Abstract

Congenital coronary artery anomalies are of major significance in clinical cardiology and cardiac surgery due to their association with myocardial ischaemia and sudden death. Having a multidisciplinary approach in managing complex congenital conditions and including patients in the management decisions is essential for good doctor-patient relationship. Here within, we describe a complex coronary artery fistula leading to myocardial steal.
