Risk factors for end stage renal disease in children with posterior urethral valves.
Patients with posterior urethral valves and severe bladder dysfunction in whom nadir creatinine remains increased are at risk for upper urinary tract deterioration, requiring renal replacement therapy. Expand
Safety of gentamicin bladder irrigations in complex urological cases.
Gentamicin bladder irrigations are a helpful adjunct in the management of complex pediatric urological cases involving recurrent symptomatic bacteriuria and no longer require intensive laboratory monitoring of low risk patients at this institution. Expand
Ureteroscopy is safe and effective in prepubertal children.
Rigid and flexible ureteroscopy can be performed safely and effectively in prepubertal children and Ureteroscopic treatment can be effective in selected children with intraluminal obstruction. Expand
Bladder calculi after augmentation cystoplasty: risk factors and prevention strategies.
Augmentation cystoplasty carries an overall low risk of bladder calculi and Gastrocy stoplasty had a significantly lower rate of stone formation than augmentation with ileum and colon. Expand
Pediatric standard and robot-assisted laparoscopic pyeloplasty: a comparative single institution study.
Robot-assisted laparoscopic pyeloplasty had a shorter operative time, and its success and complication rates are comparable to standard laparosc pyelplasty, with similar outcomes. Expand
The infected urachal cyst: primary excision versus a staged approach.
In the absence of infection, urachal cyst excision affords the most benign postoperative course, however, when infection is present, perioperative drainage with subsequent total excision may offer the most effective surgical option. Expand

It appears that the first-line of therapy in the child with distal and mid-ureteral stones should be ureteroscopic lithotripsy, and an increasing body of evidence shows that endoscopic or ESWL are equally safe and efficacious in those clinical scenarios. Expand
Magnetic resonance imaging of the dysplastic renal moiety and ectopic ureter.
MRI may facilitate diagnosis, guide cystoscopy and aid in preoperative planning in children with poorly functioning renal moieties and ectopic ureteral insertion sites that were not evident in 3 of the 5 patients who underwent cystoscope. Expand
Lower urinary tract reconstruction is safe and effective in children with end stage renal disease.
Long-term data confirm that severe bladder dysfunction can be managed safely and effectively with continent urinary reconstruction in children with ESRD. Expand
Infant robotic pyeloplasty: comparison with an open cohort.
Infant RALP was observed to be feasible and efficacious with shorter operative time, hospital stay, and narcotic utilization than OP. Expand
