Özet

Oxidized regenerated cellulose (Surgicel((R))) is a commonly used material in Pediatric Surgery. We present a case of recurrent tracheoesophageal fistula (RTEF) repaired by Surgicele((R)). In this case, tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) recurred due to migration of Surgicel into the tracheal and esophageal lumen. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
