Ateşli Silah Yaralanmasina Bağli Geç Dönem Gelişen Subklavian Arter-Ven Fistülü
Traumatic arterio-venous fistula usually results from gunshot wounds. A-V fistula may be diagnosed several years after trauma. Most of the A-V fistulas are seen at lower extremities but Subclavian A-V fistula is less common in general. A 81 year old woman was admitted to hospital with swelling at right anterior portion of neck which happened 30 years ago because of gunshot wound.. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance (MR) angiography showed arteriovenous fistula between distal part of right subclavian artery and subclavian vein. Endovascular surgery was planned, but patient and her relatives did not accept operation. We want to report an arteriovenous fistula which was happened 30 years before due to gunshot wound.
