Subglottic granuloma after aortic replacement: resection via flexible bronchoscopy after an emergency tracheostomy.

Nose N, So T, Sekimura A, Miyata T, Yoshimatsu T - J Surg Case Rep (2014)

Bottom Line: On POD 50, he was brought to our hospital by an ambulance with severe dyspnea.After an emergency tracheostomy, resection of the granuloma with argon plasma coagulation via flexible bronchoscopy was performed safely.Resection via flexible bronchoscopy after tracheostomy is a safe and feasible procedure that may shorten the duration of therapy and hospital stay.

The intraoperative findings: the tumor (arrow 1) was resected by the abrasion of its pedicle, which arose from the tracheal membranous wall (arrow 2). The tracheostomy tube (arrow 3) prevented the tumor from falling into the distal airway.

RJU088F3: The intraoperative findings: the tumor (arrow 1) was resected by the abrasion of its pedicle, which arose from the tracheal membranous wall (arrow 2). The tracheostomy tube (arrow 3) prevented the tumor from falling into the distal airway.

Mentions: The operation was performed with general anesthesia via the tracheostomy tube. The tumor was cauterized with an argon beam coagulator (ERBE VIO-S/APC®) via the bronchoscope, which was inserted from a bite block in his mouth. During the abrasion process, we found that the tumor had a pedicle which could not have been identified by preoperative computed tomography or bronchoscopy. The tumor was resected easily with abrasion of the pedicle. The tracheostomy tube prevented the resected tumor from falling into the distal airway (Fig. 3). Little bleeding was experienced. The total length of the operation was 20 min.Figure 3:
