Abstract

An internal mammary artery-to-innominate vein fistula, a rare complication of subclavian vein central venous pressure catheter insertion, was closed without surgery by percutaneous angiographic techniques. In this case and in similar cases of arteriovenous fistulas, percutaneous angiographic therapy can be both safe and effective and can lead to significant reductions in costs, hospitalization, and patient trauma.
