  • This study shows the frequency and types of carotid-cavernous fistula (CCF) complications that occurred during endovascular treatment. Transarterial endovascular surgeries involving the anterior circulation were performed for 1071 cases at our hospitals during four years. CCFs occurred in nine of 1071 cases (0.8%). CCF risk factors were female sex (p = 0.032), aneurysmal location in the paraclinoid portion (p < 0.001), and use of a distal access catheter (DAC) (p < 0.001). There were no… CONTINUE READING
