Abstract

Survival after surgical treatment for oesophageal atresia without associated anomalies, reached, in our institution, 90% in the last three years. Despite these results, when an extraoesophageal malformation is concomitant, prognosis is statistically more serious quoad vitam, especially if it is a cardiovascular anomaly. At this purpose, we reviewed the last consecutive 133 patients that came to our attention with diagnosis of oesophageal atresia. Data suggest the necessity of further improvement of emergency intensive care when a cardiovascular malformation is associated to oesophageal atresia.
