"It's one of the most painful ..., 3 Mar 2006 [cached]
"It's one of the most painful incisions that can be made on the body," according to Dr. Tamir Keshen, a board certified general and pediatric surgeon at Cottage Children's Hospital.
Fortunately, for both Mika and her parents, Dr. Keshen had just recently moved to Santa Barbara and joined Cottage's medical staff , bringing to the area his unique experience in repairing this type of fistula using a less traumatic approach.
"The procedure has potential for a good outcome with minimal trauma. And if the fistula recurs, an operation can be performed later on if needed," explains Dr. Keshen. His technique to obliterate the connection between the esophagus and trachea involved using a brush to "rough up" the surface of the fistula's lining. The abrasion would cause inflammation and speed up the collapse of the fistula, he said. Dr. Keshen also plugged the passage with a biomaterial.
Unlike major surgery which can take hours, Dr. Keshen completed the procedure in 45 minutes. And rather than a week's recovery time in the hospital with no solid foods, Mika was able to go home after one day of observation. She was able to drink fluids that same night, and resumed normal eating within two days.
"Our children are the most precious gifts in the world to us," said Gil and Ella. "We are so grateful to Dr. Keshen for allowing us to continue to enjoy Mika for many years to come."
