A one-year prospective cohort study evaluated the factors affecting colostomy closure outcome in children

Author(s): Hiroaki Kobayashi*

Pediatric surgical services frequently perform colostomy closure. Typically, it is performed in cases of anorectal malformation, Hirschsprung's illness, and trauma. Significant issues are connected to it to evaluate the impact of perioperative variables on the success of colostomy closure in children. All children who had colostomy closure at Tikur Anbessa Specialized Hospital and Menelik II Referral Hospital between January 2019 and February 2020 are the subjects of this prospective observational study. The following perioperative factors were noted: demographic information, the child's nutritional status, the length of the mechanical bowel preparation, the prophylactic antibiotic, the type of anastomosis, the specifics of the operation, and other perioperative factors. Patients were then monitored for complications after surgery. Using SPSS 23 for data entry and analysis, perioperative factors were examined for associations with outcome using 2 tests. Statistical significance was defined as a p value 0.05.
