Abstract

Traumatic arteriovenous fistulas of the neck are a relatively uncommon injury, whose ramifications can include immediate or delayed neurological insults, massive bleeding, or death. Angiography and embolization have been increasingly used to manage this complex injury pattern. In this particular case, the patient underwent management of bilateral communicating arteriovenous fistulae using a commercially available plug occlusion device. Epidemiology, with an emphasis on patient management and outcomes, is discussed.
