ESPGHAN-NASPGHAN Guidelines for the Evaluation and Treatment of Gastrointestinal and Nutritional Complications in Children With Esophageal Atresia-Tracheoesophageal Fistula

10 April 2017

These patients face gastrointestinal (GI) problems not only in early childhood but also through adolescence and adulthood.

There is, however, currently a lack of a systematic approach to the care of these patients. The GI working group of International Network on Esophageal Atresia comprises members from ESPGHAN/NASPGHAN and
was charged with the task of developing uniform evidence-based guidelines for the management of GI complications in children with EA.
