BACKGROUND Management guidelines with regard to congenital pouch colon (CPC) are not clearly defined with regard to the type of pouch present. The aim of this study was to outline the management strategy and surgical approach to CPC using the Saxena-Mathur classification based on anatomical morphology of the pouch. METHODS During a 12-year period(More)
A one-day-old boy weighing 2.4 kg was admitted with imperforate anus. On physical examination there was marked abdominal distension and palpable bladder. External genitalia were normal. A per urethral 6F feeding tube could be passed easily into the bladder. Invertogram suggested the presence of congenital pouch colon malformation. Exploration revealed type(More)
Congenital pouch colon, an unusual high anorectal malformation, is rarely associated with exstrophy variants. We describe a case of congenital pouch colon associated with duplicate bladder exstrophy, never reported before in literature. The relevant literature is reviewed, and the possible embryogenesis of this complex anomaly is suggested.
Congenital pouch colon (CPC) is a rare form of high ano-rectal malformation (ARM) in which part of or the entire colon is replaced by a pouch with a fistula to the genito-urinary tract. According to the Saxena-Mathur classification CPC is divided into five types. Although plain abdominal radiographs are taken in infants with suspicion of CPC to detect large(More)
