We report the(More)
Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and isolated intestinal perforation (IP) are common diseases in very low birth weight infants (VLBW) and require surgery in 20-40% of cases. We have performed a retrospective review of VLBW infants with NEC or IP who underwent a surgical procedure between 2000 and 2010, either initial laparotomy (group 1), peritoneal drain(More)
The authors present a 5-year-old girl with a congenital choledochal cyst and repeated cholangitis. On laparoscopy, a type I choledochal cyst of Todani classification was confirmed.

The retroperitoneal laparoscopic approach is displacing open surgery and transperitoneal approach for several benign renal conditions. In the past 6 years we have performed 20 procedures, 10 with lateral position and 10 with posterior prone one: 13 total nephrectomies and 7 heminephrectomies in children aged 4,1 years on average. Mean operative time was 200(More)
UNLABELLED Invasive imaging methods that require catheterization are used for the diagnosis of vesicoureteral reflux. Our aim is to assess the usefulness of interleukin urinary levels for the diagnosis of reflux in children without urinary tract infection. METHODS Case-control study in children who underwent a voiding cystourethrogram: forty cases(More)
