Abstract

Anorectal malformations (ARM) and cloacal anomalies are rare and complex malformations of the lower gastrointestinal and genitourinary tract. They affect approximately 1:3,500-1:5,000 live births. They may occur in isolation or in association with abnormalities of the urogenital, cardiovascular and skeletal systems as well as with the vertebral, anal, cardiac, tracheoesophageal, renal and limb abnormalities (VACTERL) association. Treatment has traditionally focussed on achieving urinary and faecal continence with preservation of renal function. Diversion of the bowel may be required. It will often be possible to create a continent bladder, though emptying may require intermittent catheterisation. A continent rectum is more difficult and many children remain clean only by a process of controlled constipation or continue with a colostomy. Faecal continence remains a challenge and is achieved in about 60% of patients. © 2006 Springer-Verlag.
