Among the multiple congenital defects associated to esophagueal atresia, the characteristic ones of the Goldenhar syndrome usually are not included.

Our experience includes two patients with this association who presented anesthetic problems and surgical complications associated with gastroesophageal reflux and esophageal anastomosis.

Description and substantiation of the method of surgical treatment and prophylaxis of reflux-esophagitis are given it rejects restoration of acute angle of this.

New anatomical arrangement of abdominal part of the esophague and the stomach is fixed by incomplete fundoplication around the esophague at 2/3 of its circumference.
