Temporal Artery Embolisation followed by Surgery for Traumatic Arteriovenous fistula

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


A 55-year-old male with history of a pulsating mass on the left frontal region of the head. the lump is caused by blunt trauma more than 10 years ago. Doppler ultrasound examination was obtained and shows a hyperflow vascular component. Computer Tomography Scanning with Contras (CTA) shows an arteriovenous fistula (AVF) coming from left temporal artery. We performed selective embolisation using hystoacryl (NBCA) and lipiodol, 2 weeks after that we performed excision there were minimal bleeding and satisfactory cosmetic surgical result. Histopathology examination showed there was no sign of malignancy. We coclude that selective embolisation before surgery for traumatic AVF gave us minimal bleeding with satisfaction cosmetic result.
