PURPOSE The results of transurethral marsupialization as treatment for medial prostatic cysts were assessed. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between June 1992 and August 1994 we performed transrectal ultrasound on 704 patients with symptoms of bladder outlet obstruction or lower urinary tract symptoms and a medical prostatic cyst was found in 34 (5%). Transurethral(More)
PURPOSE We proved the accuracy of the transverse diameter of the rectum on ultrasonography as an additional parameter for diagnosing constipation in children with lower urinary tract dysfunction. MATERIALS AND METHODS The diameter of the rectum on bladder ultrasonography in a constipated group of patients with dysfunctional voiding was compared to this(More)
PURPOSE Girls with an anterior deflected urinary stream (ADUS) cannot void in the ideal toileting position, resulting in lower success rates of behavioral training programs. Purpose was to study prospectively the clinical effects of surgical meatus correction for ADUS in girls with dysfunctional voiding (DV). METHODS A cohort of 171 DV patients aged 6-12(More)
PURPOSE The treatment of ectopic ureterocele is controversial. In addition to debate on optimal therapy, discussion exists on whether there is further risk of deteriorating bladder function after extensive bladder surgery during the first year of life, which is a reason to postpone surgery. In a prospective nonrandomized trial we treated 40 patients(More)
Anorectal malformation is a complex anomaly with a broad variety of expressions. There are different techniques available for correction of the anomaly, all with their specific morbidity. Recently, much attention has been paid to acquired posterior urethral diverticulum after correction of anorectal malformation. The aim of this retrospective study was to(More)
PURPOSE We assessed the long-term results of total reconstructive bladder surgery as initial treatment of ectopic ureteroceles. MATERIALS AND METHODS Long-term followup was evaluated in 54 children treated for ectopic ureteroceles with total upper and lower urinary tract reconstructive surgery between 1988 and 2003, with special focus on the primary(More)
Between March 1985 and January 1987 2547 ESWL treatments were performed on 2064 patients, including 33 boys and 28 girls younger than 18 years. Almost identical results were obtained in children as in adults. All stones desintegrated and success was achieved in 97%; 79% was considered stone-free after 6 months and 18% had passable asymptomatic residual(More)
OBJECTIVE Renal scarring and renal failure remain life-threatening for children born with spinal dysraphism. We reviewed our data of spina bifida patients to evaluate whether optimal treatment of the neurogenic bladder from birth onwards can preserve kidney function. METHODS We reviewed data on all newborns with spinal dysraphism who were referred to our(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the outcome of using sling suspensions combined with clean intermittent catheterization (CIC) in patients with spina bifida, of whom a third are incontinent through pelvic floor paralysis. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between March 1992 and April 1997, 14 male patients (mean age at surgery 11.7 years, range 6.5-15.2) with spina bifida and(More)
AIMS To determine whether a lasting therapeutic effect can be expected from long-term antimuscarinic therapy for neurogenic detrusor overactivity in spina bifida and to answer the question whether detrusor overactivity in spina bifida children with detrusor/sphincter dyssynergia is primarily based on the neuropathy or, in part, can be a secondary detrusor(More)
