Abstract

Anorectal manometry, colonic manometry, and defecography help in understanding the pathophysiology of defecation disorders in children. The majority of patients with abnormal colonic manometry underwent TAC-IRA. There was no statistical correlation between individual investigations (anorectal manometry, colonic manometry, and defecography) with surgical intervention (P > 0.35). TAC-IRA may be safe and useful intervention in a subset of patients when other treatment options have failed.
