Abstract

The increasing number of patients requiring intensive care and airway support has led to a growing recognition that significant short- and long-term morbidity may be associated with the use of artificial airways; this is despite significant improvements in the materials used in laryngeal tubes, which aim to decrease the trauma associated with long-term intubation. We present the first case, to our knowledge, of huge, nontraumatic,esophageal perforation, widely communicating with the trachea, and which was treated successfully with double endoscopic stent placement
