Seven cases of fibromatoses in infancy and childhood serve as examples to demonstrate this group of rare tumours, taking especially the aggressive forms of juvenile fibromatoses into account. There is a tendency to locally invasive destructive growth without metastasising at any time and a markedly high relapse rate after surgery--a tendency that showed up(More)
Out of a series of 146 patients with oesophageal atresia 9 (6.2%) underwent colon interposition from 1963 to 1971. All eight surviving patients were seen at follow-up after a mean of 22 years. Three patients were free of specific symptoms according to the criteria of DeMeester, two had moderate and three severe distress. The mean time for consuming a(More)
We have retrospectively reviewed our single-center experience of the treatment of early onset nephrotic syndrome (NS). From 1991 to 1998, ten children with NS were treated. Kidney biopsy showed focal sclerosis (n=1), diffuse mesangial sclerosis (n=7), and congenital NS of the Finnish type (n=2). Associated conditions included incomplete Drash syndrome(More)
A method is presented that represents a modification of Rehbein's perlon filament technique for treating extensive oesophageal atresias. This new approach enables, in case of congenital oesophageal defects exceeding three vertebral bodies in length, to eventually perform end-to-end anastomosis of the patient's oesophagus. For this purpose, the distance(More)
The question of separation of the epiphyses in infants and small children of the type Salter-Harris affecting the distal humerus is discussed. The indications for open reduction of the distal humerus epiphyseal separation is rarely indicated and should only be utilised when there is associated injury to the nerves of vessels or a total disruption of the(More)
In the past 25 years, from 1963 to 1988, 90 children from the Department of Pediatric Surgery of the Pediatric Hospital in Cologne, Germany were treated for biliary atresia. Of these, 47 had purely extrahepatic bile duct lesions, 21 had purely intrahepatic bile duct lesions, and 22 had both extrahepatic and intrahepatic bile duct lesions. Forty-five of the(More)
The clinical pattern of signs and symptoms of respiratory complications due to flaccid trachea has been analysed in 83 children treated in our hospital between 1983 and 1988 for tracheo-oesophageal malformations. These signs and symptoms are classified according to endoscopic findings, and are thus arranged according to various degrees of severity. Of the(More)
This article describes the use of amniotic grafts (AG) in the repair of large abdominal wall defects in newborns with gastroschisis. From 1988 to 1995, 22 newborns with gastroschisis underwent surgical repair. In 12 primary closure (PC) was performed; in 10 the abdominal wall defect was covered with an AG. A double layer of AG was used and the graft was(More)
Pre- and retrorenal growing neuroblastomas did not produce any displacement of the kidney or any obstruction in the intravenous pyelogram. The diagnosis was done by ultrasound-scanning as well as biochemically before surgery. The reported cases show that sonography and determination of the catecholamine metabolites are essential in the diagnostic evaluation(More)
