Abstract

Coronary arteriovenous fistulas (CAVFs) are uncommon in children and are rarely reported in neonates. Larger fistulas usually require either surgical closure or percutaneous closure using a variety of different devices. Device closure of large fistulas in the immediate neonatal period has not been reported. We report the first case of a gigantic CAVF in a 12-day-old neonate (2.4 kg) where successful device closure was achieved in a staged approach using a 12 mm Amplatzer muscular VSD device, seven flipper coils, a 10/8 mm Amplatzer duct occluder device, as well as a 9 mm Gianturco Grifka vascular occlusion device. No complications were encountered and the patient was subsequently weaned off the ventilator.
