A 25-year-old male patient underwent primary femoral artery repair following a gunshot injury. Postoperative examination showed a thrill and bruit in the right femoral region. Peripheral angiography performed under right femoral Doppler ultrasound guidance revealed an arteriovenous fistula between the right superficial femoral artery and femoral vein. Through selective angiography from the left femoral artery, an endovascular stent was implanted in the right femoral artery. Control contrast injection showed near-total closure of the fistula and Doppler ultrasonography on the following day showed total closure.
