Abstract

In spite of the technical advances in the surgical repair of anorectal malformations (ARM) that have occurred over the last 20 years, complications that require a secondary procedure are still common. Surprisingly, this need is not isolated to the group of patients with very complex malformations. Instead, it spans the entire spectrum of malformations seen, and in fact is quite common for the relatively benign malformations. © 2006 Springer-Verlag.
