Abstract

Computerised tomography and magnetic resonance tomography were performed in nine faecally incontinent patients more than eight years after rectoplasty for high imperforate anus. No statistically significant correlation was found between function, i. e. degree of faecal incontinence, and anatomical findings. Thus, in spite of a detailed demonstration of the post-operative anatomy, the information does not seem to be directly applicable in indicating a way to reoperate for faecal incontinence in this group of patients.
