Oesophageal atresia is blockage in the oesophagus (food pipe). It is often associated with an abnormal connection between the oesophagus and trachea (wind pipe) below the level of blockage. This is known as Tracheo-oesophageal fistula (TOF). Some babies with TOF will have other problems with development of the kidneys, their bottom (anorectal abnormality) or other areas.
