BACKGROUND/PURPOSE The authors' recent experience with the study of the presentation, the pathological anatomy, and results of management of congenital pouch colon (CPC) malformations is presented. The possible embryogenesis of this condition is discussed. METHODS Between January 1991 and June 1997, CPC with anorectal agenesis was diagnosed in 39(More)
From January 1995 to March 1998, congenital pouch colon (CPC) with anorectal agenesis was diagnosed in ten girls who were classified into four groups based on the length of normal colon proximal to the colonic pouch. Of six girls with little or no normal colon, one had a cloacal anomaly while five had a colovesical or colovestibular fistula along with a(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Local or systemic application of testosterone is reported to stimulate penile growth. Intramuscular testosterone has been found to be effective in 50% of patients; however, variable results have been reported with topical testosterone. The current study is an attempt to compare the efficacy of intramuscular versus topical testosterone(More)
Despite advances in the management of exstrophy epispadias complex (EEC), the quality of life of these patients is far from good. The post-operative period is complicated by numerous and variable events - infection, dehiscence, upper tract dilatation with deterioration, fistulas, stone formation and incontinence to name a few of the major complications.(More)
A 1-day-old boy who presented with an anorectal malformation (ARM) was found to have a segmental dilatation of the colon (SDC) associated with a typical congenital pouch colon (CPC) malformation. The distal colonic pouch terminated in a high colovesical fistula. The posterior portion of the perineal raphé was duplicated and ended in 2 anal dimples. Both(More)
A high divided sigmoid colostomy has been recommended for staged management of high anorectal malformation. We audited our cases of neonatal colostomy for high anorectal malformation to assess its effectiveness. A retrospective study was carried out of all surgical newborns admitted with high imperforate anus as the single diagnosis at our centre between(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE It is well realized that Anderson-Hyne's pyeloplasty fails to improve the drainage pattern and renal functional parameters in a few cases of hydronephrosis because of pelviureteric junction (PUJ) obstruction. The purpose of this study is to delineate the lower extent of the abnormally innervated pelviureteric junction by S-100(More)
AIM This study was carried out in order to determine whether children with extrahepatic portal hypertension show any improvement in growth parameters and quality of life after elective surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS All patients with extrahepatic portal hypertension who underwent surgery between April 1999 and March 2002 were studied prospectively. Height(More)
This paper presents a comparative prospective study of three modalities of surgical treatment for extrahepatic portal hypertension in children: central splenorenal shunt after splenectomy (CSS), side-to-side lienorenal shunt (SSLR) without splenectomy, and splenectomy and gastroesophageal devascularization (SGD). In an 18-month period, 27 procedures were(More)
