Acquired right coronary artery fistula draining to the right ventricle: angiographic documentation of first appearance following reperfusion after acute myocardial infarction, with subsequent spontaneous closure
P Schanzenbächer, J Bauersachs

This is the first angiographic documentation of a coronary fistula acquired after myocardial infarction that subsequently closed spontaneously during follow up.
