A team of doctors at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here performed surgery to separate the oesophagus and respiratory tract of a two-day-old baby who had developed a trachea-oesophagal fistula problem.
The oesophagus was separated by surgery through the telescopic method (thoracoscopy). AIIMS pediatric surgeon Dr Pramod Sharma said the baby's condition was better after three weeks.
