Colostomy type in anorectal malformations: 10-years experience.

Abstract:

AIM:The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of colostomy type on morbidity during the treatment of anorectal malformations. METHODS:Sixty-eight infants (male: female ratio 1.3:1) with anorectal malformations that required colostomy were treated in our clinics during the period 1991-2001. Of these patients, 26 had received a loop colostomy: 14 of these underwent posterior sagittal anorectoplasty (PSARP) at the age of 9-12 months (Group A), and 12 underwent PSARP at the age of 2-4 months (Group B). Forty-two infants received a separated-stomas colostomy and underwent PSARP at the age of 9-12 months (Group C). The incidence of complications among groups was compared using the 2 sided Fisher's exact test. RESULTS:Eight cases from group A were complicated with prolapse of the stomas, perianal wound infection, pull-through dehiscence, and anal fibrotic stricture. The only complication observed in groups B and C was perianal wound infection, which occurred in 1 case from each group. A statistically significant difference was observed in the incidence of complication between groups A and C (p<0.001) and between groups A and B (p=0.014). The results from groups B and C did not differ significantly (p=0.398). When the cases complicated with colostomy prolapse were removed from the statistical analysis, groups A and C still differed significantly (p=0.001) but groups A and B did not (p=0.069). CONCLUSIONS:As the incidence of complications increases with time after a loop colostomy, we encourage either an early corrective procedure or the modification into separated-stomas colostomy (SSC) before PSARP is performed for those cases that would involve definitive surgery in late infancy.
