Abstract

We report the case of an 82-year-old man with a 12 month history of recurrent hemoptysis caused by an aortobronchial fistula. Twenty-five years earlier, the patient underwent placement of an aortic graft for aortic transection sustained in a motor vehicle accident. Chest radiography and bronchoscopy showed nonspecific abnormalities. We emphasize the role of CT angiography with 2D and 3D reconstructions for the diagnosis of and surgical planning for this rare but potentially lethal aortic postoperative complication.
