The surgical management of infants born with esophageal atresia (EA) with or without tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) represents one of the major triumphs of pediatric surgery in the twentieth century. After five failed attempts, Dr. Cameron Haight performed the first successful primary repair of a neonate with EA/TEF in 1941 . Since this initial report, advances in surgical technique and neonatal care have steadily improved survival rates in babies within the EA/TEF spectrum. Based on 2006 data from a major pediatric referral center, survival of EA/TEF children with birth weights greater than 1500 g and no major cardiac anomalies is now over 98% .
