OBJECTIVE Penile hair tourniquet syndrome is an uncommon syndrome characterized by progressive penile strangulation by a hair tie. Complications reported include urethrocutaneous fistula, complete urethral transection, penile gangrene, and penile amputation. Prevention of such major complications depends on awareness of the etiology and presence of a high(More)
OBJECTIVE Children with valve bladder syndrome represent the worst end of the posterior urethral valve spectrum. When conservative measures fail to control recurrent infections, prevent deterioration of the upper tract (in the form of increasing hydronephrosis and or worsening of kidney function) and improve incontinence, augmentation cystoplasty is(More)
OBJECTIVE Complex post-traumatic posterior urethral strictures in children constitute a major challenge to the pediatric urologist. Surgical repair depends primarily on the length of the urethral obliteration. Resection with end-to-end anastomosis is the usual procedure in the face of a short segment stricture. Transpubic urethroplasty and substitution(More)
AIM Evaluation of cosmetic and functional outcome of single-stage exstrophy-epispadias complex repair in older children and those with previously failed repair. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study comprised 15 children (12 boys and 3 girls) with classic bladder exstrophy and a mean age at repair of 8.6 months (range 2-24 months). Eight children had a(More)
OBJECTIVES Surgical treatment of a congenital bladder diverticulum is indicated in symptomatic children. Diverticulectomy can be performed by an open or a laparoscopic approach. We report our recent experience in using the pneumovesicoscopic approach for accomplishing vesical diverticulectomy. METHODS We operated on three boys with a mean age of 11.6(More)
INTRODUCTION The surgical reconstruction of distal penile hypospadias in a single stage is the standard practice for managing anterior hypospadias. Unfortunately, it is not simple to extrapolate the same principle to proximal hypospadias. There is no consensus among hypospadiologists about whether a single- or multi-stage operation is the optimal treatment(More)
OBJECTIVE To present our new approach using a minimally invasive technique for the management of pelviureteral junction (PUJ) obstruction with a crossing vessel. MATERIALS AND METHODS In December 2009 to December 2011, out of 23 cases of retroperitoneoscopic laparoscopic pyeloplasty, four adolescents presenting with PUJ obstruction due to an aberrant(More)
INTRODUCTION Laparoscopic pyeloplasty achieves good cosmetic and functional outcomes. Both transperitoneal and retroperitoneal approaches are used. No single study to date has compared the two approaches in a prospective randomized design. OBJECTIVE We present a prospective randomized comparison between both approaches in children in a trial to define(More)
OBJECTIVE To report our initial experience in the application of laparoscopy in the management of children with unilateral vesico-ureteric reflux (VUR) using the laparoscopic extravesical transperitoneal approach following the Lich-Gregoir technique, and to evaluate the results and benefits of this technique for such patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between(More)
OBJECTIVE To report our multicentre experience and outcomes with laparoscopic transperitoneal and retroperitoneal upper pole heminephroureterectomy (HNU) in children with renal duplex systems and impaired upper pole. PATIENTS AND METHODS Laparoscopic HNU was performed in 22 children (15 girls, seven boys) with a mean age of 5.9 years. A retroperitoneal(More)
