Purpose null While fecal incontinence is a primary concern for many children with anorectal malformations (ARM), urinary incontinence is also prevalent in this population. Racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic disparities in urinary continence have been observed in other conditions, but have not been previously evaluated in ARM. We aimed to evaluate urinary continence and associated demographic and socioeconomic characteristics in individuals with ARM. null Methods null We performed a multicenter re...

Summary null null Introduction null Young adults with complex congenital bowel and bladder anomalies are a vulnerable population at risk for poor health outcomes. Their experiences with the healthcare system and attitudes towards their health are understudied. null null null Objective null Our objective was to describe how young adults with congenital bladder and bowel conditions perceive their current healthcare in the domains of bladder and bowel management, reproductive health, and transition...

Introduction The current understanding of Hirschsprung-associated enterocolitis (HAEC) is based mainly on single-center, retrospective studies. The aims of this study are to determine risk factors for postoperative HAEC using the Pediatric Colorectal and Pelvic Learning Consortium (PCPLC) database. Materials and Methods We performed a multicenter, retrospective, case–control study of children with Hirschsprung disease (HD) who had undergone a pull-through procedure and were evaluated at a PCPLC ...

Abstract null null This is a commentary on the manuscript entitled “One-Year Impact of a Bowel Management Program in Treating Fecal Incontinence in Patients with Anorectal Malformations” by Richard Wood and colleagues.
Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) is an identified complication of the COVID-19 infection A common presentation of both COVID-19 and MIS-C is acute abdominal pain, sometimes mimicking appendicitis We report two cases of patients initially diagnosed with appendicitis who either presented with or developed signs of shock and were found to have MIS-C An 8-year-old girl who tested positive for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) reverse transcriptase-poly...

Abstract Purpose The purpose of this study was to compare the postoperative outcomes of neonatal versus delayed repair of rectoperineal and rectovestibular fistulae using a multi-center pediatric colorectal specific database. We hypothesized that the incidence of 30-day postoperative complications is not significantly different between these two surgical treatment strategies. Methods We performed a retrospective, observational study of the Pediatric Colorectal and Pelvic Learning Consortium (PCP...

ABSTRACT Background/Purpose : The timing of endorectal pull-through for Hirschsprung disease (HD) is controversial. Neonatal primary endorectal pull-through theoretically prevents preoperative enterocolitis. Delayed primary endorectal pull-through offers the surgeon the benefit of more robust perineal anatomy and allows primary caregivers the time to emotionally process the diagnosis and to gain experience with rectal irrigations. We hypothesized that delayed primary endorectal pull-through woul...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE SARS-COV-2 pandemic has affected the population worldwide requiring social distancing, quarantine and isolation as strategies to control virus propagation. Initial measures to reduce the burden to the health care system during the pandemic included deferring elective surgery. These damage control measures did not take into account the mid- and long-term implications. Management of congenital anomalies can be time sensitive with delays resulting in permanent disability,...

Cloacal exstrophy is a rare malformation that presents as a lower midline abdominal wall defect which affects the gastrointestinal and genitourinary systems. The components of cloacal exstrophy characteristically include omphalocele, exstrophy of perineal structures, and imperforate anus. Most of these patients also have renal anomalies such as pelvic kidney, fused kidneys, or solitary kidneys. This congenital condition can also be associated with spinal issues, such as spinal dysraphism. When c...
