Özet

Arterioportal fistula (APF) is a rare disorder of the mesenteric vasculature Patients with arterioportal fistula may present with complications, including portal hypertension (gastrointestinal bleeding and ascites), heart failure or intestinal ischemia. Furthermore, membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN) subsequent to portosystemic shunts have been reported. In this paper, we report on a case of arterioportal fistula complicated with membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis and treated with an endovascular embolization procedure. A rapid improvement and complete resolution of ascites were observed following the treatment.
