Congenital Left Ventricle-to-Coronary Sinus Fistula: A Rare Isolated Anomaly of the Coronary Sinus.
DOI: 10.1016/j.case.2017.04.007; PMCID: PMC6058247
Congenital anomalies of the coronary sinus (CS) are very uncommon. They can occur either in isolation or in association with other congenital heart defects. 1 Among those anomalies, congenital fistulae connecting the left ventricle and the CS represent a very rare entity. Most reported cases of CS fistula generally originate in the right coronary artery or left anterior descending coronary artery system. 2 We describe an extremely rare case of an isolated high-pressure congenital left ventricle–to–CS fistula as an anomaly of the CS in an otherwise asymptomatic child. The initial clinical presentation and follow-up, imaging studies, and plan for management are presented along with a review of relevant literature.
