The authors describe their experience in the treatment of peripheral congenital A-V fistulas in 64 cases. Different surgical procedures (skeletation, 'en bloc resection') have been performed in 19 patients, embolization in 15 patients. The need for a more radical and definitive procedure has induced the authors, in a recent series of 6 patients, to associate embolization and surgical therapy in the same operative session. The results are encouraging. The technique is reported.
