Objective: To analyze and compare the efficacy of laparoscopic modified Soave operation and open radical resection in the treatment of Hirschsprung's disease.
They were grouped into an observation group in which patients were treated by laparoscopic modified Soave operation and open radical resection and a control group in which patients were treated by open radical resection.
Patients in the observation group were treated by laparoscopic modified Soave operation according to the following procedures.
11,12,13 Laparoscopic modified Soave operation can provide a wide field; surgical doctors can observe all corners of the abdominal cavity to confirm the position of lesions through the wide field, which can improve the accuracy of surgery and avoid unnecessary operative wound and cracking of wound.
Laparoscopic modified Soave operation changes traditional surgical approach, but maintains the principle of typical Hirschsprung's disease radical surgery; it is featured by mild surgical invasion, small scar, fast recovery, mild disturbance to abdominal cavity and low incidence of adhesive intestinal obstruction.
In this study, the observation group in which children were treated by laparoscopic modified Soave operation had shorter duration of operation, less intraoperative blood loss, shorter time to recovery of peristalsis and lower postoperative Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) score compared to the observation group in which children were treated by the traditional open radical resection, fully suggesting the superiority of laparoscopic modified Soave operation.
Laparoscopic modified Soave operation resulted in mild trauma, small changes of vital signs in perioperative period, rapid recovery, little disturbance in the abdominal cavity and low incidence of adhesive intestinal obstruction in the treatment of Hirschsprung's disease.
