Abstract

Tracheoinnominate fistula is a rare but lethal condition that requires emergent surgical intervention to prevent ensuing exsanguinating hemorrhage. In clinical situations where the risk of open surgery is prohibitively high, endovascular repair may provide a life-saving alternative to control hemorrhage and serve as a temporizing or definitive solution based on a given clinical scenario. The authors report successful endovascular repair of the bleeding tracheoinnominate fistula with a stent in a liver transplant patient with high comorbidities and review the current literature.
