Figure 2: Acquired before embolization. (a) A catheter (thick arrow) is used to select the left hepatic artery and a microcatheter (slim arrow) is inserted into the proximal portion of the arterioportal fistula. When contrast in injected into the microcatheter, the length of the arterioportal fistula (curved arrow) is opacified. (b) The contrast then flows into a very large left portal vein (between arrowheads). From the large left portal vein, there is reversed flow in the large caliber main portal vein (slim arrow). Antegrade flow through the right portal vein (thick arrow) is not seen
