Abstract:

The study conducted a retrospective and prospective analysis of 22 patients diagnosed with anorectal malformation between January 2009 and June 2016, continuing until June 2020, in the surgical departments of the Regional Hospitals of Sunyani, Wa, and Tamale Teaching Hospital in northern Ghana. The findings revealed that 59.1% of cases exhibited low birth weights, with a predominance of male cases. Associated malformations were present in 35.2% of cases, affecting the gastrointestinal and skeletal systems. High anorectal malformation was observed in 37% of male cases. The most frequently performed surgical technique was posterior sagittal anorectoplasty, and 50% of the children underwent surgery before their first birthday. Postoperative complications were recorded in 31.2% of cases, with a mortality rate of 19.1%. In conclusion, the overall outcomes were deemed satisfactory.
