The authors present a case of traumatic arteriovenous fistula of the internal iliac vessels treated with attempted surgical ligation of the common iliac artery and external iliac artery. The fistula persisted after the operation, and because the patient received no further treatment for the following 6 years, a venous outflow occlusion also developed as a result of high-flow angiopathy. Because the arterial route was eliminated at previous surgery, the fistula and venous occlusion were percutaneously treated via a transvenous approach.
