BACKGROUND: Intraoperative hypercapnia and acidosis have been associated with thoracoscopic repair of both congenital diaphragmatic hernia and esophageal atresia/tracheoesophageal fistula. AIM: The aim of the present study was to investigate whether thoracoscopic repair of congenital diaphragmatic hernia or esophageal atresia/tracheoesophageal fistula was associated with acidosis and hypercapnia in a large group of neonates, and to analyze the effects of acidosis and hypercapnia on early postoperative outcomes...

Lisa Mahoney, Rachel Rosen
Feeding difficulties such as dysphagia, coughing, choking, or vomiting during meals, slow eating, oral aversion, food refusal, and stressful mealtimes are common in children with repaired esophageal atresia (EA) and the reasons for this are often multifactorial. The aim of this review is to describe the possible underlying mechanisms contributing to feeding difficulties in patients with EA and approaches to management. Underlying mechanisms for these feeding difficulties include esophageal dysphagia, oropharyngeal dysphagia and aspiration, and aversions related to prolonged gastrostomy tube feeding...

VATER association is a nonrandom occurrence of congenital malformations: vertebral defects, anal atresia, tracheoesophageal fistula, renal defects, and radial bone anomalies. We report the case of a 19-year-old man with a childhood diagnosis of VATER association, who presented to the motion sickness clinic with severe seasickness. We discuss the clinical and laboratory diagnosis of vestibular pathophysiology, which was confirmed by MRI of lateral semicircular canal and vestibule dysplasia. We suggest the possibility of vestibular involvement as part of the developmental field defect associated with VATER syndrome, which hitherto has rarely been reported...

BACKGROUND: The acronym VATER/VACTERL refers to the rare nonrandom association of the following component features (CF): vertebral defects (V), anorectal malformations (A), cardiac defects (C), tracheoesophageal fistula with or without esophageal atresia, renal malformations (R), and limb defects (L). Patients presenting with at least three CFs are diagnosed as having VATER/VACTERL association while patients presenting with only two CFs are diagnosed as having VATER/VACTERL-like phenotypes...

OBJECTIVES: Adult-based guidelines support the use of the pull (extraction) endoscopic technique in managing esophageal food bolus impactions (FBIs) but allow the consideration of the push (advancement) technique with caution based on available published literature. The North American Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition guidelines mention the use of gentle endoscopic pushing for disimpaction but elaborate that this technique has not been studied in children...

PURPOSE: Perioperative management of infants with esophageal atresia and tracheoesophageal fistula (EA/TEF) is frequently based on surgeon experience and dogma rather than evidence-based guidelines. This study examines whether commonly perceived important aspects of practice affect outcome in a contemporary multi-institutional cohort of patients undergoing primary repair for the most common type of esophageal atresia anomaly, proximal EA with distal TEF. METHODS: The Midwest Pediatric Surgery Consortium conducted a multicenter, retrospective study examining selected outcomes on infants diagnosed with proximal EA with distal TEF who underwent primary repair over a 5-year period (2009-2014), with a minimum 1-year follow up, across 11 centers...

BACKGROUND: Esophageal stenosis (ES) is characterized by dysphagia, failure to thrive, and long-term disability. It requires repeated management because it is refractory. Traditionally, these procedures are performed under general anesthesia with airway intubation. PURPOSE: This study investigated the safety and efficacy of the management of interventional flexible endoscopy (IFE) performed with a novel noninvasive ventilation (NIV) support. METHODS: Use of a short-length flexible endoscope with NIV of pharyngeal oxygen, nose closure, and abdominal compression during IFE was investigated...

OBJECTIVE: Recurrent tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) can be a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. Traditional treatment is thoracotomy, which carries significant morbidity and technical difficulty especially in a previously operated field. Recently, endoscopic techniques have been advocated as a primary approach for treatment of recurrent TEF prior to open repair. This case report describes the endoscopic technique used to address a recurrent TEF. The existing literature of all reported endoscopic cauterization methods is reviewed...

A 57-year-old woman with myasthenia gravis (MG), who had experienced a myasthenic crisis, complained of coughing while drinking. At first, this appeared to be a sequela of the myasthenic crisis. However, after further investigation, the problem was identified as a tracheoesophageal fistula, a complication of tracheostomy. Here, we describe this special case in the hope that we can improve diagnostic accuracy by providing a reminder for other physicians to consider the differences between MG and tracheoesophageal fistula...

Previously, the main treatment options for tracheoesophageal fistula included surgery and conservative treatment. Herein, we report a child suffering from severe tracheoesophageal fistula due to button battery ingestion. The child relapsed soon after a repair surgery. Then, he was endotracheally implanted with a fully-covered metallic stent combined with a jejunal tube feeding. He recovered soon and the stent was removed five months later. The fistula was healed with no relapse during a 25-month follow-up. Therefore, endotracheal implantation of fully-covered metallic stent is an alternative treatment for tracheoesophageal fistula due to button battery ingestion, especially in cases with severe respiratory disorders...

OBJECTIVES: Recurrent congenital tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) is well documented in infancy but may also present later in life. This study reviews our experience with the clinical presentation, diagnosis and management of 5 recurrent and 2 primary congenital tracheoesophageal fistulas (TEF) in adult patients. There are no literature series of late recurrence of TEF (repaired in childhood and recurring in adulthood) and relatively few reported cases of initial adult presentation of TEF...

PURPOSE: The optimal surgical management of extremely (ELBW) and very low-birth-weight (VLBW) neonates with esophageal atresia and distal tracheoesophageal fistula (EA/TEF) (Gross type C) is still debated. The aim of this study was to evaluate the surgical outcome of primary repair in these patients and compare it to ≥1500g neonates. METHODS: Medical records of neonates with repaired EA from 2002 to 2016 were reviewed. RESULTS: 4 ELBW, 7 VLBW, and 24 ≥1500g infants had type C EA/TEF and underwent primary repair...

BACKGROUND: Minimal access surgery (MAS) has gained popularity in infants less than 5kg, however, significant challenges still arise in very low weight infants. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective chart review was performed to identify all infants weighing less than 3kg who underwent an advanced MAS or equivalent open procedure from 2009 to 2016. Advanced case types included Nissen fundoplication, duodenal atresia repair, Ladd procedure, congenital diaphragmatic hernia repair, esophageal atresia/tracheoesophageal fistula repair, diaphragmatic plication, and pyloric atresia repair...

OBJECTIVE: To perform a multicenter review of outcomes in patients with H-type tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) in order to better understand the incidence and causes of post-operative complications. BACKGROUND: H-type TEF without esophageal atresia (EA) is a rare anomaly with a fundamentally different management algorithm than the more common types of EA/TEF. Outcomes after surgical treatment of H-type TEF are largely unknown, but many authoritative textbooks describe a high incidence of respiratory complications...

AIM: To evaluate complications and long-term results of delayed esophagoesophagostomy in children with esophageal atresia (EA). MATERIAL AND METHODS: 165 EA children were operated at the Filatov Municipal Children's Hospital #13 for the period 2006-2016. Primary esophageal anastomosis was performed in 136 (82.4%) children with tracheoesophageal fistula. In 5 (3%) neonates with non-fistulous EA esophago- and gastrostomy were made for further coloesophagoplasty. Other 24 (14...

Esophageal atresia (EA) is an uncommon congenital anomaly which is often associated with a tracheoesophageal fistula. An isolated EA is a rarer anomaly and its diagnosis has implications for the ongoing treatment and outcome of the infant. For the first time, we report a case of a premature newborn with a pure EA and a tracheal diverticulum, containing both respiratory and esophageal mucosa. We have termed this an aborted trachea-esophageal fistula. Recognition of these very rare variations of foregut anomalies may contribute to our understanding of their pathogenesis...

Tracheo-esophageal fistula is a life-threatening condition for fatal pulmonary complications. Surgery is the treatment of choice. Unfortunately, the most of patients are unfit for surgery and in these cases there is no a standardized management. Herein, we reported a clinical case of a 75-year-old-woman with a tracheoesophageal fistula related to tracheostomy. The fistula was localized 3.5 cm below the vocal folds and extended 3 cm distally. The patient's poor clinical condition contraindicated surgery while the characteristics of fistula prevented any successfully endoscopic repair with standard methods as application of fibrin glue, clipping, or stenting...

Gilles Duvoisin, Usha Krishnan
Oesophageal atresia and tracheoesophageal fistula (OA-TOF) are a multifaceted condition which affects patients throughout their lives. Even though it is one of the most common gastrointestinal malformations, most of the current studies focus on gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, anastomotic strictures, and feeding difficulties. However, there is increasing evidence that a proportion of patients with OA-TOF also have abnormal gastric function. This review aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of studies of gastric function in patients with OA-TOF...
