An abnormal density of myenteric neurons is a putative cause of intestinal pseudo-obstruction. Quantification of myenteric ganglion cells may be necessary to establish hyper- or hypoganglionosis, but published norms are very discordant. We investigated how observer bias and tissue sampling affect the accuracy and reproducibility of myenteric neuron counts(More)
Intestinal neuronal dysplasia type B (IND) denotes an increased proportion of hyperplastic submucosal ganglia, as resolved histochemically in 15-μm-thick frozen sections. IND has been reported proximal to the aganglionic segment in patients with Hirschsprung disease (HSCR) and is putatively associated with a higher rate of postsurgical dysmotility. We(More)
