This study aims to evaluate the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) for children as well as parents’ satisfaction 5–7 years after transanal pull-through operation of Hirschsprung’s disease.
The PedsQL™ 4.0—Core Measurement Model—and the PedsQL™ 3.0 Healthcare Satisfaction Generic Module were used to evaluate the quality of life and parents’ satisfaction, respectively. Parents of 53 children who were operated by transanal pull-through operation 5–7 years earlier were included in the study.
The HRQoL of children was generally good. The mean scores were 87.3, 95.5, 92.3 and 93.2 % for physical, emotional, social and school functioning, respectively. Overflow incontinence was significantly affecting physical (ß = −.261), emotional (ß = −.299), social (ß = −.42) and school functioning (ß = −.534). Constipation significantly affected emotional (ß = −.742), social (ß = −.108) and school (ß = −.282) functioning. Failure to thrive was significantly affecting social (ß = −.215) and school functioning (ß = −.176). Age at time of surgery was affecting physical, emotional, social and school functioning (ß = −.686, −.627, −.865 and −.907, respectively). Parents were generally satisfied from the healthcare service with an overall satisfaction of 90.7 with the least satisfaction (79.8) in family inclusion category.
Transanal pull-through operation disease showed a good postoperative long-term HRQoL. Overflow incontinence and age at time of surgery had a significant negative effect on all the aspects of children’s HRQoL. Parental satisfaction was good and could be improved by more family inclusion.
