AIMS AND OBJECTIVES Delayed management of anorectal malformation (ARM) increases the surgical and functional complications for the patient. We defined "delayed presentation of ARM" and reviewed our patients with ARM to find out the incidence and causes of delayed presentation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients satisfying the criteria of "delayed presentation… (More)
AIM To compare tunica vaginalis with dartos flap as soft tissue cover in primary hypospadias repair. MATERIALS AND METHODS 25 cases (age range: 12-132 months; all fresh cases) of primary hypospadias were prospectively repaired by tubularized incised plate (TIP)/TIP + graft urethroplasty using tunica vaginalis flap (TVF) as soft tissue cover to… (More)
Distal migration of ventriculoperitoneal shunt is rare. We present this unusual complication in 5 patients. The lower end of the shunt was extruded from right lumbar region, cervical area, umbilicus and rectum. The cause of such extrusion is not known. The patients were managed by shunt removal followed by shunt replacement on the opposite side.
OBJECTIVES Double dorsal dartos flap coverage of the neourethra has been reported to be superior to single flap coverage for the prevention of urethrocutaneous fistula following hypospadias surgery. Conventional flap coverage involves covering the entire neourethra with vascularised flap. We describe a "limited" double dorsal dartos flap coverage of the… (More)
Spontaneous perforation of extrahepatic bile duct is rare. The cause is idiopathic once trauma and choledochal cyst are ruled out. The condition presents a diagnostic dilemma. Preoperative recognition is necessary as early surgical intervention gives excellent prognosis. We report clinical observations made in three cases with acute presentations. Diagnosis… (More)
The aim of this study is to report a series of patients with the Azygos vein preserved during the surgery for esophageal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula (EA&TEF), highlighting the advantages in terms of survival and prevention of anastomotic leak. Ninety-six neonates with EA&TEF, admitted to the Department of Pediatric Surgery, King George Medical… (More)
Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST) are rare in paediatric patients and have a discrete clinicopathological and molecular divergence from that observed in adults. In the present report we present a case of a 2-month-old female in whom colonic gastrointestinal stromal tumour acted as a lead point of colocolic intussusception. Laparoscopically assisted… (More)
PURPOSE We report 18 years' experience of traumatic urethral strictures in boys with emphasis on recurrent strictures. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-four boys with pelvic fracture urethral strictures underwent 35 repairs: 23 in the primary group (initial suprapubic cystostomy, but no urethral repair) and 12 in the re-do group (previously failed attempt(s)… (More)
Neural tube defect with its global involvement of nervous system has lot of implications. There is cotroversy in terms of timing of repair, simultaneous or metachronous ventriculoperitoneal shunt and criteria for shunt surgery in neonatal age. We are reporting our approach and results of management of this disease in neonatal period.
