With the increased survival of children with congenital foregut anomalies and/or having undergone neonatal extracorporeal membrane oxygenation treatment, the focus of attention should be directed towards improvement of long-term morbidity.
The findings presented in this thesis demonstrate the importance of long-term evaluation of morbidity in these children - from childhood into adulthood. Early risk stratification and targeted interventions are recommended.
