1/6. Surgical management of acquired laryngopharyngeal fistulae.

    Pathological communication between the food and air passages in the neck region due to malignant disease is known. However, such a pathology arising as a result of a non malignant process is relatively uncommon, and only a handful of reports exists in the literature. The authors describe and discuss the management of two patients with laryngopharyngeal fistula of nonmalignant etiology.

2/6. Communicating bronchopulmonary pancreatic foregut malformation.

    Bronchopulmonary foregut malformations include intralobar and extralobar pulmonary sequestrations, bronchogenic cysts, and communicating bronchopulmonary foregut malformations (CBPFM). These malformations, formes frustes, originate as developmental abnormalities of ventral foregut budding of the tracheobronchial tree or the gastrointestinal tract. The communication's patency with the parent viscus determines if a contained malformation occurs, or if an abnormal communication persists as a CBPFM. This case demonstrates a unique example of a CBPFM in which the main pancreatic duct communicated with pulmonary parenchyma through a retroperitoneal fistula.

3/6. Video-assisted thoracoscopic treatment for pleuroperitoneal communication in peritoneal dialysis.

    Massive hydrothorax is an uncommon but well-recognized complication of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). We performed a video-assisted thoracoscopic resection of the pleuro-peritoneal communication and pleurodesis in a patient with massive right hydrothorax secondary to CAPD. Histologically, the resected diaphragm was lacking in common tissue, tendons and skeletal muscle tissues, is displaced to fibrous connective tissue. These anatomic findings suggested that the cause of communication was congenital diaphragmatic change. Video-assisted thoracoscopic treatment facilitated efficient inspection and easy resection of the weak portion of the diaphragma in the case of pleuroperitoneal communication.

4/6. Delayed closure of persistent postpneumonectomy bronchopleural fistula.

    A 73-year-old man with a history of postpneumonectomy empyema and a long-term chest tube since 1979 presented with fever, chills, leukocytosis, and purulent fluid from the left tube thoracostomy. CT scan and bronchoscopy demonstrated a right lower lobe pneumonia and a left mainstem dehiscence with direct communication to the left tube thoracostomy. He underwent primary closure of the bronchopleural fistula with latissimus dorsi muscle flap coverage after antibiotic therapy for right lower lobe pneumonia.

5/6. Fecopneumothorax and colopleural fistula - uncommon complications of Crohn's disease.

    BACKGROUND: Colopleural fistula and fecopneumothorax are very rare complications of Crohn's disease. fistula formation is frequent in Crohn's disease and occurs in approximately 33% of patients. On the other hand, fistulous communication between the pleural cavity and adjacent organs below the diaphragm is extremely rare. CASE PRESENTATION: We describe the case of 27 year-old female with colopleural fistula as a complication of Crohn's disease. The diagnosis was established with clinical exam, barium enema, chest X-ray, abdominal and chest CT exam. The treatment was surgical. CONCLUSION: Colopleural fistula and fecopneumothorax are rare but life treating complications of Crohn's disease. Surgical treatment is mandatory as soon as the diagnosis is established.

6/6. Oronasal communication caused by a denture with suction cup: a case report.

    suction cups, which provide high retention, are not being recommended anymore because of the destructive effect of the negative pressure on the palatal tissues. It is known that dentures with suction cups can cause perforations in the palate. In this case report, an oronasal communication caused by a denture with suction cup in a patient who had previously undergone pleomorphic adenoma excision of the palate is presented. Disadvantages of suction cups are emphasized.
