    Abstract

    A 36-year-old female was treated for a perimedullary arteriovenous fistula (AVF) using intraoperative color Doppler sonography monitoring. Color Doppler sonography before interruption of the fistulous point clearly demonstrated an abnormal hyperechoic lesion. After interruption of the shunting point, the lesion had disappeared. Intraoperative angiography confirmed the disappearance of the perimedullary AVF. Intraoperative color Doppler sonography is a noninvasive, reliable, and cost-effective method for monitoring the effect of interruption on perimedullary AVF.
