Abstract

With the increase in attention paid to the problem of gastroesophageal reflux (GER) there is a rise in the number of publications emphasizing the predisposition of repaired esophageal atresia to GER and its aggressive prevention and therapy (Ashcraft et al. 1977; Fonkalsrud 1979; Pieretti et al. 1974).
