Carotid-cavernous fistulas are abnormal arteriovenous communications either directly between the internal carotid artery and the cavernous sinus or between the dural branches of the internal and external carotid arteries. These fistulas predominantly present with ocular manifestations and they are treated mainly by endovascular techniques in most cases. A detailed review of the literature allowed us to make a complete analysis of the information available on the topic. We describe a case of a direct carotid-cavernous fistula occluded by endovascular implantation of a covered stent, showing the persistence of results after three years.
