuries have witnessed tremendous sophistication and progress in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery fistulas (CAFs). In many countries, CAFs were reported to be visualized and treated using several imaging techniques and different management strategies. Reports from nearly all continents of the globe have contributed to the(More)
The coronary angiographic features of four new cases of congenital coronary arteriovenous fistulas (CAVFs) are described, and the angiograms of 15 reported cases are reviewed. The morphologic appearance of CAVFs varied from a small discrete single channel to a highly complex plexiform network with a maze of fine vessels. The majority of CAVFs in our series(More)
A 54-year-old female was referred to our centre for further evaluation of recently established severe pulmonary hypertension. Six months prior to presentation to the cardiologist of the referring centre, the patient had first experienced exertional dyspnoea. At the time of presentation to the referring cardiologist, the patient's ECG showed signs of an(More)
