Aortocaval fistula (ACF) is a rare complication that presents with signs of right heart failure. Renal and hepatic impairments which increase surgical risk may be associated with this condition. The decision of timing for intervention is important for reducing mortality. In this case, we aim to share our experience of an urgent surgical approach to an ACF.

Key words: Arteriovenous fistula; abdominal aorta; inferior vena cava; aortocaval fistula

Aortokaval fistül (AKF) sağ kalp yetmezliği belirtileri ile ortaya çıkabilen nadir bir komplikasyondur. Cerrahi riski arttıran hepatik ve renal fonksiyonlardaki bozulmalar bu durumla birlikte bulunabilir. Mortaliteyi engellemede müdahale zamanlamasına karar vermek önem kazanmaktadır. Bu vakada, bir AKF olgusunda acil cerrahi yaklaşım deneyimimizi paylaşmayı amaçladık.

Anahtar kelimeler: Arteriyovenöz fistül; abdominal aorta; vena kava inferior; aortokaval fistül
