Mlm. I want to ask. My friend has a history of atresia ani. Until adulthood he could not hold back his bowel movements. I want to ask, does it affect the offspring later? And what are the risks if they are handled slowly?

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Atresia ani, also known as imperforate anus, is a congenital disorder where the child is born without anal cavity. This condition will be treated by performing anal formation surgery on children. One of the long-term problems that can occur in patients with a history of atresia is bowel obstruction, can be constipation, can also be incontinence (unable to hold bowel movements). Actually the problem of incontinence experienced by your friend is more related to rectal repair surgery than the condition of atresia ani itself, so this condition will not affect her offspring (the incontinence is not a condition that can be inherited genetically from children).


The condition of atresia ani itself is also a condition that occurs spontaneously and randomly, meaning that anyone can be born with this condition, not affected by heredity. Parents who have atresia ani may not necessarily have children who will also experience atresia ani and healthy parents also may not be able to give birth to children with atresia ani.


If the condition of incontinence is left, there is actually no particular danger that will occur. This only affects the sufferer's self-confidence.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
