Closure of an iatrogenic aortocoronary arteriovenous fistula: transcatheter balloon embolization following failed coil embolization and salvage of coils that migrated into the coronary venous system.


We report a 50-year-old patient with successful percutaneous closure of a large inadvertent surgical aortocoronary arteriovenous fistula (shunt flow: 1.8 L/min). With initial embolization of multiple coils, no lasting occlusion of the large fistula could be achieved. Above that, two coils migrated into the coronary venous system.
