Case Report

Abstract

We provided emergency treatment to a 1-day-old neonate (1600 g) with tracheoesophageal fistula (gross classification, type C) and total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage (infracardiac type) complicated by pulmonary venous obstruction. Emergency surgery was required because the tracheoesophageal fistula would have caused respiratory failure. Here we report the perioperative management techniques we used, including the surgical strategy.
