Abstract

Coronary artery fistulas have been traditionally diagnosed by angiography. This report describes a congenital and a traumatic coronary artery fistula diagnosed by transesophageal echocardiography. Transesophageal echocardiography was superior to transthoracic echocardiography in both cases and to angiography in one case. Transesophageal echocardiography may now be the procedure of choice in diagnosing coronary fistula.
