Table 4 Association between patients’ characteristics and HAEC (cut-off ≥ 4) after Duhamel and Soave surgeries

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
Duhamel HAEC (n, %) 13/16 (81) 3/16 (19) 0.28 2.3 (0.5–10.6) 13/16 (81) 3/16 (19) 0.63 0.7 (0.1–3.7)
Soave HAEC (n, %) 20/22 (91) 2/22 (9) 0.23 2.9 (0.5–17.1) 17/22 (77) 5/22 (23) 0.73 1.3 (0.3–5.0)
  1. *, p-values were calculated using Fisher Exact or Chi-square tests; CI, confidence interval; HAEC, Hirschsprung-associated enterocolitis; OR, odds ratio
