FDA Approved Medical Device for Esophageal Birth Defect

The esophagus is a tube that usually carries food from the mouth to the stomach. Esophageal atresia is a digestive system disorder in babies. Esophageal atresia is a congenital defect where the esophagus is not developed properly. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently authorized a first medical device "Flourish Pediatric Esophageal Atresia Anastomosis" to treat esophageal birth defect in babies.
