Altered expression of interstitial cells of Cajal in congenital ureteropelvic junction obstruction.
TLDR
This study shows for the first time the immuno-expression of c-Kit positive ICCs in the proximal part of the normal human upper ureter, which may have a role in the failure of transmission of peristaltic waves across the UPJ. Expand
Controversies concerning diagnostic guidelines for anomalies of the enteric nervous system: a report from the fourth International Symposium on Hirschsprung's disease and related neurocristopathies.
TLDR
The gold standards in the preoperative diagnosis of IDs are described, enlighting the importance of rectal suction biopsy in the diagnostic workup and the need for an adequate intraoperative pathological evaluation of the extent of IDs to avoid postoperative complications. Expand
Subureteral dextranomer/hyaluronic acid injection as first line treatment in the management of high grade vesicoureteral reflux.
TLDR
Endoscopic subureteral injection of Deflux is excellent first line treatment in children with high grade vesicoureteral reflux, and it can be easily repeated in failed cases. Expand
Delayed primary anastomosis for management of long-gap esophageal atresia: a meta-analysis of complications and long-term outcome
TLDR
DPA provides good long-term functional results, however, the high incidence of GER and associated strictures requires early intervention to prevent feeding problems, and the majority of patients could eat without swallowing difficulties at follow-up. Expand
Skip segment Hirschsprung’s disease: a systematic review
TLDR
The existence of a skip area of normally innervated colon in TCA may influence surgical management, enabling surgeons to preserve and use the ganglionated skip area during pull-through operations. Expand
New insights into the pathogenesis of Hirschsprung’s associated enterocolitis
TLDR
Theories of pathogenesis of Hirschsprung’s disease are delineated and the evidence supporting or otherwise contradicting each other is demonstrated. Expand
Megacystis microcolon intestinal hypoperistalsis syndrome: systematic review of outcome
TLDR
The survival in MMIHS in recent years has improved, and the majority of survivors are reported to be free of parenteral nutrition and show improving gastric emptying, however, intermittent catheterisation remains obligatory due to persistent bladder dysfunction. Expand
Treatment of vesicoureteric reflux by endoscopic injection of Teflon.
TLDR
Endoscopic injection of Teflon paste behind the intravesical ureter corrects reflux in girls with grade III-V vesicoureteric reflux and may be done as a day procedure, and avoids open surgery. Expand
Associated urological anomalies in children with unilateral renal agenesis.
TLDR
Nearly half of the patients with unilateral renal agenesis had associated urological anomalies, and Vesicoureteral reflux was the most common associated anomaly and it was usually of high grade. Expand
