Aortoesophageal fis­tu­la (AEF) is a rel­a­tive­ly ­rare but ­life-threat­en­ing ­cause of ­upper gas­troin­tes­ti­nal bleed­ing. There ­have ­been ­only a few sur­vi­vors pre­vi­ous­ly report­ed. There are con­tro­ver­sies par­tic­u­lar­ly regard­ing the treat­ment of the esoph­a­gus and post­op­er­a­tive infec­tions. We ­report a ­case of an eld­er­ly man ­with an aor­toe­soph­a­geal fis­tu­la result­ing ­from a tho­rac­ic aor­tic aneu­rysm. We man­aged the replace­ment of the aor­ta ­using a pros­thet­ic ­graft, and an omen­top­exy for the fis­tu­la of the esoph­a­gus. For the treat­ment of leak­age of the esoph­a­geal fis­tu­la, we suc­cess­ful­ly ­used a cov­ered ­stent. This is the ­first ­report of the man­age­ment of AEF ­using a cov­ered ­stent.
