Abstract
Congenital esophageal atresia and T-E fistula, which was first reported by Thomas Gibson in 1696, was one of diseases of high mortality. In these days, the mortality after operation decreased markedly, chiefly in benefit of its improved surgical technique and postop care. Recently, we experienced one survived case after operation in Severance Hospital. Our case, who was 3 day old male baby,received end-to-end anastomosis and feeding gastrostomy with ligation of fistula about 60 hrs. after birth. His postop. course was relatively good, so was discharged on the 18th day after operation with toleration of oral feeding. Esophagogram which was taken 10 days after operation revealed good patency and motility. So we report here with brief discussion and review of world literature.
