A case of traumatic carotico-cavernous fistula was managed by intravascular occlusion using detachable balloon catheter. The great advantage of this technique is that the cerebral blood flow can usually be preserved after the occlusion of the fistula. The fistula was obliterated by this procedure. The radiological feature, symptomatology and management were discussed with brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Traumatic carotico-cavernous fistula; Detachable balloon catheter; Radiologic feature; Symptomatology; Management
