Cardiocutaneous fistula. (1/133)

Infection of the Teflon pledgets on the heart suture line after left ventricular aneurysm repair, presenting late with a fistulous tract connecting the heart with the skin (cardiocutaneous fistula) is an uncommon but potentially serious condition. The case is reported of a 73 year old man who developed a cardiocutaneous fistula extending through the left hemidiaphragm and draining at the abdominal wall, which developed six years after left ventricular aneurysmectomy. Following radiographic evaluation, which established the diagnosis, the Teflon pledgets and fistulous tract were successfully surgically removed. Prompt diagnosis depends on a high index of suspicion. Eradication of infection requires excision of infected material, which must be planned on an individual basis.  (+info)

Infliximab for the treatment of fistulas in patients with Crohn's disease. (2/133)

BACKGROUND: Enterocutaneous fistulas are a serious complication of Crohn's disease and are difficult to treat. Infliximab, a chimeric monoclonal antibody to tumor necrosis factor alpha, has recently been developed as a treatment for Crohn's disease. We conducted a randomized, multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of infliximab for the treatment of fistulas in patients with Crohn's disease. METHODS: The study included 94 adult patients who had draining abdominal or perianal fistulas of at least three months' duration as a complication of Crohn's disease. Patients were randomly assigned to receive one of three treatments: placebo (31 patients), 5 mg of infliximab per kilogram of body weight (31 patients), or 10 mg of infliximab per kilogram (32 patients); all three were to be administered intravenously at weeks 0, 2, and 6. The primary end point was a reduction of 50 percent or more from base line in the number of draining fistulas observed at two or more consecutive study visits. A secondary end point was the closure of all fistulas. RESULTS: Sixty-eight percent of the patients who received 5 mg of infliximab per kilogram and 56 percent of those who received 10 mg per kilogram achieved the primary end point, as compared with 26 percent of the patients in the placebo group (P=0.002 and P=0.02, respectively). In addition, 55 percent of the patients assigned to receive 5 mg of infliximab per kilogram and 38 percent of those assigned to 10 mg per kilogram had closure of all fistulas, as compared with 13 percent of the patients assigned to placebo (P=0.001 and P=0.04, respectively). The median length of time during which the fistulas remained closed was three months. More than 60 percent of patients in all the groups had adverse events. For patients treated with infliximab, the most common were headache, abscess, upper respiratory tract infection, and fatigue. CONCLUSIONS: Infliximab is an efficacious treatment for fistulas in patients with Crohn's disease.  (+info)

Thyroglossal duct cysts: sonographic appearances in adults. (3/133)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Previous reports have suggested that thyroglossal duct cysts (TDCs) appear on sonograms as well-defined cystic masses with thin walls and posterior enhancement. In our experience, however, TDCs have a variable sonographic appearance. We report our findings in 40 patients with TDCs and document the variability of sonographic patterns. METHODS: All patients in whom the diagnosis of TDC was made clinically (by at least two head and neck surgeons) and sonography detected a cystic mass related to the hyoid bone were included in this study. Sonograms of 40 patients with TDCs were reviewed. The features evaluated were the location, internal echogenicity, posterior enhancement, presence of septa, solid component, and fistulous tract. The echo pattern was not compared with the biopsy results. RESULTS: Four patterns of TDCs were identified: anechoic (28%), homogeneously hypoechoic with internal debris (18%), pseudosolid (28%), and heterogeneous (28%). The majority showed posterior enhancement (88%), were midline (63%), and infrahyoid in location (83%). Only half of all TDCs showed a typical thin wall. CONCLUSION: On sonograms, TDCs in adults are not simple cysts, as previously suggested, but have a complex pattern ranging from a typical anechoic to a pseudosolid appearance.  (+info)

Hydrogen peroxide enhanced ultrasound- fistulography in the assessment of enterocutaneous fistulas complicating Crohn's disease. (4/133)

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Proper management of enterocutaneous fistulas complicating Crohn's disease largely depends on the anatomical characteristics of the sinus tracks as well as the coexistence of complications such as abscesses and distal bowel stenosis. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the accuracy of a new technique (hydrogen peroxide enhanced ultrasound (US)-fistulography) compared with conventional x ray fistulogram and/or surgical findings in the detection of Crohn's disease associated enterocutaneous fistulas. METHODS: Patients with known Crohn's disease and a suspicion of enterocutaneous fistulas were prospectively studied with this novel technique, conventional x ray fistulogram, and barium radiography as well as with computed tomography whenever an abdominal abscess was suspected at US. In those undergoing surgery, intraoperative findings were also compared. RESULTS: Seventeen of 502 (3.4%) consecutive patients with Crohn's disease seen over a ten month period had associated enterocutaneous fistulas and were enrolled. Hydrogen peroxide enhanced US-fistulography visualised the extent and configuration of fistula in all cases: 13 patients had a fistula arising from the ileum and two from the sigmoid colon, whereas in two there was no evidence of communication with intestinal loops; in contrast, conventional x ray fistulography missed a correct definition of the fistulous branches or communication with intestinal loops in 50% (4/8) and 36% (4/11) of patients respectively; barium radiography showed fistulas in two cases only. The presence of abscesses along or close to the sinus track, as well as the coexistence of intestinal stenosis, was correctly detected at US in all patients. CONCLUSIONS: Hydrogen peroxide enhanced US-fistulography could be considered the diagnostic procedure of choice in Crohn's disease associated enterocutaneous fistulas, as it is at least as accurate, simple, and safe as conventional x ray fistulogram, does not miss coexisting abdominal complications, and also provides information on the diseased bowel segments. In addition, it can be easily repeated over time in order to monitor the course of fistulas undergoing conservative treatment.  (+info)

Persistent frontal fistula. (5/133)

The frontal sinus is prone to various complications--usually secondary to blockage of the fronto-nasal duct and stagnation of frontal sinus secretions. These pent-up secretions may result in pressure necrosis of the inferior or posterior sinus wall. Involvement of anterior wall is uncommon. We present a case of an anterior wall frontal sinus fistula and discuss its management.  (+info)

Possibilities of preventing osteoradionecrosis during complex therapy of tumors of the oral cavity. (6/133)

In recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of tumors of the head and neck. Their successful treatment is one of the greatest challenges for physicians dealing with oncotherapy. An organic part of the complex therapy is preoperative or postoperative irradiation. Application of this is accompanied by a lower risk of recurrences, and by a higher proportion of cured patients. Unfortunately, irradiation also has a disadvantage: the development of osteoradionecrosis, a special form of osteomyelitis, in some patients (mainly in those cases where irradiation occurs after bone resection or after partial removal of the periosteum). Once the clinical picture of this irradiation complication has developed, its treatment is very difficult. A significant result or complete freedom from complaints can be attained only rarely. Attention must therefore be focussed primarily on prevention, and the oral surgeon, the oncoradiologist and the patient too can all do much to help prevent the occurrence of osteoradionecrosis. Through coupling of an up-to-date, functional surgical attitude with knowledge relating to modern radiology and radiation physics, the way may be opened to forestall this complication that is so difficult to cure.  (+info)

Neck infection associated with pyriform sinus fistula: imaging findings. (7/133)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Acute suppurative neck infections associated with branchial fistulas are frequently recurrent. In this study, we describe the imaging findings of acute suppurative infection of the neck caused by a third or fourth branchial fistula (pyriform sinus fistula). METHODS: Imaging findings were reviewed in 17 patients (11 female and six male patients, 2 to 49 years old) with neck infection associated with pyriform sinus fistula. Surgery or laryngoscopic examination confirmed the diagnoses. Fourteen patients had a history of recurrent neck infection and seven had cutaneous openings on the anterior portion of the neck (all lesions were on the left side). Imaging studies included barium esophagography (n = 16), CT (n = 14), MR imaging (n = 2), and sonography (n = 3). RESULTS: A sinus or fistulous tract was identified in eight of 16 patients on barium esophagograms. In 14 patients, CT studies showed the inflammatory infiltration and/or abscess formation along the course of the sinus or fistulous tract from the pyriform fossa to the thyroid gland. In nine patients, CT scans showed the entire course or a part of the sinus or fistulous tract as a tiny spot containing air. MR images showed a sinus or fistulous tract in two patients, whereas sonograms could not depict a sinus or fistulous tract in three patients. All 17 patients were treated with antibiotics. In one patient, the sinus tract was surgically excised, while 15 patients underwent chemocauterization of the sinus or fistulous tract with good outcome. Follow-up was possible for 16 of the 17 patients. CONCLUSION: When an inflammatory infiltration or abscess is present between the pyriform fossa and the thyroid bed in the lower left part of the neck, an infected third or fourth branchial fistula should be strongly suspected.  (+info)

Lymphocutaneous fistula as a long-term complication of multiple central venous catheter placement. (8/133)

We report a case of a lymphocutaneous fistula in a 19-month-old boy who had been a premature neonate, born in the 23rd week of gestation. The fistula, an apparent complication of central venous line placement during the patient's first 5 months of life, was composed of a distinct lymphatic vessel bundle in the right supraclavicular region, with its exit point at the posterior aspect of the right shoulder. The drainage ceased immediately after resection and repair of a 1-cm obstruction in the superior vena cava.  (+info)

The sudden appearance of intestinal contents draining from an abdominal incision is an emotionally devastating experience for both patients and surgeons. An enterocutaneous fistulas (ECF) is an abnormal communication between the bowel lumen and skin, often associated with fluid and electrolyte abnormalities, malnutrition, and sepsis. It is reported that spontaneous fistula closure rates vary from 15% to 71% after conservative treatment with wound care, control of infection, and nutritional support. Sufficient time should be allotted for the ECF to heal with conservative treatment, which also results in long-term discomfort.. Adjuvant use of fibrin glue (FG) in the fistula tract may promote healing in low-output ECF. Containing high concentrations of human fibrinogen and thrombin, FG have been used extensively in many surgical fields as a biological adhesive system for tissue adhesion or hemostasis. Different types of FG are now employed: commercially produced and homemade autologous adhesives. ...
In small low anal fistulas, first excise the fistula tract followed by application of Kshara and wait for 2 minutes. Later neutralize with Lemon juice and pack with Yastimadhu Taila. It is helpful for quick healing and avoids recurrence of fistula tract.. In high level fistulas, excision of fistulous tract was done partially followed by application of Kshara. Later Kshara Sutra is applied in remaining fistulous tract at anal sphincteric area. The excised fistulous tract heals completely with help of Kshara and remaining fistulous tract was cut by Kshara Sutra ligation. So that patient can be cured at less time and pain.. In this technique, after excision of fistulous tract and applying Kshara, leads to debridement of the fibrous tissue and at the same time remaining wound will be healed by its Scraping and Healing property of Kshara. In the mean time the Kshara sutra ligation at sphincteric area of fistulous tract leads to cutting and debridement and drainage of fistulous tract at the same time ...

PROCEDURE: A PARQ conference was held and written consent to proceed was obtained. The skin overlying the left lower abdomen was prepped in a sterile fashion. Subcutaneous lidocaine was injected for local anesthesia. A 5-French Kumpe catheter was advanced into a enterocutaneous fistula and contrast dye was injected to opacify the fistula tract. A wire was then passed into the jejunum through the tract. The tract was then sequentially dilated. A 22-French sheath was advanced over the wire and positioned in the jejunum. A 7-mm Cook enterocutaneous fistula plug was then deployed within the enterocutaneous fistula tract under fluoroscopy. 1 g Ancef was flushed into the sheath. The sheath was removed. The device was then sutured to the skin using resorbable Vicryl suture. The device was trimmed and a Molnar disk was attached ...
Enterocutaneous fistulas (ECF) are abnormal communications between the gastrointestinal tract and the skin. Although rare, they are associated with considerable morbidity and mortality. Death related to ECF remains disproportionately high when compared with other surgical conditions. Mortality rates for ECF vary from 6 - 33% [1-5].. The incidence and aetiology of fistula are highly dependent on the surgical experience and case load at particular institutions and on patient and disease related cofactors. Much of the published data relate to experience at specialised centres treating complex cases in particularly unstable patients[6]. St. Marks Hospital is a national and international referral centre for intestinal and colorectal disorders. It is one of two national intestinal failure centres in England. The Intestinal Failure Unit has a long standing interest in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and this is reflected in the high prevalence of IBD patients treated. A recently completed audit has ...
Methods Our study collected information from 177 consecutive patients managed with enterocutaneous fistulae over 8 years (January 2003-June 2010). Statistical analysis was undertaken using Stata software programme.. Fistulae healing were measured on a binary scale. As a result of the binary nature of the outcome, all analysis was performed using logistic regression.. Univariate analysis was performed on variables: age, co-morbidity, body mass index, source of referral, time to referral, aetiology, fistulae origin, fistulae complexity, fistulae output, presence of laparostomy, albumin on presentation, number of previous operations, time of surgery, bowel defunctioning. Odds ratio was used to reflect odds of fistulae healing in each category relative to a baseline.. Multivariate analysis of the explanatory variables upon the outcomes was examined. The results were used to generate a scoring system for predicting fistulae healing. The scoring system was evaluated by comparing the predicted healing ...
Salvage surgery of the neck and upper aerodigestive tract in the era of chemoradiation is unfortunately associated with a greater incidence of major postoperative complications compared to primary surgery, with an increase in morbidity, mortality, duration of hospitalization and related costs [4-8]. In a recent article, in 24 patients previously treated with chemoradiation and subjected to total laryngectomy combined with total or partial pharyngectomy, Sewnaik et al. [3] reported a postoperative complication rate of 92%. Among early complications (within 3 months of operation), the most common were pharyngocutaneous fistula (50%), wound dehiscence (29%) and postoperative hemorrhage (21%), while among late complications dysphagia (25%) and stenosis of the tracheostoma were most frequent (21%).. In the literature, the reported rate of pharyngocutaneous fistula following total laryngectomy is around 16% after primary surgery [9], which increases to 19-50% after salvage laryngectomy [3, 10, 11]. ...
Objective. Pharyngocutaneous fistula is considered one of the major complications in the post-operative period after total laryngectomy/pharyngolaryngectomy, leading to a severe adverse impact for the patient and society. This study aimed to identify all the described pharyngocu-taneous fistula predictive factors and risk classifications.. Methods. Research was conducted to identify all the studies assessing predictive factors and risk classification for pharyngocutaneous fistula development published until April of 2012 (n=846). The included studies were analyzed and data regarding their identification, methodological quality and results were recorded.. Results. A total of 39 studies were included. The variables consistently reported as associated with fistula development were nutritional deficiency, American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) classification, high consumption of alcohol, anemia and hypoalbuminemia, co-morbidities, advanced N stage, location and extent of primary tumor, ...
During the last 12 years 400 renal allograft biopsies have been performed at this institution to facilitate the differential diagnosis of post-transplant renal dysfunction. Of these cases significant urological complications occurred in 3. In 1 patient a caliceal cutaneous fistula developed after an open surgical biopsy, which required nephrostomy drainage for 6 months. The other 2 patients had needle biopsies and, subsequently, anuria occurred from ureteral blood clots. The problem resolved spontaneously after 23 hours in 1 patient and after 30 hours in the other. The complications in these 3 patients are believed to have resulted from a deeper biopsy and consequent damage to the medullary vasculature and the pelviocaliceal collecting system. Because of these and other potential problems, renal transplant biopsies should be performed by experienced staff, after careful consideration of the risk/benefit ratio at each individual setting.
Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol. 2018 Jan;104:14-18. doi: 10.1016/j.ijporl.2017.10.035. Epub 2017 Oct 29. Li W1, Xu H1, Zhao L1, Li X2. Abstract BACKGROUND: Branchial anomalies (BAs) account for 20% of all congenital masses in children. We sought to review the incidence of involvement of individual anomalies, diagnostic methods, surgical treatment, and complications of BAs in children. In addition, we also classified our study and analyzed a congenital lower neck cutaneous fistula near the sternoclavicular joint that was thought to be the skin-side remnant of the fourth BAs. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of 105 children who were referred to our hospital from June 2009 to December 2016 for the treatment of BAs. RESULTS: In this series, there were 51 males and 54 females. The age at the time of operation varied from 19 days to 13 years, and the mean age was 4.5 years. A total of 33 (31.4%) cases presented with first BAs, 13 (12.4%) presented with second BAs, and 59 (56.2%) ...

I am a 27 years old woman who had weight loss surgery done 4 months back. After 2 days, one of the staples came off and I had peritonitis. I am tube fed and have an appratus that collects whatever my stomach drains, which is mostly saliva. Even though I am draining less now, the perforation doesnt seem to close even after 4 months. When I left the hospital I was draining 180 ml per day, which came down to 13 ml/day, but now it has increased to 50-60 ml/day again. I am taking Ensure and Isopure and the nutrients in these two are supposed to help the perforation close. Two days back, I had blood work done and everything was fine, except my albumin levels were low. |b|Is it essential that my albumin should be high in order to get the perforation closed?|/b|

Basically, the management of this disgusting malady, described by Guillaume Dupuytren as an accidental anus, consists of trying to decreasing its output and waiting until the inevitable septic abdominal disaster settles down enough to do something surgically definitive. While waiting, one deals with abdominal collections, poor nutrition, eroding skin, angry relatives, and all manner of fluid/electrolyte bewilderment.
The VAC system has been used for chronic non-healing wounds (pressure ulcers, venous and arterial ulcers, diabetic ulcers), subacute non-healing wounds (dehisced incisions), acute and trauma wounds, meshed grafts and flaps, graft and donor flap sites, and other wounds such as burns, snake bite, spider bite, frost bite.7. The VAC system is thought to work by several different mechanisms. Active removal of excess interstitial fluids from tissues may decompress small blood vessels allowing incremental increases of blood flow and therefore improve supply of oxygen and nutrients for tissue repair. The increased blood flow speeds up granulation tissue formation by 63% over non-VAC treated wounds.5 Mechanical stress may also play a part by switching on a mechanism which increases cellular proliferation and angiogenesis similar to the Ilizarov technique.5 The VAC also leads to reduced bacterial colonisation by anaerobic organisms through increasing tissue oxygen concentrations. Neutrophils use the ...

There are many terms which are often confused due to some common name associated with them. A lot of us would assume when asked What is a sinus tract? is something related to our sinuses or sinus infection. But the fact is that it is not so. The sinus tract is an abnormal channel which opens in any structure of the skin in any part of your body and ends in bone marrows. This is a channel or a passageway which is often called fistula. This makes a kind of passage between the skin opening and bones.. Thus is laymans language what is a sinus tract is understood as a passage or an abnormal channel from skin of any part to the underlying bones. What cause sinus tract? This abnormal opening is a result of an infection or some other rare occurrences like fistulous rheumatism or due to a synovial joint in rheumatoid arthritis or classic fistulous rheumatism.. What is a sinus tract in septic arthritis? In septic arthritis there occurs some abnormalities where there are some fluid filled channels that ...

A pancreatic fistula is an abnormal communication between the pancreas and other organs due to leakage of pancreatic secretions from damaged pancreatic ducts. An external pancreatic fistula is one that communicates with the skin, and is also known as a pancreaticocutaneous fistula, whereas an internal pancreatic fistula communicates with other internal organs or spaces. Pancreatic fistulas can be caused by pancreatic disease, trauma, or surgery. An external pancreatic fistula is an abnormal communication between the pancreas (actually pancreatic duct) and the exterior of the body via the abdominal wall. Loss of bicarbonate-rich pancreatic fluid via a pancreatic fistula can result in a hyperchloraemic or normal anion gap metabolic acidosis. Loss of a small volume of fluid will not cause a problem but an acidosis is common if the volume of pancreatic fluid lost from the body is large. First described by Smith (1953), and elaborated upon by Cameron et al. (1976), internal pancreatic fistulas can ...
Introduction: One of the most common complications following total laryngectomy is pharyngocutaneous fistula (PCF). Various methods have been proposed to treat this disorder in recent studies, including a range of simple and conservative treatments to more aggressive therapies, such as various surgical procedures. One of the most innovative and least developed methods is the use of plasma-rich compounds, such as fibrin glue. Case Report: The patient was a 55-year-old woman with a transglottic squamous cell carcinoma of the T3N0M0 stage and PCF development following total laryngectomy surgery with total thyroidectomy and bilateral elective cervical lymph node dissection level I-IV. In spite of conservative treatment, the fistula was not recovered after 3 weeks. It was decided to perform fibrin glue injection into the fistula tract via the endoscopic approach. One month after the fibrin glue injection, no evidence of contrast extravasation was observed on barium swallow test, and the fistula was
First branchial cleft anomalies are uncommon and comprise 1%-8% of all branchial cleft anomalies.1 They often present in the first two decades of life and present a clinical challenge as they can easily be misdiagnosed and thus inappropriately treated. They are thought to arise as a result of developmental abnormalities of the branchial apparatus and may take the form of a cyst, sinus, or fistula.2. Clinically they may present with repeated episodes of infection of the lesion. This may manifest itself with a cystic swelling or discharge from a fistulous opening either pre-auricularly or post-auricularly, in the cheek, or high in the neck. A thorough otological examination should be performed in all cases and may reveal a pit visible in the external canal at the site of entrance of a sinus or fistula. Such a lesion may result in otorrhoea or otitis externa with infective exacerbations. The meatus may be found to be partially or completely obstructed by bulging of the canal wall because of a ...

Parents usually ask the Urologist that their child urinates finely and has bowel movements just fine. So why are we having the surgery done if it doesnt hurt him and he urinates just fine? Simple answer to these parents is Surgery is essential because Hypospadias can cause problems as he gets older. Problems are listed below: 1. Irregular urine stream .He would have to pee sitting down his whole life. 2. His penis would look different than other boys. 3. It could potentially create fertility issues. The opening of the penis is not close to the cervix as a result of which the sperm is not in the right place to cause pregnancy. 4. If the penis has chordee (downward curvature of the penis) it becomes very painful, difficult or even impossible to have intercourse as an adult.. If the hypospadias needs to be repaired, this is done by surgery. The aim is to repair and reconstruct the urethra. Depending on the degree of the hypospadias, the surgery can range from relatively simple to very challenging. ...

In all, 214 consecutive children with distal hypospadias were identified who had had a GRAP repair, of whom 205 were suitable for further study. The position of the urethral meatus in these children is summarized in Table 1. While some children were admitted before surgery for social reasons, most operations, i.e. in 183 patients (89%), were undertaken as day cases.. Problems immediately after surgery were rare; seven children (3.4%) were admitted overnight with medical problems. Of these boys, two had difficulty in voiding, one of whom required catheter drainage of the bladder. Two patients with uncontrolled pain required analgesia, two had significant nausea and vomiting, and one had a penile haematoma. Fifteen children (7.3%) stayed for one night after repair, with no clearly documented clinical indication.. A fistula occurred in 15 patients (7%); of these, one is known to have healed spontaneously, eight have been corrected surgically on a day-case basis and one fistula was not initially ...

A fistula is an abnormal communication between two internal organs, or from an organ to the outside of the body. Infection, inflammatory disease (e.g., Crohns disease), tumors, trauma, and surgery may lead to a fistula.

Although gastric bypass surgery continues to grow in popularity for dramatic weight loss and considerable weight maintenance in the morbidly obese, there has been little attention given to the possible complications associated with these procedures. It is estimated that more than 10% of patients who undergo the Roux-en-Y procedure have undergone complications; the rate of complications involving the duodenal switch procedure have not been clearly established given that it is still a relatively new procedure. Both an upper GI series and CT examination are important in diagnosing and following up on post-operative complications. Our findings support those of the current literature to include six unusual complications which include the following: internal herniation through the small bowel mesentery, internal herniation through the transverse mesocolon, external herniation through the abdominal wall incision, enterocutaneous fistulas, Roux-en-Y configuration with anti-peristaltic inversion of the ...
Perianal fistula is a chronic phase of anorectal infection that occurs predominantly in the third and fourth decade of life. According to Parks classification fistulas have been divided into intersphincteric, transsphincteric, suprasphincteric and extrasphincteric. Simple fistulotomy can be performed with satisfactory outcomes in low fistula tracts but in high (transsphincteric) fistulas it may affect anal continence seriously.. Therefore sphincter preserving procedures should be preferred in these cases. Rectal advancement mucosal flap (RAF) is one of the methods used in surgical fistula eradication with high success rate in cryptoglandular fistulas. However, this technique is technically demanding and results can be expert depended with wide spread of healing rates (24-100%) in individual studies as referred in recent systematic review.. Ligation of the intersphincteric fistula tract (LIFT) has been presented in 2007 as a simple sphincter preserving technique. The success rate varies between ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Crohns disease. T2 - Rational management. AU - Picco, Michael F.. PY - 2002. Y1 - 2002. N2 - Crohns disease can involve any part of the digestive tract; it can manifest as inflammatory (diarrhea, abdominal pain, and fever), penetrating (abscess or fistula), or stricturing (recurrent bowel obstruction) disease. Treatment is based on the location and activity of the disease. Mesalamine is recommended to induce and maintain remission in patients with mild to moderate nonpenetrating, nonstricturing disease. Antibiotics may be used as an alternative or adjunct to mesalamine; ciprofloxacin and metronidazole are helpful in fistulizing Crohns disease. For patients with moderate to severe disease, corticosteroids are recommended to induce remission; infliximab is an alternative for those with severe or refractory disease. Remission is then maintained with immunosuppressive therapy, not with corticosteroids. Fistulas are difficult to treat but may respond to antibiotics or azathioprine; ...

Malnutrition is closely associated with the site and output of a fistula and is a major concern in patients with enterocutaneous upper gastrointestinal fistulae. In particular, hypoproteinaemia leads to delayed gastric emptying and prolonged ileus, increased frequency of wound dehiscence, greater risk of infection, and decreased muscle bulk and function. In addition, fibroblast activity is reduced, delaying wound healing and causing failure of scar contracture. Patients are frequently malnourished prior to the development of the fistula and indeed malnutrition may increase the risk of fistula formation and greatly increase the required healing time.34-37 A further important consideration of inadequate nutrition is a decrease in amino acid precursor availability for major brain neurotransmitters. Malnutrition can frequently lead to a state of mental dullness, depression, and apathy, which will have a considerable negative impact on the patient. As complication rates are higher in malnourished ...

PURPOSE: To analyze agreement on postoperative complications after hypospadias surgery according to medical records and parents reports. MATERIALS & METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, data were collected from 409 children who received an initial one-stage hypospadias correction in the Radboudumc, The Netherlands. Postoperative complications according to medical records were compared with parent-reported complications in an online questionnaire. Main complications studied were wound-related complications, urinary tract infections, fistulas, stenosis, and prepuce-related complications. Agreement was determined by Cohens kappa coefficient. RESULTS: Slightly less complications were mentioned in medical records (37%) compared to parents reports (42%). Overall agreement was moderate (kappa=0.50, 95% confidence interval (CI):0.41-0.59), but poor for some specific complications. Agreement was higher for complications that needed reoperation compared to when no reoperation was performed ...
The Wound Healing Center offers a comprehensive wound management approach to healing through our clinics interdisciplinary team approach. As an outpatient, appointment-based program, the Wound Care Centers staff is committed to providing each patient with an advanced, individualized treatment plan for their chronic, non-healing wounds. These wounds are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly improved from conventional treatments. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a problem wound. Associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins, and immobility, non-healing wounds tend to lead to lower quality of life, as well as potential amputation. When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required for healing. This is where the Wound Care Center can help.. About Healogics ...
As I mentioned a month ago I was a guinea pig on the renal ultrasound course today and had my fistula scanned by 14 post-grad doctors planning to specialize in renal medicine. The scanning itself was fascinating, seeing the veins and arteries in my arm, watching the blood flow etc, though I was a little unnerved when the tutor mentioned that there is an area of thickening or possible thrombosis in the artery again (I had to have fistula angioplasty earlier this year when the fistula stopped working due to thrombosis) - however he did say that the fistula is still patent and the blood flow sufficient at the moment. Ill need to be vigilant with checking the bruit ...
[vc_column width=1/6][vc_column width=2/3]Adequate access to the patients blood flow for the cleansing process is one of the critical points of treatment. The formation of an arteriovenous fistula, by joining a vein and a patients artery increases the flow and resistance of the capillaries in the intervened area. Fistula needles are inserted directly into the reinforced capillary providing easy and less traumatic access for the patient. Access through fistula is the preferred procedure to access the patients bloodstream.
My youngest daughter has an enlarged right coronary artery with a fistula that sends blood to the wrong part of her heart. We think she was probably not born with it because it never surfaced until junior high. (Actually after a very severe case of mono) Shes had three unsuccessful procedures where doctors tried to coil occlude the fistula via heart cath. The last attempt was almost 5 years ago. After telling us that it would only get worse, not better, theyre now saying shed be better off not fooling with it again. The last procedure took 8 hrs and they inserted 7 caths to work through. She is now 19 years old and scared to death to go back to a cardiologist. They originally told us that if she was ever able to get insurance due to this condition, it would cost a fortune. Since shes a full-time student shes still on our policy. We live in TN and the first 2 procedures were done here. We took her to TX for the last. Anyone familiar with this type of problem?

This is just my opinion - if your fistula not infected and not draining - do NOT mess with it. I had fistulatomy in October 09, wound closed to about 95% and will not heal any more. I am in pain sitting and BM is mess - keep leaking after each BM. My CRS tells me he pretty much done - and there is nothing surgically he can do. I have been tested for Chrons - that was inconclusive - I am one of those people - For sure UC, maybe Chrohns. Had blood work - that was not clear, had capsule test - that did not show Chrons.

I saw my doctor about a week and a half ago, after having a lot of pain and missing a day of work so I could rest and take some Percocet. She and I both thought I had a fistula (not going to describe that here, other than to say its a major pain in the bum!). I was supposed to see my surgeon, but he referred me to a colon-rectal surgeon. I was able to get in this past Thurs., due to a cancellation. Im so glad I was able to get in to see an expert in my issues! Good news was, there is no fistula.

A branchial cleft cyst is a cyst in the skin of the lateral part of the neck. It can but does not necessarily have an opening to the skin surface called a fistula. The cause is usually a developmental abnormality arising in the early prenatal period, typically failure of obliteration of the second branchial cleft, i.e. failure of fusion of the second and third branchial arches. Less commonly, the cysts can develop from the first, third, or fourth clefts, and their location and the location of associated fistulas differs accordingly. Most branchial cleft cysts present as a smooth, slowly enlarging lateral neck mass that may increase in size after an upper respiratory tract infection. The fistulas, when present, are asymptomatic, but may become infected. Branchial cleft cysts are remnants of embryonic development and result from a failure of obliteration of one of the branchial clefts, which are homologous to the structures in fish that develop into gills. The cyst wall is composed of either ...

The researchers found that 98% of policies are inconsistent with the AGA ulcerative colitis pathway and require step-wise drug failure before approval of an anti-TNF. Only 11% of the policies allowed starting vedolizumab without initial failures of an anti-TNF agent, and 21% required the failure of 2 or more anti-TNF agents. The team noted that 90% of the policies are inconsistent with AGA Crohns disease pathway, and require step-wise drug failure before approval of an anti-TNF. The research team found that 74% allowed for initiating infliximab specifically for fistulizing Crohns disease. The team observed that 28% required failing of at least 2 or more drugs before starting anti-TNF. Only 8% of policies allowed starting vedolizumab without initial failures of an anti-TNF agent, and 28% required the failure of two anti-TNF agents.. Dr Feuersteins team concludes, "The majority of the policies reviewed fail to adhere to the current AGA pathway recommendations for ulcerative colitis and Crohns ...

Normally blood flow begins in the arteries and travels to the veins through the capillaries, whereas AV fistulas bypass the capillaries. This can result in reduced blood supply to the tissues. AV fistula can also be created surgically and used during dialysis for people with kidney failure. Dialysis requires access to the cardiovascular system and over half of the people who need it use AV fistulas, which creates a larger and tougher blood vessel that can tolerate multiple needle punctures needed for dialysis. AV fistula, whether created surgically or caused by disease or trauma, should be monitored carefully since it can lead to severe complications. ...

Hi glad theyre going to do something for you, the surgery basically involves laying open the fistula tract and cleaning it out, it is then packed with one of a various number of products that have different things added to promote healing aquacel is one example, the reason this is done is to let it heal from the inside out, as if it healed over at the skin you would be left with a cavity which could abscess. You will need the local nurse to change your dressings daily when you get home, other than that just try and keep it as clean as possible which with where it is can be challenging, is it above , below or to the side of your rectum? Above all good luck and keep us posted ...
Another month down and I am still in awe at home fast these little people learn....you quickly forget from baby 1 to baby 2. One big thing that happened since last month was he had surgery. We didnt post much about it because it involves what some would consider sensitive subject matter but as you know, we like to share our experience in hope of helping others going through the same thing. He had Hypospadias surgery which involved redirecting his urethra, which we discovered had a 90 degree curve and pointed downward instead of up. We traveled to St. Louis to have the surgery with specialist Dr. Palagiri at Mercy Childrens. The scariest part for me was the Caudal Block anesthesia, which is similar to an epidural. Well, we are a week and a half out from surgery and he is healing great! The first few days were rough and it involved dressing changes and soaks but by day 5, the dressing came off and he was practically back to his old self. We have to avoid any type of straddle toys until after our ...

Since writing my last post there has been a change of plans. While I was sitting thinking about all of the tests Carter was going to have to endure the next few weeks our surgeon was on the phone with another Doctor. The other Doctor informed him that the test may not give us the results we wanted to know. G.I. tests are not always accurate. With that being said I said "no." I do not want him going for any unnecessary tests. He has been through enough. I have decided it is time to fix the fistula and see what happens. Carter did not have any feeding intolerance problems before his initial surgery to add length to his bowel. So why does he now? The only changes he has had are the fistula, thats not suppose to be there, and the added length to his colon. So I think we should fix the fistula and see what happens. It has to be fixed anyways. In my mind there must be something going on with the fistula or added length of colon that is causing him to have the feeding intolerance issues. We are not ...

A total of 156 (115 males, 41 females) patients met inclusion criteria. Overall failure rate was 30% (13% from the authors institution and 87% from outside centers). Patients who failed their initial closure with osteotomy presented to the authors institution with a mean pubic diastasis of 4.8 ± 1.5 cm (range 2.7-12.3). Following re-closure, average diastasis was 2.1 ± 0.6 cm (range 1.0-3.4). Types of failure consisted of 12 (26.1%) bladder dehiscence, 11 (23.9%) bladder prolapse, 9 (19.6%) bladder outlet obstruction, 7 (15.2%) vesicocutaneous fistula, and 7 (15.2%) complex failures. Failure rates were significantly higher for patients closed during 1990-2000 when compared to subsequent years (38.8% vs. 23.2%, p = 0.032). On multivariate analysis, use of Bucks traction (OR 0.11; 95% CI 0.02-0.60, p = 0.011) and immobilization time greater than 4 weeks (OR 0.19; 95% CI 0.04-0.86, p=0.031) had significantly lower odds of failure.

A retrospective analysis was performed on patients subjected to near-total laryngectomy at Aga Khan University Hospital Karachi from September 2006 and May 2010, to evaluate the functional outcome of Near Total Laryngectomy and its effect on disease control. In all of these advanced stage laryngeal-hypopharyngeal squamous cancer patients, the disease was limited to one side of the larynx-hypopharynx. Four patients were staged as T3 and rest were T4; near total laryngectomy was done in all 07 patients. Post operative adjuvant radiotherapy was given to 06 patients. All of these patients are on regular oral diet and maintaining their body weight. Six patients are using their preserved hemi larynx effectively. Mean follow up of these patients was 15 months. Three patients developed regional recurrence whereas the remaining four patients were well till their last follow-up. Near total laryngectomy is a safe surgical option even for advanced laryngeal-hypopharyngeal cancer without compromising oncological
MUSIC PLAYING] GIUSEPPE LANZINO: Dural fistulas are uncommon lesions, but it is very important for physicians to be aware of these possibilities because, quite often, patients can present with symptoms that might mimic more common conditions and may be misdiagnosed for a long period of time unless the possibility of a dural fistula is entertained early on in the course. A dural AV fistula is an abnormal communication between an artery and a vein, and they can occur both in the brain or in and around the spinal cord. The most common type of fistula is the so-called transverse sigmoid sinus fistula, and these patients often present with a bruit. Typically, if there is a fistula, a bruit can be also heard with a stethoscope, right in the mastoid area. And thats a fairly reliable sign. There are other fistulas located in the region of the cavernous sinus. They can present with ocular symptoms, paralysis of eye movement, decreased vision, redness of the eye and the conjunctiva. Its very common for ...
The diagnosis of a thyroglossal duct cyst is often apparent when it presents with typical findings. We report a case of a 6 year-old girl with a low-lying thyroglossal duct cyst presenting with recurrent lateral cervical discharge without palpable mass, thus mimicking a second branchial cleft fistula. CT scan differentiated the lesion from a second branchial cleft fistula, and a standard Sistrunk procedure cured the lesion. In patients who show lateral cervical discharge without definite mass, therefore mimicking a second branchial cleft fistula, a low-lying thyroglossal duct cyst should be considered.
