Abstract

In the developing countries, the babies with pure esophageal atresia undergo an esophagostomy and feeding gastrostomy at birth. It assists in early discharge from hospital. Esophageal substitution in these babies around six months is recommended. We report the first laparoscopic and thoracoscopic gastric pull up in early infancy from India.
