On Thursday March 11, at 5:00 PM EST, Brenner Children's Hospital of Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center will broadcast a live presentation of a life-saving procedure, Esophageal Atresia.

Esophageal atresia is a rare congenital disorder in which the esophagus does not develop properly. This disorder is often detected before birth through ultrasound examinations. If not, the disorder is diagnosed at birth. In 85 percent of cases, the esophagus does not connect with the lower esophagus and stomach. Sometimes the top of the esophagus connects with the windpipe and can cause food to be whisked into the windpipe and can cause choking and gagging.
