abstract

  • We discuss the treatment of a fistula located between the aorta and inferior vena cava which was caused by trauma. Fewer than 30 such cases have been reported in the English literature. A juxtarenal pseudoaneurysm and aortocaval fistula resulting from a gunshot wound, unrecognized upon the initial presentation of the patient, is reported herein.
