ABSTRACT
A patient with a potentially fatal condition as a result of esophago-pneumo-broncho fistula was successfully treated with the insertion of a self-expanded covered metallic stent. Severe regurgitation resulted in the removal of the stent 3 months after insertion. Stricture after removal of the stent required pneumatic balloon dilation. The use of a self-expanded covered metallic stent is effective for the treatment of spontaneous esophageal rupture; however, early removal of the stent is recommended.

    Esophageal cancer is often diagnosed at an advanced stage, with many patients found to have locoregional or metastatic disease at time of diagnosis. Because of this, cure may be unlikely, leading treatment efforts to focus more on symptom palliation and improving patient quality of life. The...
