Abstract

We managed long-segment aganglionosis in two neonates by performing colonic irrigation through an indwelling transanal catheter for 65 and 30 days, respectively, until a laparoscopy-assisted primary pull-through operation could be performed. The catheter was fixed by tying it to the tubes, criss-crossed at the anus, and securing the opposite ends of the tubes away from the diaper. This form of management with our devised method of transanal catheter fixation and simple frequent tube washouts improved the preoperative quality of life of both the babies and their parents remarkably.
