BACKGROUND: Esophageal atresia (EA) is a rare congenital anomaly with high infantile survival rates. The aim of this study was to outline the prevalence of common long-term problems associated with EA repair in patients older than 10 years of age. DATA SOURCES: Original papers were identified by systematic searching of MEDLINE and EMBASE databases from January 1993 to July 2014. Fifteen articles (907 EA patients) met inclusion criteria. CONCLUSIONS: This is the first systematic review aiming to quantify the prevalence of the long-term problems associated with EA...

MULTICENTER STUDY

OBJECTIVES: For the past 60 years, successful repair of esophageal atresia (EA) and distal tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) has been performed via a thoracotomy. However, a number of reports have described adverse musculoskeletal sequelae following thoracotomy in infants and young children. Until now, only a few scattered case reports have detailed an individual surgeon's success with thoracoscopic repair of EA/TEF. This multi-institutional review represents the largest experience describing the results with this approach...

The first thoracoscopic esophageal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula (EATEF) repair was performed in March of 2000. This report evaluates the results and evolution of the technique in a single surgeons' experience after the first decade of thoracoscopic EATEF repair. From March 2000 to September 2012, 52 consecutive patients with type 3 EATEF, and an additional nine patients with pure esophageal atresia (EA) were repaired by or under the direct supervision of a single surgeon. Patient weight ranged from 1...

PURPOSE: Esophageal atresia (EA) is one of the most frequent congenital alimentary tract anomalies with a considerable morbidity throughout childhood. This study evaluates the gastroesophageal problems in 5-15 year old children with EA and aims to identify factors predisposing to esophagitis in EA. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Fifty-nine patients primarily operated at Odense University Hospital, Denmark, during 1993-2005 were included in this follow-up study. The patients underwent the following examinations: Interview, upper endoscopy, endoscopic ultrasonography, high-resolution esophageal manometry (HREM), and pH- and multichannel intraluminal impedance (MII) measurements...

REVIEW
Thomas Kovesi, Steven Rubin
Congenital esophageal atresia (EA) and/or tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) are common congenital anomalies. Respiratory and GI complications occur frequently, and may persist lifelong. Late complications of EA/TEF include tracheomalacia, a recurrence of the TEF, esophageal stricture, and gastroesophageal reflux. These complications may lead to a brassy or honking-type cough, dysphagia, recurrent pneumonia, obstructive and restrictive ventilatory defects, and airway hyperreactivity. Aspiration should be excluded in children and adults with a history of EA/TEF who present with respiratory symptoms and/or recurrent lower respiratory infections, to prevent chronic pulmonary disease...

REVIEW
T Kovesi
Despite early surgical repair, congenital esophageal atresia with or without tracheoesophageal fistula (EA ± TEF) has long-term effects on respiratory and gastrointestinal function. This review updates summarizes research published since 2003 on long-term respiratory complications in patients with a history of EA ± TEF. Pulmonary hypoplasia appears to not be rare in patients with EA ± TEF. Tracheomalacia is common and is associated with respiratory symptoms in childhood. Aspiration, associated with esophageal dysmotility and/or gastroesophageal reflux, may lead to reduced pulmonary function and bronchiectasis...
