Aortoesophageal fistula as a late complication of type B aortic dissection.

PMID:  21489929     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
We present a patient with aortoesophageal fistula that occurred years after an acute type B aortic dissection that was treated medically. This patient developed aneurysmal dilatation of the chronically dissected aorta, which finally eroded into the esophagus. Endovascular management with the placement of a stent graft was performed, but the patient ultimately died of multiorgan failure and possible myocardial infarction.
