The purpose of the present study is to determine the incidence and sources of probable errors during this process. Materials and Methods This cross-sectional study included all patients who were admitted from 2000 to 2010 in Dr Sheikh Children Hospital and had undergone IOFS for diagnosis of Hirschsprung�s disease. Results This cross-sectional study included all patients who were admitted from 2000 to 2010 in Dr Sheikh Children Hospital and had undergone IOFS for diagnosis of Hirschsprung�s disease.
