  • Endovascular stenting of an aortopulmonary fistula presenting with hemoptysis - A case report JOURNAL OF CARDIOVASCULAR SURGERY Campagna, A. C., Wehner, J. H., Kirsch, C. M., Semba, C. P., Kagawa, F. T., Jensen, W. A., Dake, M. D. 1996; 37 (6): 643-646


    We present a 45 year old man with massive hemoptysis due to an aortopulmonary fistula. Our patient had a history of a previous patent ductus arteriosus repair which was complicated by a previous aortopulmonary fistula. Computed tomography of the chest and aortography made the diagnosis of a recurrent aortopulmonary fistula. Because of the history of previous surgical aortic procedures, repair of the fistula was completed through a retroperitoneal aortotomy with intravascular insertion of an expandable stainless steel stent covered by a polyester graft. The patient has had no hemoptysis or computed tomographic evidence of fistula recurrence thirty eight months after the procedure.
