[Iliac arteriovenous fistula as a complication of lumbar disc surgery]

A 56-year-old man suffering from moderate dyspnea was hospitalised in the unit of surgery. Fifteen days before, he was subjected to a discectomy at L4-L5. The clinical examination demonstrated sinus tachycardia and hepatomegalia. An abdominal CT revealed an arteriovenous fistula between the right common iliac artery and vein that was subsequently confirmed by angiography. The patient underwent an endovascular stent-graft which was positioned at the level of the right common iliac artery related to the fistula. This treatment had an immediate successful effect leading the cardiac rhythm to be back to normal and the fistula to dry up
