Tracheo-innominate artery fistula (TIF) is a surgical emergency with high mortality rates. Reported incidence is 0.1%-1.0% after tracheostomy with peak incidence 3 days to 6 weeks post procedure. TIF is usually fatal once it bleeds. For the successful management of TIF, treatment should be initiated immediately with the special considerations kept in mind. We describe two cases of TIF, and its clinical characteristics are reviewed in accordance with relevant literature.
