Hirschsprung disease is a congenital abnormality due to the lack of migration of neural crest cells in myenteric and submucosal plexi of the bowel wall. The consequence is the absence of p...
Hirschsprung disease is a genetic condition caused by lack of nerve cells in varying lengths of the intestines. This study will investigate the complex genetic basis of the disease, which ...
Prospective, randomized, controlled trial to test if post-operative administration of probiotics in HD patients will lead to a reduction in the occurrence of HAEC.
Necrotizing enterocolitis is the most common gastroenterological emergency in neonatology. Its mortality is high, ranging from 15 to 30%. Prematurity is the main risk factor for necrotizin...
The study is designed to determine if enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) principles could provide benefit for pediatric patients undergoing radical surgery for Hirschsprung's Disease (...
RET, the receptor for the GDNF family ligands, is the most frequently mutated gene in congenital aganglionic megacolon or Hirschsprung's disease (HSCR). The leading cause of mortality in HSCR is HSRC-...
There is a lack of an agreed Hirschsprung-associated enterocolitis (HAEC) definition. In 2009, a HAEC score was proposed for the diagnosis of HAEC episodes. Our aim was to apply the HAEC score on H...
Oesophageal atresia with or without tracheo-oesophageal fistula, ileal atresia and Hirschsprung's disease are surgical malformations of the gastrointestinal tract typically diagnosed early in the neon...
The miR-214 has been reported to be associated with various diseases, but its involvement in the pathophysiology of Hirschsprung disease (HSCR) is almost completely unexplored.
Hirschsprung disease is a rare congenital disease typically requiring surgical treatment during childhood. Quality of life and social condition at adult age can be impaired by disease-specific sequela...
ENTEROCOLITIS with extensive ulceration (ULCER) and NECROSIS. It is observed primarily in LOW BIRTH WEIGHT INFANT.
A common inhabitant of the colon flora in human infants and sometimes in adults. It produces a toxin that causes pseudomembranous enterocolitis (ENTEROCOLITIS, PSEUDOMEMBRANOUS) in patients receiving antibiotic therapy.
Dilatation of the COLON, often to alarming dimensions. There are various types of megacolon including congenital megacolon in HIRSCHSPRUNG DISEASE, idiopathic megacolon in CONSTIPATION, and TOXIC MEGACOLON.
Congenital MEGACOLON resulting from the absence of ganglion cells (aganglionosis) in a distal segment of the LARGE INTESTINE. The aganglionic segment is permanently contracted thus causing dilatation proximal to it. In most cases, the aganglionic segment is within the RECTUM and SIGMOID COLON.
An acute form of MEGACOLON, severe pathological dilatation of the COLON. It is associated with clinical conditions such as ULCERATIVE COLITIS; CROHN DISEASE; AMEBIC DYSENTERY; or CLOSTRIDIUM ENTEROCOLITIS.
