Design of illustrations to explain the surgery procedures of catheterization of a carotid fistula. The fistula is treated with inserting a catheter through the superior ophthalmic vein, which is moved forward to place in the brain where the fistula is situated. An incision is made medial/cranial of the eye, the superior ophthalmic vein is exposed and prepared. A catheter is inserted in the vein and moved forward to the fistula in the cavernous sinus.
In an additional illustration anatomy of the eye with surrounding veins are shown and two possible approaches, superior ophthalmic vein (SOV) and inferior ophthalmic vein (IOV) are show.
