Abstract: 

Introduction: Background: Esophageal atresia (EA) is a congenital anomaly that is treated by surgical reconstruction. Some early postoperative complications may happen in this filed. we assessed complications following EA repair in a large series of neonates with EA / TEF and in hospital mortality among a large series of our cases.
Materials and methods: 243 patients with EA / TEF that were treated operatively in Sarvar Children’s Hospital from 2002 to 2010 were studied. Early post-operative complications in ICU and surgery ward until hospital discharge were assessed.
Results: Mean age was 3.4±2.76 days. Primary repair was performed in 83.5% Mean hospital stay was 12.5±12.81 days. Respiratory problems and food intolerance were most common early complications. In-hospital mortality rate was decreased significantly during last 8 years (from 17.6% to 4.7%)
Conclusion: Acceptable results and a growing survival rate was observed in this series of patients and we hope better results with improvements in minimally invasive methods.
