An 8-year-old girl with a giant congenital isolated coronary-cameral fistula was severely symptomatic for heart failure. The fistula originated from the left anterior descending coronary artery that was aneurysmal, and drained into the right ventricle (RV). She was successfully treated with a transcatheter closure using the Amplatzer duct occluder (prostheses AGA-CIA 4 mm). The procedure provided sustained clinical improvement as the patient remained asymptomatic and in NYHA class I during follow-up.
