When a Baby Has Esophageal Atresia and Tracheoesophageal Fistula

Dr. Peter Yu discusses esophageal atresia, which is a birth defect when the esophagus abnormally forms in two parts and food cannot get from the mouth to the stomach. This defect often occurs with tracheoesophageal fistula, which is when the esophagus and trachea are abnormally connected to each other. Both conditions can be repaired surgically.
