Abstract

Introduction Feeding problems are common in children with esophageal atresia and tracheoesophageal fistula (EA-TEF); however, chewing disorders, which may cause inability to intake solid food, have not been evaluated. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the chewing function in children with repaired EA-TEF.
