Clinicoradiological review: bilateral ethmoidal artery
dural arteriovenous fistulas.
After the emergence of the cortical branch, caudally to the olfactory bulb, RCA issues the internal ethmoidal artery

Sieffert" (6,7) in 1928 ligated internal maxillary artery (6) via transantral approach, while "Good Year" (6,7) in 1937 tied anterior ethmoidal artery
for first time.
We describe a patient with a traumatic anterior ethmoidal artery
