Esophageal rupture caused by
explosion of an automobile tire tube: a case report
There have been no reports in the
literature of esophageal rupture in adults resulting from an explosion of an
automobile tire. We report the first case of just such an occurrence after an
individual bit into a tire, causing it to explode in his mouth.
A 47-year-old Han Chinese man
presented with massive hemorrhage in his left eye after he accidentally bit an
automobile tire tube which burst into his mouth. He was diagnosed with
esophageal rupture based on a chest computed tomography scan and barium swallow
examination. Drainage of empyema (right chest), removal of thoracic esophagus,
exposure of cervical esophagus, cardiac ligation and gastrostomy were performed
respectively. After that, esophagogastrostomy was performed.
Successful anastomosis was
obtained at the neck with no postoperative complications 3 months after the
surgery. The patient was discharged with satisfactory outcomes. We present this
case report to bring attention to esophageal rupture in adults during the
explosion of an automobile tire tube in the mouth.
