Abstract

Caval aneurysms are very rare but potentially lethal. Discussion about the need for treatment rises on individual basis. Based on the underlying etiology, a well-considered treatment plan should be made. Possible complications for invasive treatment and conservative management should be carefully weighed against each other. We present a patient with a caval aneurysm due to an arteriovenous fistula which we treated with endovascular embolization. Six months after treatment the patient is asymptomatic and the aneurysm size is decreased.
