Abstract

Devices originally designed for closure of cardiac septal defects have also been proposed for the treatment of acquired tracheo-oesophageal fistula (TOF). Choosing the right occluder device to match TOF size and shape is essential for a tailored treatment. We report the successful endoscopic closure of a post-radiotherapy TOF using preprocedural CT scan with holographic three-dimensional reconstruction and an Amplatzer atrial septal device. Complete TOF sealing was achieved with resolution of respiratory symptoms, and the patient was maintaining his ability to eat at 4-month follow-up.
