Supraclavicular approach to cervical esophageal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula.


This is a report of a patient with esophageal atresia with a blind upper pouch and a lower pouch fistula, both in the neck. The preoperative radiologic appearance of an air-filled esophagus behind the trachea suggested a higher than normal fistula. Preoperative bronchoscopy confirmed the cervical position of the fistula and, as a result, a supraclavicular incision was used to approach both the atresia and fistula.
