Multivessel Coronary-cameral Fistulas Associated With Ventricular Fibrillation: An Unusual Case

Coronary-cameral fistula (CCF) is a rare connection between a coronary artery and a chamber of the heart. It is mostly deriving from right coronary artery and draining into right ventricle. However, CCF originating from all of the tree major coronary vessels and draining into left heart is an extremely rare coronary artery malformation. A 47 year-old-man who admitted to our clinic with angina pectoris and positive cardiac marker suddenly developed ventricular fibrillation while preparing for coronary catheterization. He was defibrillated successfully, restoring sinus rhythm. Coronary angiography revealed normal epicardial coronary arteries with multiple diffuse fistulas originating from both right and left coronary artery systems terminating in left ventricle. This is a very rare case of multiple coronary-cameral fistulas originating from all epicardial coronary arteries associated with myocardial ischemia and ventricular fibrillation.
