Left main coronary artery-to-pulmonary artery fistula with severe aneurysmal dilatation.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Coronary artery fistulas (CAF) are rare abnormalities that can be symptomatic or asymptomatic. Most drain into the right ventricle or pulmonary artery, though a variety of other drainage sites have been reported.
