Calder presented the first pyloric atresia case in 1749 and Touroff, Sussman, Meltz, and their colleagues presented the first successful operation in 1940. PA has 3 types of anatomic variations: (1) type A, pyloric membrane or web; (2) type B, the pyloric channel is a solid cord; and (3) type C, in which(More)
Congenital short bowel with functional intestinal obstruction and absence of appendix vermiformis is a very rare condition with poor prognosis. Seventeen cases of congenital short bowel have been reported previously in the literature. The etiology is unknown. In this report, a case of congenital short bowel, combined with functional intestinal obstruction,(More)
The aim of this study was to find a new alternate method for bladder exstrophies with small capacity and inelasticity, and to resolve complications of other bladder augmentation techniques. In 50 Wistar albino rats, a large bladder defect was created excising at least one half of their original bladder, keeping the peritrigonal zone intact. In each rat, a(More)
A case of gastroschisis complicated by vanishing bowel and presenting as jejunal atresia is reported that is uniquely different from previously reported cases. Following delivery, complete closure of the abdominal wall with a small fascial defect was observed. Complete healing of this fascial defect was observed at 1 month of age.
This study was conducted to evaluate the morbidity and mortality among the newborns hospitalized for pneumothorax. The data of 83 cases were analysed retrospectively according to gestational age, weight, underlying primary lung pathology, age of admittance, side of pneumothorax, drainage time, need for mechanical ventilation and mortality. Male: Female(More)
Ingested magnets can cause intestinal fistulas, perforation, and obstruction. There have been reports of magnet ingestion causing intestinal volvulus, but multiple magnet ingestion causing perforation and intestinal volvulus in a child is very unusual. We report the case of a 4-year-old girl, who ingested four magnets she acquired as toys, which caused(More)
A huge and extremely organoid mass, protruding from the mouth of a newborn and causing respiratory embarrassment, was resected. It was difficult to make a clear distinction whether this mass was fetus in fetu or a highly organoid epignathus dealing with the findings obtained from its gross and histological examination of the mass.
The records of 100 children with hydatid disease were reviewed retrospectively from 1978 to 1997; 43 were girls and 57 were boys. The mean age was 9.14 years; 61 patients had 124 hepatic cysts. Presenting symptoms were asymptomatic abdominal masses, found masses incidentally during ultrasonography (US), or acute abdomen. Plain X-ray films, US, or(More)
Hydatid disease, a common health problem in Turkey as in many countries, should be included in the differential diagnosis of all patients presenting with a cystic mass in the abdominal or thoracic cavity. Previously, surgery had been the main form of treatment. But with the introduction of preoperative medication with albendazole, treating this disease(More)
BACKGROUND The effects of different sex hormones on urodynamics in female rabbits have been investigated previously. Estrogen induces an increase in bladder capacity and compliance, whereas testosterone and progesterone reduced bladder capacity and compliance. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of sex hormones on bladder(More)
