Abstract

Although the efficacy and feasibility of coil embolization of coronary arteriovenous fistulas have been reported, the procedure may be complicated by migration of the coil into peripheral vessels or pulmonary arteries. We report two cases of successful coil embolization of such lesions using an interlocking detachable coil. This system can provide safer and more effective coil embolization in patients with coronary arteriovenous fistula.
