Abstract

Cervical vertebral arteriovenous fistulas (VAFs) are rare clinical entities between the vertebral artery and veins of the neighborhood. We report the first approach in the literature experience in the treatment of high-flow VAF caused by percutaneous catheterization of the internal jugular vein, which was successfully occluded with coils and Solitaire AB neurovascular remodeling device system that can be fully retrieved even when fully deployed for procedural control. Complete angiographic and clinical cure was achieved, and no complications related to the new embolization procedure occurred.
