Aortobronchial fistulas (ABF) are infrequent and require urgent diagnosis, often relying on a bundle of arguments. Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) is a possible therapeutic approach that needs close surveillance because its durability in such situations remains uncertain. We report a case of haemoptysis related to an aortobronchial fistula recurring 6 years after TEVAR, with an intraoperative finding of a midgraft hole. The patient underwent open repair with in situ aortic replacement with an aortic cryopreserved homograft.
