Table 3 Comparison of HAEC incidence after pull-through between two cut-off values of HAEC scoring system and its association with patients’ characteristics

From: Postoperative enterocolitis assessment using two different cut-off values in the HAEC score in Hirschsprung patients undergoing Duhamel and Soave pull-through

  Sex p-value OR (95% CI) Aganglionosis type p-value OR (95% CI)
Male Female Short-segment Long-segment
Cut-off ≥10 HAEC (n, %) 12/14 (86) 2/14 (14) 0.47 1.8 (0.4–9.0) 12/14 (86) 2/14 (14) 0.53 1.7 (0.3–8.3)
Cut-off ≥4 HAEC (n, %) 33/38 (87) 5/38 (13) 0.09 2.9 (0.9–8.4) 30/38 (79) 8/38 (21) 0.91 0.9 (0.3–2.7)
  1. *, p-values were calculated using Fisher Exact or Chi-square tests; CI, confidence interval; HAEC, Hirschsprung-associated enterocolitis; OR, odds ratio
