Coronary Fistula Closure

A coronary fistula is an abnormal connection between a coronary artery and a chamber of the heart or another vessel. Except for very small fistulae, they generally need to be repaired. Emory offers a minimally invasive procedure in which a catheter is advanced through a vein to the site of the fistula and a wire coil is placed to block the abnormal opening.
