Tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF), and esophageal atresia, Type C

DA: 103

Developmental anomaly information

Definition: Tracheoesophageal fistula is a developmental anomaly characterized by an abnormal connection between the trachea and the esophagus and usually accompanies esophageal atresia. Esophageal atresia is failure of the esophagus to form a continuous passage from the pharynx to the stomach. There are some cases of Tracheoesophageal fistula without esophageal atresia.


  • Esophageal atresia with distal TEF
