Esophageal lung is a rare communicating bronchopulmonary foregut malformation in which the main bronchus arising from the trachea is absent. The affected lung is usually hypoplastic and aerated via an anomalous airway originating from the esophagus. Other anomalies such as esophageal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula or VACTERL (vertebral defects, anal atresia, cardiac defects, tracheoesophageal fistula, renal anomalies, and limb abnormalities) association can co-exist. The initial radiographic findings may be normal, but subsequent imaging usually shows progressive and recurrent lung collapse, probably because of recurrent aspiration through the anomalous airway and poor compliance of the affected lung during breathing...

We reported the first case of inoperative thymic adenocarcinoma successfully palliative treated by the double-stent procedure. In a patient who expressed stridor, computed tomography was done and necrotic mediastinal mass, which protrudes into a trachea, was demonstrated. Fiberoptic bronchoscopy showed tracheal infiltration and 70% stenosis; therefore, surgical resection was inapplicable. Recanalization with repeated argon plasma coagulation and debridement of necrotic mass was performed, followed by placement of the endotracheal stent, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy...

BACKGROUND:  Dilation is the standard of care for recurrent benign esophageal strictures (BES). Biodegradable stents may prolong the effect of dilation and reduce recurrences. Efficacy and safety of dilation and biodegradable stent placement early in the treatment algorithm of recurrent BES were compared. METHODS:  This multicenter, randomized study enrolled patients with BES treated with previous dilations to ≥ 16 mm. The primary end point was number of repeat endoscopic dilations for recurrent stricture within 3 and 6 months...

BACKGROUND: Treatment for tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF), a life-threatening complication after esophagectomy, is challenging. CASE PRESENTATION: A 75-year-old man with thoracic esophageal cancer underwent subtotal esophagectomy and gastric tube reconstruction through the post-mediastinal root after neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Owing to postoperative anastomotic leakage, an abscess formed at the anastomotic region. Sustained inflammation from the abscess caused refractory TEF between the esophagogastric anastomotic site and membrane of the trachea, and several conservative therapies for TEF failed...

Esophageal atresia (EA) Gross type A (long-gap without tracheoesophageal fistula) is a rare and a surgical challenging form of EA that constitutes ∼6% of the children born with EA. We present the seventh reported case with successful esophagoesophagostomy obtained by magnetic compression of a long-gap EA type A without thoracotomy.

AIM: The present study evaluates the long-term clinical and nutritional effect to endoscopic balloon dilatation (EBD) in pediatric esophageal stricture. METHODS: This was a 15-year retrospective study involving pediatric patients with esophageal stricture treated with EBD. Outcome parameters included the number of dilatations, procedural success rates, nutritional status, and complications. EBD was performed in patients with a dysphagia score greater than 2. The nutritional status was assessed by weight-for-age z-score...

BACKGROUND: Among voice restoration options following laryngectomy, tracheoesophageal puncture (TEP) appears to be the most common. Currently, there is no consensus that exists with regard to the timing of performing TEP and the decision to perform a primary or secondary TEP has mostly been based on physician preference and expert opinion rather than data. OBJECTIVE OF REVIEW: The objective of this study was to compare primary and secondary tracheoesophageal puncture (TEP) for voice rehabilitation in laryngectomy patients in terms of success and complication rates...

Tracheomalacia is characterized by weakness of the tracheal walls and supporting cartilage. It results in dynamic compression of the airway, where the cross-sectional area of the trachea is reduced by expiratory compression. Acquired tracheomalacia results from complications associated with the use of endotracheal or tracheostomy tubes. In this report, we present three cases of patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) successfully treated for tracheomalacia, including one case where the patient underwent surgery for combined tracheoesophageal fistula...

We present the case of a fistula between the trachea and the esophagogastric anastomosis in a 58-year-old male after esophagectomy. A Hem-o-Lok clip used at the time to ligate the azygos vein was discovered by esophagoscopy and bronchoscopy to be eroding into the both structures. A covered self-expandable Y-shaped metallic tracheobronchial stent was customized with a 3D printed airway model and inserted in place, with endoscopic injection of fibrin glue to the anastomotic site. 64 days after implantation, the stent was withdrawn with complete healing of the fistula...

BACKGROUND: Esophageal Atresia (EA) is defined as the congenital interruption of the continuity of the esophagus. Pediatric patients also have other congenital conditions, such as Tracheo-Esophageal Fistula (TEF). CASE REPORT: A 7-year-old male with TEF referred by a Pediatric Cardiologist, with the principal complaint of "severe and generalized tooth wearing". Considering that the patient was systemically stable, it was decided to perform the oral procedures under local anesthesia and rubber-dam isolation with an antimicrobial prophylaxis regimen...

Tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) is frequently congenital and requires surgical correction. TEF can also occur secondary to malignant esophageal tumors or benign diseases and these cases are managed by endoscopic means, such as closing the defect with metallic stents. Although esophageal injury can occur secondary to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), TEF secondary to chronic NSAIDs use hasn't been described in the literature. We report the case of a male patient with refractory migraine and chronic use of NSAIDs, with a history of esophageal stenosis presenting with acute-onset total dysphagia...

OBJECTIVES: Esophageal atresia (EA) is a rare malformation characterized of discontinuity of the esophagus, concurrent with or without a tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF). We report the validity and reliability of a condition-specific quality of life (QOL) tool for EA/TEF children, the age-adapted EA-QOL-questionnaires, when used in Sweden and Germany. METHODS: 124 families of children with EA/TEF participated in the study; 53 parents completed the EA-QOL-questionnaire for children aged 2-7 years; 62 children/71 parents the EA-QOL-questionnaire for children 8-17 years...

Patients with esophageal atresia (EA) and tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) often experience persistent respiratory tract disease. In experimental models, doxorubicin-induced developmental lung abnormalities may result from downregulation of branching morphogenesis factor fibroblast growth factor (Fgf10). This study investigated the temporospatial expression of Fgf10 pathway components and lung epithelial factors in an doxorubicin-induced EA-TEF model by quantitative polymerase chain reaction, immunohistochemistry, and immunoblotting...

Hasan Ersoz, Cem Nazli
OBJECTIVE: One of the techniques used in the treatment of tracheoesophageal fistula is applying the umbrella catheter, designed for closure of atrial septal defects, in this region. In the literature, we have encountered only 9 case reports in this regard. We shared a successfully closed tracheoesophageal fistula case with this technique. CASE: A tracheoesophageal fistula in a 47-year-old male patient was successfully closed with an atrial septal defect occluder device...

BACKGROUND Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) is one of the most commonly prescribed drugs to prevent organ transplant rejection in combination with calcineurin inhibitors and steroids. It has a different toxicity profile than tacrolimus and cyclosporine.  Gastrointestinal tract disturbances are the most common adverse effects. The use of MMF in pregnant women, however, holds great risk of miscarriage and fetal development defects such as external ear malformation, ocular anomalies, cleft lip and palate, and abnormality of distal limbs, heart, esophagus, and kidneys...

We describe three male neonates where infant feeding tube (IFT) passed 18-20 cm in the upper esophageal pouch. A blunt-tipped red rubber catheter confirmed esophageal atresia (EA) with long upper pouch in all three cases. Definitive management revealed EA with tracheoesophageal fistula and long overlapping upper esophageal pouch consistent with Kluth Type IIIb6 variant in two patients. Importance of using red rubber catheter at the pediatric practice instead of IFT is stressed.
