A 59-year-old male was admitted because of severe chest pain and diagnosed as inferior myocardial infarction by ECG and enzymologically, who had a Levine grade II continuous murmur in the left second intercostal space at the left sternal border. Cardiac catheterization revealed a 8% left to right shunt at pulmonary artery. Selective coronary cineangiography revealed left anterior descending-to-main pulmonary artery and left circumflex-to-main pulmonary artery fistulas, and severe atherosclerotic stenosis at right coronary and left anterior descending arteries. Operation was performed simultaneously, closure of two drainage orifices of the fistulous vessels through pulmonary arteriotomy and aortocoronary bypass grafting to left anterior descending under cardiopulmonary bypass. The postoperative course was uneventful, and the murmur was disappeared.
