Background:-Anorectal malformation is a congenital anomaly of different varieties and its correction needs good experience , knowledge about this varieties and specific surgical tools, otherwise the child may lose his the only chance to live normally without disastrous complication like incontinence.
Objective:-assessment of the advantage of this procedure in management of anorectal malformations and the percentage for anal continence.
Patients and methods:-. This study was carried out in the child's central teaching hospital in Baghdad total number (70) cases were included in the study, 37 males and 33 females: aged 7 days to 6 years. They attended the hospital between October 1998-october 2004.
•Male defect included:¬
1) Low type ....5 cases No colostomy needed.
2) Intermediate type.... 23 cases. needed colostomy
3) High type.... 9 cases needed colostomy.
•Female defects:¬
1) Imperforate anus with vestibular fistula---31 cases.
2) Imperforate anus without fistula 2 cases.
Results:¬ From the study we gain the following results:- all the male patients with low and intermediate types 28 cases (40%) show 100% continence. All female patients with imperforated anus with vestibular fistula and without fistula 33 cases (47%) show 100% continence. The combination of male and female patients show 61 patients of 70 show 100%continence in a percentage of 87%. The nine cases (12.85%) with recto bladder neck fistula show poor continence due to their bad sacral contour associated with the poor development of pelvic muscles sphincter. This result was revealed from follow-up together with the presence of external sphincter muscle contraction which occurs during digital PR examination or by the use of surgical dilators.
Conclusion:¬ From the study we found that this procedure gives high percentage of continence and should be used instead of other procedures.

Background: anorectal malformation represent a spectrum of defects, which may be benign, non complex with a good functional prognosis, to more severe malformations involving the genitourinary system with poor prognosis for bowel and urinary function. Aim: to assess fecal continence after posterior sagittal anorectoplasty (PSARP) with its relation to the post-operative time and to describe the complications of PSARP. Patients and method: this prospective study was conducted in the pediatric surgery department of Al-Kadhymia teaching hospital. The duration of the study was five years from 1st January 2009 to the 31st December 2013.Kelly's methods was applied for assessing the grade of continence after 6 months, one year, and two years after closure of colostomy. Also we describe the complications of PSARP after closure colostomy. PSARP was performed according to Pena method & the results were evaluated after colostomy closure. Results: forty patients with high type imperforate anus were included in this study. They were 25 males (62.5%) and 15 females (37.5%). Genitourinary anomalies were the commonest associated anomalies. There was no accidental defecation in 12 cases (30%) after six months, and 15cases (37.5%) after two years, while there was constant defecation in 4 patients (10%) after 6 months , in 3 patients(7.5%) after 1 year, and in two patients (5%) after two years. Wound infection was the commonest complication and occurred in 8 patients (20%), followed by rectal prolapse in 7 patients (17.5%). Conclusion:Initial poor results should not discourage the surgeon as the condition of the patient and grade of the continence keeps improving as child grows.
