Middle meningeal arteriovenous fistula (MM-AVF) is rare; however, it is sometimes followed by intracranial hemorrhage or progressive symptoms caused by abnormal shunt flow. Radiological examination and endovascular treatment for this condition have recently advanced; thus, we here described the pathogenesis, clinical features, and appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic management of MM-AVF. We also reviewed the literature of the past 35 years, which reported on 30 cases of MM-AVF.

The preferred method for treating complex dural arteriovenous fistulae of the transverse and sigmoid sinuses is via endovascular, transarterial embolization using liquid embolysate. However, this trea...
Intraorbital arteriovenous fistula is a rare vascular disease characterized by an acquired arteriovenous communication without direct cavernous sinus involvement. Intraorbital arteriovenous fistula ma...
Orbital arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is a rare entity with only 17 cases reported so far. Arteriovenous hemangioma is a distinct entity of angioma that most frequently affects the skin. However, to our...
To understand the experience of people with chronic kidney disease using arteriovenous fistula.
Intracranial dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) are an uncommon pathology, and a sphenoparietal drainage pattern is certainly rare. We present a case of a de novo sphenoparietal dural arteriovenous ...
40000 patients are hemodialysis each year in France . In the case of chronic care, 78% of patients have an arteriovenous fistula. In order to perform the hemodialysis session, 2 technique...
A well-functioning vascular access is essential for effective hemodialysis. The native arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is the preferred vascular access because of the lower thrombosis and infe...
Isometric exercise has been shown to increase the diameter and the blood flow rate of forearm veins.At present, more studies focus on the perioperative period to promote the maturation of ...
The purpose of this study is assessment of safety, efficacy, and short-term outcome of SQUID™ in the embolization of Dural Arteriovenous Fistula
Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is now the optimal method of obtaining vascular access for dialysis. Measures such as systemic anticoagulation have been proposed as means of increasing patency...
An abnormal direct communication between an artery and a vein without passing through the CAPILLARIES. An A-V fistula usually leads to the formation of a dilated sac-like connection, arteriovenous aneurysm. The locations and size of the shunts determine the degree of effects on the cardiovascular functions such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEART RATE.
A vessel that directly interconnects an artery and a vein, and that acts as a shunt to bypass the capillary bed. Not to be confused with surgical anastomosis, nor with arteriovenous fistula.
Abnormal formation of blood vessels that shunt arterial blood directly into veins without passing through the CAPILLARIES. They usually are crooked, dilated, and with thick vessel walls. A common type is the congenital arteriovenous fistula. The lack of blood flow and oxygen in the capillaries can lead to tissue damage in the affected areas.
An abnormal anatomical passage between the INTESTINE, and another segment of the intestine or other organs. External intestinal fistula is connected to the SKIN (enterocutaneous fistula). Internal intestinal fistula can be connected to a number of organs, such as STOMACH (gastrocolic fistula), the BILIARY TRACT (cholecystoduodenal fistula), or the URINARY BLADDER of the URINARY TRACT (colovesical fistula). Risk factors include inflammatory processes, cancer, radiation treatment, and surgical misadventures (MEDICAL ERRORS).
An abnormal anatomical passage that connects the VAGINA to other organs, such as the bladder (VESICOVAGINAL FISTULA) or the rectum (RECTOVAGINAL FISTULA).
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
