MedLine Citation:
PMID:  6962726     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Two atypical patients with spontaneous aortocaval fistulae with a successful outcome, are presented. Lack of physician awareness is considered an important contributor to diagnostic delay. A finding at cardiac catheterization is described. Review of the English literature shows that satisfactory results in the management of this condition can now be expected.
