Abstract

A 46-year-old man was admitted with chief complaint of chest pain and fatigue on exertion for the
last 2 years. Physical examination was normal. Thransthoracic echocardiography showed mild right
ventricular dilatation and ejection fraction of 50%. Coronary angiogram (CAG) was done that revealed
significant lesion at mid part of left anterior descending artery (LAD) and a fistula arising from the
mid part of LAD artery communicating with main pulmonary artery. Transcatheter coil embolism was
successfully performed. The patient was free of symptoms during 12 months follow up.
