1. Type C esophageal atresia
Type C esophageal atresia.
Contrast study of a 2-week-old infant to determine the length of the atretic segment. A. Contrast fills a blind-ending dilated esophageal pouch (arrow) in the upper portion of the chest. There is rightward deviation of the trachea. B. Contrast injected through a gastrostomy tube refluxes into the distal esophageal segment and passes via a fistula into the distal portion of the trachea.
2. Esophageal atresia type D
Esophageal atresia type D.
A lateral esophagram image shows a dilated upper esophageal pouch that communicates via a fistula with the trachea (upper arrow). A second thin fistula (lower arrow) extends from the inferior aspect of the trachea into the distal segment of the esophagus.
A chest radiograph of a newborn infant shows looping of a feeding tube in the distended upper thoracic portion of the esophagus. There is rightward deviation of the trachea. There are multiple vertebral anomalies.
4. Esophageal atresia type A
Esophageal atresia type A.
A. A radiograph of a 1-day-old infant shows a gasless abdomen. A tube is present in the obstructed esophagus. B. A retrograde esophagram at 2 months of age shows a short, blind-ending distal esophageal segment (lower arrow) that does not communicate with the tracheobronchial tree. A tube indicates the level of the upper esophageal pouch (upper arrow).
A radiograph of a 31-week gestational age newborn infant shows a tube in an air-filled upper esophageal pouch (arrow). There is prominent bowel gas in the abdomen due to passage via a distal fistula (type C lesion). Cardiomegaly is present, due to a ventricular septal defect (VSD) and atrial septal defect (ASD).
6. Type E (H-type) tracheoesophageal fistula
Type E (H-type) tracheoesophageal fistula.
A lateral esophagram image shows a contrast-opacified thin tract (arrow) extending between the esophagus and the trachea.
7. Type A esophageal atresia
Type A esophageal atresia.
There is no tracheoesophageal fistula in this infant. Tubes in the proximal and distal portions of the esophagus (arrows) define ...
