Forty eight patients of HD were treated with modified Duhamel procedure. Forty six patients had short segmentand 2 had long segment disease. Spur remnant was seen in 8 patients. Persistent constipation (n=6), soiling (n=2) and incontinence (n=2) were seen in long term follow up. The procedure is technically easy and gives satisfactory long term results for definitive treatment of HD.
