Esophageal anomalies and disorders in infancy and childhood include a wide spectrum of different diseases. These range from emergencies immediately after birth such as esophageal atresia (EA), necessitating an experienced team of neonatologist and pediatric surgeons, up to gastro-esoghageal reflux disease in elder children, necessitating the pediatric gastroenterologist and visceral surgeon. In the last few years some fascinating pediatric surgical techniques have envolved, such as the thoracoscopic correction of EA or the FOKER technique for elongation in cases of long-gap , EA. (Prof. Foker has developed this special traction technique and is the world's leading expert in long-gap EA).
