OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to evaluate and study the full spectrum of swallowing dysfunction and long-term disease-specific outcomes in adults with surgically corrected esophageal atresia/tracheaesophageal fistula (EA/TEF). BACKGROUND: Long-term outcomes for adults who underwent EA/TEF repair because infants are lacking. METHODS: We developed a disease-specific swallowing dysfunction questionnaire (SDQ) to assess swallowing dysfunction and quality of life (QOL) of adult patients with surgically corrected EA/TEF...

The management of a newborn with pure oesophageal atresia continues to be challenging. We started treating babies with pure oesophageal atresia by delayed primary anastomosis in 1977. The purpose of this study was to review the long-term outcome in infants with pure oesophageal atresia (EA) treated by delayed primary anastomosis with special emphasis on gastroesophageal reflux (GOR) related morbidity. The medical charts of all patients treated by delayed primary anastomosis between 1977 and 2004 were retrospectively reviewed...

AIM: Esophageal atresia (EA) and tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) consist of a spectrum of rare congenital abnormalities. Although EA surgical treatment is well established, the outcome of EA with proximal fistula (type B and D EA) or isolated H-type fistula (type E EA) is poorly explored. These forms of EA shared a common surgical step: the need of a cervical approach to close the fistula. Therefore, the aim of present study is to evaluate postoperative outcomes of patients treated for Gross type B-D and E EA, on regards of their cervical surgery...

Introduction Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are used as prophylaxis, guarding against anastomotic stricture (AS) in the aftermath of reconstructed esophageal atresia (EA). The incidence of stricture formation was studied in this setting, comparing outcomes of 3- and 12-month PPI prophylactic regimens. Patients and Methods Patient characteristics (gestational age, birth weight, prevalence of chromosomal aberrations, and other malformations), as well as rates of survival, AS formation, and required balloon dilation, were recorded in the following therapeutic subsets: (1) all infants undergoing primary surgical anastomosis for EA in years 2010-2014 and given postoperative PPI prophylaxis for 12 months and (2) all infants similarly treated for EA in years 2001-2009 but given postoperative PPI prophylaxis for 3 months only...

PURPOSE: Patients with long-gap esophageal atresia (LGEA) treated with the Foker process are at increased risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE). An institutional quality improvement program to decrease VTE risk factor exposure and utilize prophylactic anticoagulation was implemented. We aim to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a VTE risk-reduction program in patients with LGEA. METHODS: Implementation and evaluation of a VTE risk-reduction program in patients with LGEA from 2012 to 2015 was performed...

INTRODUCTION: Management of oesophageal atresia (OA) and trachea-oesophageal fistula (TOF) in babies of low birth weight is challenging especially when associated with other anomalies. Birth weight of <1500 g has previously formed part of a classification system designed to predict outcome, alongside the cardiac status of the patient. Improvements in neonatal care have led to increasing numbers of premature low birth weight infants surviving. The aim of this study was to look at the experience of our institution in the extremely low birth weight (ELBW) patients...

AIM OF THE STUDY: To assess the safety and effectiveness of fluoroscopic balloon dilatation (FBD) in children with esophageal anastomotic stricture after surgical repair of esophageal atresia. METHODS: All patients undergoing surgery for esophageal atresia and requiring dilatation(s) during a consecutive 15-year period [April 2000-September 2014] were analyzed. Dilatations were performed as day case procedures under general anesthesia using a radial force generating balloon device (Boston Scientific Corporation) by surgeons...

PURPOSE: Longitudinal esophageal strain has been shown to increase esophageal length but the contribution of tissue hyperplasia to this growth is unknown. We used a novel model of esophageal stretch to determine the cellular response to the strain stimulus. METHODS: Male Sprague-Dawley rats underwent transection of the distal esophagus. The distal stump was ligated and stretched over a silicone tube. The proximal esophageal stump was anastomosed to the stomach to restore continuity...

Long gap esophageal atresia (EA) is characterized by esophageal segments that are too far apart for primary anastomosis. Surgical repair utilizing interposition grafts or gastric transposition are often employed. The Foker staged lengthening procedure is an alternative surgical method that utilizes continuous traction on the esophagus to induce esophageal growth and allow for primary esophageal anastomosis. This pictorial review presents the step-by-step radiographic evaluation of the Foker procedure and illustrates the radiographic findings in the most commonly encountered complications in our cohort of 38 patients managed with this procedure from January 2000 to June 2012...

INTRODUCTION: We present the experiences from two European centers performing the Foker technique (FT) of esophageal lengthening by axial traction and the Kimura advancement (KA) method of lengthening the upper pouch by extrathoracic resiting a spit fistula (SF) in children with long-gap esophageal atresia (LGEA, gap length > 5 cm). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 15 children were treated (8 pure EA, 6 lower tracheoesophageal fistula [TEF], and 1 upper TEF)...

Primary repair of very long gap esophageal atresia (EA) with almost complete absence of thoracic esophagus has usually been thought impossible. Thus, esophageal replacement with colon or gastric interposition seemed inevitable. In contrast, J. Foker described a technique of lengthening the pouches with traction sutures and making primary repair possible. To contribute clinical experience to this discussion, we report about esophageal elongation in a child with long gap EA and an upper pouch tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF)...

Ultra-long-gap esophageal atresia, defined as a gap length of 3.5 cm or greater, has proved difficult to repair. When primary repair has been attempted, even with bougienage, circular myotomy, or intraabdominal esophageal mobilization to lessen anastomotic tension, leaks, anastomotic disruptions, and recurrent tracheoesophageal fistulas are frequent. Consequently, interposition grafts are commonly used. For long-term function the intact native esophagus should be preferable to an interposition graft or the consequences of circular myotomy...

We report on technical modifications we developed for thoracoscopic esophagoesophagostomy in patients with esophageal atresia. They are: (1) placing stay sutures along the edges of the atretic esophagi and exteriorizing them through the thoracic wall to expose the luminal surfaces of the esophagi nicely and relieve tension on the anastomosis; (2) leaving 1/5 of the length of the distal and proximal ends of the atretic esophagi intact before placing the stay sutures, to avoid retraction of the mucosa into the lumen; (3) making the diameter of the proximal esophagus 1...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the evolution from delayed management of long gap esophageal atresia to thoracoscopic treatment directly after birth without the placement of a gastrostomy. BACKGROUND: Long gap esophageal atresia remains a challenge for pediatric surgeons. Over the years, several techniques have been described to deal with the problem of the distance between the proximal and distal esophagus. More recently, a traction technique has been advocated. With the advent of minimal invasive surgery, the thoracoscopic elongation technique has been developed...
