Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

The authors present the case of a 3-year-old girl with a history of complicated surgery for removing a third branchial cleft fistula.

METHODS:

An endoscopic approach using N-butyl-2-acrylate and metacrilosisolfolane glue (GLUBRAN 2) to seal the fistula was performed.

RESULTS:

The clinical and radiological 6-year follow-up confirmed the absence of the fistulous orifice and the persistence of scar due to previous open-neck surgical procedures.

CONCLUSION:

endoscopic Glubran 2 sealing has been an effective treatment procedure for branchial fistula.

KEYWORDS:

Branchial abnormalities; endoscopic cauterization; pyriform sinus fistula; recurrent fistula; third branchial anomalies
