TIAB (Title and Abstract)
Structural deterioration in Celestin tubes.
Two cases are described where, after 2 years, a nylon-latex Celestin tube which was left in situ to bypass a benign stricture underwent structural deterioration and produced complications requiring tube replacement. It is recommended that an alternative endo-oesophageal tube should be considered where a lifespan of this order is contemplated.
