Abstract

This case report describes a new approach to repair a femoral arteriovenous fistula with a transluminally placed intraarterial graft-covered stent. A balloon-expandable stented polytetrafluoroethylene graft was inserted percutaneously to obliterate an arteriovenous fistula after a bullet injured the left superficial femoral artery and vein of an 18-year-old man. Follow-up duplex ultrasonography at 5 months demonstrated patency and luminal integrity of the involved artery and vein, with resolution of the associated pseudoaneurysm. Additional follow-up will be needed to further substantiate the utility of this minimally invasive procedure in the treatment of traumatic arterial injuries.
