Among the many causes of Post Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty angina (Post PTCA angina), stent restenosis is the most important cause. Other causes include incomplete revascularization, microvascular angina, and appearance of new lesions. Coronary arterio-venous (A-V) fistula is a rare cause of angina following PTCA. We hereby report a case of post-PTCA angina caused by coronary A-V fistula.
