Tongue-Tie (Ankyloglossia)

Ankyloglossia, or tongue-tie, is a congenital condition in which the tongue is restricted in movement due to tissue (called a frenulum) tethering it to the mouth floor. Tongue-tie may contribute to infant feeding problems and, as a child ages, may affect speaking and oral hygiene. In many cases, these issues resolve once the condition is treated....

Complete tracheal rings refers to a defect in the structure of the cartilages that make up the trachea.

Tracheoesophageal Fistula
