We report a 76-year-old female with Takayasu arteritis who was found to have multiple coronary arteriovenous fistulas (CAVFs), a pulmonary-to-systemic ratio of 2:1, and aortic valve insufficiency. Aortic valve replacement and ligation of multiple CAVFs with cardiopulmonary bypass were performed under cardioplegic arrest, thus minimizing coronary steal. doi: 10.1111/jocs.12102 (J Card Surg 2013;28:380–382)
