Abstract

A coronary-bronchial fistula and aneurysmal dilatation of the proximal part of the fistula was successfully closed using an autologous vein graft- coated stent (Palmaz-Schatz stent). This is the first report that demonstrates the feasibility of the vein-coated stent for the treatment of congenital disease.
