Superior mesenteric arteriovenous fistulae (SMAVFs) are extremely rare with no consensus about therapeutic indications and optimal approach. Here, we present a case of a symptomatic SMAVF found in a young patient a few years after a penetrating abdominal injury. Following a complex clinical management of the acute status, we successfully managed the fistula with 3 covered stents in 2 consecutive endovascular procedures. Technical details of the performed procedures, including the main pitfalls and chosen solutions, have been explored and discussed.

Abstract

Superior mesenteric arteriovenous fistulae (SMAVFs) are extremely rare with no consensus about therapeutic indications and optimal approach. Here, we present a case of a symptomatic SMAVF found in a young patient a few years after a penetrating abdominal injury. Following a complex clinical management of the acute status, we successfully managed the fistula with 3 covered stents in 2 consecutive endovascular procedures. Technical details of the performed procedures, including the main pitfalls and chosen solutions, have been explored and discussed.
