BERGOEING R, Michel et al. Endovascular treatment of aorto-esophageal fistula due to esophageal cancer: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2013, vol.141, n.2, pp.264-267. ISSN 0034-9887.

Background: Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma can spread locally to neighboring organs in the mediastinum. When it invades the aorta, the patient may develop an aorto esophageal fistula (AEF), complication that carries a high mortality rate. We report a 62-year-old male with stage IV esophageal carcinoma who, after chemo radiation treatment, developed an AEF. He was successfully treated with the use of an aortic endograft. The patient died 13 months later due to progression of his cancer, without evidence of sepsis or new bleeding episodes.
