Long Gap OA with or without TOF

Those born with long-gap OA have a number of health issues specific to the long-term morbidity of oesophageal replacement, in addition to often more severe symptoms of the common OA/TOF long-term conditions.

Whilst oesophageal replacement techniques have improved since the early days of successful repair, many of the older adults with oesophageal replacements have colonic transpositions which were originally developed in cancer patients intended to last five to ten years rather than five decades.
