Tracheoinnominate artery fistula is a rare complication occurring in less than 1% of tracheostomies. It presents as a surgical emergency because of the massive amount of bleeding associated with it. Management of tracheoinnominate artery fistula requires expertise in identifying the fistula site and also providing emergency fluid management in the form of blood and its substitutes. We present a successful management of such a case.
