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...

Management of tracheostenosis in adult patients who are either medically unreconstructable due to significant comorbidities or surgically unreconstructable remains a challenge. The tracheal T-tube offers an excellent permanent solution to the problem of the unreconstructable trachea. This article reviews 3 patients who underwent tracheofissure and placement of a tracheal T-tube after failed prior attempts at repair of tracheal stenosis. The tracheal T-tubes have been maintained for 13, 15, and 36 years, and these patients have enjoyed adequate phonatory and respiratory functions with the T-tube plugged and functioning as an airway stent...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, staging laparoscopy has gained acceptance as part of the assessment of resectability of upper gastrointestinal (UGI) malignancies. Not infrequently, we encounter tumours that are either locally advanced; requiring neoadjuvant therapy or occult peritoneal disease that requires palliation. In all these cases, the establishment of enteral feeding during staging laparoscopy is important for patients' nutrition. This review describes our technique of performing laparoscopic feeding jejunostomy and the clinical outcomes...

Hydatid acute pancreatitis is a rare condition and always presents as consequence of acute edematous pancreatitis. Intrabiliary rupture of hepatic hydatid cysts and obstruction of papillary orifice with hydatid membrane is possible mechanism. A 49-year-old man was admitted with epigastric and right upper quadrant pain, nausea, and vomiting. Computed tomography scan showed 5 x 5 cm cyst in left hepatic lobe, which had ruptured into the biliary tract and caused necrotizing pancreatitis. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography trial failed...

A double gallbladder is a rare congenital malformation. The present study describes a case of double gallbladder with secondary common bile duct stones. By way of laparoscopic choledochoscopy, the exploration and removal of a common bile duct stone was performed through the cystic duct. The process involved a primary suture of the cystic duct and was performed without using a T-tube, and completed a surgical removal of the gallbladder. The present case was successfully treated by laparoscopic surgery. From a review of previous studies published in the English language, this study, to the best of our knowledge, is the first report of such a case...
