Özet

We used an unconventional endovascular approach for the treatment of traumatic carotid cavernous fistula. A patient with a large high-flow shunt was successfully treated by trapping the fistula using a combination of proximal balloon occlusion and distal coil embolization. The latter was achieved following retrograde catheterization of the distal parent vessel via the ipsilateral vertebral artery. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
