Coronary Cameral Fistulae a Scarce Entity by  Ranjan Modi in ACR - Lupine Publishers

Coronary artery fistulae are communication between coronary arteries and other structures like cardiac chamber (coronary cameral fistula) or a vein (coronary arteriovenous fistula) [1]. Coronary fistulae account for 0.2 to 0.4% of the congenital cardiac abnormalities. Spontaneous closure occurs in 23% of small fistulae, primarily those arising from left coronary system in which conservative management may be appropriate [2]. Though surgery still remains the main stay of treatment, interventional closure seems to be an appropriate choice. We present a 20 day old male baby born to non consangious marriage. The neonate was full term delivery in the hospital. Prenatal history was uneventful with no history of any drug intake during pregnancy and regular antenatal care visits with complete immunizations. The baby presented with history of feeding difficulty since birth, no history of recurrent chest infections, no suck rest suck cycle and no cyanosis. The patient had tachycardia with heart rate of 140/min and tachypnoea with respiratory rate of 36/min on examination, blood pressure of 90/60 mmHg - Lupine Publishers.
