Abstract: Management of coronary artery fistula (CAF) is based on obliterating the fistula communication between the cardiac arteries and other thoracic vessels. We describe the presentation of an 85-year-old female with progressive exertional dyspnea on a background of a long standing left anterior descending diagonal to pulmonary artery fistula. We utilized neuro-interventional techniques to perform coil embolization via use of a Scepter XC dual lumen micro catheter. Dual lumen balloon catheters allow for super-selective artery interrogation, stability of balloon positioning, with less trauma to vessel architecture and accurate embolization. There were no complications and the patient reported improvement of symptoms on review.
