Current approaches to the repair of long-gap esophageal atresia (EA) favor esophageal anastomosis. This investigation provides a midterm follow-up of long-gap EA with a primary repair to determine whether this procedure affects symptom severity and whether symptom severity may predict worsening of dysmotility. Fifteen children at least 1-year post primary repair were divided into group 1 (long-gap) and group 2 (non-long-gap). The severity of their symptoms was graded using a questionnaire… CONTINUE READING
