Monitoring regional cerebral oxygen saturation (rSO2) by use of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is a useful method for detecting cerebral ischemia. Tracheo-innominate artery fistula is a rare but life-threatening complication of tracheostomy. The surgical procedures for management of tracheo-innominate artery fistula include direct or patch closure of the fistula, ligation or division of the innominate artery, and anatomical or extra-anatomical reconstruction of the flow of the innominate… CONTINUE READING
