INTRODUCTION: A significant number of internationally adopted children have congenital birth defects. As a specialist center for colorectal diagnoses, we evaluate such children with an anorectal malformation (ARM) and have found that a significant number need a reoperation. Knowledge of the common complications following ARM surgery has led us to develop treatment algorithms for patients with unknown past medical and surgical history, a situation typically encountered in the adopted population...

Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome (PJS) is an autosomal dominant intestinal polyposis syndrome characterised by the presence of hamartomatous polyps and mucocutaneous pigmentation. Prolapse of the polyps through the anus is an infrequent manifestation in children with PJS, and this complication is extremely rare in adult patients. We report the case of a 30-year-old man recently diagnosed with PJS who was seen at the emergency department because of the abrupt onset of severe anal pain with a foreign body sensation in the anal canal and rectal bleeding...

INTRODUCTION: Objectively evaluating the lack of bowel control (fecal incontinence) continues to be a challenge. Many have attempted to measure the severity of fecal incontinence and to evaluate its impact on the quality of life by developing standardized scoring systems. Some of these systems have been validated but none have achieved widespread use and all have limitations in evaluating pediatric patients. METHODS: A review of the literature was performed looking for validated scoring systems of fecal incontinence that are currently used for either adult or pediatric patients...

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is a chronic psychiatric disorder characterized by obsessions and compulsions. Early-onset OCD is one of the most common mental illnesses of children and adolescents, with a prevalence of 1% to 3%. It is related to worse lifespan symptoms and prognosis. Therefore, the treatment of OCD in children and adolescent has gained importance. If it is not treated successfully, the compulsive behaviors may cause extreme stress for children and their parents. Although minor complications of OCD are commonly observed, major complications are considerably rare due to the nature of compulsive behaviors...

Rectal prolapse is rare in children and usually benign. However, there are various diseases that can be associated with it, such as cystic fibrosis or other causes of increased abdominal pressure. Here, we review the various underlying conditions that pediatricians or pediatric gastroenterologists should consider in the case of rectal prolapse. We report on three cases of children with a rectal prolapse and intra-abdominal tumors. Current recommendations and practice do not include a systematic check via abdominal imaging in cases of rectal prolapse...

INTRODUCTION: Colorectal polyps usually present with rectal bleeding and are associated with increased risk of colorectal carcinoma. Evaluation and management in resource-poor areas present unique challenges. PRESENTATION OF CASE: This 15 year-old boy presented with 9 years of painless rectal bleeding and 2 years of a prolapsing rectal mass after passing stool. He had 3 nephews with similar symptoms. On clinical assessment and initial exam under anesthesia, an impression of a polyposis syndrome was made and a biopsy taken from the mass that revealed inflammatory polyps with no dysplasia...

Rectal prolapse is a herniation of the rectum through the anus. It is rare in children. When it does occur, it is usually prior to 4 years of age and due to anatomical variants. A few conditions predispose children to rectal prolapse, the most common being constipation. Cystic fibrosis used to be commonly associated with rectal prolapse, but with the advent of cystic fibrosis newborn screening, this association is no longer as frequently seen. Many recent case reports, detailed in this chapter, describe conditions previously unknown to be associated with rectal prolapse...

BACKGROUND: Several techniques have been described for the surgical correction of rectal prolapse without any clear advantage for one technique over the other. We evaluated the use of laparoscopic suture rectopexy (LSRP) as a modality of treatment for rectal prolapse in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Prospective data were collected for all children who presented to our center between 2011 and 2014 and required surgery for rectal prolapse. All children underwent LSRP with fixation of the mobilized rectum to the sacral promontory with multiple nonabsorbable sutures...

Many techniques are described to manage recurrent rectal prolapse in children, including repeated Thiersch stitch, phenol injections, Delorme and Altemeier procedures, and rectopexy. We describe a case of successful treatment of rectal prolapse by placing three Thiersch sutures circumferentially along the anal canal--a simple and novel modification of a well-known procedure. An 8-year-old boy with full-thickness rectal prolapse was treated with laxatives to no avail. He was subsequently treated with phenol-in-almond-oil injection and insertion of a 1/0PDS Thiersch suture...

PURPOSE: Rectal prolapse (RP) beyond infancy is challenging, and despite surgical correction, recurrences are not uncommon, suggesting that underlying contributing processes may have a role. This study highlights a previously poorly recognized relationship between RP in older children and behavioral/psychiatric disorders (BPD). We describe the incidence of recurrence and use of behavioral, psychological and physical therapeutic tactics in a multidisciplinary approach to pediatric RP. METHODS: A retrospective 20-year review of RP in children >3 years of age was adopted...

AIM: We present an operating technique inspired from the Orr-Loygue mesh rectopexy adapted for laparoscopy, and detail the technical steps that differ from laparoscopic posterior suture rectopexy more commonly described in the paediatric literature. METHOD: We present a retrospective study of all children who underwent a modified Orr-Loygue procedure for recurrent complete rectal prolapse from 1999 to 2012 after failure of conservative treatment. Pathological conditions, technical details of the procedure (excision of the Douglas pouch, use of a prerectal non-absorbable mesh to suspend the rectum to the presacral fascia and promontory avoiding any tension on the rectal wall) and postoperative results were reviewed...
