Abstract

When a tracheal-innominate artery fistula is suspected, angiography is essential if the patient's condition is stable. An aggressive angiographic approach is needed to demonstrate the fistulous tract. Multiple injections in different degrees of obliquity and subtraction views should be obtained for early accurate diagnosis and for optimal demonstration of the pathologic anatomy.
