Objective To study the expressions of Ghrelin and its receptor (GHSR) in the patients with Hirschsprungs disease (HD).Methods Eighteen patients who were diagnosed with HD and underwent transanal pull-through procedure were recruited in this study.The resected colon was collected to study the expressions of Ghrelin and GHSR by immunohistochemistry staining.Results Ghrelin and GHSR protein were consistently expressed in the glandular epithelium and villi of the ganglionic colon.In the aganglionic… Expand
