INTRODUCTION: Use of a Fogarty catheter for emergent occlusion of tracheoesophageal fistulas (TEFs) has been described for use in unstable neonates. Our purpose was to describe a case series of elective Fogarty catheter occlusion of the TEF. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A formal operative laryngoscopy and rigid bronchoscopy were performed with Fogarty catheter placement into the fistula before surgical intervention. The balloon was inflated and gentle traction provided occlusion of the tract...

The Klippel-Feil syndrome is a congenital malformation of the skull flap involving complex cervical vertebrae and organs, characterized by a classic triad: short neck, limitation of movement of the head due to cervical spine fusion and low hairline in occipital region. It results from an error in the axial skeleton segmentation of the embryo; its incidence is estimated at 1/40,000-42,000 births and predominates in females. The aim of this paper is to describe the clinical picture of a patient with Klippel-Feil syndrome and multiple malformations, including tracheoesophageal fistula, bifid thumb and intracranial lipomas/angiolipomas,that have not been previously described in the syndrome, so it is considered an exceptional finding...

A 32-year-old woman presented with recurrent trachea-esophageal fistula. Although she had undergone open repair three times in her first year of life, a residual small leak was left. In the past 2 years she had experienced several lower respiratory tract infections and she had lost 5 kilograms in the past 2 months. Recent argon plasma coagulation cauterization and clipping of the fistula had failed, so an alternative technique with placement of an atrial septal occluder device was used to obliterate the fistula...

BACKGROUND: Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is an increasingly diagnosed disease, especially in the western world. Although its pathogenesis remains poorly understood, there is strong evidence that the eosinophilic inflammation in EoE is primarily triggered by immune dysregulation secondary to allergic sensitization to dietary or aero-allergens. Recent studies have reported a higher prevalence of EoE in children with congenital gastrointestinal malformations, i.e. esophageal atresia and/or tracheoesophageal fistula...

INTRODUCTION: Paediatric LTI is associated with significant morbid-mortality. Although historically first line treatment was surgical, conservative management is making headway. The purpose of this study was to analyze the management and surgical indications of LTI treated at our institution. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective study of patients with LTI treated between 2007 and 2014. RESULTS: Six out of seven patients, with a median age of 4 years (2-15), had blunt traumas and one had an open trauma...

Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) is commonly seen in immunocompromised patients, and tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) induced by IPA is rare and seldom reported. Management of these critically ill patients is challenging and often requires a multidisciplinary approach. The authors reported an adult suffering from aplastic anemia who developed TEF caused by IPA. The diagnosis was confirmed following bronchoscopy and histopathological examination. Antifungal and bronchoscopic intervention provided a cure without any recurrence as yet...

BACKGROUND: Long-gap esophageal atresia (LGEA) may have clinical and syndromic presentations different from those of esophageal atresia (EA) that affects shorter segments of the esophagus (non-LGEA). This may suggest unique underlying developmental mechanisms. OBJECTIVES: We sought to characterize clinical differences between LGEA and non-LGEA by carefully phenotyping a cohort of EA patients, and furthermore to assess molecular genetic findings in a subset of them...

OBJECTIVE: Aortoesophageal fistulas are rare and life-threatening conditions. Till now, an association between an aortoesophageal fistula and sarcoidoisis has not been reported yet. The aim of this report is to demonstrate a case of aortoesophageal fistula (AEF) secondary to sarcoidosis and its multistage interdisciplinary surgical therapy. CASE REPORT: A 66-year-old male was diagnosed with sarcoidosis in 2014. He has been treated with glucocorticoids since then and no severe health restrictions due the disease had occurred...

Posttraumatic esophagomediastinal fistula is an uncommon clinical entity that warrants surgical awareness due to its life-threatening potential. Its management, especially in previously operated field, is controversial and several endoscopic methods are being proposed as alternatives. Ours is the first report of endoscopic fulguration and fibrin injection in successful closure of such fistula. A 9-year-old female sustained complete tracheoesophageal transection from a gunshot wound to the neck and underwent immediate primary repair...

PURPOSE: Recurrent trachea-esophageal fistula (recTEF) is a frequent (5%-10%) complication of congenital TEF (conTEF) and esophageal atresia (EA) repair. In addition, postoperative acquired TEF (acqTEF) can occur in addition to or even in the absence of prior conTEF in the setting of esophageal anastomotic complications. Reliable repair often proves difficult by endoluminal or standard surgical techniques. We present the results of an approach that reliably identifies the TEF and facilitates airway closure as well as repair of associated tracheal and esophageal problems...

Terminal 7q deletion is rarely reported in the literature. Holoprosencephaly and sacral dysgenesis are found in association with this deletion, due to haploinsufficiency of SHH and HLBX9 genes respectively. We report on a 2-year-old boy with 7q35-36.3 deletion encompassing SHH identified by oligonucleotide array comparative genomic hybridization. In addition to other frequent features, the patient presented with esophageal atresia and tracheoeosophageal fistula diagnosed at birth. This case, together with two others previously described, one presenting with esophageal atresia, the other with congenital esophageal stenosis, confirms the possible association between congenital esophageal malformations and 7q terminal deletion including SHH...
