Abstract

Mycotic descending thoracic aneurysm with aortobronchial fistula is a rare condition which is associated with high mortality. Treatment in the era of minimally invasive procedure can often be controversial. The risk of graft infection should be considered as well as the unknown long term behavior of the endovascular stent. Here, we describe our initial experience of performing emergency thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair in an unstable patient presenting with haemoptysis.
