  • A strategy for primary reconstruction of long gap esophageal atresia using neonatal colon esophagoplasty: A case report Lipshutz, G. S., Albanese, C. T., Jennings, R. W., Bratton, B. J., Harrison, M. R. W B SAUNDERS CO-ELSEVIER INC. 1999: 75-77


    Treatment options for long gap esophageal atresia without tracheoesophageal fistula generally require several stages over many months. An early neonatal vascularized conduit would allow a tension-free anastomosis, but the precarious blood supply of the neonatal bowel makes mobilization and immediate interposition hazardous. This report describes the successful application of a strategy for primary reconstruction in the neonate using a short piece of colon mobilized into the mediastinum for subsequent delayed anastomosis.
