We report a triple coaxial catheter technique to facilitate the venous access to the superior ophthalmic vein during transvenous embolization of dural carotid-cavernous fistula (DCCF) via the transfacial venous route. Two patients with transvenous embolization of DCCFs by coils were treated with transfacial superior ophthalmic vein (SOV) approach by the triple coaxial catheter technique. The triple coaxial catheter system consisted of a 6F guiding catheter as the outer catheter and a 4F guiding catheter as the middle catheter and a microcatheter as the inner catheter to help navigation and manipulation. The DCCFs were completely obliterated in both cases. There were no complications associated with the procedure. The ophthalmic symptoms of the patients had totally resolved at two-month follow-up. The triple coaxial catheter technique can be used with the transfacial SOV approach in embolization of DCCF. This technique has two advantages over the double coaxial catheter technique because it offers additional length and support for the distal navigation of microcatheter into the SOV.
