[A case of video-assisted thoracic surgery for congenital esophago-bronchial fistula].
Kyobu Geka. 1998 Dec; 51(13):1137-9.KG

Abstract

A 42-year-old male was admitted to our hospital because barium esophagograpm showed an esophago-bronchial fistula with an esophageal deverticulum. He has had frequent episodes of cough at drinking water since childhood. A chest CT scan showed mild inflammatory change and bronchiectasis in the right S6. Division of the fistula by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) was performed. There was no evidence of inflammation and adherent lymph nodes around the fistula. This case was diagnosed as a congenital esophago-bronchial fistula by operative findings and clinical course. The fistula was dissected easily and divided by an auto-suturing instrument. The affected lung could be preserved. The patient was discharged on the 10th postoperative day. VATS is an effective treatment for the patients of congenital esophago-bronchial fistula (Braimbrige type I and II), if they are not accompanied with pulmonary abscess or pleural empyema.
