Abstract

The treatment of benign broncho-oesophageal fistula is usually surgical but sometimes other methods of treatment are preferred. The case history is described of an adult in poor general condition in which an endoscopic approach combined with the use of fibrin glue on the bronchial side and metallic clips on the oesophageal side was used to close the fistula.
