Abstract

Tracheo-innominate artery fistula (TIF) is a rare, life threatening and catastrophic complication, which may occur 7 to 14 days after surgery. The Incidence Rate of TIF is 0.1-1 and survival rate of patient is 14.3. Herein, we describe TIF in a patient 50 days post tracheotomy, based on our research, it appears that our case is the first finding with the latest onset of TIF after tracheotomy, which now has been improved by early diagnosis and surgical treatment.
