Abstract

The incidence of iatrogenic femoral arteriovenous fistulas (IFAVF) has increased in contemporary practice. We herein report the case of a 55-year-old obese woman with significant surgical comorbidities who sustained an IFAVF between the superficial femoral artery (SFA) and the femoral vein. Given her substantial risk factors, she was treated with a SFA stent-graft (iCast 6 ×- 22 mm) using a contralateral endovascular approach. She remains asymptomatic at 15 months with ongoing resolution of the AVF. This report highlights the utility of stent-graft repair of an IFAVF in high surgical risk patients or in those with "hostile" anatomy.
