Introduction: Postintubation tracheoesophageal fistula is a severe complication occurring under certain conditions in patients that require prolonged mechanical ventilation. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This article focuses on a sample of 11 patients with postintubation tracheoesophageal fistula, operated in our department between 2005 and 2015. The anterior approach with tracheal resection was performed in 10 of these patients, while an atypical surgical technique was preferred in a case involving a large-sized fistula...

AIM: Oesophagealatresia/tracheo-oesophageal fistula (OA-TOF) is associated with tracheomalacia (TM). In our institution it is routine for OA-TOF patients to undergo dynamic flexible bronchoscopy (DFB) assessing both the site of the fistula and the presence or absence of TM. We aimed to determine the value of this investigation as a screening tool to predict subsequent symptomatic tracheomalacia in these patients. METHODS: All patients with OA-TOF who underwent DFB at the time of initial repair between June 2014 and November 2016 were included prospectively...

Introduction and aims: The role of capsule endoscopy (CE) in patients with liver cirrhosis (LC) has yet to be established; however, it is likely that it will remain a valuable diagnostic modality in several groups of patients with LC. The primary aims of the current prospective interventional study are to examine the prevalence for small bowel lesions and transit time of CE in the gastrointestinal tract in patients with LC with oesophageal varices (EVs) requiring endoscopic therapies...

REVIEW
Colin Wallis, Clare A McLaren
Tracheobronchomalacia is a rare but clinically troublesome condition in paediatrics. The softening of the major airways - which can include some or all of the tracheobronchial tree can lead to symptoms ranging from the minor (harsh barking cough, recurrent chest infections) to severe respiratory difficulties including prolonged ventilator support and 'near death attacks'. The causes are broadly divided into intrinsic softening of the airway wall which is considered a primary defect (e.g. syndromes; post tracheo-oesophageal fistula repair; extreme prematurity) or secondary malacia due to external compression from vascular structures or cardiac components...

An aorto-oesophageal fistula is a rare, life-threatening complication caused by sharp foreign bodies in the oesophagus. We report an aorto-oesophageal fistula in the inferior segment of thoracic oesophagus caused by a fish bone. Multiplanar reconstruction of computed tomography and computed tomography angiography demonstrated that a foreign body had pierced from the left posterior wall of the oesophagus into the descending aortic wall. These computed tomography images can help radiologists make the correct diagnosis and provide precise evidence for clinicians to perform a timely surgical intervention...

A 58-year-old man presented with fever and chest pain 11 days after atrial fibrillation catheter ablation. The diagnosis of pericardio-oesophageal fistula was made. Aggressive surgical management was decided. The patient was managed using extracorporeal life support, aortic valve replacement and a pulmonary patch, as well as an oesophageal stent. The patient was discharged from hospital approximately 2 months later. The use of a pulmonary patch is a rare but a highly effective technique that can be used in this indication...

OBJECTIVES: Intrathoracic fistulae are among the potential sequelae of radiation therapy, empyema and abscess clearance and surgical tumour resections. Interdisciplinary plastic-reconstructive flap surgery is a helpful tool for the successful treatment of intrathoracic fistulae. METHODS: From February 2006 to April 2016, 13 patients (3 females and 10 males) underwent flap surgery for bronchial (n = 5), tracheal (n = 2), oesophageal (n = 2), post-pneumonectomy bronchopleural fistula (n = 2), tracheo-oesophageal (n = 1), gastrobronchial (n = 1) and oesophagobronchial (n = 1) fistulae...

OBJECTIVES: Secondary aorto-oesophageal fistula is a rare, lethal complication occurring after thoracic endovascular aneurysmal repair. The cause of secondary aorto-oesophageal fistula is unknown, but a reduction in local oesophageal mucosal blood flow (OMBF) may be a basis for such a devastating sequela. Our study aims to develop a novel blood flow sensor probe to detect changes in OMBF after thoracic stent graft implantation in an experimental swine model. METHODS: A novel laser Doppler flowmetry sensor probe incorporating an optical fibre sensor within a nasogastric tube was developed using microelectromechanical system technology...

Oesophageal foreign body is an emergency situation. Once oesophageal perforation occurs, damage and subsequent infection involving surrounding tissue or organs may ensue. We present here a rare case of aorto-oesophageal fistula which was treated with challenges. An old lady with fishbone induced oesophageal perforation, aortic pseudoaneurysm and mediastinal haematoma was treated with great vessel stent-graft placed in aortic arch, and the fish bone was removed under endoscopy thereafter. During the early follow-up period, part of the graft stent was discovered in the oesophageal perforation with no haemorrhage...

Anastomotic leak after oesophagectomy is associated with poor outcomes. We report the successful utilization of venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in conjunction with tracheal stent to treat and heal multiple tracheal-neo-oesophageal fistulae following oesophagectomy.

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)...
