Transvenous Fogarty balloon catheter occlusion of an iatrogenic innominate artery to innominate vein fistula



Transvenous Fogarty balloon catheter occlusion of an iatrogenic innominate artery to innominate vein fistula



Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology 16(5): 316-318



Transvenous embolization therapy is reported in a patient who developed a fistula from the innominate artery to the innominate vein as a complication of permanent cardiac pacemaker insertion. A transarterial approach at occlusion was unfavorable due to previous difficult catheterizations, and the patient's poor clinical condition precluded alternative operative intervention. The fistula was successfully closed by transvenous placement of a Fogarty nondetachable balloon catheter after coil and detectable balloon placement attempts were unsuccessful.
