Abstract

Ectasia at the proximal arterial structures is a phenomenon secondary to distal arteriovenous (AV) fistulae and proximal arterial structures must be evaluated carefully prior to an intervention to the lesion especially in long lasting AV fistulae. In this report we present the images of a 58-year-old male patient with a 25-year history of gun shot injury and arteriovenous fistula formation at the femoral region.
