Persistent cloacal malformation in children

What is it about?

Among children with persistent cloacal malformation the choice of the surgical method depended on the cloacal canal length and the «maturity» of vagina walls. During the early postoperative period, most children had no complications. The mortality rate amounted to 4,5 %. The treatment efficiency was assessed at the age of 3–7 years old.

Why is it important?

The children with a shorter cloacal canal displayed better results of the treatment than those with a longer cloacal canal, with fecal matter retention registered in 66.7% and 41.7% of the patients, respectively; urine retention was observed in 77.8% and 75.0% of the children, respectively.
