[en] Little has been reported regarding aortic–enteric fistula (AEF) as a complication of gynecologic cancers because of its rarity. However, since it is lethal if left untreated, medical practitioners involved with gynecologic diseases should be aware of this deadly condition. In our hospital, we encountered two cases of cervical cancer complicated by AEF. In both cases, contrast computed tomography (CT) revealed leakage of the contrast material from an artery into the small intestine, indicating AEF. Endovascular procedures with complete embolization of the affected arteries and femoro-femoral artery bypass (f-f bypass) were performed in the hybrid operation room. The activities of daily living improved dramatically for both patients, and they survived for 3 months before dying from cervical cancer. While embolization by endovascular methods and f-f bypass performed in a hybrid operation room is, therefore, an available option for treating AEF, literature is lacking and more research is required to improve long-term outcomes for this disease.
