Abstract

Background: Anastomotic stricture is an important problem after esophageal atresia (EA) repair. This study evaluates a technique of oblique esophageal anastomosis without use of a flap in order to prevent stricture formation. Methods: Medical records of 16 patients (14 with EA type III and 2 with EA type IV Ladd-Gross classification) who underwent primary repair of EA at birth without anastomotic tension were reviewed, evaluating long-term follow-up results. All patients were studied with esophageal contrast study, pH-multichannel intraluminal impedance, and endoscopy. The incidence of complications and their management were analysed. Results: Contrast esophagogram and esophagoscopy always showed regular patency of the suture line. Conclusions: Our technique of oblique anastomosis is simple, safe, and effective in preventing stricture formation even in the long-term follow-up.
