This report describes repair of an aortoesophageal fistula caused by a previously placed thoracic aortic graft. The diagnosis was made by esophagoscopy. The repair consisted of femoral-to-femoral cardiopulmonary bypass, excision of the old graft, placement of a new graft, esophagectomy, cervical esophagostomy, gastrostomy, and later reconstruction by cervical esophagogastrostomy.
