To save her life, and her emergency esophageal stent placed so that the fistula be blocked, which will help patients eat and control lung infection. But did not last long, esophageal fistula has increasingly expanded, the patient choking again, decided to row a second photodynamic therapy, and the trachea, esophagus simultaneously, and the fistula with fibrin glue to seal. At the same time taking the esophagus flat bulk , obstructive, reduce tumor blood conditioning, so Fu aunt shortly return to normal eating, again turned the corner. The rational use of a variety of high-tech and traditional treatment of the bold changes, coupled with the use of Chinese medicine, Ms. Chu made the good therapeutic effect, had difficulty breathing, critically ill patients is difficult to eat and miraculously come alive .
