Recent literature stresses various factors that influence outcome in neonates with esophageal atresia (EA), including associated congenital anomalies, ventilator dependency, and gap length. Although the existing modalities can fairly accurately assess the first two factors, a comparable modality for assessing the interpouch gap in a natural unstretched(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)
We report herein the case of an 11-year-old girl found to have an epithelioid hemangioendothelioma of the greater omentum. The child presented with a 4-month history of vague lower abdominal pain and gradually increasing generalized distension. Her symptoms and signs could not be ascribed to any specific organ system. Ultrasonography and computerized axial(More)
A rare example of rachipagus conjoint parasitic twinning in a newborn girl is described. A lipomatous mass with an attached hind limb (with fused feet) and a rudimentary vertebral arch were found adherent to the dorsal vertebral arches of the autosite in the thoracolumbar region. There was a clear cleavage plane between the autosite and the parasite.(More)
OBJECTIVE To find the prevalence of associated anomalies in children with anorectal malformation (ARM). METHODS One hundred and forty patients (80 males and 60 females) with expand were studied to detect associated anomalies and to find their prevalence. High and low type of ARM was seen in 52.14% and 47.86% of patients respectively. Associated anomalies(More)
The impact of head trauma leads to generation of forces that cause both the intracranial injuries and loss of consciousness. Glasgow Coma Score (GCS) and cranial CT scan are widely used to gauge the severity of head injury. Milder cranial impacts insufficient to cause intracranial injuries generally cause no or minimal loss of consciousness. Nevertheless,(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE The aim of this study was to compare the incidences of various associated anomalies among subjects with high and low anorectal malformation (ARM), study the coexistence of these anomalies, and compare their frequency with those quoted in the existing literature. METHODS Ten years of data (from January 1993 through December 2002) on the(More)
Duplication cyst and segmental dilatation are rare congenital anomalies of the gastrointestinal tract, both of which are known to result in intestinal obstruction. We describe herein a case of intestinal obstruction in a neonate, caused by a duplication cyst in the cecum. A small dilated segment of ileum was also present at the site where Meckel's(More)
Posttraumatic intra-abdominal cysts generally develop in relation to solid abdominal organs and most originate as a result of the organization of fluid or blood collection after trauma. They lack true endothelial lining and are hence called "pseudocysts." We report herein the rare case of a traumatic pseudocyst of the greater omentum in a 6-year-old child(More)
We report the case of a large benign cystic teratoma of the mesosigmoid in a 2-year-old child. To the best of our knowledge, this type of lesion has never been described in the English literature, although there are a few reports of teratomas arising from the greater and lesser omentum. There was diagnostic confusion due to the rarity of a teratoma arising(More)
