CUERVO-QUINTERO, Luna M. et al. Endovascular management of a post-traumatic carotid-jugular fistula. Rev. mex. angiol. [online]. 2023, vol.51, n.4, pp.139-142.  Epub 16-Abr-2024. ISSN 2696-130X.


Carotid-jugular fistula represent 4% of all traumatic arteriovenous fistulas. Its main cause is penetrating injury caused by a sharp weapon followed by firearm injury; in the last few years, iatrogenic injuries have played an important role in this pathology.


To communicate the diagnosis and endovascular therapeutic approach of post-traumatic jugular carotid fistula.


We report a case of a 58 year old man who suffers a penetrating trauma due to a sharp weapon, initially without evidence of vascular compromise and who later develops this complication.


The patient underwent endovascular surgery with embolization of the fistula and pseudoaneurysm using coils, the patient required a second intervention in which obliteration of the Onyx® pseudoaneurysm was performed with optimal evolution in outpatient follow-up.


Endovascular management is positioned as the management standard in hemodynamically stable patients due to low morbidity and mortality, replicability, and use in different vascular segments.
