Does on Table Extubation in Tracheo-oesophageal Fistula Babies Improve Survival Rates?" - A Retrospective Study
Tracheo-oesophageal fistula (TOF) is a congenital anomaly with an incidence of 2.55 to 2.82 in 10000 livebirths. Majority of new born babies with TOF require post-operative mechanical ventilator support which contributes to sepsis and increased mortality. With advancement in paediatric anaesthesia, surgical technique, and NICU care the survival rates of TOF can be significantly increased.
