Surgical management of long-gap esophageal atresia (LGEA) remains challenging. Yet, there is a consensus among pediatric surgeons to preserve native esophagus. We used a new surgical technique to successfully manage three children diagnosed with LGEA. This technique consists of a combined thoracic and cervical approach to the EA repair using the patient's native esophagus. All patients initially had had gastrostomy and continuous upper pouch suction while awaiting surgery. This new technique has the potential to become the choice method in LGEA management.
