This is the case of a 2-day-old female newborn with an esophageal atresia with distal tracheoesophageal fistula. She underwent an anatomic thoracoscopic repair. This approach allows for the complete repair of the abnormality leaving the esophagus placed at its normal anatomical position, sparing the azygos vein.
