Core Tip Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for thoracic aortic aneurysms is an accepted alternative to open surgery, especially in patients with significant comorbidities. The procedure itself has a low risk of complications and fistulas to surrounding organs are rarely reported. Aortoesophageal fistula post-TEVAR is a very rare entity; however, it is a devastating and usually fatal condition. Treatment options are very restricted, as these patients are often not candidates for complex surgery. We consider the placement of a covered self-expanding esophageal stent to be useful in the management of secondary aortoesophageal fistula after TEVAR to prevent re-bleeding in the fragile patient.
