Tracheoesophageal fistula from nonpenetrating trauma.

Abstract

A patient with a tracheoesophageal fistula from blunt chest trauma is presented and the literature is reviewed. A common pathophysiologic factor is the involvement of a young male in a deceleration injury. Early surgical intervention with division of the fistula and repair of the tracheal and esophageal defects is recommended.
