Pelvic AnoRectal Care Program (PARC)

I recently had the opportunity to hear a terrific lecture by Kathleen Hoff regarding efforts to achieve continence for children, especially those with anorectal malformations. This blog entry has abbreviated/summarized the presentation. Though not intentional, some important material is likely to have been omitted; in addition, transcription errors are possible as well.

Key points (my notes followed by screenshots of some of the slides):

How to reach PARC team:

Data from PARC: Red color indicates use of enemas, light brown indicates use of laxatives
Products for enemas
Data showing increasing use of antegrade enemas in older children
and those with moderate and complex malformations
