Transarterial embolization is one of the treatment choices for symptomatic hepatic arterioportal fistula that has low mortality and morbidity. Proper selection of the technique and embolic material is very important for the success of the procedure. We present a case with high-flow arterioportal fistula treated with transarterial embolization using detachable balloons.
