We report the case of a 40-year-old woman with posttraumatic arteriovenous fistula of the right radialis indicis artery. The patient was admitted because a pulsatile lesion appeared on her hand after blunt trauma. Liquid sclerotherapy using 3% polidocanol in combination with distal protection using the rubber band technique was undertaken, which resulted in complete disappearance of the arteriovenous fistula. At 1 year after the endovascular therapy, the arteriovenous fistula had completely disappeared, and no further complications had occurred.
