Steal syndrome causing limb ischemia is a rare but important complication of arteriovenous fistulas. When surgical or endovascular means to resolve ischemia are inconclusive, closure of the fistula becomes required. Our case presented with lower extremity ischemia resulting from an arteriovenous fistula graft. We present the successful endovascular closure of the lower extremity graft using the Amplatzer Vascular Plug.

Arteriovenöz fistül sonrası nadiren arteriyel çalma sendromuna bağlı iskemi görülmektedir. Cerrahi ve girişimsel prosedürler ile fistüllerdeki sorunlar çözülemezse, fistülün kapatılması gerekir. Bizim olgumuzda alt ektremitede AV fistül greftinin neden olduğu ayak iskemisi gelişmiştir. Cerrahi operasyon açısından yüksek riskli olan hastanın AV greft fistülü Amplatzer Vascular Plug ile girişimsel olarak kapatılmıştır. (NCI-2020-0070.R1)
