Treatment of post-thoracic endovascular aortic repair aorto-esophageal fistula-only radical surgery can be effective: techniques and sequence of treatment.

J Thorac Dis 2018 Jun;10(6):3869-3873

European Vascular Center Aachen-Maastricht, Department of Vascular Surgery, University Hospital RWTH Aachen, Aachen, Germany.

Aorto-esophageal fistulas (AEFs) are rare after thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR), being associated with the presence of mediastinal hematoma and the need for emergency TEVAR. Left untreated, AEFs are always lethal. "Redo"-stent-grafting can serve as a "bridging" procedure in hemodynamically unstable patients, but is not a durable therapy. Read More

Usage of Bone Wax to Facilitate Percutaneous Endoscopic Cervical Discectomy Via Anterior Transcorporeal Approach for Cervical Intervertebral Disc Herniation.

World Neurosurg 2018 Oct 17;118:102-108. Epub 2018 Jul 17.

Department of Orthopaedics, The Second Affiliated Hospital, Chongqing Medical University, District Yuzhong, Chongqing, China. Electronic address:

Background: Currently, anterior transdiscal access and posterior interlaminar approach are the main approaches for percutaneous endoscopic cervical discectomy (PECD). To overcome access shortcomings, we previously described a novel anterior endoscopic transcorporeal approach on a migrated cervical disc. We innovatively introduced bone wax into endoscopic surgery to aid hemostasis and facilitate the process of drilling an intracorporeal tunnel. Read More

Zenker Diverticulum Treatment: Endoscopic or Surgical?

Chirurgia (Bucur) 2018 Mar-Apr;113(2):234-243

The Zenker Diverticulum is a rare pathology, the selection of patients for invasive treatments is questionable, as well as the applied therapeutic method. The aim of the study is to evaluate the main methods of classical and endoscopic surgical treatment in this pathology and to correlate pathophysiological aspects with clinical consequences.

Material And Method: We included 36 patients with Zenker hypopharyngeal diverticulum treated in 2010/2017 in two university clinics: 7 patients by classical surgical approach at the General and Esophageal Surgery Clinic of St. Read More

Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2018 Jul 30;275(7):1921-1926. Epub 2018 Mar 30.

Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery and Burn Unity, Centro Hospitalar de São João, Alameda Prof. Hernâni Monteiro, 4200-319, Porto, Portugal.

Background: Pharyngocutaneous fistula is a common complication of laryngopharyngeal surgery, being associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Classical regional and free flaps, frequently used in the treatment of this complication, have several limitations, including bulking, donor site morbidity and long operative time. The supraclavicular artery island flap (SCAIF) is a fasciocutaneous flap and presents as an alternative option with good results and without the previously stated limitations. Read More

Intramural oesophageal haematoma following traumatic neck injury.

BMJ Case Rep 2017 Dec 28;2017. Epub 2017 Dec 28.

Radiology Department, Sligo University Hospital, Sligo, Ireland.

This case describes a previously well 90-year-old woman who presented with neck pain, swelling, dysphagia and hoarseness following a motor vehicle collision. Oesophageal oedema was visualised on CT of cervical spine and subsequent CT angiography highlighted an actively bleeding intramural oesophageal haematoma (IOH) extending from the cervical oesophagus to the carina. This rare phenomenon (IOH) has been described as a possible consequence of blunt trauma to the neck; however, we found no cases resulting from acceleration/deceleration injury. Read More

Objective: This retrospective case control study aimed to evaluate the feasibility of using Estimation of Physiological Ability and Surgical Stress (E-PASS) and Physiological and Operative Severity Score for the enumeration of Mortality and Morbidity (POSSUM) systems in patients undergoing spinal surgical procedures. Degenerative spine disease has increased in incidence in aging societies, as has the number of older adult patients undergoing spinal surgery. Many older adults are at a high surgical risk because of comorbidity and poor general health. Read More

Division of Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Hong Kong Medical Centre, Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kong.

The use of surgical drains in certain clean elective operations remains controversial. To evaluate the role of closed-suction drain for an esophageal anastomosis in the neck, we conducted a randomized, controlled study in 40 patients with esophageal carcinoma who underwent esophagectomy with an esophageal anastomosis in the neck, half of whom had a neck drain inserted at the end of operation. The median (range) duration of drainage was 46 hours (36 to 88 hours). Read More

Hypopharyngeal applications of a new flexible robotic system in otolaryngology.

Department of Otolaryngology, George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Washington, DC, 20037, USA.

This case report describes the use a new flexible robotic system in otolaryngology, the FlexRobot for cricopharyngeal myotomy in cadaver dissections, and for the treatment of a patient with esophageal stenosis and secondary dysphagia and dysphonia. The Flexrobot facilitates access to the hypopharynx with increased proximity to the surgical field and improved optics, allowing more exact dilatation and injection in our patient. It also would allow surgeons to reach deep inside the cavity of the hypopharynx into anatomical regions that are typically inaccessible without an open approach, as shown in our cadaveric procedure, where full exposure of the posterior aspect of the cricopharyngeus and isolation of the muscle belly were achieved.

This meta-analysis compared the efficacy and safety of the contact force (CF)-sensing catheter and second-generation cryoballoon (CB) ablation for treating atrial fibrillation (AF). Six controlled clinical trials comparing ablation for AF using a CF-sensing catheter or second-generation CB were identified from PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, Wanfang Data, and China National Knowledge Infrastructure. The procedure duration was significantly lower in the CB group compared with that in the CF group [mean difference (MD)=29. Read More

Background: Pain is a major limiting factor in patient's recovery from major thoracic surgical procedures. Thoracic epidural analgesia (TEA), the current gold standard of perioperative management, has contraindications, can technically fail, and carries a risk of complications such as epidural abscess and spinal hematoma.

Transesophageal Echocardiography Complications in Adult Cardiac Surgery: A Retrospective Cohort Study.

Ann Thorac Surg 2017 Mar 16;103(3):795-802. Epub 2016 Sep 16.

Department of Anesthesia & Perioperative Medicine, St. Boniface Hospital, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Electronic address:

Background: Although there have been several large reviews documenting the complications following intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), most of these prior reports are almost 2 decades old and may not reflect current practices. The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence and types of complications following TEE in a contemporary cardiac surgical population.

Methods: We conducted a retrospective analysis of all cardiac surgical patients having undergone an intraoperative TEE between April 1, 2004, and April 30, 2012. Read More

A case series on the use of circumferential radiofrequency ablation for early esophageal squamous neoplasias in patients with esophageal varices.

Gastrointest Endosc 2017 Feb 27;85(2):322-329. Epub 2016 Jun 27.

Department of Internal Medicine, E-Da Hospital/I-Shou University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

Background And Aims: Endoscopic radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a rapidly evolving therapeutic modality for early esophageal squamous cell neoplasias (ESCNs). However, the feasibility of RFA for ESCNs in the setting of esophageal varices has not been reported.

Methods: We retrospectively enrolled 8 consecutive patients with cirrhosis (Child-Pugh score ≤6) with early flat-type ESCNs (high-grade intraepithelial neoplasia/intramucosal cancer, and Lugol unstained lesion [USL] length ≥3 cm extending ≥1/2 the circumference) on or adjacent to esophageal varices, for which circumferential RFA was applied as the initial treatment.
