Abstract

The shunt flow from the coronary artery to pulmonary arteries was evaluated in 6 patients with coronary-pulmonary fistula by lung perfusion scintigraphy with technetium-99m macroaggregated albumin. In 2 patients, whose degree of visualization of pulmonary arteries by coronary angiography was relatively high, lung perfusion scintigrams demonstrated the defects at the distal of coronary-pulmonary fistulas.
