Abstract


Pelvic arteriovenous malformation is a rare vascular malformation. If it is not treated in time, it can cause serious complications. This paper reports a 73-year-old man who complained of discomfort in the lower abdomen with dysuria for 1 years. An arteriovenous malformation was found in the right internal iliac artery by pelvic CT examination. The patient was subsequently admitted to the hospital, and the whole arteriovenous malformation was embolized with a metal coil in the right internal iliac artery. There were no major complications after the operation, discharge from hospital with good recovery. Literature review shows that pelvic arteriovenous malformation is rare, but the form is varied. Interventional therapy is an effective and minimally invasive method for the treatment of pelvic arteriovenous malformation.
