    Oesophageal atresia can be associated with communicating bronchopulmonary foregut malformations, the most common being the oesophageal bronchus. Lung resection may be mandatory, but conservative treatment correcting the abnormal airway has been proposed, raising the difficult issue of...

    Epiphrenic divericula are uncommon disorders of the lower oesophagus, which are symptomatic in only 15-20% of cases. The optimum treatment modality for such cases remains an oesophageal diverticulectomy with long myotomy with or without an antireflux operation. Recently, this is increasingly...

    The diagnosis of oesophageal atresia (OA) is usually made soon after birth. Two diagnostic criteria are failure to pass a nasogastric (NG) tube and a chest radiograph demonstrating a curled NG tube in the upper oesophageal pouch. A 6-day-old neonate was referred to our institution with...

    Background: Management of long gap oesophageal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula (OA TEF) is challenging. Various intra-operative and preoperative manures have been described to tackle this challenge. We reviewed our experiences with livaditis circular myotomy. The aim of this study was to...

    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)...
