Abstract

Anorectal Malformations (ARM) include a wide spectrum of anomalies, ranging from anal and rectal agenesis (usually associated with a recto-urethral, rectovaginal or recto-vestibular fistula) to ano-cutaneous fistula. On the basis of studies on the anatomy of the muscular structures contained in the pelvic cavity and on the physiology of the mechanisms which regulate the continence, many different techniques have been performed to allow a surgical treatment for the ARMs and to obtain post-operative results as nearer as possible to normality, that is to an adequate colic motility and a defecation control. In 2000, a new surgical technique for high and intermediate ARMs has been introduced, the laparoscopically assisted ano-rectal pull-through (LAARP) according to Georgeson. At the Department of Pediatric Surgery, Bologna University, from 2000 to nowadays, we have treated with LAARP 7 cases of high ARMs, all male patients and with colostomy. The average age at operation was between 2 and 10 months.
