Abstract

A giant, high-flow coronary fistula is usually difficult to treat by transcatheter coil embolization, but the 0.052-inch Gianturco coil, which is larger and has a stronger shape memory than conventional coils, is now available. Using this device and additional conventional coils, a high-flow coronary artery fistula in a healthy 31-year-old man was successfully embolized. The new Gianturco coil widens the indication for the transcatheter embolization of coronary artery fistulas.
