We report a patient with a giant tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) planned for reconstructive surgery. Because mechanical ventilation in any form was technically impossible, we successfully used veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VV-ECMO) without the need for mechanical ventilation.

Background: Percutaneous transesophageal gastro-tubing (PTEG) is a minimally invasive technique to access the gut via an esophagostomy. However, this procedure is not well known and the literature available is still fairly limited. This observational study was conducted to evaluate our experience using this method as an alternative long-term tube feeding procedure when gastrostomy is not suitable. Methods: A total of 15 patients (10 males and 5 females) who underwent PTEG at our institution from 2012 to 2016 were observed and analyzed in this study...

OBJECTIVE: To determine nationwide prevalence and healthcare utilization in children with anorectal malformations and associated anomalies over a 6-year period. STUDY DESIGN: We used the Kids' Inpatient Database for the years 2006, 2009, and 2012 for data collection. International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision codes were used to identify patients with anorectal malformations and associated anomalies. RESULTS: A total of 2396 children <2 years of age with anorectal malformations were identified using weighted analysis; 54...

BACKGROUND: Tracheoesophageal puncture represents the 'gold standard' for voice restoration following laryngectomy. Tracheoesophageal puncture can be undertaken primarily during laryngectomy or in a separate secondary procedure. There is no current consensus on which approach is superior. The current evidence comparing primary and secondary tracheoesophageal puncture was assessed. METHODS: A systematic review and meta-analysis of articles comparing outcomes for primary and secondary tracheoesophageal puncture after laryngectomy were conducted...

BACKGROUND: Gastrointestinal defects are a phenotypically and etiologically diverse group of malformations. Despite their combined prevalence and clinical impact, little is known about the epidemiology of these birth defects. Therefore, the objective of the 2017 National Birth Defects Prevention Network (NBDPN) data brief was to better describe the occurrence of gastrointestinal defects. METHODS: As part of the 2017 NBDPN annual report, 28 state programs provided additional data on gastrointestinal defects for the period 2010-2014...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Examine rates of readmission after total laryngectomy and determine primary etiologies, timing, and risk factors for unplanned readmission. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. METHODS: The Nationwide Readmissions Database was queried for patients who underwent total laryngectomy between January 2013 and November 2013. Patient-, procedure-, admission-, and institution-level characteristics were compared for patients with and without unplanned 30-day readmission...

We report a 72-year-old male with past medical history of stage IV squamous lung cancer treated with radiation therapy and chemotherapy with gemcitabine/carboplatin. One year later, he presented with hemoptysis treated with another session of palliative radiotherapy. Two weeks later, patient developed aspiration pneumonia and further workup showed trachea-esophageal fistula documented by barium swallow. This case shows a rare complication of chemotherapy and radiation therapy on the setting of primary lung cancer...

RATIONALE: Congenital esophageal atresia (EA) and tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) ininfants have been treated well with surgery. Approximately 10% of children displayed recurrent fistula. In the present case, we reported recurrent TEF in an adolescent as a complication of EA/TEF in infancy. PATIENT CONCERNS: An infant was diagnosed with gross type C congenital EA and TEF and subsequentlyunderwent repair in early infancy, with division of the TEF and primary esophageal anastomosis...

INTRODUCTION: Transanastomatic feeding tube (TAT) use in the repair of tracheoesophageal fistulas (TEF) with or without esophageal atresia (EA) and EA with or without TEF allows for earlier enteral feedings, however, may predispose to esophageal stricture. METHODS: We review our institutional experience with esophageal atresia repair over a 15-year period from 2000 to 2015 and report on our observed complication rate with emphasis on the surgical approach and use of TATs...

PURPOSE: This study evaluates the results of thoracoscopic management of complex, non-type C, EA and TEF in infants. METHODS: From March 2000 to February 2017, 23 patients were treated for Type A N=13, Type B N=4, and Type E N=6. Patients diagnosed with EA had G-tube feeds for a period of 4-9weeks. All procedures were performed thoracoscopically. EA gaps were between 4 and 7 1/2 vertebral bodies. RESULTS: All surgeries were completed thoracoscopically...

The aim of this study was to present our experiences with, as well as the factors that affect, the treatment and outcome of patients with neonatal gastrointestinal perforations (GIPs). Thirty-eight newborn cases that were operated on for GIP in our hospital's tertiary newborn intensive care unit between January 2005 and December 2015 were retrospectively evaluated. The patients were divided into the two following groups: group 1, perforations related to necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), and group 2, non-NEC perforations...

BACKGROUND: Fused lower limbs combined with severe urogenital malformation, also known as sirenomelia, is a rare congenital clinical syndrome. The etiology is unknown, and the outcome for the affected fetus is rather uncertain. CASE REPORT: Mrs RB, a Kuwaiti woman primigravida, married to a non-consanguineous husband, had uneventful antenatal care in a private health service, until she was admitted to the Maternity Hospital, Kuwait, at 31 weeks of gestation with a 3-hour history of ruptured membranes...

REVIEW
Maria Francesca Patria, Stefano Ghislanzoni, Francesco Macchini, Mara Lelii, Alessandro Mori, Ernesto Leva, Nicola Principi, Susanna Esposito
Congenital esophageal atresia with or without tracheoesophageal fistula (CEA ± TEF) is a relatively common malformation that occurs in 1 of 2500-4500 live births. Despite the refinement of surgical techniques, a considerable proportion of children experience short- and long-term respiratory complications, which can significantly affect their health through adulthood. This review focuses on the underlying mechanisms and clinical presentation of respiratory morbidity in children with repaired CEA ± TEF. The reasons for the short-term pulmonary impairments are multifactorial and related to the surgical complications, such as anastomotic leaks, stenosis, and recurrence of fistula...
