GAMBOA, Ricardo; MOLLON, Francisco P.; RIOS MENDEZ, Raúl E. y GUTIERREZ, Diego F.. Closure of a Coronary Fistula with an Amplatzer Vascular Plug in a Pediatric Patient. Rev. argent. cardiol. [online]. 2008, vol.76, n.3, pp. 233-235. ISSN 1850-3748.
Congenital coronary fistula is an infrequent condition generally asymptomatic, which is mostly diagnosed by an incidental finding. Depending on the presence of hemodynamic compromise, coronary fistulas may be treated with a conservative approach, with surgery or, recently, with transcatheter closure. We present a case report of a patient with a large coronarycameral fistula treated with percutaneous embolization with Amplatzer vascular plug. No complications developed during the procedure and follow-up.
