Abstract

Patients with pulmonary atresia and ventricular septal defect (PA/VSD) demonstrate a wide variety of pulmonary and coronary arteries; additionally, coronary pulmonary artery fistula (CPAF) is a rare manifestation of PA/VSD and is seldom detected during pregnancy. In this report, we present a case of prenatal diagnosis of CPAF in PA/VSD with showing the present impactful images of CPAF in a neonate, which were obtained by using fetal echocardiography and postnatal electrocardiography-gated 320-row computed tomography. Prenatal diagnosis of CPAF can facilitate the provision of better therapeutic strategies after birth.
