AIM. To assess the functionality of congenital coronary artery fistulas (CAFs) using adenosine stress N-13-ammonia positron emission tomography computed tomography (PET-CT).. METHODS. Congenital CAFs were incidentally detected during coronary angiography (CAG) procedures in 11 adult patients (six males and five females) with a mean age of 64.3 years (range 41-81). Patients were collected from three institutes in the Netherlands. The characteristics of the fistulas (origin, pathway and termination), multiplicity of the origins and pathways of the fistulous vessels were assessed by CAG. Five patients underwent adenosine pharmacologic stress N-13-ammonia PET-CT to assess myocardial perfusion and the functional behavior of the fistula.. RESULTS. Eleven patients with 12 CAFs, 10 unilateral and one bilateral, originating from the left anterior descending coronary artery (n = 8), right coronary artery (n = 2) and circumflex (n = 2). All fistulas were of the vascular type, terminating into either the ...
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Congenital coronary artery fistula (CAF) is an uncommon anomaly. It can become symptomatic, associated with significant morbidity and mortality. We report our experience in percutaneous treatment of CAF. METHODS AND RESULTS Four patients with five CAFs were treated. All were symptomatic at admission. Four fistulas rose from the left anterior descending coronary artery. The fifth originated from the right coronary sinus. All drained into the pulmonary artery. Percutaneous treatment was performed using microcoils in two cases and Hydrocoils in the last two patients (three fistulas). A complete occlusion was achieved in all. There was no complication related with the procedure, and all were asymptomatic at the follow-up. CONCLUSIONS Transcatheter closure of CAFs with microcoils/Hydrocoils is feasible and safe in the anatomically suitable vessels, with low rates of complications. Percutaneous treatment with microcoils/Hydrocoils is a valid option in symptomatic patients.
A case of right coronary to left ventricular fistula was diagnosed by cross sectional and Doppler echocardiography. The origin and site of entry into the left ventricle of the enlarged right coronary artery were shown by cross sectional echocardiography. Diastolic flow was detected in the left ventricle by both pulsed and continuous Doppler echocardiography. The fistula was confirmed by cardiac catheterisation and was successfully closed at operation. ...

In addition to the physical impact of incontinence, it leaves many women ostracised from their families and communities. Action on Fistula has been created to reach and treat women suffering the consequences of this condition.. "We know that one of the key ...
A fistula is an abnormal communication between two internal organs, or from an organ to the outside of the body. Infection, inflammatory disease (e.g., Crohns disease), tumors, trauma, and surgery may lead to a fistula. The gastrointestinal tract (particularly the duodenum), pancreas, bladder, and female genital tract are particularly susceptible. Among the many places in the body where fistulas can occur are: ...

Multiple coronary artery fistulae arising from all 3 major coronary arteries emptying into the LV are extremely rare. There are case reports and small series that have demonstrated inducible ischemia on myocardial nuclear studies.1 There are no reports that demonstrate the subendocardial nature of inducible ischemia as observed in this case by cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging. It is commonly believed that the perfusion defect corresponds to the region of myocardium that is bypassed by the intramyocardial fistulae. Adenosine-induced hyperemia decreases the diastolic perfusion gradient, increasing shunting by the fistulae and hence causing a coronary steal phenomenon. This steal phenomenon explains the clinical finding that sublingual nitrates exacerbate ischemic symptoms. In the present case, symptoms were abolished by β-blockade.. ...
Im glad to hear that things seem to be settling and I really hope they stay that way so that you and hubby can carry on with your family plans. I just want to say that getting pregnant with fistula can turn out to be a nightmare so make sure that you have all your docs on board when you do decide to go ahead with baby plans. Im not trying to be negative, its just that I went through pregnancy last year with 4-6 active fistulas (Sawyer was a surprise... I certainly wouldnt have planned him with crazy active dosease). Anyways I ended up having to have 3 drainage under anesthetic while pregnant and as I got bigger...the pressure of the baby kept closing off tracts and creating more assesses.

As I mentioned a month ago I was a guinea pig on the renal ultrasound course today and had my fistula scanned by 14 post-grad doctors planning to specialize in renal medicine. The scanning itself was fascinating, seeing the veins and arteries in my arm, watching the blood flow etc, though I was a little unnerved when the tutor mentioned that there is an area of thickening or possible thrombosis in the artery again (I had to have fistula angioplasty earlier this year when the fistula stopped working due to thrombosis) - however he did say that the fistula is still patent and the blood flow sufficient at the moment. Ill need to be vigilant with checking the bruit ...

Long-term use of an arteriovenous (AV) fistula for dialysis requires the ability of the dialysis staff to cannulate the fistula with large-bore needles three times a week. One complication of unsuccessful fistula cannulation is a needle infiltration, resulting in development of a subcutaneous hematoma, and precluding fistula use until resolution of the hematoma. Needle infiltrations of fistulas may result in the temporary inability to use the fistula for dialysis and may lead to fistula thrombosis, necessitating tunneled catheter use for maintenance hemodialysis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the risk factors for fistula infiltrations, and the clinical consequences arising from this complication. Using a prospective, computerized vascular access database, we identified all hemodialysis patients who suffered a fistula infiltration during a 5-year period (1/1/00-12/31/04) severe enough to require a follow-up diagnostic test, surgery appointment, or an intervention. This patient group ...

In practice fistula surgery leads to radical excision & large wounds at anal and perianal region which leaves patient in severe post operative pain and pain during dressings. These procedures are associated with of deformities due to excision of tissue and scaring. Patient requires long hospitalization for 6 - 8 days or longer. Dressing is required for long time 4- 6 weeks / months. In spite of all these agonizing problems there is high risk of recurrence and incontinence. The Minimum Invasive endoscopy surgery for fistula depends on skill of fistuloscopy which has very short learning curve. The procedure requires one day hospitalization, no radical excision of tissue, no potential danger of incontinence, no painful dressings and heals in short duration. A new procedure had minimum of 2 years follow up, had proved its efficacy. It had 91 % success rate in difficult problems like high, long, complex recurrent, horse shoe fistula. It is choice of the patient even after recurrence. Non touch technique to

My youngest daughter has an enlarged right coronary artery with a fistula that sends blood to the wrong part of her heart. We think she was probably not born with it because it never surfaced until junior high. (Actually after a very severe case of mono) Shes had three unsuccessful procedures where doctors tried to coil occlude the fistula via heart cath. The last attempt was almost 5 years ago. After telling us that it would only get worse, not better, theyre now saying shed be better off not fooling with it again. The last procedure took 8 hrs and they inserted 7 caths to work through. She is now 19 years old and scared to death to go back to a cardiologist. They originally told us that if she was ever able to get insurance due to this condition, it would cost a fortune. Since shes a full-time student shes still on our policy. We live in TN and the first 2 procedures were done here. We took her to TX for the last. Anyone familiar with this type of problem? We were told that opened heart ...

it seems you have perianal crohns. You should try to get this cleared up because it can get worse. That means doing all mentioned such as getting the remicade as soon as possible. If its infected you might also need a antibiotic. Take sitz bath every few hours. The small intestine issue could be contributing manifesting itself downward to the rectum, or it could be a bacteria clogging things there. You should get a surgeon to look at the fistula, asap and find out whatever they want to do to heal it. Another post had something about using a foam product. Try everything... even if you need to ask it to be stitched. Many times its been said not to mess with it surgically so you definetl need advice from someone who actually closed there fistula without further problems and the only drug I know of is remicade which might give you a chance to save the rectum area. Strongly suggest start remicade now infection or not, as well as all the above continuously ...

I saw my doctor about a week and a half ago, after having a lot of pain and missing a day of work so I could rest and take some Percocet. She and I both thought I had a fistula (not going to describe that here, other than to say its a major pain in the bum!). I was supposed to see my surgeon, but he referred me to a colon-rectal surgeon. I was able to get in this past Thurs., due to a cancellation. Im so glad I was able to get in to see an expert in my issues! Good news was, there is no fistula. There are some other minor problems that could be fixed with surgery, but since I had radiation there is a risk that the area wouldnt heal. Surgery of a radiated area is always risky due to the damage done to the skin. So no surgery! Im so glad! ...

We report a case of 70-year-old woman who had bilateral coronary arteriovenous fistula(CAVF) and treated with percutaneous transcatheter coil embolization. Enlarged LV and reduced global LV systolic function were demonstrated on transthoracic echocardiography. Coronary angiography revealed a large coronary arteriovenous fistula from the right coronary artery to the main pulmonary artery and a small fistula from the left coronary artery to the main pulmonary artery. Percutaneous transcatheter coil embolization for CAVF from the right coronary artery to the main pulmonary artery was successfully performed with symptomatic improvement. ...
A pancreatic fistula is an abnormal communication between the pancreas and other organs due to leakage of pancreatic secretions from damaged pancreatic ducts. An external pancreatic fistula is one that communicates with the skin, and is also known as a pancreaticocutaneous fistula, whereas an internal pancreatic fistula communicates with other internal organs or spaces. Pancreatic fistulas can be caused by pancreatic disease, trauma, or surgery. An external pancreatic fistula is an abnormal communication between the pancreas (actually pancreatic duct) and the exterior of the body via the abdominal wall. Loss of bicarbonate-rich pancreatic fluid via a pancreatic fistula can result in a hyperchloraemic or normal anion gap metabolic acidosis. Loss of a small volume of fluid will not cause a problem but an acidosis is common if the volume of pancreatic fluid lost from the body is large. First described by Smith (1953), and elaborated upon by Cameron et al. (1976), internal pancreatic fistulas can ...

Non-penetrating chest trauma commonly causes a wide variety of cardiac injuries. Disruption of the aortic valve with resultant aortic regurgitation is not uncommon; conversely, a sinus of Valsalva-right atrial fistula, in the absence of a congenital sinus of Valsalva aneurysm, has been reported only once previously. This report describes the detection by preoperative cardiac catheterisation of both aortic regurgitation, and a sinus of Valsalva-right atrial fistula after blunt chest trauma, and its surgical management. The need for preoperative cardiac catheterisation in patients suffering from non-penetrating cardiac trauma is emphasised, even when the diagnosis appears cleas, because of the diverse nature and possible multiplicity of cardiac lesions. ...
Treatment for fistula varies depending on the cause and extent of the fistula, but often involves surgical intervention combined with antibiotic therapy. Typically the first step in treating a fistula is an examination by a doctor to determine the extent and "path" that the fistula takes through the tissue. In some cases the fistula is temporarily covered, for example a fistula caused by cleft palate is often treated with a palatal obturator to delay the need for surgery to a more appropriate age. Surgery is often required to assure adequate drainage of the fistula (so that pus may escape without forming an abscess). Various surgical procedures are commonly used, most commonly fistulotomy, placement of a seton (a cord that is passed through the path of the fistula to keep it open for draining), or an endorectal flap procedure (where healthy tissue is pulled over the internal side of the fistula to keep feces or other material from reinfecting the channel). Treatment involves filling the fistula ...
We report the case of a 54-year-old man, waitlisted for lung transplantation with a diagnosis of end-stage diffuse bronchiectasis. On arrival at the catheterization laboratory for coronary angiography prior to transplantation, the patient developed a hypertensive crisis (BP 200/110mmHg), at which stage he reported habitually uncontrolled blood pressure. Coronary angiography revealed coronary arteries free of lesions and a coronary artery fistula emerging from the left common trunk (LCT), 3mm in caliber at the proximal end and 2mm at the most distal end (Video 1, Appendix), with drainage to the left pulmonary artery, causing hemodynamic alterations in the form of high cardiac output (thermodilution 7.86l/min). Increased pulmonary pressures (mPAP 71mmHg, PVR 5.5 Wood units [WU]) associated with pulmonary hyperflow and significant diastolic dysfunction due to hypertensive heart disease evidenced in the rest of the study data (mean PCP 35mmHg and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure [LVEDP] ...
Coronary-pulmonary artery fistula is an uncommon cardiac anomaly, usually congenital. Most coronary-pulmonary artery fistulas are clinically and haemodynamically insignificant and are usually found incidentally. This report describes a case of complex coronary-pulmonary artery fistula with two feeding vessels of separate origins: one from the proximal part of the left anterior descending artery and another arising from the right aortic cusp. The complex anatomy of the fistula was shown in detail by multidetector computed tomography using multiplanar reconstruction and 3D volume rendering techniques.. ...

Press Release issued Jan 3, 2018: Arteriovenous Fistula is a disruption of blood flow due to abnormal connection between a vein and artery. In condition of arteriovenous fistula, the blood flows directly from arteries to the vein, bypassing capillaries. Thus, capillary tissues receive less oxygen supply (i.e. blood supply) and increase the risk of blood pressure problem. Arteriovenous fistula can be congenital or acquired. Congenital fistula is formed during fatal development and majorly affects lower extremities of blood vessels.
MUSIC PLAYING] GIUSEPPE LANZINO: Dural fistulas are uncommon lesions, but it is very important for physicians to be aware of these possibilities because, quite often, patients can present with symptoms that might mimic more common conditions and may be misdiagnosed for a long period of time unless the possibility of a dural fistula is entertained early on in the course. A dural AV fistula is an abnormal communication between an artery and a vein, and they can occur both in the brain or in and around the spinal cord. The most common type of fistula is the so-called transverse sigmoid sinus fistula, and these patients often present with a bruit. Typically, if there is a fistula, a bruit can be also heard with a stethoscope, right in the mastoid area. And thats a fairly reliable sign. There are other fistulas located in the region of the cavernous sinus. They can present with ocular symptoms, paralysis of eye movement, decreased vision, redness of the eye and the conjunctiva. Its very common for ...
