AIM The aim of this study is to determine whether laparoscopic repair (LR) of inguinal hernia is superior to open repair (OR) in bilateral cases. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Sixty-two boys older than 6 years with bilateral hernias were included in our prospective, randomized, single-blinded clinical trial. All patients were administered morphine via(More)
BACKGROUND A prospective study was performed to evaluate the effect of inguinal hernia repairs on the genitofemoral nerve (GFN), and to compare postoperative electrophysiologic changes in the GFN of patients who had undergone either open or laparoscopic surgery. METHODS Seventy patients with a mean age of 6.48 ± 3.49 were enrolled in the study. Either(More)
Children commonly undergo vesicograms for diagnosing vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). This requires urethral catheterization with transurethral replacement. We report misdiagnosed or related complications due to indwelling urethral catheters unintentionally placed in the ureter. From our computerized urology records over an 18-year period from January 1995 to(More)
The symptomatic presentation of Meckel's diverticulum (MD) depends on a person's age, sex, and presence or absence of ectopic gastric tissue. There are no differences in the prevalence of asymptomatic MD between males and females; however, symptomatic MD has a distinct male predominance with a male-to-female ratio ranging from 2:1 to 5:1 in children.(More)
Aim. Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is one of the most common conditions seen in pediatric urology. Fortunately, there are many treatment options for this disorder. The grading system for VUR varies among doctors, and the literature on its reliability is sparse. Here, we assessed the effectiveness of the current VUR grading system. Methods. A series of 40(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate, using Doppler ultrasonography, the effects of different hernia repair techniques on testicular perfusion in the pediatric age group. METHODS This study was based on a prospective clinical trial of 72 pediatric patients over 2 years of age with unilateral inguinal hernia. They were operated on using 1 of 3(More)
BACKGROUND To assess the effectiveness of the current vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) grading system according to the international classification of VUR (ICVUR) and to evaluate whether VUR grading accuracy could be improved by renal ultrasonography (RU) according to the Society for Fetal Urology (SFU) grading system. OBJECTIVES Therefore, this study assessed(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aims to evaluate the effect of bladder diverticula (BD) on bladder function using a rabbit model, based on urodynamic findings. METHODS A total of 32 New Zealand white rabbits were randomly assigned to four groups: (1) sham surgery; (2) a single, 1-cm-diameter BD; (3) a single, large, 3-cm-diameter BD; and (4) four (multi)(More)
We aimed to compare laparoscopic hernia repair and open hernia repair in recurrent cases after first open repair according to the length of time taken to perform the procedure. Between November 2009 and December 2011, the medical records of 26 male paediatric patients who were treated with laparoscopic surgery (with Schier’s intracorporal “N” suture(More)
BACKGROUND The primary objective of this study was to compare triple therapy with ertapenem treatments in pediatric patients with perforated appendicitis, especially in terms of postoperative infectious complications. The secondary objective of this study was to assess the relative impact of therapy with ertapenem and triple antibiotic regimen on the(More)
