  • Anterior cervical approach for repair of laryngotracheoesophageal cleft JOURNAL OF PEDIATRIC SURGERY Lipshutz, G. S., Albanese, C. T., Harrison, M. R., Jennings, R. W. 1998; 33 (2): 400-402


    Laryngotracheoesophageal cleft is a very rare congenital malformation characterized by a long midline communication between the esophagus and trachea extending from the larynx down the trachea for a variable distance. The most common repair strategy involves separation of the trachea and esophagus by a lateral approach via both a thoracotomy and a neck incision. The authors report a case of complete repair (without thoracotomy) via a neck incision through the anterior wall of the trachea.
