A patient is described who developed high-output congestive failure following surgery to a lumbar disc. Diagnosis of arteriovenous fistula was suggested by the signs of high-output state and a continuous bruit heard over the tow back sear. Confirmation was demonstrated by abdominal aortography. Corrective surgery resulted in resolution of congestive failure.

    The optimal vascular access for chronic maintenance hemodialysis is the arteriovenous fistula (AVF). Several studies suggest a role for antiplatelet agents in the prevention of primary AVF failure. A double-blind, randomized trial was conducted to assess the efficacy and safety of clopidogrel in...

    Vein of Galen aneurysmal malformations (VGAMs) are choroidal arteriovenous malformations that develop during an early embryonic stage. Although recent reports have shown improved outcome for these patients, the overall outcome still is poor. In this study, we evaluated the clinical, imaging, and...
