In end stage renal disease patients on dialysis, the use of catheter as a vascular access is associated with a significant risk of sepsis compared to an arterio-venous fistula. Our case emphasizes the importance of having high index of suspicion for unusual complications in patients presenting with possible catheter-related blood stream infection and early use of complementary tools such as trans-oesophageal echocardiography whenever applicable.

We present a patient with HIV/AIDS with multiple tracheo-oesophageal fistulas probably due to previous tuberculosis. An Ivor-Lewis procedure was successfully undertaken following stringent pre-operative preparation. Surgical repair of persistent post-tuberculous tracheo-oesophageal fistulas may be safely undertaken in selected patients with HIV/ AIDS.

A 21-year-old Saudi man presented with a history of dysphagia and choking. CT scan of the chest showed clear evidence of chronic recurrent aspiration pneumonia in the left lung. It also showed a fistula connecting the left main bronchus to the oesophagus. Endoscopy showed clear opening on the oesophageal side. Bronchoscopy also confirmed the presence of a broncho-oesophageal fistula on the left bronchial side with the presence of secretions on swallowing. Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) was done and sent for mycobacterial tuberculosis culture...

INTRODUCTION: Certain broncho-oesophageal fistulae require surgical repair. Herein, we describe an innovative surgical technique combining intercostal flap and endobronchial stenting. CASE REPORTS: Two patients, each with a with complex broncho-oesophageal fistula 2 years after radio-chemotherapy, were hospitalised for severe respiratory infection and extension of the fistula despite previous endoscopic treatment. The first patient presented with respiratory distress (ARDS)...

Post-natal growth in surgical lung conditions, such as congenital diaphragmatic hernia and oesophageal atresia with tracheo-oesophageal fistula, is often sub-optimal in the early years of life when lung growth is occurring. Whilst constitutional, behavioural and mechanical factors may contribute to poor feeding and weight gain, there is a common path of management with greater caloric supplementation that may change growth trajectories and potentially lead to better respiratory, anthropometric and cognitive outcomes...

Parvimonas micra (P. micra) infections causing spinal cord compression are extremely rare. We report an occult oesophageal pleural fistula presenting with spinal epidural and brain abscesses resulting in severe neurological deficits caused by P. micra. Molecular detection proved to be instrumental in identifying the causative pathogen. Essential management with decompression, drainage, antibiotics and fistula repair lead to a good outcome.

Larynx is the second most common site for cancer in the upper aerodigestive tract. One of the dreaded complications following total laryngectomy has been pharyngo cutaneous fistula (PCF). PCF merits special attention due to its significant negative impact on the recovery process. Total laryngectomy profoundly alters speech. Effective voice restoration is essential for the rehabilitation of these patients. Inadequate consensus exists as to the best technique of pharyngeal repair to decrease incidence of PCF and ensure good quality voice following total laryngectomy...

Esophageal atresia (OA) represents one of the commonest and most severe developmental disorders of the foregut, the most proximal segment of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract (esophagus and stomach) in embryological terms. Of intrigue is the common origin from this foregut of two very diverse functional entities, the digestive and respiratory systems. OA appears to result from incomplete separation of the ventral and dorsal parts of the foregut during development, resulting in disruption of esophageal anatomy and frequent association with tracheo-oesophageal fistula...

PURPOSE: Because of an extended gap between esophageal pouches a variety of methods are employed to treat oesophageal atresia (OA) without (type A) or with (type B) proximal tracheooesophageal fistula. This retrospective observational study describes their single centre long-term outcomes from 1947 to 2014. METHODS: Of 693 patients treated for OA 68 (9.7%) had type A (n=58, 8.3%) or B (n=10, 1.4%). Hospital records were reviewed. Main outcome measures were survival and oral intake...

Iatrogenic duodenal injury occurring during laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is managed surgically, though rarely a large, persistent fistula is refractory to surgical interventions. We present the case of a 40-year-old woman transferred to our centre following elective LC for a reported perforated duodenal ulcer. An uncontained leak was found to originate from a 1.5 cm duodenal defect, with no evidence of ulceration. A duodenostomy tube was placed. One month after abdominal closure, the patient continued to have a persistent, large duodenal fistula...

Secondary graft-oesophageal fistula is a fatal complication of aortic arch replacement. We report a successful two-stage surgical management of a graft-oesophageal fistula seen in a 68-year-old woman 3 years after total aortic arch replacement. She presented with a prolonged intractable fever without haematemesis. The fistula occurred between the distal aortic anastomosis and oesophagus; the entire graft was surrounded by air. In the first-stage operation, we performed re-replacement of the entire infected graft, oesophagectomy with cervical oesophagostomy, omental transfer and cervical routing of the stomach roll, through an extended left thoracotomy incision with sternal transection...

Oesophageal fistulae after thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair (TEVAR) for thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) have been reported, although the causes are unknown. One hypothesis is that the structural configuration of the aortic aneurysm, as it protrudes towards the oesophagus, may affect oesophageal fistula formation. The pathological findings of an oesophageal fistula following TEVAR are reviewed here. This report presents the case of a 68-year-old man with a stent graft-related oesophageal fistula after TEVAR for TAA...

REVIEW

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...

BACKGROUND: Loss of proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 5 (Pcsk5) results in multiple developmental anomalies including cardiac malformations, caudal regression, pre-sacral mass, renal agenesis, anteroposterior patterning defects, and tracheo-oesophageal and anorectal malformations, and is a model for VACTERL/caudal regression/Currarino syndromes (VACTERL association - Vertebral anomalies, Anal atresia, Cardiac defects, Tracheoesophageal fistula and/or Esophageal atresia, Renal & Radial anomalies and Limb defects)...

Non-malignant oesophageal diseases are critical to recognize, but can be easily overlooked or misdiagnosed radiologically. In this paper, we cover the salient clinical features and imaging findings of non-malignant pathology of the oesophagus. We organize the many non-malignant diseases of the oesophagus into two major categories: luminal disorders and wall disorders. Luminal disorders include dilatation/narrowing (e.g. achalasia, scleroderma, and stricture) and foreign body impaction. Wall disorders include wall thickening (e...
