Case From the Eyes of an Anatomist: Fistula Between Proximal of Left Anterior Descending Artery to Pulmonary Artery

Musa Muhtaroglu, Sevda Lafci Fahrioglu, Sezgin Ilgi

Abstract


Advanced diagnostic systems and screening services for health care have made it possible to improve the detection of congenital cardio-vascular abnormalities, including coronary artery variations. Many coronary artery fistulas are congenital, and this can also be reported in patients with normal heart anatomy. In this report, we present a patient with a fistula between left anterior descending artery and pulmonary artery which was diagnosed incidentally with conventional angiography.
