Abstract

Background/PurposeAlthough advances have been made in the prenatal diagnosis of esophageal atresia (EA), most neonates are not identified until after birth. The distended hypopharynx (DHP) has been suggested as a novel prenatal sign for EA. We assess its diagnostic accuracy and predictive value on ultrasound (US) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), both alone and in combination with the esophageal pouch (EP) and secondary signs of EA (polyhydramnios and a small or absent fetal stomach).
