Due to the rare nature of esophageal pathologies, research projects that aim to improve awareness and the treatment of these pathologies are few and far between. Since 2007, the French Association for esophageal atresia (AFAO – Association Francaise de l’Atresie de L’Oesophage) has regularly asked for applications for the Prix Fanny-Selena (prior to 2017, the Prix Fanny) in memory of two girls who passed away as a result of their disease. The prize has enabled research to be initiated with a clear focus on the esophagus; an essential, functional but under-researched organ.
