Tracheoesophageal fistula following button battery ingestion in an infant : Airway management considerations.

Tracheoesophageal fistula following button battery ingestion in an infant : Airway management considerations. Anaesthesist. 2019 Oct 17;: Authors: Hofmeyr R, Bester K, Willms A, Hewitson J, Byhahn C Abstract A 13-month-old infant was admitted to hospital approximately 3 weeks after ingestion of a button battery, which was lodged in the esophagus and had caused a tracheoesophageal fistula requiring mechanical ventilation. Since the battery had partially penetrated into the tracheal lumen just above the carina and also was in direct contact with the pulmonary artery, extensive considerations regarding airway and circulatory management were required preoperatively, which are presented and discussed in this case report.

Olayade, Adesoji Ademuyiwa, Ozor Ifezue, Kasiemobi UchimeAbstractThe diagnosis of oesophageal atresia with or without fistula has traditionally been premised on the clinical finding of excessive salivation, regurgitation of feeds with attendant respiratory compromise in affected neonates. In addition, inability to pass an appropriate sized oesophageal tube into the stomach is confirmatory. OA/TOF is documented to be associated with other congenital abnormalities in up to 50%...

AbstractObjectiveTracheo-oesophageal fistula (TOF) is a rare pathology. It can be congenital and concurrent with other congenital anomalies such as oesophageal atresia, laryngeal and tracheal agenesis, or it can be acquired. The purpose of this study was to analyse various management strategies and their outcomes in infants and children with TOF and identify potential areas for standardisation of the fistula repair procedures.MethodsAt a single institution, a retrospective analysis of infants and children with congenital or acquired TOF between 2013 and 2019 was performed. Thirteen patients were identified. Data collection...

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate the outcomes of surgery to repair tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) caused by mechanical ventilation.MethodCase series and review of all cases reported in English literature. Only reports of TEF following mechanical ventilation and containing description of surgical repair and outcomes were included.ResultsA total of 41 studies comprising 143 patients met the inclusion criteria. Most studies had incomplete information on important variables such as co-morbidity and fistula size. Tracheal resection anastomosis (TRA) was the most common approach, performed in 91 (63.6%) patients (including three newl...

We describe a stillborn female piglet with cardiac anomalies, renal defects, vertebral anomalies, anal atresia and a single umbilical artery (SUA), which are the main features of VACTERL association. In addition, the piglet had a unilateral abdominal wall defect. This was the only affected animal in a litter of 16 piglets. The molecular inductive mechanisms of this disorder are discussed, as well as the comparative and embryological implications.

Objectives: The aim of the study was to evaluate acid and nonacid gastroesophageal reflux in infants and school-aged children with esophageal atresia (EA) using pH-impedance (pH-MII) monitoring. Methods: Between 2012 and 2017, all 24-hour pH-MII studies performed in infants (≤18 months) and 8-year olds with EA were included. Antiacid therapy was discontinued before study. Exclusion criteria were: isolated tracheoesophageal fistula; esophageal replacement therapy; tube feeding; and monitoring

Publication date: Available online 22 October 2019Source: Surgery (Oxford)Author(s): Spencer W. BeasleyAbstractOesophageal atresia and tracheo-oesophageal fistula is a congenital structural abnormality that affects 1:4500 live infants. It is due to failure of the primitive foregut tube to separate correctly into oesophagus and trachea. About 50% have associated abnormalities, of which the VACTERL (Vertebral, Anorectal, Cardiac, Tracheo-oEsophageal, Renal and Limb) association is the most common. Prematurity is common and all have some degree of tracheomalacia. Surgery of the common type can be performed through a fourth in...
