Congenital rectourethral or anourethral fistulae without imperforate anus in males are rare, representing less than 1% of anorectal malformations. We report our experience with two males with "N type" urethral fistulae. One, a 5-year-old boy, presented with recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) and passage of urine per anus. Investigations included a(More)
An animal model was developed to simulate the effect of implantation of artificial sphincter cuff on the urethra in children. The study was conducted on 28 pigs, 15 castrated males, four uncastrated males and nine females, divided into four groups: control unoperated, and three operated groups. Group I contained young piglets (castrated males, uncastrated(More)
We report a case of priapism in an 11-year-old boy known to have Fabry's disease. High flow was confirmed by color flow Doppler ultrasound and intracorporal blood gas measurements. Successful treatment was achieved by unilateral percutaneous Gelfoam embolization of the left internal pudendal artery. Previously reported cases of priapism associated with(More)
Metastatic renal adenocarcinoma has been highly resistant to most therapeutic approaches. However, hormonal treatment has been reported to induce significant subjective or objective improvement. Two groups of patients receiving either androgens or progestogens were evaluated. The number of responses was disappointing. Furthermore, neither of the 2 regimens(More)
An animal model of the Long-Evans species of rats was developed to study the short-term and long-term effects of enterocystoplasty. Various enterocystoplasties were performed in 39 rats, including ileal in 29, colonic in 5 and gastric in 5. The followup period was 3 months. Frequency and pattern of voiding, 24-hour urinary collection for mucus production,(More)
The use of laparoscopy through a small infraumbilical incision permits noninvasive exploration of the pelvic fossae. The vas deferens as well as the spermatic vessels can be identified either with the testicle or as a blind ending. Twenty-six laparoscopies were performed on 19 patients with unilateral impalpable testis and 7 with bilateral impalpable(More)
Over a 9-month period, 28 patients with distal penile or more proximal hypospadias underwent one-stage surgical repair. Bladder drainage was achieved in the traditional fashion with either an indwelling Foley catheter or suprapubic catheter or by using a modified urethral silicone stent ("splent"). Twenty-two patients had repair with a perimeatal skin flap,(More)
