Abstract

The authors report a case of adult pial arteriovenous fistula successfully treated by endovascular glue embolization. A 65-year-old man presented with left hemiparesis and was admitted to the local hospital. Computed tomography scan showed a cerebral hematoma. Cerebral angiography revealed pial single-channel arteriovenous fistula at the right angular artery. An emergent craniotomy was performed and hematoma was successfully evacuated on the next day. Since the post-operative angiography revealed a persisting arteriovenous fistula, the patient was referred to our institute for additional treatment. With the patient under local anesthesia, endovascular treatment was performed through the trans-femoral artery approach. A flow-guided microcatheter was successfully navigated just proximal to the fistula site. Histoacryl was then injected, and complete obliteration of the fistula was obtained. The subsequent course was uneventful and the patient returned to his daily life with only very mild left hemiparesis. Endovascular glue embolization plays an important role in the treatment of pial arteriovenous fistula.
