Abstract

A 78-year-old gentleman presented with recurrent symptomatic hemarthrosis after total knee arthroplasty. His workup revealed an iatrogenic arteriovenous fistula (iAVF). The iAVF was embolized with the Onyx Liquid Embolization System with resolution of his symptoms up to 10 months of follow-up. This is the first description to our knowledge of an iatrogenic hemarthrosis after total knee arthroplasty successfully treated with Onyx solution embolization.
