Hirschsprung’s Disease: Modern Treatment Principles

 
Abstract:

This post is also available in: enEnglish slSlovenščina (Slovenian)

Hirschsprung’s disease is a congenital anomaly characterized by the absence of intramural ganglion cells of the bowel. The length of the aganglionic segment varies. Aganglionosis is most frequently confined to the rectosigmoid colon. The recognition of the disease early in the neonatal period and modern management paradigms result in excellent functional results with minimal morbidity and mortality.
