One of the major challenges to linguistic theory is the solution of what has been termed the "projection problem". Simply put, linguistics must account for the fact that starting from a data base that is both unsystematic and relatively small, a human child is capable of constructing a grammar that mirrors, for all intents and purposes, the adult system. In(More)
PURPOSE Management of neonatal torsion is controversial, since the likelihood of testicular salvage and metachronous contralateral torsion must be weighed against the risk of neonatal anesthesia. We reviewed a large series of such cases and stratified neonatal torsion based on time of presentation to determine the potential for testicular salvage. To our(More)
PURPOSE Biofeedback is known to effect symptomatic and objective cure in children with dysfunctional voiding. While some authors advocate animation assisted biofeedback to achieve success, we previously demonstrated similar success without animation. We recently used animated biofeedback aimed at simplifying muscle isolation and encouraging patient(More)
PURPOSE Follow-up of patients undergoing dextranomer/hyaluronic acid injection for vesico-ureteral reflux (VUR) is controversial. The purpose of our study was to test the hypothesis that patients undergoing the double hydrodistention-implantation technique (Double HIT) have a higher clinical and radiographic success rate. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients(More)
PURPOSE In the setting of signs and symptoms of testicular torsion the absence of diastolic flow and/or color flow on Doppler ultrasound has traditionally prompted emergent scrotal exploration. This practice emanates largely from the difficulty on ultrasound of distinguishing salvageable torsed testes from those that are not salvageable. We identified(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the usefulness and interobserver concordance of a novel grading system for dynamic ureteral hydrodistention. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between May 1, 2002 and July 1, 2008 the hydrodistention grade in 697 ureters was prospectively assigned and recorded, including H0-no hydrodistention, H1-ureteral orifice open but tunnel not evident,(More)
PURPOSE Interstitial cystitis can be classified into Hunner's ulcer and nonulcer disease, which are easily distinguished by cystoscopic examination. Although therapeutic options may differ between these 2 groups, the diagnosis of interstitial cystitis is currently established by many clinicians in the absence of cystoscopy. We determined whether clinical(More)
OBJECTIVE Urethral-enteric fistulae with hypoplastic/atretic distal urethra in boys with anorectal malformations are amenable to management via sequential dilation of the distal urethra (P.A.D.U.A.) and subsequent repair of the fistula, but failure of this technique occasionally requires complex reconstruction. We present a novel surgical approach, along(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate whether voiding dysfunction (VD) in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) could be treated successfully using individualized therapy. We also sought to describe the spectrum of voiding symptoms experienced by children with ADHD. ADHD is diagnosed in 3-5% of children. These children have a greater incidence(More)
The aim of this article is to assess the treatment efficacy of percutaneous endopyelotomy and laparoscopic pyeloplasty to establish a new algorithm in the minimally invasive treatment of ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO). Hospital records, office charts, and radiographic studies of patients with UPJO treated either endoscopically (n = 50),(More)
