Abstract

Communications between the left ventricle and the right atrium are rare. A left ventricle to coronary sinus fistula is an extremely rare form of left ventricular-right atrial shunt. This is the first report of such a shunt following myocardial infarction, and emphasizes the use of two-dimensional and pulsed Doppler echocardiography in making the diagnosis.
