Quote from one article :
A 55 year old man had a history of persistent cough since childhood. Throughout his adult life he had recurrent bouts of bronchitis. He also noticed that he often coughed or choked after swallowing liquids. He had right side pneumonia just 3 weeks before admission. A chest X-ray showed a middle lobe consolidation. Examination with a flexible bronchoscope showed a fistula in the posterior wall of the trachea at its midpoint. Barium swallow did not identify the fistula. Oesophagoscopy showed the entry point to lie 20 cm from the incisors. This fistula was clearly seen on the subsequent computed tomographic scan which was performed to assess parenchymal damage.
Post-operably he did well and at follow up 6 months later he remained symptom free.
I am taking this and other information with me as there is a chance my TOF could be sorted out.
