Abstract: A rare case of arteriovenous fistula of the right mammary artery following penetrating chest wound is reported. The patient was treated one week later because of right-sided hemothorax associated with diastolic machinary murmur. Selective digital subtraction angiography showed a fistulous communication connecting the right internal mammary vessels. The fistula was cured through a right anterolateral thoracotomy. The surgical literature is reviewed.

“…Transection (38.6%) was the most common injury pattern, followed by contrast extravasation (35.1%) and aneurysm/pseudoaneurysm (17.5%). Arteriovenous stulas (AVFs) with various adjacent veins were not common but were reported in 5 cases (8.8%) (3,6,19,20,30).…”

“…Before multidetector CT was prevalent, angiography was arranged for patients with a high suspicion of mediastinal vessel injury. In our review, eight patients underwent angiography without CT, all of whom were from studies before 2000 (3,6,15,17,19,30,34,37). After 2000, although diagnosis and treatment could be performed simultaneously by angiography, most physicians chose contrast-enhanced chest CT as the diagnostic tool because of its easy accessibility and ability to provide more comprehensive information.…”

“…A thorough clinical evaluation, including chest X-ray study, should be done in all patients with penetrating injuries to the neck. Internal mammary artery injuries have been reported after penetrating and blunt trauma presenting with HTX, traumatic arteriovenous fistula pseudo-aneurysm, pericardial tamponade, and wide mediastinum (1)(2)(3)(4)(5)(6)(7)(8)(9)(10)(11)(12). Iatrogenic IMA trauma has been reported after tube-thoracostomy, thoracotomy, and other percutaneous transthoracic interventions, including subclavian vein catheterization (7,13).…”
