Among the twenty-six carotid-cavernous fistulas(CCFs) admitted to Yeungnam University Hospital from Nov. 1985 to Apr. 1994, we managed successfully by a intraoperative embolization of the cavernous sinus through the superior ophthalmic vein in two cases, which were not occluded the fistula site by the percutaneous transarterial and transvenous embolization. We exposed the cavernous sinus epidurally through the pterional approach and embolized the cavernous sinus with Surgical through the small opening at the junction of the superior ophthalmic vein entering the cavernous sinus. The surgical results were excellent.
