These anomalies were diagnosed VACTERL - association that must include at least three out of six principal anomalies of previously mentioned, e.g., (1) V - vertebral defects, (2) A - anal atresia, (3) C - cardiac anomalies, (4) TE - tracheo-esophageal fistula, (5) R - renal anomalies, and (6) L - limb abnormalities.
