OBJECTIVE To study the clinical profile of the cases of esophageal atresia (EA) and/or tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) and various factors affecting the surgical and early postoperative management and their outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS A prospective analysis of 127 cases of EA from February 2004 to May 2006 was performed. Waterston prognostic criteria(More)
The purpose of the study is to present the authors’ clinical and surgical experience with congenital bladder diverticula in nine pediatric patients at a developing world tertiary care center. Records of nine patients diagnosed and treated as congenital bladder diverticula from 2000 to 2007 were retrospectively reviewed for age, sex, chief complaints,(More)
Urethrocutaneous fistula is a common complication after hypospadias repair. If congenital, it is usually associated with other genitourinary and gastrointestinal anomalies. Isolated congenital urethral fistula is a very rare anomaly. We present a 4-year old circumcised boy with this unusual anomaly. Etiology, embryology, and management are discussed. We(More)
OBJECTIVES Umbilical preservation or reconstruction of a neoumbilicus has now become a part of exstrophy repair. We describe an easy method of umbilicoplasty concurrent with the initial bladder closure or at subsequent stages and present our experience with this technique in 36 patients during the past 5 years. METHODS Umbilical reconstruction using this(More)
The diagnosis and management of neonatal pneumoperitoneum revolves around necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) in most of the published literature. Although NEC remains the major cause of pneumoperitoneum in a neonate, there are several other causes leading to free air in the peritoneal cavity. A number of case reports have appeared describing pneumoperitoneum(More)
Diaphragmatic injuries have been reported to be a predictor of serious associated injuries in trauma and a marker of severity. Because of its rarity in children, the diagnosis is often delayed for months and years, due to overshadowing injuries. Perhaps due to the elasticity of their tissues, traumatic diaphragmatic rupture is uncommon in children. The(More)
This report is to present and discuss an extremely rare association of situs inversus with duodenal atresia in an 11-day-old male neonate born full term and weighing 1.9 kg. The baby presented with recurrent bilious vomiting. Babygram revealed situs inversus and duodenal obstruction. Echocardiography showed dextrocardia with a small ASD. Exploration(More)
OBJECTIVE We intended to prospectively study the technical feasibility and advantages of esophageal anastomosis medial to the preserved azygos vein in neonates diagnosed with esophageal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula (EA/TEF). The results were compared to the cases where azygos vein was either not preserved, or the anastomosis was done lateral to(More)
Congenital paraesophageal hiatus hernia in children is a very rare condition, which may or may not be symptomatic [1–4]. The symptomatology of these patients is usually non-specific, in the form of repeated attacks of chest infection and/or recurrent vomiting, but can be associated with serious complications such as intra-thoracic gastric volvulus with(More)
Primary hydatid cyst of the pancreas represents a rare clinical entity. The clinical presentation depends on the location of a hydatid cyst in the pancreas. A hydatid cyst located in the head of the pancreas usually manifests as obstructive jaundice due to the extrinsic compression of the common bile duct. A case of a hydatid cyst of the head of the(More)
