Tracheoesophageal fistula in a treatment naive patient with

Malignant tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) is a serious complication of thoracic malignant diseases and is more common in esophageal cancer than in lung cancer (1,2). The largest study evaluating patients with malignant TEF and bronchoesophageal fistula reported an incidence of 0.16% in 5714 patients with lung cancer (3).

Endoscopic management of tracheoesophageal fistulas

Tracheoesophageal fistulas (TEF) are abnormal, pathologic communications between the posterior wall of the trachea and the anterior wall of the esophagus. TEF can be congenital or acquired, as well as benign or malignant. Most TEF in adults are acquired; congenital TEF are more commonly associated with esophageal atresia at birth.

Management of tracheo-oesophageal fistula in adults

Malignant TOF occurs in a setting of cancers arising from the oesophagus, trachea, lungs, larynx and thyroid. In one of the largest case series of malignant TOF involving 207 patients, 77% were attributed to primary oesophageal cancer and only 16% to primary lung cancer [7]. Further investigation revealed that

Central airway obstruction (CAO) or tracheoesophageal fistulas are life-threatening conditions of progressive stage lung cancer (LC) patients or esophageal cancer (EC) patients after esophagectomy. CAO is defined as occlusion of >50% of the trachea, main bronchi, bronchus intermedius, or a lobar bronchus. Malignant CAO can

Esophageal Cancer Complicated by a Distal Acquired

Esophageal respiratory fistulas, commonly found as a tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF), are abnormal connections between the esophagus and trachea. These can be congenital (infants) or acquired (malignancy). A more rare form of an esophageal respiratory fistula is an abnormal connection between the esophagus and the lung parenchyma also known as

There were nine patients with stage III malignant tumors, and 15 with stage IV malignant tumors. There were 18 males and six females, with a mean

Encephalitis as a complication of a spinal‐esophageal fistula

A spinal‐esophageal fistula (SEF) resulting from discitis is very uncommon. SEF can cause fatal complications or medi-astinal infection, and antibiotics and surgical treatment may be necessary. Discitis is an inflammatory disease caused by an infection of the intervertebral disk. It usually manifests as back pain, limited mobility, and fever.
