Abstract

Acute development of superior vena cava syndrome is unusual. This report describes a patient who suddenly presented with a superior vena cava obstruction after esophageal and tracheal stenting for a malignant tracheoesophageal fistula. Stenting of the superior vena cava rapidly alleviated the obstruction and resulted in resolution of symptoms.
