Background:

Several types of complications including constipation, fecal soiling, perianal excoriation, were reported among different types of surgery for Hirschsprung’s disease.

Aim:

To compare circular and oblique anastomoses following Soave’s procedure for the treatment of Hirschsprung’s disease.

Methods:

Children who underwent Saove’s pull through procedure with oblique and circular anastomoses were included. Duration of the follow up was two years after surgery. Postoperative complications, such as wound infection, wound dehiscence, peritonitis, fecal soiling, perianal excoriation, were recorded for each patient.

Results:

Thirty-eight children underwent oblique anastomoses. Circular ones were done for 32 children. Perianal excoriation was seen in 57.89% and 46.87% of children in oblique and circular group, respectively. Enterocolitis was more frequent in circular (40.62%) than oblique (28.94%) group. Anastomotic stricture was more frequent in circular (15.62%) than oblique (7.89%).

Conclusion:

Perianal excoriation was the most common complication among patient in both groups. Oblique anastomoses had fewer complications than circular, and may be appropriate option for patient who underwent Soave’s procedure.
