Fístula de la arteria coronaria

Es un defecto que generalmente ocurre cuando una de las arterias coronarias no logra formarse de manera apropiada durante el desarrollo del bebé. La fístula de la arteria coronaria es una conexión anormal entre una de las arterias coronarias y una cámara del corazón u otro vaso sanguíneo. Esta fístula es una afección poco común y los bebés que nacen con ella, algunas veces, tienen otros defectos cardíacos.
