Laparoscopy of Anorectal Malformations

What is it about?

Operative correction of anorectal malformations (ARMs) remains a challenge in pediatric surgery. The study aimed to evaluate the outcomes of laparoscopic treatment of ARM in children.

Why is it important?

Our experience confirms that laparoscopic-assisted anorectal pull-through enabled complete correction of ARM in the meanwhile avoiding damage to the rectum and anus. Also, the technique of double bipolar myostimulation of muscle complex in laparoscopic ARM might lead to these better results.
