Abstract

Iliac arteriovenous (AV) fistula is rare after lumbar disk surgery. Traditionally, open repair through the arterial lumen was performed. We report endovascular exclusion of an iliac AV fistula in a 41-year-old woman 8 years after lumbar diskectomy. An angiogram showed an AV fistula connecting the right common iliac artery and vein. This was repaired with placement of two covered wall stents in the right common artery and external iliac artery, and embolization of the right internal iliac artery. Contrast medium-enhanced computed tomography scan at 5 months confirmed elimination of the AV fistula and right iliac artery patency. This technique should be considered in management of iliac AV fistulas.
