Abstract: Here we report coronary artery fistulae (CAF) arising from a single coronary artery in a patient with rheumatic mitral stenosis. A 62-year-old woman underwent a coronary angiogram prior to mitral valve replacement (MVR). The left coronary artery angiogram showed the right coronary artery arising from the left anterior descending coronary artery. From the distal left circumflex artery, two CAF were seen draining into left atrium. The haemodynamically insignificant fistulae were left alone and patient underwent MVR. Such an association has not been reported so far. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
