A case of traumatic carotid-cavernous fistula treated by using Debrun's latex detachable balloon catheter is reported. The patient was a 28 year old man, who had complaints of headache, proptosis and chemosis of left eye 3 weeks after motor vehicle accident. The cerebral angiography showed direct fistula between intracavernous portion of internal carotid artery and cavernous sinus as high flow type. Following complete radiologic and neurologic examination, the fistulous opening was successfully occluded by Debrun's latex detachable balloon. Immediately after occlusion of the fistula the clinical symptoms were markedly improved.
