A complex cavernous sinus dural arteriovenous fistula secondary to covered stent placement for a traumatic carotid artery–cavernous sinus fistula

Case report

Restricted access

✓The authors present the case of a patient with a direct carotid artery–cavernous sinus fistula caused by head trauma in whom a self-expanding covered stent was successfully used to obliterate the fistula. However, at the 9-month follow-up an angiogram revealed a complex caroticocavernous fistula that was completely obliterated with Onyx 18 transarterially.

Abbreviations used in this paper: CA = carotid artery; CCF = caroticocavernous fistula; DAVF = dural arteriovenous fistula; ICA = internal CA; MMA = middle meningeal artery.
