A baby who was dying because his esophagus didn’t reach his stomach was saved by doctors.

Erva Kaya was born to first parents Murat Kaya (27) and Ilknur Kaya (26) in Samsun, northern Turkey.

She was born with an esophagus just three centimeters long, the tube through which food travels from the mouth to the stomach, commonly referred to as the esophagus.

The rare birth defect is called esophageal atresia and affects the esophagus when the upper part of the esophagus is not connected to the lower esophagus and stomach.

It usually ends up in a pouch, meaning food can’t get into the stomach.

It often occurs along with another birth defect known as a tracheoesophageal fistula, where the lower part of the esophagus and the trachea join.

As a result, air from the trachea moves into the esophagus and into the stomach, and stomach acid moves into the lungs.

The result of these defects is that the baby cannot swallow safely – or at all.

If this isn’t treated within a few days of birth, the baby can develop serious problems like choking or pneumonia.

Murat and Ilknur brought little Erva to Dr. Ayse Bahar Edirne in Samsun.

The surgeon said: “It is an extremely rare case. This situation requires surgery. If it is not done, there is no chance of survival.”

In an operation, Dr. Edirne Erva’s esophagus from three to 15 centimeters before repairing it and saving the baby’s life.

Mother Ilknur said: “We were separated from our child for 25 days. It was a difficult process, but luckily we got through it successfully.”

And Papa Murat said with relief: “When the diagnosis was made, we immediately started the examination.

“We saw that Dr. Edirne has successfully performed this operation before. She helped us.

“Even on the phone, she said she could do the surgery without any problems. She informed us that it is a treatable disease. Our baby is very healthy at the moment.”
