|Title:||Anaesthetic management of malignant tracheo-oesophageal fistula.||Austin Authors:||Grebenik, C R||Affiliation:||Department of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, Austin Hospital, Heidelberg, Victoria, Australia||Issue Date:||1-Oct-1989||Publication information:||British Journal of Anaesthesia; 63(4): 492-6||Abstract:||The anaesthetic management is described, of a patient with malignant tracheo-oesophageal fistula undergoing palliative oesophageal bypass. The oesophagus was divided and closed at its upper end and replaced with a segment of colon. The fistula remained in situ and fundoplication was performed to allow drainage of the oesophageal remnant but prevent reflux of gastric contents. During a subsequent anaesthetic, gross intestinal distension occurred when gas that had passed through the fistula was unable to vent. The problems of dealing with patients with malignant tracheo-oesophageal fistula are discussed.||Gov't Doc #:||2479407||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/12201||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/2479407||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Aged
