1/3. Coronary-to-bronchial artery communication: report of two patients successfully treated by embolization.

    We report two cases of coronary-to-bronchial artery communication responsible for coronary steal. In both cases the anastomosis originated from the proximal circumflex artery and developed because of bronchiectasis. In both cases closure of the anastomosis was achieved successfully by embolization. To date, the patients remained free from symptoms.

2/3. Unusual aero-digestive foreign bodies: tribulations and tragedies.

    Aero-digestive foreign bodies are a common occurrence in infants and children. The manifestations, hazards and consequences depend upon the location, nature of the foreign body and the time lapse. This communication reports a series of four cases with unusual course and consequences of aero-digestive foreign bodies. These were generalized tetanus, hypernatremia and metabolic acidosis with intra-cranial hemorrhage and severe pneumonia and empyema. awareness of these consequences would help treating doctors to take appropriate steps in devising preventive and therapeutic strategies.

3/3. Visualization of left bronchial-to-coronary artery communication after distal bronchial artery embolization for bronchiectasis.

    We present a 44-year-old woman in whom a bronchial-to-coronary artery communication via the conus branch was discovered after distal bronchial artery embolization with gelatin sponge for hemoptysis. If this bronchial-to-coronary artery anastomosis, not visible prior to embolization, had been inadvertently embolized, the patient could have developed a myocardial infarction. To reduce the likelihood of a serious complication, the possibility of this anastomosis should be kept in mind and angiography should be repeated before attempting proximal bronchial artery embolization.
