21-month-old Child With Frequent Diarrhea And Rectal Blisters With A History Of Atresia Ani?
Hello, I want to ask. My child has a history of atresia ani. After the surgery, I was 6 months old, now my son is 21 months old, but until now he has frequent diarrhea and abrasions in the anal canal. Or my child’s diet is wrong. Please answer. Thank you
Good evening, thanks for the question
Anorectal malformations are congenital abnormalities found in the digestive tract of the anus and rectum. One of them that is often found is not the formation of the anal canal or called atresia ani.
Management of atresia ani depends on the location of the disorder, are there other complications such as fistulae, and sex. In cases of abnormality, a high location must be performed colostomy before a definitive surgery is performed, namely PSARP. In the low location abnormalities can be done directly PSARP action. After the PSARP is performed and the surgical wound has healed, the colostomy will be closed. Then the busination action will be taken so that the new anal canal has been made into a patent.
The rate of recovery after an operative action is actually dependent on the type of disorder suffered. There are some side effects that may still be found after surgery, for example the most frequent is difficult CHAPTER or constipation. Other conditions of gastrointestinal disorders can also occur, where it is influenced by the type of abnormalities detected early.
Therefore, if there are symptoms such as diarrhea that occur in your child, a further examination should be done to the doctor to evaluate the current condition and plan for further action.
Thank you so this information can help you
