Coronary artery fistula
Treatment & Care
Can a coronary artery fistula be fixed?
A small fistula that’s not causing symptoms usually won’t need treatment and some small fistulas will close on their own. Often even if they don’t close, they will never cause symptoms or need treatment.
An infant who has a larger fistula may need to have surgery to close the abnormal connection. The surgeon closes the site with a patch or stitches.
