Abstract

Secondary stent graft infection is a life-threatening complication after thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). There is no consensus on optimal treatment strategy, but combined antibiotic and surgical treatment is advocated. Two years after his TEVAR procedure, a 70-year-old patient was admitted to the hospital with a secondary periaortic abscess. At first, the abscess was managed with clindamycin and transesophageal drainage. The abscess would not dissipate, and an infected iatrogenic aortoesophageal fistula was formed, which was surgically treated with esophageal resection, gastric tube reconstruction, and omental flap coverage.
