A unique case of distal tracheoesophageal fistula with proximal esophageal atresia duplication

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Esophageal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula (EA-TEF) is a congenital malformation typically identified during the neonate period. TEFs are classified according to their anatomic configuration. We present a case that demonstrates a unique anomaly that involves a distal TEF with proximal esophageal atresia duplication. Our case reveals the importance of preoperative planning and intraoperative exploration during this surgical procedure.
