Embolization of a carotid cavernous fistula(CCF) by means of a detachable balloon is a well-established method for treating CCFs while preserving a patent parent internal carotid artery(ICA). However, failure to embolize the CCF may occur on a few occasions. Herein we describe a stent-assisted Guglielmi detachable coil embolization that completely occludes the fistulous opening rather than fills the cavernous sinus. By applying this technique, we successfully treated a CCF, without compromise of the parent ICA in patients who has failed with balloon technique previously.
Key Words: Carotid cavernous fistula; Embolization; Stenting
