UNLABELLED Capabilities of color and power Doppler sonography (DS) were prospectively evaluated for diagnosis of acute pyelonephritis and for prediction of scarring by comparison with 99mTc-dimercaptosuccinic acid scintigraphy (DMSA). METHODS Fifty-seven children (mean age, 5 +/- 3 y) with acute pyelonephritis were investigated by biologic testing, DS (DS(More)
PURPOSE We review our initial cases of continent cystostomy to assess long-term functional results and complications after a minimum of 15 years of followup. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between 1976 and 1984, 23 continent cystostomies were performed on 15 boys and 8 girls with neuropathic bladders. Mean patient age at surgery was 8 years and 4 months (range 3(More)
MR urography (MRU) has been widely accepted as a substitute to intravenous urography for investigating children with a dilated urinary tract after preliminary assessment by US and voiding cystourethrography. Hydronephrosis is by far the main indication for MRU because upper tract dilatation is a frequent condition in infants and children. Recent advances in(More)
The authors report four cases of arterial priapism in the child, a rare condition since only 13 cases are described in the literature. High-flow priapism follows perineal or penile injury with damage to a cavernosal artery and formation of an arteriosinusoidal fistula. The onset may be immediate but more often occurs after a few days. Arterial priapism is(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the efficacy of the different treatments of vesicoureteric reflux (VUR) associated with reflex bladder sphincter dyssynergia (RBSD). PATIENTS AND METHODS The medical records of 33 children (28 girls) aged 4 to 12 years presenting reflex bladder sphincter dyssynergia and vesicoureteric reflux have been reviewed. The most common clinical(More)
UNLABELLED This study was performed to evaluate a quantitative method based on (99m)Tc-DMSA renal planar scintigraphy performed during acute pyelonephritis (APN) to detect kidneys at risk of scarring. METHODS A total of 43 children (5.8 +/- 3.6 y old [mean +/- SD]) were examined by (99m)Tc-DMSA scintigraphy during (DMSA 1) and 8 +/- 2 mo after (DMSA 2)(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether contralateral meatal advancement based on the technique described by Gil Vernet decreases the risk of postoperative contralateral reflux, which may occur after a unilateral reimplantation. PATIENTS AND METHODS From January 1986 to 1997, 321 reimplantations were performed for unilateral vesico-ureteric reflux (VUR) using the(More)
We report a case of Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome diagnosed in the neonatal period. US revealed the classic association of a uterus didelphys with blind hemivagina and no ipsilateral kidney. The diagnosis was established by postnatal US and confirmed by MRI. Differential diagnoses are discussed. A trans-hymeneal resection of the vaginal septum was(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the characteristics of prenatally and postnatally diagnosed ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) in children. PATIENTS AND METHODS We reviewed the records of 74 children who underwent pyeloplasty or nephrectomy for UPJO between 1995 and 2000. The patients were divided into 2 groups: prenatally and postnatally diagnosed UPJO. In(More)
