AbstractThoracoscopic repair (TR) of esophageal atresia (EA) has been performed with increasing frequency over the last two decades, with the expectation of improved outcomes by avoiding thoracotomy. To understand the current practice and outcomes of TR of EA, we reviewed the relevant literature, including 15 case series, 7 comparative studies, and 3 meta-analysis comparing TR with conventional open repair (COR). Most of the studies had a retrospective design and small numbers of patients. Although the evidence level is low because of the lack of prospective studies, this review found that TR is as safe as COR, with compar...

Conclusion: Multiple airway anomalies may be seen in VACTERL association. It is worthwhile to make special note for evaluating the tracheobronchial pulmonary system by chest CT and bronchoscopy, especially patients presenting with breathing anomalies.

QUANTITATIVE MRI STUDY OF INFANT REGIONAL BRAIN SIZE FOLLOWING NEONATAL SURGERY FOR LONG-GAP ESOPHAGEAL ATRESIA REQUIRING PROLONGED CRITICAL CARE. Int J Dev Neurosci. 2019 Sep 26;: Authors: Lee Mongerson CR, Jennings RW, Zurakowski D, Bajic D Abstract INTRODUCTION: Little is known regarding the impact of concurrent critical illness and thoracic noncardiac perioperative critical care on postnatal brain development. Previously, we reported smaller total brain volumes in both critically ill full-term and premature patients following complex perioperative critical care for long-gap esophageal atresia (LGE...

We report on a newborn with TEF who developed HS after thoracoscopic repair. On the first day of life, the girl (3,480 g, gestation age: 41 week) underwent thoracoscopic repair of a type C esophageal atresia (TEF; OR time 105 minute) without complications. The postoperative course was uneventful, the patient swallowed and thrived well and did not require esophageal dilatations. At 2 years of age, missing facial flushing, transpiration, and warming on the right side of her face during agitation were noticed. As no further intervention was required, the girl and her parents adapted well to the symptoms. Our rep...

Long term outcomes of gastric transposition (GT) for complex esophageal atresia (EA) are poorly reported. We aimed to perform comprehensive long term follow up of adults who had been treated with GT for EA as children.

This article is focused on common congenital malformation, such as oesophageal atresia, abdominal wall defects, anorectal malformation and Hirschsprung disease, and congenital diaphragmatic hernia. The main problems are shown, with special emphasis on long-term complications and all the dimensions of the individual. PMID: 31495740 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Prediction of gap length by vertebral level of arrest of the nasogastric tube in the upper pouch in a preoperative chest X-ray correlated well with intra operatively measured gap length in cases of EA-TEF.
