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...

Upper tracheal malignancies are rare, and long-term survival is even rarer, especially among the unresectable malignancies. A 66-year-old chronic smoker was diagnosed as a locally advanced, non-metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the upper trachea. Being unresectable, he was treated with six cycles of concurrent weekly cisplatin and three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy to a dose of 60 Gy in 30 fractions over 6 weeks. Follow-up imaging at 6 and 12 months revealed no disease. Our patient is presently 36 months post-treatment and is disease free without tracheal necrosis, fistula or radiation pneumonitis but developed hypothyroidism and is presently euthyroid...

Interkinetic nuclear migration (INM) is a cell polarity-based phenomenon in which progenitor cell nuclei migrate along the apico-basal axis of the pseudostratified epithelium in synchrony with the cell cycle. INM is suggested to be at least partially cytoskeleton-dependent and to regulate not only the proliferation/differentiation of stem/progenitor cells but also the localized/overall size and shape of organs/tissues. INM occurs in all three of the germ-layer derived epithelia, including the endoderm-derived gut...

Extended tracheo-bronchoplastic resection for lung cancer with carinal involvement ranks among technically demanding procedures. Despite certain progress in oncological therapy, this type of resection remains the only potentially curative treatment of NSCLC in this localization. However, given the severity of complications postoperative mortality is relatively high (711%). The main cause of death is tracheobronchopleural fistula complicated by thoracic empyema, bronchopneumonia and septic shock. If ARDS (acute respiratory distress syndrome) develops, the mortality rate rises up to 70%...

A term infant born cyanotic failed multiple intubation attempts and tracheostomy placement. After esophageal intubation resulted in the ability to ventilate, he was presumed to have tracheal agenesis and distal bronchoesophageal fistula. He was transferred to our institution where he was diagnosed with Floyd Type II tracheal agenesis. He underwent staged tracheal reconstruction. He was discharged to home at 4 months of age with a tracheostomy collar, cervical spit fistula, and gastrostomy tube. He represents the sole survivor-to-discharge of tracheal agenesis in the United States...

Tracheo-innominate fistula is a rare but recognised life-threatening complication most commonly associated with prolonged endotracheal intubation. We report the case of a 16-year-old boy who developed a tracheo-innominate fistula secondary to the prolonged intubation after a pool accident. After 16 days of hospitalisation, the patient died as a consequence of a massive haemorrhage into the tracheobronchial tree and asphyxia. This is a rare complication, and to our knowledge, no case of tracheo-innominate fistula or any other case series concerning this rare complication has been reported in Serbia recently...

Silicone tracheobronchial stents are being increasingly used in a large number of patients for the treatment of tracheal stenosis. One very rare complication due to tracheobronchial stenting is bronchoesophageal fistula (BEF), which has been associated with the use of metallic stents. We report intraoperative management of a patient undergoing repair of a BEF, following previous insertion of a silicone Y-stent that is soft in texture and has not been implicated for this complication till date. In addition, misalignment of this silicone tracheobronchial Y-stent resulted in a tracheal mucosal bulge proximal to the stent that vanished after its removal...

BACKGROUND: Airway obstruction or tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) near the tracheal carina requires placement of Y-shaped stents. Herein, we describe our multicenter experience with the placement of Dumon silicone Y-stents. We also conduct a systematic review for studies describing the deployment of airway silicone Y-stents. METHODS: This was a retrospective analysis of consecutive subjects who underwent placement of silicone Y-stents. The clinical details including the underlying diagnosis, indication for the placement of silicone Y-stents, success of stent placement, and follow-up are presented...

Concurrent chemoradiotherapy is an essential treatment strategy for inoperable locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Although supportive care has improved, unexpected complications due to the disease or treatment can occur. Tracheomediastinal fistulas are very rare but can be a serious problem. Herein, we report a case of severe chondronecrosis of the distal trachea with formation of a fistula into a metastatic lymphadenopathy in a patient with stage IIIB NSCLC. The patient received external beam radiotherapy with a total dose of 35 Gy in 14 fractions, which was approximately half of the conventional therapeutic radiotherapy dose, along with concurrent cisplatin based chemotherapy...

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...

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...

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...

Differentiated thyroid carcinoma is not highly malignant, and thus surgical resection is the most common treatment even if the carcinoma has invaded the trachea. Although some cases exist in which the carcinoma invades the trachea, using the tracheal window resection method allows complete resection of the carcinoma. Yet these patients must often control a large tracheocutaneous wound until reconstructive surgery is performed because such surgery occurs secondarily. Our hospital admitted three patients for which tracheally invasive, differentiated thyroid carcinoma was surgically resected...

We present a case of one-stage radical surgical treatment of a 24-year-old female patient with cicatricial granulating tracheal stenosis after tracheostomy complicated by esophageal-tracheal fistula and an extensive defect of the anterior wall of the trachea after numerous unsuccessful attempts to correct the narrowing of the trachea and eliminate the fistula by endoscopic and open surgical techniques. The patient underwent extended tracheal resection with end-to-end anastomosis with liquidation of the esophageal-tracheal fistula and elimination of the defect of the anterior wall of the trachea by cervical access...

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...

Intubating newborn infants can be exacting. We describe two cases of endotracheal intubations in infants born with tracheal malformations. A male infant aged 30 weeks required intubation at birth for respiratory distress. Repeated attempts at intubation failed to achieve an optimal endotracheal tube position as the tube could not advance beyond the vocal cords. Hence ventilation continued with suboptimal air entry in the lungs. Bronchoscopy and CT scan confirmed tracheal stenosis. Slide tracheoplasty was successfully executed on day 78 of life...

Tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) is an abnormal communication between the trachea and esophagus. Iatrogenic TEF can be due to endotracheal intubation, rigid bronchoscopy or tracheostomy. Tracheostomy tube cuff volumes and pressures require constant monitoring to avoid tracheal injury. Acquired TEF which occurs after prolonged intubation, usually develops after 15-200 days of mechanical ventilation. We report a case of a large TEF secondary to endotracheal intubation for organophosphorus poison-induced respiratory failure...

BACKGROUND: A postintubation tracheoesophageal fistula is a rare complication of a tracheotomy. Surgical repair is the only viable option for these patients, but the repair techniques presented in the literature vary. METHODS: We used a modified tracheal transaction approach to repair 5 cases of nonmalignant tracheoesophageal fistulas. The procedure was performed with a low cervical collar incision, and the trachea was transected directly. All the procedures were only carried out in the surgical field created by tracheostomy and paratracheal and esophageal dissection was no longer necessary...
