Abstract

A rural tertiary care medical center performed 29 reconstructions for Hirschsprung's disease between 1983 and 1992. Long-term follow-up indicates excellent results. The vast majority of patients have maintained continence, are stooling once a day, and require no aids to facilitate stooling. These patients are assessed in relation to sex mean age, location of transition zone, presence of any associated anomalies, continence, frequency of stooling, and aids required to facilitate stooling.
