Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Eight infants with congenital esophageal atresia and tracheo-esophageal fistula were anesthetised for surgical correction of the anomaly. Five of them were done in Glasgow and three in Alexandria. The problems encountered in the management of these cases are discussed together with the factors affecting survival. Pneumonia and respiratory failure were the main cause of the 50 percent mortality encountered in the present study.
