    Tracheal neoplasms account for less than 1% of all malignancies. In spite of their low incidence, these tumors represent potentially lethal phenomena. In cases of airway compromise and unresectable disease, the airway may be maintained by repeated bronchoscopic debulkings, and the use of CO...

    Both the fibreoptic bronchoscope and the gum-elastic bougie are widely used in the management of a difficult airway [_1,_,2_]. To our knowledge there are no published reports of using these airway tools in combination to change a nasotracheal tube to an orotracheal tube. We report a technique...

    There are multiple causes of endobronchial lesions. Endobronchial foreign bodies may be mistaken as endobronchial tumours in adults and the diagnosis may be delayed. We hereby present the case of an 89 year-old man with an endobronchial lesion obliterating the right lower lobe bronchus. By...

    Oesophago-respiratory fistulas are a life-threatening complication that can occur not only from lung or oesophageal malignancies but also from non-malignant causes. The treatment of oesophago-respiratory fistulas that present with an increase in the secretion amount, expectoration of the meals,...
