Hirschsprung disease (HD) is the most prevalent surgical disease among children. It occurs due to lack of ganglia cells in the distal colon. The most common treatment is surgery which is performed using pull through technique. The aim of this study was to compare the new and old pull through surgery techniques. This randomized control trial was conducted in 2014 in southern Iran. HD was diagnosed by history, clinical examination, barium enema and manometry findings. Continuous sampling was used to select the participants. The age and condition severity of patients of both groups were matched. The cuffmuscle will not be damaged in the new method and duration of hospitalization, intra-operative bleeding, and surgery duration of both groups will be collected. All patients were followed up for one year to evaluate constipation, encorpresis, surgical site infection, hypertrophic scar, fecal leakage, and early or late enterocolitis. The difference between anesthesia time, number of patients who needed transfusion, or number of those who encountered constipation, early of late enterocolitis was significant. The anesthesia time, transfusion requirement, and the frequency of late enterocolitis was lower in the new method. The frequency of constipation and early enterocolitis was higher in the new method. The difference between other factors was not significant. The new trans-anal pull through method is more efficient and has better results and needs more attention and evaluation.
