Cardiocutaneous fistula. (1/459)

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)

Aorto-right ventricular fistula: a late complication of aortic valve replacement. (2/459)

We report the case of a patient who was found to have an aorto-right ventricular fistula 17 years after receiving a Bjork-Shiley prosthetic aortic valve. A pseudoaneurysm had formed at the aortotomy suture line, and it had extended into the interventricular septum and had eventually opened into the right ventricle. Using transesophageal echocardiography, we identified the defect in the ascending aorta, and a left-to-right shunt. Aortography was used to confirm these findings. The pseudoaneurysm was successfully resected and the ascending aorta was replaced with a Dacron graft. To the best of our knowledge, no similar late complication of aortic valve replacement has been reported in the medical literature.  (+info)

Review article: the efficacy of infliximab in Crohn's disease--healing of fistulae. (3/459)

In the management of fistulae, the current therapeutic approach is the use of a combination of antibiotics and/or a combination of immunomodulatory agents. However, clinicians treating patients with fistulae, particularly those with fistulizing Crohn's disease, have little data from controlled clinical trials of these pharmacologic agents or regimens to substantiate their use in treating this complication. Therapy with the anti-tumour necrosis factor-alpha antibody, infliximab, has shown promise in treating patients with Crohn's disease and those with the disease complicated by fistulae. A recent clinical trial was designed specifically to evaluate infliximab in the treatment of fistulizing Crohn's disease. Study results demonstrated infliximab to be the first therapeutic agent to show statistical efficacy in fistulae closure in a placebo-controlled trial. Therapy with the chimeric monoclonal antibody was characterized by a rapid onset of closure and a lasting benefit of action. Two patient cases from the clinical trial are presented to exemplify the dramatic effectiveness of this novel therapeutic approach in modulating the immune response of patients with this debilitating complication of Crohn's disease.  (+info)

Possibilities of preventing osteoradionecrosis during complex therapy of tumors of the oral cavity. (5/459)

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. (7/459)

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. (8/459)

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)

Blood flow between the aorta and atrium is a rare but complex pathological condition, also known as aorto-atrial fistula (AAF). The exact incidence of this condition is unknown, as are the major precipitating factors and best treatment options. We carried out a systematic review of the available case report literature reporting AAF. We systematically reviewed literature on AAF formation and closure. Separate Medline (PubMed), EMBASE, and Cochrane database queries were performed. The following MESH headings were used: atrium, ventricle, fistula, cardiac, shunts, aortic, aorto-atrial tunnels and coronary cameral fistula. All papers were considered for analysis irrespective of their quality, or the journal in which they were published. Fistula formation from the ascending aorta to the atria occurred more often in the right atrium compared to the left. Endocarditis was the major cause of AAF formation, whilst congenital causes were responsible for nearly 12%. In a number of cases fistula formation ...
AIM. To assess the functionality of congenital coronary artery fistulas (CAFs) using adenosine stress N-13-ammonia positron emission tomography computed tomography (PET-CT).. METHODS. Congenital CAFs were incidentally detected during coronary angiography (CAG) procedures in 11 adult patients (six males and five females) with a mean age of 64.3 years (range 41-81). Patients were collected from three institutes in the Netherlands. The characteristics of the fistulas (origin, pathway and termination), multiplicity of the origins and pathways of the fistulous vessels were assessed by CAG. Five patients underwent adenosine pharmacologic stress N-13-ammonia PET-CT to assess myocardial perfusion and the functional behavior of the fistula.. RESULTS. Eleven patients with 12 CAFs, 10 unilateral and one bilateral, originating from the left anterior descending coronary artery (n = 8), right coronary artery (n = 2) and circumflex (n = 2). All fistulas were of the vascular type, terminating into either the ...
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Congenital coronary artery fistula (CAF) is an uncommon anomaly. It can become symptomatic, associated with significant morbidity and mortality. We report our experience in percutaneous treatment of CAF. METHODS AND RESULTS Four patients with five CAFs were treated. All were symptomatic at admission. Four fistulas rose from the left anterior descending coronary artery. The fifth originated from the right coronary sinus. All drained into the pulmonary artery. Percutaneous treatment was performed using microcoils in two cases and Hydrocoils in the last two patients (three fistulas). A complete occlusion was achieved in all. There was no complication related with the procedure, and all were asymptomatic at the follow-up. CONCLUSIONS Transcatheter closure of CAFs with microcoils/Hydrocoils is feasible and safe in the anatomically suitable vessels, with low rates of complications. Percutaneous treatment with microcoils/Hydrocoils is a valid option in symptomatic patients.
A case of right coronary to left ventricular fistula was diagnosed by cross sectional and Doppler echocardiography. The origin and site of entry into the left ventricle of the enlarged right coronary artery were shown by cross sectional echocardiography. Diastolic flow was detected in the left ventricle by both pulsed and continuous Doppler echocardiography. The fistula was confirmed by cardiac catheterisation and was successfully closed at operation. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Right pulmonary artery to left atrial fistula in a neonate: case report and review of the literature. AU - Mongé, M. C.. AU - Russell, H. M.. AU - Popescu, A. M.. AU - Robinson, J. D.. PY - 2014/4. Y1 - 2014/4. N2 - A communication between the right pulmonary artery (RPA) and the left atrium is a rare congenital anomaly that presents with cyanosis and heart failure. We describe the surgical repair of an RPA to left atrial fistula using cardiopulmonary bypass in a neonate. Advanced imaging (computed tomography scan) guided the surgical approach. Although previous reports have associated a patent ductus arteriosus with high neonatal mortality, in our case, the ductus arteriosus was actually important for maintaining enough total pulmonary blood flow..

Depending on the location of the holes and their number, fistulas of the rectum are complete and incomplete. Complete fistulas are characterized by the fact that their inlet is located within the walls of the rectum, while the outlet hole is located on the skin in the perineal region, with close proximity to the anus. It is often enough to note the presence of several entrance openings for this form of fistula, they are located directly on the wall of the intestine, merging subsequently into a single channel at the depth of the pararectal tissue. The outlet hole, in this case, is formed on the skin. Only in half of the cases of the appearance of complete fistulas the fistulous passages are rectilinear, due to which the penetration into the rectum is relatively easy with the use of a special probe as a diagnostic manipulation. In other cases, such fistulas are curved and sinuous, which practically excludes the possibility of penetration to their inner orifice. Presumably, the inner fistula ...
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. The gastrointestinal tract (particularly the duodenum), pancreas, bladder, and female genital tract are particularly susceptible. Among the many places in the body where fistulas can occur are: ...

Multiple coronary artery fistulae arising from all 3 major coronary arteries emptying into the LV are extremely rare. There are case reports and small series that have demonstrated inducible ischemia on myocardial nuclear studies.1 There are no reports that demonstrate the subendocardial nature of inducible ischemia as observed in this case by cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging. It is commonly believed that the perfusion defect corresponds to the region of myocardium that is bypassed by the intramyocardial fistulae. Adenosine-induced hyperemia decreases the diastolic perfusion gradient, increasing shunting by the fistulae and hence causing a coronary steal phenomenon. This steal phenomenon explains the clinical finding that sublingual nitrates exacerbate ischemic symptoms. In the present case, symptoms were abolished by β-blockade.. ...

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 ...

Long-term use of an arteriovenous (AV) fistula for dialysis requires the ability of the dialysis staff to cannulate the fistula with large-bore needles three times a week. One complication of unsuccessful fistula cannulation is a needle infiltration, resulting in development of a subcutaneous hematoma, and precluding fistula use until resolution of the hematoma. Needle infiltrations of fistulas may result in the temporary inability to use the fistula for dialysis and may lead to fistula thrombosis, necessitating tunneled catheter use for maintenance hemodialysis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the risk factors for fistula infiltrations, and the clinical consequences arising from this complication. Using a prospective, computerized vascular access database, we identified all hemodialysis patients who suffered a fistula infiltration during a 5-year period (1/1/00-12/31/04) severe enough to require a follow-up diagnostic test, surgery appointment, or an intervention. This patient group ...

In practice fistula surgery leads to radical excision & large wounds at anal and perianal region which leaves patient in severe post operative pain and pain during dressings. These procedures are associated with of deformities due to excision of tissue and scaring. Patient requires long hospitalization for 6 - 8 days or longer. Dressing is required for long time 4- 6 weeks / months. In spite of all these agonizing problems there is high risk of recurrence and incontinence. The Minimum Invasive endoscopy surgery for fistula depends on skill of fistuloscopy which has very short learning curve. The procedure requires one day hospitalization, no radical excision of tissue, no potential danger of incontinence, no painful dressings and heals in short duration. A new procedure had minimum of 2 years follow up, had proved its efficacy. It had 91 % success rate in difficult problems like high, long, complex recurrent, horse shoe fistula.

I had an anal abscess that turned into a fistula (or the other way around?) about two years after takedown. They put a seton in, and I lived with that for a couple of years. My surgeon was worried about it being Crohns. After no more fistulas, he agreed to operate and laid the fistula open. That was last winter. It has healed well. My control may be slightly less than it was, but is still good.

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?

TY - JOUR. T1 - Atrioesophageal Fistula. T2 - Considerations for the neurological clinician. AU - Zima, Laura A.. AU - Fornoff, Linden E.. AU - Surdell, Daniel L.. PY - 2018/7. Y1 - 2018/7. N2 - Atrioesophageal fistula (AEF) is a rare complication of cardiac ablation for atrial fibrillation. It can present in many ways, but neurological signs and symptoms are common initial signs sometimes resulting in neurosurgeons and neurologists first evaluating patients with the condition. We present a case report of at 68-year-old female who presented with acute stroke symptoms and multifocal hemorrhages on MRI who was worked up through our neurosurgery department and diagnosed with AEF. This case highlights three clues to alert neurological clinicians to AEF as a possible diagnosis; clinical worsening of neurological symptoms in correlation to episodes of emesis, septic emboli on CT/MRI, and bacteremia caused by a gram positive oral or GI flora. If neurological clinicians encounter these red flags, an ...

it seems you have perianal crohns. You should try to get this cleared up because it can get worse. That means doing all mentioned such as getting the remicade as soon as possible. If its infected you might also need a antibiotic. Take sitz bath every few hours. The small intestine issue could be contributing manifesting itself downward to the rectum, or it could be a bacteria clogging things there. You should get a surgeon to look at the fistula, asap and find out whatever they want to do to heal it. Another post had something about using a foam product. Try everything... even if you need to ask it to be stitched. Many times its been said not to mess with it surgically so you definetl need advice from someone who actually closed there fistula without further problems and the only drug I know of is remicade which might give you a chance to save the rectum area. Strongly suggest start remicade now infection or not, as well as all the above continuously ...

I was in labour for five days. When I reached the hospital I was told by a nurse not to push, the nurse never came back and there was no one in the hospital to help. In the end I had to push on my own but my baby was stillborn.. I realised straight away something was wrong because when I went to the ward I was wet. I was confused and couldnt understand what was wrong. I spent a lot of money trying to treat myself but I was wet for five years. I felt like committing suicide.. I heard an advert for the fistula camp at Kitovu on the radio. After I was cured I felt like giving everything to the nurses because I felt so good.

We report a case of 70-year-old woman who had bilateral coronary arteriovenous fistula(CAVF) and treated with percutaneous transcatheter coil embolization. Enlarged LV and reduced global LV systolic function were demonstrated on transthoracic echocardiography. Coronary angiography revealed a large coronary arteriovenous fistula from the right coronary artery to the main pulmonary artery and a small fistula from the left coronary artery to the main pulmonary artery. Percutaneous transcatheter coil embolization for CAVF from the right coronary artery to the main pulmonary artery was successfully performed with symptomatic improvement. ...
Vesicouterine fistulas are generally triggered by: obstetrical causes, surgery, radiotherapy, intravaginal or intravesical foreign bodies. We report the clinical case of a patient who, subsequent to Caesarean section, developed vesicouterine fistula and endometriosis of the vesicouterine ligament. Vesicouterine fistulas are rare pathologies but rarest are genito-urinary fistulas, which are generally complications of Caesarean section. Patients with vesicouterine fistulas present urinary incontinence in the postoperative period but even years later may present cyclic hematuria, amenorrhea, vaginal losses of urine, infections of the urinary ways and secondary infertility. Fistulas may determine urological damage with impairment of vesical function; damage to the reproductive organs with impaired patient fertility; the onset of endometriosis in the vesicouterine ligament affecting the relational sphere and sexual relations.. ...
Coronary artery fistulae (CAF) are rare anomalies. They are vascular communications between the coronary arteries and other cardiac structures, either cardiac chambers or great vessels. There can be considerable variation in the course of a coronary artery fistula. We report a case of a coronary artery fistula between the left circumflex coronary artery and the right and left atria. CAF are often diagnosed by coronary angiogram, however with the advent of new technologies such as Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography (Coronary CTA) the course and communications of these fistulae can be delineated non-invasively and with greater accuracy.
Coronary artery fistulas are rare congenital or acquired coronary artery anomalies that can originate from any of the three major coronary arteries & drain in all the cardiac chambers & great vessels. A combination like the one described in the present case, patient presented with myocardial infarction, is unusual since fistulas originate from left coronary artery in about 35% cases & drain into the pulmonary artery occurs in only 17%.

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 ...

The LAD fistula to the MPA was ligated after constructing the left internal mammary artery to the LAD graft. However, the RCA fistula was left alone due to its unfavorable location for exposure or ligation, and postoperative transcatheter embolization was planned.. Although various imaging modalities have been used, intraoperative 2D TEE has been used for diagnosis and evaluation of coronary artery fistulae.1-3 However, the limitations of 2D TEE make angiography the preferred method of visualizing this pathology.4 Manipulating the TEE probe to acquire appropriate 2D images and interpreting the images accurately are challenging in complex fistula pathology. Even under favorable conditions, greater effort may be required to obtain and combine multiple 2D images. The X-plane mode may partly overcome the limitation of 2D TEE imaging; it instantaneously produces an additional 2D image and multiplane angle, and angulation of the additional image to the original can be changed by adjusting knob and ...
Non-penetrating chest trauma commonly causes a wide variety of cardiac injuries. Disruption of the aortic valve with resultant aortic regurgitation is not uncommon; conversely, a sinus of Valsalva-right atrial fistula, in the absence of a congenital sinus of Valsalva aneurysm, has been reported only once previously. This report describes the detection by preoperative cardiac catheterisation of both aortic regurgitation, and a sinus of Valsalva-right atrial fistula after blunt chest trauma, and its surgical management. The need for preoperative cardiac catheterisation in patients suffering from non-penetrating cardiac trauma is emphasised, even when the diagnosis appears cleas, because of the diverse nature and possible multiplicity of cardiac lesions. ...
Treatment for fistula varies depending on the cause and extent of the fistula, but often involves surgical intervention combined with antibiotic therapy. Typically the first step in treating a fistula is an examination by a doctor to determine the extent and path that the fistula takes through the tissue. In some cases the fistula is temporarily covered, for example a fistula caused by cleft palate is often treated with a palatal obturator to delay the need for surgery to a more appropriate age. Surgery is often required to assure adequate drainage of the fistula (so that pus may escape without forming an abscess). Various surgical procedures are commonly used, most commonly fistulotomy, placement of a seton (a cord that is passed through the path of the fistula to keep it open for draining), or an endorectal flap procedure (where healthy tissue is pulled over the internal side of the fistula to keep feces or other material from reinfecting the channel). Treatment involves filling the fistula ...
We report the case of a 54-year-old man, waitlisted for lung transplantation with a diagnosis of end-stage diffuse bronchiectasis. On arrival at the catheterization laboratory for coronary angiography prior to transplantation, the patient developed a hypertensive crisis (BP 200/110mmHg), at which stage he reported habitually uncontrolled blood pressure. Coronary angiography revealed coronary arteries free of lesions and a coronary artery fistula emerging from the left common trunk (LCT), 3mm in caliber at the proximal end and 2mm at the most distal end (Video 1, Appendix), with drainage to the left pulmonary artery, causing hemodynamic alterations in the form of high cardiac output (thermodilution 7.86l/min). Increased pulmonary pressures (mPAP 71mmHg, PVR 5.5 Wood units [WU]) associated with pulmonary hyperflow and significant diastolic dysfunction due to hypertensive heart disease evidenced in the rest of the study data (mean PCP 35mmHg and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure [LVEDP] ...

Press Release issued Jan 3, 2018: Arteriovenous Fistula is a disruption of blood flow due to abnormal connection between a vein and artery. In condition of arteriovenous fistula, the blood flows directly from arteries to the vein, bypassing capillaries. Thus, capillary tissues receive less oxygen supply (i.e. blood supply) and increase the risk of blood pressure problem. Arteriovenous fistula can be congenital or acquired. Congenital fistula is formed during fatal development and majorly affects lower extremities of blood vessels.
It is estimated that about 200 fistula patients will be enrolled into the database every year. The study is expected to last a minimum of 5 years, for a total enrollment of 1250 patients.. Current Procedures For more than a year, the Freedom to Fight Fistula Foundation (FFFF) has sponsored a fistula repair program at Bwaila that has consisted of visiting fistula surgeons coming for short periods of time to conduct repairs. Since September 2011, a full time fistula surgeon has been on site at Bwaila hospital.. Referral to the FFFF at Bwaila occurs primarily via word-of-mouth, as currently demand highly exceeds capacity. As of now, there is a waiting list of approximately 50 fistula patients. Occasionally, the foundation makes visits to health centers to give educational presentations on obstetric fistulas, and distributes flyers advertising its services in the local community. Once the presence of a regular surgeon is established, and the waiting list is diminished, the foundation anticipates ...
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 ...

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 ...

Echocardiography is the primary modality for imaging the aorta for the diagnosis and serial evaluation of pathological conditions. In this article, we review the methodology for optimal echocardiographic imaging of the various segments of the aorta and discuss abnormalities of the aorta including stenosis, dilation including aortopathy and sinus of Valsalva aneurysms, and fistulous communications involving the ascending aorta including aortoventricular tunnel and ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm. We review novel echocardiographic measurements of aortic functional properties of the aorta such as elasticity and stiffness, and review the literature on the potential additive value of such measurements for structural assessment alone. Finally, we discuss the limitations of echocardiography in the precise and optimal imaging of the aorta.
