Abstract

Objective. The purpose of this article is to describe the evaluation of congenital coronary artery fistulas (CAFs) with MDCT angiography with ECG gating (MDCTA), including the clinical manifestations, scanning techniques, differential diagnosis, and other imaging methods that may be used. Conclusion. Congenital CAFs are rare coronary artery anomalies of termination. MDCTA is a first-line modality for pretreatment planning, and imaging findings should be recognized because CAFs may be detected incidentally.
