Abstract

Despite significant technical advances in the surgical repair of anorectal malformations, patients sometimes require reoperations when there has been an inadequate preoperative evaluation, in order to repair technical problems that occurred during the definitive repair, and when pitfalls in the postoperative management, both in the short and long term, are encountered. Complications are not isolated to patients with complex malformations, but include the entire spectrum of malformations, and in fact are more common in the but relatively benign malformations. © 2008 Humana Press.
