ABSTRACT: The results of treatment have been analysed in 31 consecutive cases of esophageal atresia (E.A) with or without tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) over a period of 4 years in respect to Waterston Groups, gestational age, weight, pre-existing pneumonitis, temperature, age at admission or at timing of surgery and associated life threatening anomalies. Survival was directly related to gestational age, weight, temperature and absence of pneumonitis. All the babies with core temperature less than 35 degree Celcius did not survive. Even improved survival rate in recent years is not comparable with those reports from developed countries. The factors for poor results have been studied, analysed and further improvements suggested.
