Endovascular interventional therapy is the first choice for the treatment of the traumatic arteriovenous fistula (AVF) because of its small trauma, fast recovery, exact effect, and low incidence of complications. However, surgery is still an important option for patients with contraindications to endovascular treatment or failure of endovascular treatment. We present the case of a 64-year-old male who was carried out with traumatic AVF and given endovascular treatment in other hospital 10 years ago. However, AVF did not disappear after surgery, and symptoms of venous hypertension such as lower limb swelling and ulcers appeared. We removed the stent and repaired the AVF with opening surgery. AVF did not recur after 1-year follow-up.
