57 year old Kosovar Hatixhe Gashi presented to Medicana Çamlıca Hospital with a 4-cm defect between the trachea and the esophagus, and she recovered her health following a successful operation carried out at the hospital.

Assistant. Prof. Cüneyt Aydemir, M.D., the Deputy Chief Doctor of Medicana Çamlıca Hospital and the Thoracic Surgeon, stated that the 4-cm defect between the trachea and the esophagus is regarded as a major defect from medical perspective and that she was regarded as inoperable at home country. When she presented to the hospital, she was fed by a tube placed in the stomach for approximately 10 weeks and she lost approximately 20 kg, added Dr. Aydemir: “In bronchoscopy, a very large defect (4 cm) was found between the trachea and the esophagus and the esophagus herniated through the defect into the trachea, as esopahagus is soft in nature.”

The jaw is stitched to the chest

Dr. Aydemir stated that the patient was first prepared for the operation at Medicana Çamlıca Hospital, and he added: “First, the patient was prepared for the surgery; blood test parameters are managed and the nutrition is planned. Next, the patient is operated on and the defective site of the trachea is removed. We need to remove 3 tracheal rings in order to repair the hole that measured 4 cm in diameter. Next, two ends of the divided trachea were stitched to each other and we checked the air leakage, and finally, the esophagus was repaired. After the surgery was carried out, the jaw of the patient was stitched to the chest and thus, maximum attention was paid to avoid the dehiscence at surgery site. The patient was thus supervised approximately for 1 week. Next, jaw stitches are removed and the patient is gradually started on liquid foods. Now, the patient can eat whatever she wants without need to fear, breath easily and talk to her spouse.”
