Leak occurring after sleeve gastrectomy is a well-known complication, with an incidence of around 1.9%–2.4%. Varying from very early to very late in onset. One of the different techniques used for the treatment of leaks is esophageal stinting with variable rates of success and reported complications. Here, we report a case of massive bleeding from an aortoesophageal fistula occurring after stent insertion in an attempt of treating postsleeve gastrectomy leak along with a review of the literature.
