We present a 49-year-old woman who underwent Roux-en-Y gastric bypass with a recurrent gastrojejunal anastomotic leak requiring covered esophageal stent placement. She presented 1 month later with abdominal pain, leukocytosis, and hematemesis. A computed tomography scan demonstrated migration of the esophageal stent with aortic erosion concerning for AEF. She underwent emergent endovascular exclusion of an AEF to the descending thoracic aorta with subsequent esophageal resection and diversion and aortic endograft explant, resection, and homograft repair on postoperative day 6 allowing for staged removal of prosthetic material and maintenance of inline flow.
