Operative Complications Low Anomalies

Early complications after neonatal treatment of low anomalies are uncommon. However, local complications may occur later and are usually caused by inappropriate long-term follow-up and care. A typical problem is postoperative anal stenosis, which can be prevented by gradual postoperative dilatations and careful follow-up of the patient. Untreated anal stenosis may cause secondary megacolon, which may require operative treatment [2,3,11]. In some cases the rectal blind pouch is primarily so ectatic that it is symptomatic without any associated anal stricture or stenosis [11,12].
