Long-term complications of modified Soave radical correction in the treatment of Hirschsprung's disease and its influences on life quality

Objective: To investigate the long-term complications of modified Soave radical correction in the treatment of Hirschsprung's disease and its influences on life quality.

Method: 50 child patients with Hirschsprung's disease treated in our hospital from January 2014 to September 2017 were selected as objects of study and received modified Soave radical correction. The long-term complications, anus function and life quality of all patients were observed. TACQOL scale was used for life quality.

Results: There were 8 cases with long-term complications after operation, and the incidence was 16%. The life quality scores of child patients were still significantly different compared with those of normal children (P<0.05). Moreover, the excellent-good rate of anus function was up to 86%.

Conclusion: In the treatment of Hirschsprung's disease, modified Soave radical correction can reduce the incidence rate of postoperative long-term complications, and help shorten the recovery time of defecation function and anus function after operation, thus gradually improving children's life quality.
