OBJECTIVE We present our alternative hydronephrosis grading system (AGS) in an attempt to establish optimal treatment guidelines, and clarify and refine the criteria for severity of hydronephrosis in neonates. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 162 newborns (228 affected kidneys) with antenatally diagnosed primary ureteropelvic junction-type hydronephrosis(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the morbidity, mortality and possible risk factors in children who underwent colostomy. A total of 473 children who underwent colostomy in our clinic between 1983 and 2005 were retrospectively reviewed. Of these patients, 278 were boys and 195 were girls. The major indications for colostomy were anorectal(More)
The purpose of this article is to report on our 23-year experience of treating children with late-presenting congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), focusing on diagnostic difficulties, associated anomalies, and morbidity. We reviewed 19 children in whom Bochdalek-type CDH was diagnosed after the neonatal period, between 1983 and 2005. There were 14 boys and(More)
OBJECTIVES To record pre-existing renal lesions (PERL) found incidentally during evaluation for blunt renal trauma in children, determine their importance, suggest guidelines for the effective initial management of children with significant renal trauma and to evaluate the role of temporary percutaneous nephrostomy tube drainage (TPND) in these patients.

Morgagni hernia (MH) is a congenital herniation of the abdominal organs through the subcostosternal portion of the diaphragm. It is a rare type of diaphragmatic hernia that has been associated with other congenital anomalies. The purpose of this clinical review was to determine the incidence of associated anomalies in patients with MH at a major pediatric(More)
Postoperative abdominal evisceration may lead to high morbidity and mortality. The purpose of the present study was to determine possible risk factors, morbidity and mortality associated with abdominal evisceration in children. A total of 3,591 children underwent abdominal exploration in our clinic between 1983 and 2005. In this study, we retrospectively(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY Hydatid disease is a parasitic infestation which is endemic in many sheep and cattle raising areas and is still an important health problem in the world.

Nonoperative management of minor pancreatic injury is the generally accepted approach. However, the management of major pancreatic injury remains controversial in pediatric patients. The aim of the present study was to determine the safety and efficacy of nonoperative management of pancreatic injury in pediatric patients. Between 2003 and 2009, 31 patients,(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Risk factors that may independently predict morbidity in children with penetrating abdominal wounds (PAW) have not been elucidated fully. The aim of this study was to identify not only correlated risk factors for morbidity in children with PAW, but also to evaluate the independent predictive value of 3 different trauma scoring systems:(More)
Anorectal injuries (ARI) are rare in childhood and yet occur due to sexual abuse and firearm injuries in developed countries. The labeling of ARI remains controversial in spite of a number of divergent reports over the past decade. We evaluated the surgical indications for primary repair of ARI without stoma, and also the potential risk factors affecting(More)
