AIM To compare tunica vaginalis with dartos flap as soft tissue cover in primary hypospadias repair. MATERIALS AND METHODS 25 cases (age range: 12-132 months; all fresh cases) of primary hypospadias were prospectively repaired by tubularized incised plate (TIP)/TIP + graft urethroplasty using tunica vaginalis flap (TVF) as soft tissue cover to… (More)
Transverse testicular ectopia (TTE) is an uncommon anomaly of testicular descent. Herein, we describe a case of TTE with blindly ending vas and persistent Mόllerian duct syndrome in a 2-year-old child. Orchidopexy could be done through the normal orthotopic route after separating it from the Mόllerian structure and dividing the peritoneal fold just distal… (More)
A neonate, who had undergone primary repair of esophageal atresia with tracheo-esophageal fistula, developed right pleural effusion in the postoperative period. It was initially misdiagnosed as an anastomotic leak, but later confirmed to be chylothorax. Conservative treatment failed. Application of biological fibrin glue (sealant) on the mediastinum through… (More)
Amebic liver abscess (ALA) in pediatric age group is rare. We describe a successful thrombectomy and open drainage of a large left lobe ALA associated with thrombus in the hepatic veins and inferior vena cava extending into the right atrium in a 6-year-old boy.
Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a known cause of secondary gastric volvulus. It is also known that bronchopulmonary sequestration (BPS) may be associated with CDH. An extremely rare case of BPS associated with gastric volvulus in a girl with left sided CDH is being reported.
Extra-osseous Ewing's Sarcoma (EES) arising from the peripheral nerve is rarely reported in children. Here, we report an instance of EES arising from the left sciatic nerve mimicking an infected hemangioma. This case highlights the need for a high index of suspicion and early histological diagnosis to avoid diagnostic delay.
Peritonitis due to rupture of liver hydatid cyst secondary to blunt abdominal trauma can present with fatal consequences. Timely diagnosis and appropriate surgical management can be life saving. We report a case of ruptured liver hydatid cyst in the peritoneal cavity following trauma and its successful operative management in a preadolescent previously… (More)
PURPOSE We report 18 years' experience of traumatic urethral strictures in boys with emphasis on recurrent strictures. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-four boys with pelvic fracture urethral strictures underwent 35 repairs: 23 in the primary group (initial suprapubic cystostomy, but no urethral repair) and 12 in the re-do group (previously failed attempt(s)… (More)
