Hi Tri,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Cloaca is usually used to describe a disorder in which estuaries from the digestive tract, urinary tract, and reproductive tract (often in women) are combined into one opening. This condition can be classified as anorectal malformation or imperforate anus. It is not yet clear what causes this disorder. However, many experts say this condition occurs associated with disorders of anal development in the fifth to seventh week of pregnancy. Not infrequently, sufferers of the imperforate anus will also experience other birth defects, both in the digestive tract, or other organ systems, such as the heart, spine, kidneys, locomotor, and so on.


The definitive treatment of the imperforate anus is done by surgery. This operation is intended to make the digestive tract (faeces) take place at the right place, namely the anus. Depending on the type of disorder, there are conditions that require immediate surgery (CITO), but some can be postponed. There is no specific limit on what the maximum age for this operation is. However, the faster the surgery is performed, the higher the chance of success. By doing so, the risk of dangerous complications can be minimized. Consult directly with your doctor, pediatrician, or pediatric surgeon regarding your baby's condition. Because, determining the best time and method of surgery can vary depending on the condition of your baby.


Generally, imperforate anus surgery is carried out through several stages, namely:

Making a stoma (ie a temporary faecal discharge, usually in the stomach)
Rectal administration in the right area, ie in the middle, is connected to the anal sphincter
Stoma closure

In some cases, surgery can also be carried out shorter, namely simply by moving the rectum to the right area. Of course, this needs to be adjusted according to the type of abnormality that occurs.


With proper treatment, imperforate anus sufferers can generally return to their activities and grow normally without significant obstacles.


Hope this helps ...
