Replacement of a failed tracheoesophageal puncture prosthesis under direct vision. (Esophagoscopy Clinic).
Transnasal esophagoscopy (TNE) identified the poorly placed prosthesis buried within some edematous esophageal mucosa (figure, A). The prosthesis was removed and the gelcap of a new in-dwelling catheter was placed under direct vision (figure, B). Examination after the gelcap had dissolved revealed that the inner flange of the in-dwelling TEP prosthesis was in excellent position (figure, C).
