22, diagnosed with acute kidney injury secondary to interstitial nephritis (an inflammation of the tissue fluid between kidney tubules) and tracheo-esophageal fistula (an abnormal connection between the trachea and the esophagus).
The tracheo-esophageal fistula was resected and closed using interrupted Prolene 5/0 sutures.
Among the internal anomalies, most common is congenital heart disease (22 cases) followed by tracheo-esophageal fistula (2 cases), renal anomaly occurs.
The patient may have other associated anomalies9 which include cleft lip and/or palate, abnormal ears, hydrocephalus, cranial/spinal malformations, microphthalmus, congenital heart disease, tracheo-esophageal fistula, omphalocele, anorectal malformation, renal malformation (agenesis, polycystic kidneys), duplication of cervix or uterus, vascular anomalies, nail aplasia or dysplasia, digital anomalies, simian creases, Goltz syndrome (focal dermal hypoplasia), trisomy 13, intestinal lymphangiectasia and pyloric atresia.
Given the radiological findings and unsuccessful attempts to eliminate the air leak, it was determined that the most likely explanation was the presence of a tracheo-esophageal fistula (TEF) FOB was planned again.
Genetic factors in esophageal atresia, tracheo-esophageal fistula and the VACTERL association: Roles for FOXF1 and the 16q24.
We would like to clarify that the term Vater sequence is currently not appropriate and it has been replaced by the term VACTERL association from the acronym vertebral defects, anal atresia, cardiac defects, tracheo-esophageal fistula, renal malformations, and limb defects (4).
Irregularities negatively linked to clefts were congenital heart defects, spina bifida, and VATER complex (vertebral defects, imperforate anus, tracheo-esophageal fistula, and radial and renal dysplasia).
Nina was born at 31 weeks gestation and was diagnosed with Trisomy 21; patent ductus arteriosis, repaired in the first month of life; tracheo-esophageal fistula, which was repaired at 2 months of age; AV Canal; cleft palate, unrepaired; and gastroesophageal reflux with a Nissen fundoplication and gastric tube placed in the first month of life.
After 10 days of broad-spectrum antibiotics and with progressing infiltrates, a computed tomography scan of the chest revealed a right lung abscess, a tracheo-esophageal fistula, and a right pleural effusion.
