Hirschsprung’s disease has been one of the main target disorders in pediatric surgeons for long time. A variety of procedures have been developed to perform a definitive operation for Hirschsprung’s disease including three standard procedures: the Swenson procedure [1], the Duhamel procedure [2], and the Soave procedure [3].
