Posttraumatic intrasplenic arteriovenous fistula is a very rare complication of blunt traumatic injury. Computed tomography angiography is a useful and noninvasive technique to follow up nonsurgically managed patients with posttraumatic splenic injury and has a vital role detecting delayed complications such as arteriovenous fistula. Endovascular treatment of a vascular complication prevents risk of surgery and splenectomy complications. We present a case of posttraumatic arteriovenous fistula in 39-year-old male which was diagnosed by computed tomography angiography and successfully treated by transcatheter coil embolization.

Key words: Angiography, splenic AVF, transcatheter embolization, blunt trauma
