Table 2 Comparison of API between ARM neonates with associated anomalies and controls stratified by subjects’ sex

From: Comparison and impact of associated anomalies on the anal position index in neonates with anorectal malformation

  API (mean ± SD) p-value
Male
 Controls 0.48 ± 0.02 Ref.
 ARM without associated anomalies 0.49 ± 0.05 0.61
 ARM with associated anomalies 0.42 ± 0.07 0.005*
Female
 Controls 0.35 ± 0.06 Ref.
 ARM without associated anomalies 0.35 ± 0.01 0.73
 ARM with associated anomalies 0.39 ± 0.16 0.91
