Abstract

The case of 61 year-old woman with congenital coronary artery fistula connecting left main coronary artery and the right atrium is presented. The patient was admitted to the Cardiology Department because of the first atrial fibrillation episode. During hospitalisation the congenital heart defect was diagnosed thanks echocardiography and multi-slice computed tomography. Three months later the percutaneous closure of the fistula with Amplatzer Duct Occluder was performed. The direct and 6-months results were very good.
