Recent Advances on the Surgical Management of Common Paediatric Gastrointestinal Diseases
常見兒科胃腸道疾病的外科療法新進展

SW Wong, KKY Wong, SCL Lin, PKH Tam


Abstract

Diseases of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract remain a major part of the paediatric surgical caseload. Hirschsprung's disease (HSCR) and imperforate anus are two indexed congenital conditions which require specialists' management, while gastro-oesophageal reflux (GOR) is a commonly encountered problem in children. Recent advances in science have further improved our understanding of these conditions at both the genetic and molecular levels. In addition, the increasingly widespread use of laparoscopic techniques has revolutionised the way these conditions are treated in the paediatric population. Here, an updated overview of the pathogenesis of these diseases is provided. Furthermore a review of our experience in the use of laparoscopic approaches in the treatment is discussed.

胃腸道疾病是小兒外科常見的疾病。巨結腸和肛門閉鎖是兩個需要專家治療的先天性疾病,而胃食管反流在小兒中很常見。隨著科學的進展,使我們在遺傳和分子水平對這些疾病有了進一步的認識。此外,小兒腹腔鏡技術的廣泛開展也已改變了傳統的治療方式。就此,我們首先對這些疾病的發生做最新的概述,並對我們運用腹腔鏡方法治療的經驗進行總結。
