|Right coronary artery fistula to bronchial artery – CT diagnosis
V. Groudeva, M. Nedevska
Coronary artery fistulas are described as abnormal terminations of coronary arteries. Often haemodinamically insignificant fistulas are asymptomatic and identified incidentally. We describe the CT findings of a right coronary artery fistula to bronchial artery in a 55 years old female, admitted in cardiologic clinic for chest pain. Conventional coronary angiography shows a fistula from right coronary artery draininginto the left lung. Coronary computed tomography angiography reveals fistula from sinoatrial branch of right coronary artery to a bronchial artery as well as concomitant bronchiectatic disease. Coronary CT angiography is able to identified well those coronary anomalies and explain patient’s complaints.
