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...

OBJECTIVE: A meta-analysis was performed for a comparison of outcomes between open repair (OR) and thoracoscopic repair (TR) for esophageal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula (EA with TEF). METHODS: Electronic databases, including PubMed, Cochrane Library, and Medline, were searched systematically for the literatures aimed mainly at comparing the therapeutic effects for EA with TEF administrated by OR and TR. Corresponding data sets were extracted and two reviewers independently assessed the methodological quality...

BACKGROUND: Children with congenital esophageal atresia (EA) and tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) have chronic respiratory symptoms including recurrent pneumonia, wheezing and persistent cough. The aim of this study is to describe the clinical findings of a large group of children with EA and TEF surgically corrected and the instrumental investigation to which they have undergone in order to better understand the patient's needs and harmonize the care. METHODS: A retrospective data collection was performed on 105 children with EA and TEF followed at Department of Pediatric Medicine of Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital (Rome, Italy) between 2010 and 2015...

Recurrent tracheoesophageal fistula (rTEF) is a complex complication after the repair of esophageal atresia (EA) and remains a challenge because of difficulties in preoperative management and the substantial rates of mortality and morbidity after reoperation. By reviewing a single institution's experience in the management of rTEF and assessing the outcome, we aimed to provide an optimal approach for managing rTEF and to evaluate growth and feeding problems after reoperations. The medical records of 35 patients with rTEF treated at a single institution from June 2012 to December 2015 were reviewed, and follow-up data were collected from all survivors...

Through a tracheostomy with a rigid esophagoscope in the esophagus, the authors simultaneously placed self-made magnetic twin stents in a critically ill patient with high tracheoesophageal fistula. The operation took 17 minutes. Oral nutrition was started immediately. The stents were checked and changed after the months 3, 7, and 14. At 18 months, a tracheal resection and esophageal reconstruction through a partial median sternotomy was completed successfully. The magnetic twin stent technique can temporize critically ill patients with an acquired nonmalignant tracheoesophageal fistula until they become operable...

BACKGROUND: Self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) implantation may rapidly improve the symptoms of malignant esophageal stenosis and tracheoesophageal fistulas (TEF). However, dysphagia often returns subsequently and repeated endoscopic intervention may be necessary. The aims of the study were to identify the risk factors of complications, and the frequency and efficacy of repeated endoscopic interventions; and to provide technical recommendations on appropriate stent selection. METHODS: We analyzed retrospectively the clinical data of 212 patients with locally advanced esophageal cancer who underwent SEMS implantation...

BACKGROUND: Tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) is a rare but life-threatening complication after esophagectomy. It has a high mortality rate and often leads to severe aspiration pneumonia. Various types of surgical repair procedures have been reported, but the optimal management of TEF is challenging and controversial. Treatment should be individualized to each patient. CASE PRESENTATION: A 66-year-old female underwent transthoracic esophagectomy with gastric tube reconstruction and an intrathoracic anastomosis for esophageal cancer...

BACKGROUND: We assessed the quality of life (QOL) of postoperative esophageal atresia (EA) with tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) cases, comparing open with thoracoscopic repair. METHODS: A retrospective review of consecutive EA/TEF repairs (2001-2014) was performed, excluding cases with birth weight less than 2000 g and severe cardiac/chromosomal anomalies. Of 37 cases, 13 had thoracoscopic repair (TR) and 24 had open repair (OR) according to the operating surgeon's preference...

BACKGROUND: Anastomotic stricture is the most common postoperative complication in infants undergoing repair of esophageal atresia with or without tracheoesophageal fistula (EA/TEF). Stricture indices (SIs) are used to predict infants at risk for stricture requiring dilation. We sought to determine the most accurate SI and optimal timing for predicting anastomotic dilation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective study of infants undergoing repair of EA/TEF between 2008 and 2013 was performed...

Since the middle of 2014, totally four tracheal silicon stent implantation were performed in our center. Of them, one case was recurrent tracheoesophageal fistula and the other three cases were tracheomalacia. Specifically, parents' psychological support, infants' nutrition support and airway care were key responses for a nurse before implantation. During the procedure of stent implantation, it was responsible for a nurse to closely monitor the infants and to support operator. After the implantation, airway care and prevention of intra-airway bacterial colonization were important to avoid complications such as hemoptysis or hemorrhage, airway obstruction, and stent displacement...

PURPOSE: This study investigated risk factors for developmental disorders after the repair of esophageal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula (EA/TEF). METHODS: The clinical charts of all infants with EA/TEF (gross type C) treated at our institution between 1993 and 2013 were analyzed. Patients with chromosomal aberrations were excluded. Forty-seven patients were divided into groups according to the presence (D) or absence (N) of developmental disorders. Patients were assessed with appropriate developmental examinations at age >3 years...

PURPOSE: Although thoracoscopic repair of esophageal atresia has become widespread, most studies are based on operations performed by expert surgeons. Therefore, the outcomes of operations performed by non-expert surgeons are not well known. The aim of this study was to compare outcomes based on operator skill level. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the demographics and outcomes of patients with Gross type C esophageal atresia, who underwent primary thoracoscopic repair at our hospital between January 2014 and August 2016...

The esophagus is a pivotal organ originating from anterior foregut that links the mouth and stomach. Moreover, its development involves precise regulation of multiple signal molecules and signal transduction pathways. After abnormal regulation of these molecules in the basal cells of the esophagus occurs, multiple diseases, including esophageal atresia with or without tracheoesophageal fistula, Barrett esophagus, gastroesophageal reflux, and eosinophilic esophagitis, will take place as a result. Furthermore, expression changes of signal molecules or signal pathways in basal cells and the microenvironment around basal cells both can initiate the switch of malignant transformation...

Anastomotic stricture is a common complication following repair of esophageal atresia (EA). Many factors are thought to contribute to stricture formation and a variety of management techniques have been developed. In this case report, we describe the treatment of a recurrent anastomotic stricture following repair of long-gap esophageal atresia. Porcine bladder extracellular matrix (ECM) was mounted on a stent and delivered endoscopically to the site of recurrent stricture. An appropriate positioning was confirmed using direct endoscopic visualization and intra-operative fluoroscopy...
