Fatal bronchovascular fistula after lobectomy visualized through postmortem computed tomography angiography: A case report


Hinderberger, Philipp; Fliss, Barbara; Thali, Michael J; Schweitzer, Wolf (2017). Fatal bronchovascular fistula after lobectomy visualized through postmortem computed tomography angiography: A case report. Forensic Science, Medicine, and Pathology, 13(2):234-239.

Abstract

False aneurysm of the pulmonary artery complicated by bronchovascular fistula formation represents a rare life threating condition. We report a case of fatal hemoptysis after formation of a bronchial fistula in the late postoperative period after sleeve lobectomy. Cause of death was determined by external postmortem examination, post mortem computed tomography (PMCT) and angiography (PMCTA) without conventional autopsy.
