Esophageal atresia (EA) is a congenital anomaly commonly found with tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) of neonates in the first week of life. This anomaly can cause several complications including aspiration, reduction in respiration, and complication from other concomitant congenital anomalies, mostly from the heart origin. The treatment for this anomaly is a surgery. Intraoperatively, the patient may develop hypoxia due to lung retraction and hemodynamic instability from bleeding or hypothermia. Anaesthesiologists play an important role in the management of EA during the perioperative period. Careful examination of the preoperative period must be done to discover any other concomitant anomaly and complication. Good anticipation of any complication during surgery and continuous monitoring post surgery can elevate the prognosis of the patient.
