Abstract

Patients with esophageal atresia and a distal trachoesophageal fistula with associated conditions contributing to decreased pulmonary compliance present special problems in management. In the face of positive pressure ventilation, the fistula acts as a vent preventing adequate ventilatory effort from reaching the lungs. A thoracic approach to ligate or divide the fistula carries with it a high mortality rate. A technique is described whereby a silicone rubber band is applied to the gastroesophageal junction to effectively occlude the esophagus. It is designed so that it can be adjusted or removed, without operative intervention, according to the patient's clinical course and growth.
