Gastric tube-to-tracheal fistula closed with a latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flap


Gastric tube-to-tracheal fistula closed with a latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flap



Annals of Thoracic Surgery 68(2): 561-562

A gastric tube-to-airway fistula is a very rare complication after esophageal reconstruction. A patient with a gastric tube-to-tracheal fistula that developed more than 9 years after surgery for cancer of the cervical esophagus was treated with transposition of a pedicled latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flap. Careful perioperative respiratory management helped save the patient's life.
