A 47-year-old man was admitted with recurrent autolimited bleeding arising from a cervical tracheostoma made 2 years earlier during a total laryngectomy. Stomal recurrence of the past laryngeal cancer invading the neighboring innominate artery was diagnosed by angiographic computer tomography and bronchoscopic biopsies. The malignant tracheostoma-innominate fistula was approached through an extended transversal supraclavicular incision, bilateral hemiclaviculectomy, and manubriectomy. It was treated with an anterior mediastinal tracheostomy with omental major transposition, right latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flap for tissue coverage, and brachiocephalic artery rerouting with cadaveric homograft. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 14 after an uneventful postoperative course.
