• A patient had a common carotid artery—jugular vein fistula created 30 years previously for the treatment of mental retardation. During the years following this procedure, massive facial venous engorgement developed, and she had a stroke. Operative closure of the fistula successfully alleviated the facial swelling and venous engorgement.
