The authors believe this to be the first published case in which a deep hypothermic cardiopulmonary bypass was used to facilitate resection of a large parenchymal arteriovenous fistula. The use of this procedure facilitated resection of the lesion by allowing compression and manipulation of large venous varices that were overlying the deeper arterial feeding vessels. The surgical rationale, technique, and intra- and postoperative management are discussed.
