ABSTRACT: Two hundred patients of esophageal atresia with or without tracheoesophageal fistula treated during a period of 8 years were studied with emphasis on magnitude of gap between two ends of esophagus. Patients were divided in two groups, one group (154 patients) with gap less than 2 cm and other group (46 patients) with gap more than 2 cm. Mortality and complications were noted with reference to distance between the two ends of esophagus. There was high morbidity and mortality in patients with long gap. Surgical technique, proper mobilization of proximal pouch and tension free anastomosis are prerequisite for a final outcome.
