Update on Oesophageal Atresia-Tracheoesophageal Fistula

Ebook Frontiers Update on EA-TEF

In 2010, the First International Workshop on Esophageal Atresia was held in Lille, France. The success of that event established a new model of conference based not on medical subspecialty but specifically on disease, bringing together diverse disciplines all linked together by their common interest and expertise in treating EA.

The International Network of Esophageal Atresia (INoEA) was founded in 2013. On September 15–16, 2016, the fourth International Conference on Esophageal Atresia “Coming Together” took place in Sydney, NSW, Australia. More than 200 participants from all over the world attended the conference.

There were over 80 scientific abstracts submitted. All the categories of people involved in the care of EA patients were represented; not only neonatologists, pediatricians, surgeons, gastroenterologists, otolaryngologists, pulmonologists, radiologists, anesthesiologists, intensivists, but also, nurses, dieticians, speech pathologists, psychologists, occupational therapists, social workers, parents of patients, and children and adults with EA.

This special edition of “Frontiers in Pediatrics” contains summaries and review articles of selected presentations delivered by the distinguished guest speakers during the conference.

We look forward to the next fifth international conference on EA in Rome in 2019 where we are sure that many new advancements and innovations in the field will be presented.
