This article describes a deep femoral arteriovenous fistula (AVF) diagnosed over a decade after a small caliber gunshot injury to the groin. The fistula persisted following 2 previous attempts at endovascular exclusion and was referred to our institution for further care. We describe the successful exclusion of the AVF via a combination of endovascular techniques. Postoperatively, obliteration was noted to be durable for 4 additional years of follow-up.
