Abstract

 

Aorto-enteric fistula is a rare pathological entity of communication between the lumen of the aorta and the cavity of the digestive tract. In the non-treatment cases, mortality is almost 100%, and in the operative treatment cases, mortality remains high, up to 70%. The aim of our work was to describe one case of the patient with primary aorto-enteric fistula. In conclusion, aorto-enteric fistula should be suspected in cases of gastrointestinal bleeding and the presence of an aortic aneurysm. Early diagnosis of this pathological entity posed by an overview of computerized tomography and proper treatment are crucial..

 

Key words:

Aorto-enteric fistula, clinical symptoms and signs, diagnoses

 

 

Sažetak

 

Aortoenetrična fistula jeste redak patološki entitet komunikacije između lumena aorte i šupljine digestivnog trakta. U slučaju ne tretiranja smrtnost je skoro 100%, a u slučaju operativnog tretmana smrtnost je i dalje visoka, do 70%. Cilj našeg rada je bio da se opiše jedan slučaj pacijenta sa primarnom aortoenetričnom fistulom. Zaključeno je da treba uvek postaviti sumnju na aortoenteričnu fistulu u slučajevima gastrointestinalnog krvarenja i postojanje aneurizme aorte. Rana dijagnoza ovog patološkog entiteta postavljena pregledom kompjuterizovanom tomografijom i pravilni tretman su od presudnog značaja.
