To help you understand the OA/TOF condition(s) we have produced a number of leaflets and publications. These are available for you to download and print free-of-charge.  Alternatively, request hard copies from the TOFS office.  TOFS members receive regular copies of our newsletter (Chew) and updates on our latest publications.

For TOF parents visiting this website for the first time there is a lot of information to take in. We suggest that you do not try to read everything at once, but start with the OVERVIEW OF OA/TOF/VACTERL

We are currently reviewing our range of publications.  Some leaflets have been in print for some time, and are still available below.  Do visit this page regularly as new versions will be uploaded during 2020. We hope to have some exciting animations available soon too. 

If English is not your first language you can use the Google translate button at the top of the website page to select your language. It isn’t always accurate but it may help. We have also included a list of TOF related medical terms in a number European Languages, these can be found in the 'Other Documents' section. Some of our publications are now available in Arabic and can be found in the 'Learn More About OA/TOF' section.
