320-rows computed tomography in coronary fistulae – haemodynamically significant or not significant

V. Groudeva, V. Stoynova
Abstract.

The coronary arteries are subject to congenital variations and anomalies of both minor and major clinical consequence. Coronary artery fistula is an abnormal connection between one of the coronary arteries and a heart chamber or another blood vessel. They are believed to be congenital in origin. Coronary fistulae have different clinical manifestation and significance depending on the haemodynamical alterations induced and the presence of left-to-right shunt. We present three cases of coronary fistulae in patients who underwent computed tomography coronarography with 320 row CT.
