    Most major intra-abdominal fistulas result from trauma or surgery. Spontaneous fistulas are rare with less than 100 reported cases since 1831. From a review of hospital records, five such spontaneous fistulas were identified among 215 cases of abdominal aortic aneurysm between 1975 and 1983....

    Congenital arteriovenous fistulas between the thoracic arteries and the systemic veins are rare, and in clinical terms may mimic patency of the arterial duct. We present a neonate with a large arteriovenous fistula between the left sixth intercostal artery and the left brachiocephalic vein, to...

    Pulmonary arteriovenous fistulas are vascular malformations, which, by virtue of producing abnormal vascular connections proximal to the units of gas exchange, result in intrapulmonary right-to-left shunting. These malformations or fistulas reflect at least in part disordered angiogenesis, and...

  • Ischemic steal syndrome following arm arteriovenous fistula for hemodialysis. Zamani, Payman; Kaufman, James; Kinlay, Scott // Vascular Medicine;2009, Vol. 14 Issue 4, p371 

    Arteriovenous fistulae in the arm are commonly used for hemodialysis in end-stage renal disease. Although physiological steal with reverse flow in the artery distal to the fistula is common, hand ischemia or infarction are rare. The ischemic steal syndrome (hand or forearm ischemia) is usually a...

    Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (Osier-Weber-Rendu disease) is associated with arteriovenous fistulas throughout the body that can cause hemodynamic abnormalities. Owing to their size and extent, surgical repair is often not feasible. A patient referred for presumed valvular heart disease...
