Abstract

The authors' experience indicates that MDCT was useful to classify esophageal injuries caused by foreign body ingestion which predicted the risk of AEF; endovascular stent grafting and VATS-guided mediastinal drainage would be a safe and minimally invasive method for treating patients with AEF and has the potential for improved treatment options for AEFs.
