Transarterial embolization of an extrahepatic portal vein aneurysm with arterioportal fistula

Abstract

We successfully performed transcatheter arterial embolization of an extrahepatic arterioportal fistula with a portal vein aneurysm. The fistula was considered secondary to cholecystectomy for cholecystolithiasis 5 years earlier. After occlusion of the fistula with platinum coils, the aneurysmal cavity thrombosed.
