Abstract

A 31-year-old male with pulmonary atresia, ventricular septal defect presented with exercise intolerance and severe cyanosis. A restrictive coronary-pulmonary artery fistula was identified as the main source of pulmonary blood flow. We report transcatheter stent implantation in the fistula to augment pulmonary flow as a palliative management option in the adult patient with complex congenital heart disease.
