Coronary artery fistulae are rare cardiac anomalies, most of which will drain to right ventricle (RV) or pulmonary artery. Herein we present a rare case of such fistulae occurred in a 36-year-old patient who presented with frequent atypical chest pain and dyspnea on exertion for more than 3 months.
We also report the results of the operation done on the beating heart. The patient's postoperative course was uneventful and we followed him up to 8 months after the operation.
