  • Single-port laparoscopic-assisted pyloromyotomy: a 6-year experience
    • Abstract: image Objective: The aim of this paper is to present the results of a 6-year experience with a laparoscopic-assisted approach to infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (IHPS): the single-port, laparoscopic-assisted pyloromyotomy (SPLAP). Summary background data: Ramstedt pyloromyotomy is the procedure of choice for IHPS; however, the best way to approach the pylorus is still debated. The recent literature reports many comparisons between various open and laparoscopic approaches. Here, we report our long-term result with a laparoscopic-assisted technique for IHPS. Materials and methods: Thirty-eight infants underwent SPLAP. The approach to the abdominal cavity is performed through a right circumbilical incision and then a 10 mm trocar is inserted. After the pneumoperitoneum is established, an operative telescope is introduced. Once the telescope is inserted, the pylorus is easily located and then grasped and exteriorized by the umbilical incision. At this point, conventional Ramstedt pyloromyotomy is performed. Once the pylorus is reintroduced into the abdomen, a new pneumoperitoneum is created to control mucosal integrity and hemostasis. Results: In all 38 cases, adequate pyloromyotomy was performed in a good operative time, without any major intraoperative or postoperative complications, achieving excellent cosmetic results. Conclusion: The feasibility of SPLAP found over these 6 years suggests that this procedure is an excellent alternative to open or laparoscopic pyloromyotomy.

  • Omental infarction in children misdiagnosed as acute appendicitis
    • Authors: Catania; Vincenzo D.; di Giacomo, Vincenza; Bonomo, Roberta; Guarino, Nino
      Abstract: image Omental infarction (OI) is a rare cause of acute abdomen in children. It is found in 0.1–0.5% of pediatric patients undergoing abdominal exploration for the suspect of acute appendicitis. OI is considered a self-limited entity, and conservative management should be considered. This approach implicates computer tomography scan radiation exposure, prolonged hospitalization, and prolonged analgesic and anti-inflammatory therapy. In contrast, surgery allows immediate pain resolution with low complication rate. We present our experience with two cases of pediatric acute abdomen due to OI, misdiagnosed as acute appendicitis, which were successfully treated surgically.

  • New technique for herniotomy in children: a clinical trial
    • Authors: Amanollahi; Omid; Diaz, Diana Noemi; Moetamedi, Vahid
      Abstract: image Objective: This study aimed to assess the necessity of hernial sac ligation after its transection in herniotomy in children and to compare the recurrence and complication rates between two methods of hernial repair in children (the classic method with ligation of the hernial sac and a new method without sac ligation). Study design: This was a randomized-controlled trial (or a randomized comparative trial). Materials and methods: A total of 200 children, newborns to children 12 years of age, with inguinal hernia were admitted to Emam-Reza Hospital, Kermanshah, Iran, between March 2011 and 2012 for elective hernial surgery. Patients who were more susceptible to recurrence such as patients with incarcerated hernia and increased intra-abdominal pressure were excluded from the study. After exclusion of a few patients, 182 children were included in the study. They were allocated randomly to two groups: a study group (herniotomy without sac ligation) and a control group (herniotomy with sac ligation). Both groups were followed up for a period of 1–1.5 years postoperatively for recurrence or other complications. Results: There was only one case of recurrent hernia in the control group and none in the study group. There was no statistically significant difference in the rate of recurrence or other complications between the two groups. Conclusion: This study showed that hernial sac ligation after its transection is not necessary in pediatric herniotomy. Omission of ligation did not result in any significant effect on early and late complications.

  • Aneurysms in pediatric age: a challenging and rare disease entity
    • Authors: Sayed; Ahmed; Elsadat, Ahmed; Mashaal, Marwa
      Abstract: image Introduction: Pediatric arterial aneurysms are extremely rare. Their etiology can be congenital, mycotic, following infective endocarditis, post-traumatic pseudoaneurysms, or vasculitis. The treatment strategy in children is not very clear because of the small number of cases. Methods: This study included eight children with arterial aneurysms, which included one thoracic, two abdominal aortic, one iliac, three upper-extremity, and two carotid aneurysms. Revascularization was performed using an autogenous vein whenever feasible. Anastomoses were performed with interrupted sutures with nonabsorbable material to allow for future growth of the vessels. Ligation was allowed only after ensuring that the distal collateral circulation was adequate. Results: Eight aneurysms were reconstructed and one carotid aneurysm was ligated. No neurologic events occurred after the carotid ligation. Follow-up ranged between 4 months and 4 years and showed no recurrences or occlusion of reconstructed aneurysms, as detected clinically and radiologically. The grafts used for reconstruction – including the synthetic ones – were found to be growing with the age of the children. In one aortic case, there was mild stenosis in one of the iliac limbs, but that was asymptomatic. The extremity aneurysms repair were uneventful, with good flow in the affected extremity. Conclusion: Repair of aneurysms in children is feasible and yields good midterm results. Management is usually individual and tailored to each case. Finding the suitable conduit is a challenge, and autogenous veins are preferred whenever available.

  • Securing the mucocutaneous anastomosis in the repair of low-anorectal
    • Authors: AbouZeid; Amr A.
      Abstract: image Purpose: The aim of this study was to identify the incidence of wound complications after a limited sagittal anorectoplasty for the repair of rectoperineal fistula. Patients and methods: Between January 2011 and December 2014, patients with rectoperineal fistula treated primarily by a limited sagittal anorectoplasty were included. The patients in the study were divided into two groups according to the extent of rectal dissection and mobilization during the operation. Results: Thirty-six consecutive patients with rectoperineal fistula were included (28 girls and eight boys). Their mean age was 10 months (range 3–42 months). The overall incidence of postoperative wound dehiscence was 22.2% (eight patients). In the first group (limited rectal mobilization), there was a high incidence of wound complications (6/15 patients). Five patients were considered to have a major dehiscence and four required a rescue colostomy. In the second group (extended rectal mobilization, 21 patients), two had minor dehiscence that were managed conservatively. The overall incidence of wound complications was significantly lower in the second group (Mann–Whitney test, P=0.04). Conclusion: Among the patients with rectoperineal fistula, extension of the dissection and mobilization of the rectum from the anterior structures (vagina in girls, and bulpospongiosum in boys) decreases wound dehiscence following a limited sagittal anorectoplasty procedure.

  • Laparoscopic diagnostic findings in atypical intestinal malrotation in
           children with equivocal imaging studies
    • Authors: Ismail; Maged; Shalaby, Rafik; Elgffar Helal, Ahmed Abdelgaffar; Goda, Samir; Badway, Refat; Yehya, Abdelaziz; Gamaan, Ibrahim; Elrazik, Mohammed Abd; Akl, Mabrouk; Alsamahy, Omar
      Abstract: image Background: Atypical presentations of intestinal malrotation are more common in older children with a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. Upper gastrointestinal (UGI) contrast study is essential for the diagnosis of the majority of cases. Recently, laparoscopy has been used in the management of malrotation. We present our experience with laparoscopic management of atypical presentations of intestinal malrotation in children, describing laparoscopic findings in these cases. Patients and methods: A total of 40 patients with atypical presentations of malrotation were included in this study. The main presentations were recurrent abdominal pain, intermittent intestinal obstruction, recurrent bilious vomiting, and failure to thrive. They all were subjected to thorough history taking, clinical examination, routine laboratory investigations, and UGI contrast study. No preoperative definitive diagnosis of malrotation was performed and all patients underwent laparoscopic evaluation. Results: Forty patients (25 males and 15 females) with a mean age of 7±2.8 years were subjected to laparoscopy. Thirty-six patients (90%) were found to have definite laparoscopic findings in the form of markedly dilated stomach and first part of duodenum, ectopic site of cecum, medial and low position of duodenojejunal junction, congested mesenteric veins with lymphatic ectasia, generalized mesenteric lymphadenopathy, reversed relation of superior mesenteric artery and vein, and right-sided small bowel and narrow mesenteric base. Four patients had differed laparoscopic diagnosis. All the procedures were completed laparoscopically. All the patients achieved full recovery without intraoperative or postoperative complications. Conclusion: Laparoscopy permits direct evaluation and treatment of undocumented malrotation in children, with equivocal UGI contrast study. These newly described laparoscopic findings are the key for the diagnosis of malrotation with atypical presentation.

  • Hyperhidrosis in children and review of its current evidence-based
    • Authors: Shalaby; Mohamed Sameh; El Hay, Sameh Abd
      Abstract: image Hyperhidrosis (HH) is excessive sweating that usually interferes with the patient’s social life. In more than 80% of the cases, the symptoms start in childhood. Early detection and management can significantly improve the patient’s quality of life; however, HH remains widely underdiagnosed and undertreated, particularly among children. Many patients do not realize that they have a treatable condition and reports have shown that only 38% of the patients had discussed their condition with a healthcare professional. The aim of this article was to improve awareness on the significant sequel of HH in children and highlight its effects on their quality of life and various available treatment options.

  • Effectiveness of Wharton’s jelly stem cells in gastroschisis repair
           using the inner surface of the umbilical cord as a patch: long-term
    • Authors: Zivkovic; Stojan M.; Djordjevic, Miroslav; Milic, Natasa; Smoljanic, Zeljko; Djuricic, Goran; Pavicevic, Polina; Keserovic, Branislava; Stojanovic, Borko
      Abstract: image Objective: This retrospective study was designed to assess and compare the anatomical, functional, and esthetic appearance of the umbilical area in patients after repair of gastroschisis using the inner surface of the umbilical cord (UC) and in patients with omphalocele conservatively treated. Background: Our procedure transformed gastroschisis into an ‘artificial–surgical omphalocele’ in which the prolapsed intestine was covered with an umbilical patch, the inner surface of which contained Wharton’s jelly (WJ). Methods: We have summarized an experience of 17 years in repairing gastroschisis using the inner surface of the UC. From 1986 to 2003, 21 infants with gastroschisis and one with a ruptured omphalocele were treated with this technique. We used Eagle’s medium to prove the validity of the umbilical stump and the duration of its viability. The inner surface of the umbilical patch is a ‘live’ structure with WJ, which contains mucoid connective tissue and fibroblast-like cells – that is, stem cells producing cutis, adipose, and connective tissue. Results: Using our method, early control assessment of 18 of 21 patients with gastroschisis, at intervals of 1–3 months, showed good functional and esthetic results. Clinical long-term results in terms of anatomical, clinical, and functional findings were excellent. Besides clinical testimony, we used high-frequency ultrasonography to make an appraisal of the effectiveness of WJ stem cells in the repair of gastroschisis, and compared our results with healthy volunteers and patients with omphalocele conservatively treated. Conclusion: This paper describes the effect of the local application of WJ – that is, mesenchymal stromal cells derived from the inner surface of the umbilical stump – and its influence on the healing process of the birth defect and wound.
