Contrast enema findings in patients presenting with poor functional outcome after primary repair for Hirschsprung disease

Pediatric Radiology, 04/30/2012

Multiple anatomical and pathological complications exist that can lead to bowel dysfunction in children after repair of Hirschsprung disease. Little recent literature exists regarding the radiographic findings in children. The authors had the opportunity to review a substantial series of these children, describe the contrast enema findings in these difficult cases and correlate them with operative findings. Radiologic evaluation is key to assessing such patients; it defines the potential anatomical problem with the pull–through and facilitates surgical planning.
