This is a text article in which I have looked at the literature relating the age at operation with the post-operative complication of Faecal Incontinence. The reason for this was that I was involved in a legal case where a child was not diagnosed with Hirschsprung's Disease until 3 years of age. Subsequently he had faecal incintinence (not overflow). The question was asked by the lawyers 'would early diagnosis as a neonate' have avoided this problem? What do you think?
