The authors describe a patient who developed congestive heart failure one month after femoroperoneal bypass and adjuvant common ostium arteriovenous fistula procedure. The occlusion of the concomitant vein proximally to the arteriovenous fistula promptly resolved such a serious complication which, to our knowledge, has never been described previously.
