Congenital Right Coronary Artery to Right Ventricle Fistula Surgical Repair

<p>This video demonstrates a repair performed for a 7-year-old boy, who was referred from Mali with a suspected diagnosis of an atrial septal defect and ventricular septal defect. The echocardiogram showed a very dilated proximal right coronary artery, with a fistulous connexion to the right ventricle just above the tricuspid annulus. This was confirmed with cardiac computed tomography.<br>The authors illustrate the technical steps of the repair of this fistula on cardiopulmonary bypass with a beating heart, and they show how to preserve the anatomy of the right coronary artery.<br></p>
