A 25-year-old male patient underwent primary femoral artery repair following a gunshot injury. Postoperative examination showed a thrill and bruit in the right femoral region. Peripheral angiography performed under right femoral Doppler ultrasound guidance revealed an arteriovenous fistula between the right superficial femoral artery and femoral vein.

Control contrast injection showed near-total closure of the fistula and Doppler ultrasonography on the following day showed total closure.
