Esophageal tracheal fistula is a pathological communication between the esophagus and the trachea and/or bronchus. It is caused by the progression of malignant tumors such as esophageal cancer and lung cancer, as well as radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Once the esophageal tracheal fistula is diagnosed, it needs immediate treatment to block the fistula as soon as possible, relieve symptoms and improve the quality of life of the person. Digestive endoscopic minimally invasive interventional techniques, represented by esophageal stents, are an important means of treating esophageal fistula. In this study, the esophageal stent type selection, placement method and efficacy in the treatment of esophageal tracheal fistula, and the application of other digestive endoscopy techniques is summarized.
