Abstract Aortoesophageal fistula is a rare manifestation of thoracic aortic surgery or esophageal disease. We describe a patient who underwent emergent endovascular repair of an aortoesophageal fistula due to a ruptured penetrating ulcer of the descending thoracic aorta and review the literature on this subject. (J Card Surg 2011; **:1-3).

Several publications have documented the technical feasibility and efficacy of stent grafting for aortic injuries. We report short- and mid-term results of thoracic endovascular repair with covered st...
To determine the efficacy of thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for degenerative aneurysm involving only the descending thoracic aorta (DTAA).
The UK prevalence of thoracic aneurysm is estimated at 10.4 per 100,000 person-years. Progressive and unpredictable enlargement can lead to rupture. Endovascular repair of thoracic aortic aneurysms in...
The purpose of this study is to retrospectively evaluate, with an 'all-comers' approach, the survival and outcome of patients following secondary surgical or interventional procedures after thoracic e...
To investigate the predictors of blood count changes and coagulation parameters alterations after thoracic aortic endovascular repair (TEVAR).
Evaluate the safety and effectiveness of endovascular repair with the LeMaitre TAArget thoracic stent graft as an alternative to open surgical repair.
The Zenith® TX2® Low Profile TAA Endovascular Graft study is a clinical trial approved by US FDA to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Zenith® TX2® Low Profile TAA Endovascul...
The purpose of this study is to assess the role of ascending, arch or descending thoracic aortic aneurysm exclusion using a novel endovascular prosthesis in high risk surgical patients.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Relay thoracic stent-graft system to treat thoracic aortic aneurysms. Efficacy will be evaluated by the device-rela...
This is an early feasibility study that investigates the outcome of selected patients with complex thoracoabdominal aortic lesions who are suitable for endovascular (within the vessel) rep...
The reconstruction of a continuous two-stranded DNA molecule without mismatch from a molecule which contained damaged regions. The major repair mechanisms are excision repair, in which defective regions in one strand are excised and resynthesized using the complementary base pairing information in the intact strand; photoreactivation repair, in which the lethal and mutagenic effects of ultraviolet light are eliminated; and post-replication repair, in which the primary lesions are not repaired, but the gaps in one daughter duplex are filled in by incorporation of portions of the other (undamaged) daughter duplex. Excision repair and post-replication repair are sometimes referred to as "dark repair" because they do not require light.
Endovascular procedure in which atheromatous plaque is excised by a cutting or rotating catheter. It differs from balloon and laser angioplasty procedures which enlarge vessels by dilation but frequently do not remove much plaque. If the plaque is removed by surgical excision under general anesthesia rather than by an endovascular procedure through a catheter, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY.
Surgery performed on the thoracic organs, most commonly the lungs and the heart.
