Femoral arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is an abnormal communication between femoral artery and vein, which is frequently caused by an iatrogenic or traumatic event. Surgery and endovascular approach with coil and stent graft placement are the most frequent choices of treatment. Herein, we present 2 cases of iatrogenic superficial femoral AVF, which were treated with percutaneous balloon-assisted N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate glue (N-BCA). Both fistulae had a short tract, and 1 of the patients had previously undergone a failed coil embolization. The occlusions with N-BCA were achieved immediately, and both fistulae remained obliterated at 1 and 12 months of follow-up.
