Abstract

Iatrogenic Coronary arteriovenous fistula (CAVF) is a rare complication of coronary intervention. Although acquired CAVF during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of chronic total occlusion (CTO) has been reported, CAVF resulting from contrast injection into a right coronary artery (RCA) CTO during diagnostic coronary angiography is very rare.
