NEVES, Ana Augusta Gayoso et al. Endovascular treatment of thoracic aortic pseudoaneurysm with aortobronchial fistula in the late postoperative period of surgical correction of the aortic coarctation. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.1, pp.64-67. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492011000100012.

Aortobronchial fistula is an abnormal passage between the aorta and the bronchus, and even when recognized and treated promptly, it carries a high risk of fatality. It can develop after aortic operations, and it is usually the result of a pseudoaneurysm. Massive or intermittent hemoptysis is the main symptom. Conventional treatment of aortobronchial fistula is open surgery of the thoracic aorta with tracheobronchial reconstruction. Recently, endovascular repair has been proposed as an alternative. The authors report a case of successful endovascular treatment of thoracic aortic pseudoaneurysm with aortobronchial fistula, 22 years after surgical correction of the aortic coarctation.
