ABSTRACT: Transanal endorectal pull through procedure was done on 10 new borns with Hirschsprung's disease involving the rectosigmoid region. The age varies from 19-32 days in 7 boys and 3 girls. The disease was diagnosed in these babies by Barium Enema, 24 hrs follow through pictures and biopsy. The diagnosis was confirmed by a small left lower quadrant incision and a marker was placed in the transitional zone of the sigmoid colon. The rest of the procedure was completed through transanal approach and a single layer coloanal anastomotis was completed. All these babies are doing well for 6 months to 1 year without any major complications. We are awaiting long term follow up results.
