In case of a strong assumption of an H-type fistula, besides all standard diagnostic work-up tools a more aggressive combined approach is advisable. However, in a critically ill premature infant, conventional invasive investigations could not be performed as being potentially hazardous and not always easy to achieve. We describe the unique imaging features of an H-type TEF… CONTINUE READING
