Tracheoscopic Findings and Their Impact on Respiratory Symptoms in Children with Esophageal Atresia.

Eur J Pediatr Surg 2019 Mar 21. Epub 2019 Mar 21.

Division of Pediatric Surgery, Universitat zu Koln Medizinische Fakultat, Koln, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany.

Introduction:  Esophageal atresia (EA) is often accompanied by tracheobronchial malformations leading to stridor, recurrent bronchitis, and occasionally to life-threatening obstructive apnea after surgical repair. The aim of this study was to identify the presence of tracheomalacia in patients with EA and tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) pre- and postoperatively and to find endoscopic correlates leading to clinical airway symptoms.

Methods:  In a cohort of 362 patients with EA-TEF who underwent 595 tracheoscopies at the Children's Hospital of Cologne between January 1983 and December 2002, impaired tracheal lumen, localization of TEF, tracheal pulsations, and corresponding clinical symptoms were retrospectively analyzed.

A Case of Pneumomediastinum and Pneumoperitoneum with Concurrent Massive Subcutaneous Emphysema due to Repositioning of a Tracheostomy Tube.

Cureus 2019 Jan 14;11(1):e3881. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Internal Medicine, Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center, New York, USA.

Tracheostomy is a common procedure seen in critically ill patients that require long term ventilatory support. As with all airway access procedures, tracheotomy with prolonged tracheal tube placement comes with possible risks such as tracheal scarring, tracheal rupture, pneumothorax, tracheoesophageal fistula among others. Another possible complication, though rare, is escape of free air into the surrounding tissue, as well as pneumomediastinum (PM). Read More

Oral hormone pregnancy tests and the risks of congenital malformations: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

F1000Res 2018 31;7:1725. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine, Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK.

Oral hormone pregnancy tests (HPTs), such as Primodos, containing ethinylestradiol and high doses of norethisterone, were given to over a million women from 1958 to 1978, when Primodos was withdrawn from the market because of concerns about possible teratogenicity. We aimed to study the association between maternal exposure to oral HPTs and congenital malformations. We have performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of case-control and cohort studies that included data from pregnant women and were exposed to oral HPTs within the estimated first three months of pregnancy, if compared with a relevant control group.

The missing link.

Acta Gastroenterol Belg 2018 Oct-Dec;81(4):531-533

ZNA Middelheim, Department of Gastro-enterology.

We present a case of a 28-year old woman who presented with bizarre wheezing breath sounds on expiration and dysphagia, with unexplained significant dilation of the esophagus mimicking achalasia finally leading to the diagnosis of a very small congenital tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF). Congenital TEF is usually detected shortly after birth and is typically accompanied by esophageal atresia. Congenital TEF without esophageal atresia (H-type fistula) can be missed in early life and diagnosis may be postponed until adulthood due to subtle symptoms. Read More

Not all neonates with oesophageal atresia and tracheoesophageal fistula are a surgical emergency.

J Pediatr Surg 2019 Feb 7;54(2):244-246. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Department of Paediatric Surgery, Evelina Children's Hospital, Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK. Electronic address:

Aim: Infants with oesophageal atresia and distal tracheoesophageal fistula (OA-TOF) occasionally require endotracheal intubation prior to definitive surgery. This creates the risk of preferential ventilation of the fistula leading to gastric distention and subsequent perforation. We aimed to reassess the risk of preoperative positive-pressure ventilation and update recommendations for emergency surgery in this cohort. Read More
