  • Management of undescended testes: a comparative study in England and
    • Authors: Peiris; Hirantha D.; Lakshminarayanan, Bhanumathi; Osifo, Osarumwense D.; Lakhoo, Kokila
      Abstract: image Objective: The aim of our study was to determine the timing of referrals and the outcome of undescended testes (UDT) over a 4-year period in a tertiary centre in England, and to compare this with a similar centre in Nigeria. Background data: Cryptorchidism is a recognized cause of infertility and a key risk factor for testicular malignancy. Current recommendations are that orchidopexy be performed between 12 and 18 months of age; however, there is no consensus on this. Materials and methods: Data were obtained for orchidopexies performed between 2003 and 2007 from a tertiary referral centre in England. A standardized proforma was used to collect data into an Excel database, which was analysed and compared with data from a similar centre in Nigeria. Results: Eighty-eight patients from a tertiary referral centre in England underwent surgery for UDT. Fifty-six (63.6%) patients were referred and 38 (43.2%) patients were operated on within 2 years of age. Doctors and health visitors accounted for 69 (78.5%) referrals to the tertiary centre. Data from Nigeria demonstrated that of the 61 cases, 13 (21%) patients presented and 11 (18%) patients were operated on by 24 months. Referral beyond 60 months of age in the English series was due to ascending testis, whereas in the Nigerian study, the delayed presentation was due to delayed referral from lack of knowledge of the condition. Conclusion: In England and Nigeria, there is a lack of definitive guidelines relating to the appropriate age of referral of patients with UDT. A structured care pathway is needed to enable early detection and definitive management.

  • A rare pediatric renal tumor: classic congenital mesoblastic nephroma: two
           cases and review of literature
    • Authors: Bendre; Pradnya S.; Dsouza, Flavia H.; Multani, Pooja V.
      Abstract: image Background: Mesoblastic nephroma (Boland’s tumor) is the most common benign renal tumor occurring in infants and neonates. The most common presentation is abdominal mass, but it can have varied presentations because of associated paraneoplastic syndromes. Majority of these tumors can be cured with surgical excision alone; however, long-term follow-up is required for recurrence or metastasis. Histopathologically, it is divided into two subtypes: classic and cellular. The less common cellular congenital mesoblastic nephromas have cellular elements in them and tend to have a more malignant potential. Patients and methods: Two patients were studied over a period of 2 years from June 2010 to June 2012. Results: By reporting two patients presenting in the infantile period with classic congenital mesoblastic nephromas, an attempt is made in this paper to characterize the clinical behavior of this variety of renal tumors. Hypertension and paraneoplastic syndromes can be associated with this tumor. Herein we compare our experience with other similar cases reported in the literature. Conclusion: When renal tumors occur in infancy or at neonatal age, mesoblastic nephroma should be kept in mind. Association of hypertension and paraneoplastic syndromes should be looked for. Surgery is usually curative and postoperative follow-up for recurrence is required, more so in cellular variety.

  • Intestinal obstruction caused by a Meckel’s diverticulum adherent to
           an infected urachal cyst
    • Authors: Nordholm-Carstensen; Andreas; Johansen, Lars S.
      Abstract: image Urachal remnant diseases are rare and frequently misdiagnosed, as the clinical presentation is similar to more common causes of intra-abdominal and pelvic disease. We report the rare case of a 1½-year-old boy with small-bowel obstruction caused by an adhesion band between a Meckel’s diverticulum and an infected urachal cyst. The condition was initially misdiagnosed and treated as a periappendiceal abscess on the basis of clinical examination and ultrasonography findings. In addition to the case report, we present an overview of urachal diseases.

  • A rare complication of the Sistrunk’s procedure in thyroglossal duct
           remnant: tracheal injury
    • Authors: Erikci; Volkan; Hosgör, Münevver
      Abstract: image Management of thyroglossal duct remnants (TGDRs) is a common clinical concern in childhood. A girl with an unusual complication of tracheal injury secondary to the Sistrunk’s procedure is presented and discussed with regard to the relevant literature on airway injuries during the procedure. Surgical resection is an optimal choice of therapy in TGDRs and may be associated with high morbidity, especially recurrence. Although the Sistrunk’s procedure is a safe and successful technique, life-threatening complications should be kept in mind during the management of TGDRs.

  • Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, an unusual presentation and rare
           association: case report and literature review
    • Authors: Hadad; Majd A.; Mallick, Mohammad S.
      Abstract: image Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (HPS) is a commonly encountered surgical condition that occurs in infancy, but not in neonates. This report describes a 10-day-old male patient with atypical presentation of HPS, with an incidental diagnosis of eventration of the left diaphragm. The symptoms were present since birth with nonprojectile, nonbilious vomiting and gastric distension. A contrast study showed a gastric outlet obstruction with the possibility of gastric volvulus. Emergency surgery established the diagnosis. To the best of our knowledge, the association of HPS with diaphragmatic defect and gastric volvulus is rare, and few cases have been reported in the literature.

  • Accessory spleen as lead point in intussusception
    • Authors: Houben; Christoph H.; Wong, Hei Y.; Lacambra, Mabel; Tam, Yuk H.
      Abstract: image A 15-year-old boy, who had an episode of abdominal colic 4 years earlier, presented now with a week-long episode of abdominal pain. A computed tomographic scan confirmed the presence of an intussusception. Surprisingly, the surgery identified an accessory spleen as the lead point. At 9 months follow-up, the young boy has had no further abdominal discomfort. This report adds accessory spleen to the list of very rare pathological lead points in intussusception.

  • Two-stage versus single-stage repair for severe hypospadias with moderate
    • Authors: Hassan; Mohamed E.
      Abstract: image IntroductionModern approach in hypospadias repair is to preserve the urethral plate if possible. The aim of the current study was to compare the final outcome for repair of severe hypospadias with moderate chordee using single-stage Snodgrass repair versus two-stage repair with dermal graft corporoplasty and to measure the degree of parent’s satisfaction for both procedures. Patients and methodsA retrospective review was performed for all cases of severe hypospadias during the period from February 2006 to February 2013. Cases of severe hypospadias were defined as proximal penile, penoscrotal, and scrotal. Moderate chordee was defined as a chordee between 30 and 50°. Exclusion criteria included chordee more than 50°, perineal hypospadias, and cases in whom the chordee was corrected by division of the urethral plate. Two-stage repair was performed with dermal graft corporoplasty and single-stage repair was performed using Snodgrass repair. ResultsA total of 39 patients were included in the study. The mean age at surgery for single-stage repair was 18 months versus 21 months for the two-stage repair. There was statistically significant less duration for completion of the surgical procedures for single-stage repair. Postoperative complications were 47 versus 12.5% for single-stage and two-stage repair, respectively, which was statistically significant. There was statistically significant better parents’ satisfaction for the two-stage repair. ConclusionRepair of severe hypospadias with moderate chordee using two-stage dermal graft corporoplasty was associated with statistically significant less postoperative complications and more parents’ satisfaction than single-stage Snodgrass urethroplasty repair.

  • Surgical treatment of postcircumcision trapped penis
    • Authors: Elbatarny; Akram M.
      Abstract: image Background/purposeTrapped penis refers to a phallus that has become entrapped by a dense cicatricial scar usually following circumcision. It is associated with cosmetic, psychosocial, voiding, and hygienic complications and concerns. Prompt treatment is usually required to alleviate concerns and prevent complications. The treatment is essentially surgical. This prospective study was carried out to report the surgical management of cases of trapped penis, the necessary steps/procedures needed, and the outcome of surgical repair, and parent satisfaction. Patients and methodsPatients with postcircumcision trapped penis indicated for surgical treatment were evaluated and managed. Evaluation included the age of patients, duration from circumcision, presenting complaints, predisposing conditions, surgical techniques, skin adequacy, and complications. The techniques used included scar excision, degloving, dermopexy, corporopexy, and skin coverage. Skin coverage was achieved by simple closure, split thickness skin graft (STSG), or scrotal flaps. One or more of the above-mentioned techniques were used depending on the individual characteristics of every case. The cases were evaluated for early complications, parent/patient satisfaction (evaluated subjectively), and recurrence. ResultsA total of 21 children were surgically managed during a 5-year period. The mean age at the time of correction was 28 months (range: 3–133 months). The most common presenting complaints were anxiety and hidden penis. The mean time between circumcision and presentation was 13.9 months (range: 1–117 months). The techniques used for repair included simple scar excision and skin closure in 17 patients, scrotal flap in one patient, and STSG in three patients. Dermopexy was added in seven patients, and corporopexy was added in four patients. Of the patients, six had buried penis, and one patient had megameatus intact prepuce. Parent/patient satisfaction was excellent to good in 95% of patients. ConclusionPostcircumcision trapped penis should be treated promptly to alleviate complications and anxiety, and improve body image. The treatment is mainly surgical; conservative treatment can be tried in early and mild cases. Circumcision in the buried penis converts a minor procedure to a complicated one. Skin coverage after the release of the trapped penis is a challenge and multiple plans should be available. STSG is a good option for penile coverage. Associated conditions and predisposing factors can be addressed in the same operation. The knowledge and practice of circumcision need to be improved.

  • Early functional outcome of two surgical protocols used in the repair of
           complete unilateral cleft lip palate: a comparative study
    • Authors: Ali Abde Elfatah; Mohammed K.; El-Anwar, Mohammad W.; Quriba, Amal S.
      Abstract: image Background and objectiveThe outcome of different treatment protocols for primary management of patients with complete unilateral cleft lip palate (UCLP) may vary considerably. This study aimed to compare the results of quality of speech and velopharyngeal sphincter mechanism between two surgical protocols used in the repair of complete UCLP. Patients and methodsThis study was conducted in Zagazig University Hospitals from February 2009 to April 2012 on 30 patients. The patients were categorized into two groups: group A, which consisted of 15 patients who underwent cleft lip repair and cleft hard palate repair with a vomer flap in same sitting; and group B, which consisted of 15 patients who underwent only cleft lip repair at first sitting. At the age of 12 months in both groups, repair of the remaining cleft palate was performed. ResultsA significant difference between groups A and B at all postoperative comparisons was found in terms of grade of nasality, grade of closure of the velopharyngeal valve, and nasal emission of air. ConclusionEarly repair of the hard palate with simultaneous cleft lip repair can be considered as a reliable alternative procedure to one-stage palatoplasty and appeared to have better early functional results in the treatment of complete UCLP.

  • Demographic characteristics in patients with short-gap and long-gap
           esophageal atresia: a comparative study
    • Authors: Erikci; Volkan; Hosgör, Münevver; Karaarslan, Utku; Aksoy, Nail
      Abstract: image BackgroundThe knowledge of the size of the gap between esophageal ends in esophageal atresia (EA) before surgery is of clinical importance. The aim of this study was to compare the demographic characteristics between patients with short-gap esophageal atresia (SGEA) and long-gap esophageal atresia (LGEA). Patients and methodsMedical records of all patients managed for EA spectrum in our department between 2003 and 2012 were evaluated, retrospectively. Demographic data included the maternal age, the number of parities and deliveries, the presence of polyhydramnios and the prenatal diagnosis, sex, the gestational age and prematurity, the type of delivery and the birth weight, age at the time of diagnosis and treatment, the presence of associated anomalies including VACTERL-type and non-VACTERL-type anomalies, the type of EA according to Gross classification, and discrepancies between the diameters of atretic esophageal ends. SGEA and LGEA were defined as a gap of less than three vertebral bodies or three or more vertebral bodies in length between the atretic esophageal ends, respectively. ResultsThere were 99 patients treated for the diagnosis of EA spectrum during the study period: 81 in the SGEA group and 18 in the LGEA group. Most of the parameters studied did not differ between the two groups. Type-C EA was more prevalent in patients with SGEA (n=77/81) and type-A was more frequent in children with LGEA (n=8/18) (P
