About this website

Purpose of www.we-are-eat.org
The purpose of this web site is to provide information for EA support groups, EA patients and their families, health professionals, other stakeholders and any other organisation or individual concerned with esophageal atresia.

we-are-eat.org  does not provide medical advice.  It cannot be used to make, confirm, or treat a medical diagnosis, or condition. If you have questions or concerns about EA, you should contact your physician or surgeon.

The primary language of the site is English, chosen to facilitate communication among speakers of European and other languages world-wide.

Please note that in most instances the American English spelling of ‘esophageal atresia’ (hence the use of abbreviations EA and TEF) is used in preference to the form ‘oesophageal atresia’ (abbreviated as OA). The latter form, typically used in the UK and some other countries, is retained only where it is part of a name, an original document or submission to this web-site. The reasons for this are (a) because the use of ‘esophageal atresia’ and its abbreviation  ‘EA’ is in line with our federation’s name (EAT) and (b) because the international medical community more generally uses the form ‘esophageal atresia’.  We thank you for your understanding.
