Müllerian duct anomalies include a wide spectrum of genital tract defects resulting from a development alteration of the genital tract. An 11-year-old girl with a hybrid septate variety uterus with left hemi-obstruction was identified. Beside preoperative imaging evaluation done with ultrasound, magnetic resonance, and hysterosalpingography, a combined(More)
In rat experimental varicocele, polydeoxyribonucleotide (PDRN) induces vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) production, thereby enhancing testicular function. This may point to a new therapeutic approach in human varicocele.
Omental torsion is an underdiagnosed cause of acute abdomen in children. Most cases occur in adults, with only 15% presenting in children. It is estimated that omental infarct is found in approximately 0.1 to 0.5% of children undergoing operations for appendicitis. It may present with various signs and symptoms, although the clinical presentation usually(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the results of esophagocoloplasty (ECP) in children by performing a 45-year retrospective cohort study in a single center. MATERIALS AND METHODS We collected all of the medical charts of patients who underwent ECP at our hospital from January 1969 to January 2014. We reviewed the medical history for each patient and then contacted the(More)
Persistent urogenital sinus (UGS) is a developmental anomaly. It represents one of the most complex problems that a pediatric surgeon may deal with. We report the case of a patient with UGS treated at 3 years of age by anterior sagittal transrectal approach and en bloc sinus mobilization. The procedure was performed with the patient prone with the initial(More)
Introduction Jejuno-ileal atresia is the most common cause of congenital intestinal occlusion in newborns and the duodenal atresia is the most common cause of high bowel obstruction in the neonatal period. Nowadays the minimally invasive approach has been widely diffused and these surgical options are possible: circumbilical incision, the video-assisted and(More)
INTRODUCTION Partial splenectomy in children is a good surgical option for hematological diseases and focal splenic tumors because it allows the preservation of the spleen's immunological function. Furthermore, it can be performed by laparoscopy in children as it is a safe procedure, offering the benefits of a minimally invasive approach. MATERIALS AND(More)
Wandering spleen and gastric volvulus are two rare entities that have been described in association with congenital diaphragmatic hernia. The diagnosis is difficult and any delay can result in ischemia and necrosis of both organs. We present a case of a 13-year-old girl, previously operated on for anterior diaphragmatic hernia and intrathoracic gastric(More)
Intussusception is a very common surgical finding in children. Idiopathic intussusception is relatively frequent in children within the first year and it usually causes an acute abdomen. Instead, complex intussusception involving multiple or remote intestinal segments is a very rare entity and it is frequently diagnosed intraoperatively. It is often because(More)
An anterior congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a diaphragmatic defect that allows the passage of abdominal organs into the thorax. It is typically asymptomatic (the diagnosis is incidental) and it requires surgical correction. In this paper we present a 6 year-old girl affected by spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) who was diagnosed with anterior CDH. Four(More)
