Abstract

A rare case of right frontal bleed in elderly gentleman secondary to anterior cranial fossa dural arteriovenous fistula was detected on computed tomography angiogram, and complete endovascular embolization was achieved through ophthalmic arteries using glue as embolic material. Successful endovascular treatment along with surgical evacuation of subdural hematoma resulted in excellent recovery of the patient. Quick in‑and‑out approach using flow directed microcatheters and fast embolizing potential of glue may allow for rapid, safe, and successful embolization of such fistulas. The rarity of the location and the transarterial glue embolization of the nidus by micro catheter through both ophthalmic arteries makes this an interesting case for discussion.
