Anal strictures in children who have had anorectoplasties for anorectal malformation, although largely preventable, can be of two types; at the skin level or more extensive in nature. Skin level strictures are preventable and usually treatable by anal dilations but require surgery when intractable. We recently introduced a modification of the Heineke-Mikulicz technique to treat this problem, able to be performed in an ambulatory setting and without a protective colostomy. The aim of this article is to describe the technique and outcome in a series of patients.
