Abstract

Most trauma induced fistulas are direct communications between the intracavernous carotid artery and the cavernous sinus. Theses abnormal communications are characterized by high pressure, high blood flow and a clinically obvious constellation of symptoms and signs. We here in report a patient with traumatic carotid cavernous sinus fistula(CCSF). who developed central retinal vein occlusion(CRVO) during detachable balloon embolization. The mechanism of CRVO occurring during detachable balloon embolization. The mechanism of CRVO occurring during detachable ballon embolization for CCSF was discussed. We report this case with the review of previous reports.
