BACKGROUND: Surgical advancements have led to improved outcomes for children with congenital anorectal malformations with vestibular and perineal fistulas. However, the effect of perioperative nutritional management is debated and guidelines have not yet been established. OBJECTIVE: The study aims to give an overview of available published evidence, regarding the impact of different perioperative nutritional management protocols on surgical outcome. METHODS: A systematic literature review was conducted using PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, and CINAHL databases...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Usually, anorectal malformations (ARM) are treated in 2 or 3 stages for fear of disturbed wound healing and subsequent damage to the anal sphincter complex. The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility, safety, advantages, and follow-up of an anterior or posterior sagittal anorectoplasty in low-type ARM (rectoperineal or rectovestibular), performed without colostomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Prospective collection of data regarding demographics, VACTERL (Vertebral-, Anal-, Cardiac-, Tracheo-Esophageal-, Renal-, Limb malformations) screening, perioperative measurements, surgeons, and complications...

Thirty-three years ago, on 10 August 1980, in Mexico City, the first patient with an anorectal malformation was operated on using the posterior sagittal approach. At that time it was not obvious that we were actually opening a "Pandora's box" that continues to give many positive surprises, a few disappointments, and the constant hope that each day we can learn more about how to improve the quality of life of children born with all different types of anorectal malformations. In November 2012, patient number 3000 in our database was operated in the city of Cochabamba, Bolivia; during one of our International Courses of Anorectal Malformations and Colorectal Problems in Children...

OBJECTIVE: The published surgical literatures have referred only to females as having cloacal defects and the incidence in males is not well established. As during embryogenesis, both sexes have to pass through the stage of a cloaca, there is every chance of development of cloacal anomalies in males also. Here, we are presenting our experience of male cloacal malformations. METHODS: We identified four cases of male cloaca by reviewing medical records of all anorectal malformation (ARM) patients treated at our institution in the past 19 years...

We report 2 patients with rectal and low sigmoid atresia operated on, respectively, at 6 and 3 months of age using the transanal approach, similar to the transanal technique for Hirschsprung disease, after exploratory laparotomy with colostomy at birth. There were no intraoperative or postoperative complications after a follow-up time of 2 years. After closure of the colostomy, both patients had no fecal incontinence. The transanal approach is a safe and effective technique in the management of rectal and sigmoid atresia...

INTRODUCTION: Rectal atresia/stenosis is a rare disorder in the spectrum of anorectal malformations and is particularly associated with a presacral mass. These patients are born with a normal anal canal but have a stricture or complete atresia located a few centimeters proximal to the dentate line. We present a surgical technique for the management of these patients, as well as their unique clinical concerns and outcomes. METHODS: We reviewed the records of 14 patients with rectal atresia and 3 with rectal stenosis...
