Tracheostomy is hardly performed in patients with cervical infection close to the site of the tracheostomy. This study aimed to present and clarify the usefulness and safety of open tracheostomy performed by the paramedian approach technique. The procedure is as follows. A 2.5-cm paramedian incision is made for the tracheostomy on the opposite side of infectious focus; the anterior neck muscles are dissected and split; the trachea is fenestrated by a reverse U-shaped incision; and the fenestral flap of the trachea is fixed to the skin...

INTRODUCTION: Cervical necrotizing fasciitis is a fatal and rapid multi- bacteria infection causing extensive necrosis of the subcutaneous tissues and fascial planes with resultant skin gangrene and associated systemic manifestation. The aim of the present study is to report four cases of cervical necrotizing fascitis highlighting their source. METHOD: The case notes of the patients were retrieved and reviewed, literature search was done using Medline, journals available and various texts...

The Ludwig angina is an infection of the base of the mouth and submandibular region, frecuently after a dental extraction or a piece in bad state. When it surpassees the milohioid muscle it extends dissecting the superficial aponeurotic planes, and can evolve to a necrotisant fascitis. We present the case of a 67 years old man with a painful tumefaction of the mouth base and submandibular region. The CT reflected an heterogenous submaxilar lesion that extended by the deep cervical fascia introducing itself in the thorax...

Necrotizing fasciitis is a soft-tissue infection characterized by progressive destruction of fascia and adipose tissue which may not involve the skin. Cervical necrotizing fascitis (CNF) is an uncommon clinical entity. The development of CNF is frequently related to synergistic infections of aerobic and anaerobic organisms of the upper aerodigestive tract. We describe the first case of CNF due to multi-drug resistant Burkholderia cepacia and Peptostreptococcus infection in an immuno-competent patient without cystic fibrosis...

PURPOSE: We retrospectively reviewed the diagnostic imaging findings (radiography, CT and US) of our cases of necrotizing fascitis of soft tissues looking for signs that could be useful for early and accurate diagnosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: May 1991 to February 1998 we examined 130 patients with progressive necrotizing soft tissue infections; in 32 of them (22-84 years old) the retrospective pathologic diagnosis was necrotizing fascitis. Involved sites were the limbs (26/32), the cervical region (5/32) and the perineal region (1/32)...

Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) of the head and neck is a rare but potentially life-threatening soft tissue infection primarily affecting the superficial fascial planes. It is caused by group A streptococci or by a synergistic combination of aerobe and anaerobe micro-organisms. If proper treatment is delayed, the infection may cause extensive necrosis of overlying skin, extend to deeper planes and produce severe systemic toxicity. Recent reviews suggest that cervical and facial NF should be considered separate clinical entities with different clinical features and prognosis...
