Recent technological advances within aeronautical engineering have demonstrated the delivery of objective quantitative endoscopic measurements to within one-hundredth of a millimeter. We sought to validate this emerging laser technology in a simulation-based assessment of pediatric airway stenosis. A 4.4-mm flexible endoscope, incorporating a laser measurement system projecting 49 laser points into the endoscopic view, was used to assess a simulated model of subglottic stenosis. Multiple anterop...

Abstract Background Slide tracheoplasty (STP) is the procedure of choice for treatment of long segmental congenital tracheal stenosis (LSCTS). Few studies predict factors leading to re-intervention or mortality after STP. We analyzed our paediatric population to identify such factors and compared the outcome between two eras (1995-2012 and 2013-2017) Methods We analyzed 150 consecutive children who underwent STP from Feb 1995 to Dec 2017 in our hospital. Results Median age and weight were 6.9 mo...

AIM Differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) in children and adolescents is rare and data about its presentation and management are not well known. The aim of this study was to provide evidence of the current practice in the United Kingdom before the launch of the Rare National Paediatric Endocrine Tumours Guidelines (to be published in 2020). METHODS Seventy-two children and adolescents with DTC (<18 years) who were treated at our institution between 2003 and 2018 were identified and their presentat...

Abstract Background Pulmonary artery sling (PAS) is usually associated with long segment congenital tracheal stenosis (LSCTS). This combination of abnormalities can also be associated with lung hypoplasia abnormalities (hypoplasia, aplasia or agenesis). The objectives of this study are to analyze the association of lung hypoplasia abnormalities with combined PAS and LSCTS and its influence on its surgical outcomes. Methods All patients (0 to 18 years) who underwent surgical procedures for both P...

Abstract Background Long segment congenital tracheal stenosis (LSCTS) is a rare, complex condition which is often poorly understood by community-based health professionals (HPs). Anecdotally, such HPs often lack confidence providing care for children, resulting in children being brought to the tertiary centre more frequently than necessary. We wanted to identify the information and support needs of HPs in primary and secondary care looking after a child with LSCTS, the views of those providing e...

A persistent craniopharyngeal canal (PCC) is a rare but treatable anatomical abnormality that causes recurrent meningitis and should be considered as a differential diagnosis. We report a case of an 8-year-old boy who presented with recurrent meningitis associated to his PCC. Surgical repair was performed, and no further episodes occurred.

A previously fit and well 3-month-old baby was admitted to his local hospital with worsening stridor following a 2-week history of croup-like symptoms. Chest radiograph shows a large area of mediastinal and bilateral upper-zone opacification ([figure 1][1]). Due to concerns of progressive airway
