Abstract.

Carotid-cavernous fistulae are abnormal communication in cavernous sinus area. They are classified upon different criteria – etiology, flow or angiographic architectonic. Different neurointerventional technique are used today for transcatheter embolization of those fistula. We describe a case from our practice of successful embolization of posttraumatic carotid-cavernous fistula in 27 years male. Onyx is used to obtain total occlusion. Embolization is remain safe and effective procedure in carotid-cavernous fistulae treatment.

Key words:  CAROTID- CAVERNOUS FIRTULA. EMBOLIZATION
