Late development of renal arteriovenous fistula following gunshot trauma--a case report


, : Late development of renal arteriovenous fistula following gunshot trauma--a case report. Angiology 49(5): 415-418

A 43-year-old man presenting with symptoms of congestive heart failure, cardiomegaly, and impaired left ventricular (LV) function was diagnosed as having a huge left renal arteriovenous (AV) fistula. The AV fistula might be attributed to a gunshot wound suffered during his military service twenty years ago. Percutaneous transcatheter arterial embolization utilizing multiple spring coils in conjunction with cyanoacrylic glue successfully occluded the fistula, with subsequent improvement of LV function and reduction of LV size on his serial echocardiographic follow-up.
