Esophageal bronchi are a rare form of communicating bronchopulmonary foregut malformations (CBPFM) that can be seen in association with esophageal atresia.

Esophageal bronchi are rare but important causes of an opaque hemithorax on chest radiograph. This is especially pertinent in the setting of esophageal atresia (EA) and tracheo-esophageal fistula (TEF) and VACTERL (vertebral defects, anal atresia, cardiac defects, tracheo-esophageal fistula, renal anomalies, and limb abnormalities) anomalies as these conditions are associated with a higher incidence of esophageal bronchi.

The purpose of this case report series is describe the pertinent radiological features in four patients with esophageal bronchi.

Midgut malrotation can lead to significant morbidity and even mortality if complicated by volvulus or obstruction related to Ladd bands. At our institution, it is routine practice to perform fluoroscopic upper gastrointestinal (UGI) exams to assess for intestinal malrotation prior to gastrostomy tube placement. We sought to determine if it is feasible to assess midgut rotation using any previous MRI exams that include the upper abdomen. We hope to remove the need for upper GI exams in patients with previous MRI exams, thus preventing unnecessary radiation exposure and overutilization of resources, prior to gastrostomy tube placement.

Upper gastrointestinal studies are used for the diagnosis of intestinal malrotation, and the configuration of the duodenum and position of the DJ flexure are used for diagnosis. There are various challenges associated with diagnosing malrotation on the AP view, and obtaining a lateral view is recommended for diagnosis. To be useful, the lateral view must be of adequate quality. In addition, radiologists must be aware of the normal appearance and configuration of duodenal variants such as duodenum redundum, on the lateral view, as misdiagnosis of these may lead to unnecessary surgery. We aim to determine the proportion of lateral views considered of adequate quality for diagnosis, as well as the prevalence of a not previously described sign, the 'descending stair' and its correspondence to a diagnosis of duodenum redundum.
