We analyzed the results of surgical treatment of 232 neonates with esophageal ataresia (AP) in the Republican Perinatal Center (ROC) from 2006 to 2016.The first group (comparison) - 67 neonates for whom the esophageal anastomosis was mainly performed with the traditional method, i.e., single-row interrupted seams. The second (main) group - 165 children, who underwent surgery in a modified clinic way. The results of the study confirmed the effectiveness of the technique to prevent the reflux of gastric contents into the anastomotic zone. A gastric tube (Foley catheter) inserted during surgery was not replaced for at least 10 days, as blind insertion could damage the anastomosis.
