Thoracoscopic repair of esophageal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula (EA/TEF) is a technically challenging surgical procedure. This congenital anomaly is rare; therefore, training opportunities for surgical trainees are limited. There are currently no validated simulation tools available to help train pediatric surgery trainees. The simulator that was developed is a low-cost, reusable model. It simulates the right side of a term neonate chest and contains a tissue block that has been surgically modified to replicate the anatomy of EA/TEF.
