ABSTRACT
Aortobronchial fistula (ABF) is a rare and late complication of cardiac surgery. If untreated, mortality rate is approximately 100% secondary to exsanguinations haemoptysis. Early diagnosis and treatment are essential for successful management. Open surgical repair is associated with high morbidity and mortality rate, ranging from 25% to 41%. Endovascular treatments of ABF is a less invasive treatment modality and have become an important alternative to open surgical intervention in aortic pathologies. We present a case of ABF that successfully is managed by endovascular approach.
