Article Title: Esophagobronchial fistula closure using a novel endoscopic over-the-scope-clip
Abstract: We report on a patient who presented with a symptomatic esophagobronchial fistula arising from an esophageal diverticulum with recurrent pulmonary infections despite prophylactic antibiotics. She was not an optimal candidate for esophageal stenting, bronchial stenting, or surgery and had refused a gastrostomy tube placement. We performed a successful endoscopic fistula closure using a novel endoscopic over-the-scope-clip device providing an effective seal of the fistula with durable resolution of symptoms. © 2012 The Society of Thoracic Surgeons.
