The Gastrointestinal Tract

Contrast studies showed blind-ending colon in 10 out of 12 children, malrotation in 5, large bowel duplication, appendiceal duplication, and short bowel. Hus-mann et al. accurately measured small bowel length in 22 children with cloacal exstrophy. In two children, bowel length was less than 70 cm (normal >200 cm) [19]. Soffer measured colonic length in 21 patients with cloacal exstrophy and noted that 12 had a normal-lengths colon. In four patients the lengths ranged from 20 to 70 cm, while in two patients the colon was less than 20 cm in length [26].
