VACTERL association is the non-random occurrence of a combination of vertebral, anal and cardiac anomalies, trachea-oesophageal fistula with oesophageal atresia, radial anomalies, and renal dysplasia. The clinical diagnosis can be made when at least three component features are present.

The case from the geneticists’ side will be made by Dr. Carlo Marcelis from the Department of Human Genetics in Radboudumc in the Netherlands. The view from the surgeons’ side will be made by Prof. Ernesto Leva, Director of the Department of Pediatric Surgery at the Policlinico in Milan.

This is the fourth webinar in the series covering all aspects of paediatric colorectal surgery, in particular (congenital) anorectal malformations, and is a joint presentation between ERN eUROGEN and ERN ERNICA. It is supported by the European Paediatric Surgeons’ Association (EUPSA).
