Thoracoscopic repair of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is now widely performed by pediatric surgeons. We compare our experience with this operation versus the results for a group of CDH patients treated by laparotomy at the same center over the same period. From January 2008 to December 2011, we reviewed the medical records of 50 neonates who(More)
PURPOSE Intra-abdominal cystic masses originating from the retroperitoneum, mesentery or omentum are very rare and mostly benign tumors, but sometimes present as a complicated cyst encasing the major organs. METHODS We analyzed the clinical findings, histologic diagnosis, and surgical outcomes in children who underwent operation for retroperitoneal,(More)
BACKGROUND Meconium peritonitis is a sterile chemical peritonitis resulting from intrauterine bowel perforation. With the development of neonatal care, the prognosis of meconium peritonitis improved much. We report our clinical experience. METHODS The medical records of patients with meconium peritonitis admitted to the Asan Medical Center from June 1989(More)
The incidence of transplanted kidneys derived from elderly donors is increasing because of the larger waiting lists and greater age of patients with end-stage renal failure. Compared with young donors, one of the problems is the heightened risk of neoplasm transmission. We report 2 cases of kidney recipients, both of whom developed a sarcomatoid renal cell(More)
Heterotopic pancreas (HP) is defined as pancreatic tissue lacking anatomic and vascular continuity with the main body of the pancreas. Most are asymptomatic, but can cause ulcer, bleeding, intussusception, and mechanical obstruction. Herein, we presented one case of HP presented as duodenal tumor causing duodenal obstruction. A 7-year-old girl visited the(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to retrospectively review the classification, surgical experience, and the functional outcome of anorectal malformations (ARMs) according the type of ARM. METHODS A total of 311 children (M:F=200:111) who underwent surgical treatment for ARM between 1990 and 2011 were reviewed. Functional outcomes were evaluated using(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study is to present our experience with minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for congenital cystic adenomatoid malformations (CCAMs). METHODS The medical records of infants under 2 years of age who underwent operation for a CCAM from 2009 to 2014 were retrospectively reviewed. RESULTS MIS (9 of thoracoscopy and 1 of laparoscopy) was(More)

PURPOSE I introduce the use of transanal intestinal long tube (TILT) using nasogastric tube. TILT passes from anus to the anastomosis, helping to decompress a dilated bowel loop. METHODS TILT procedure was limited to those patients predicting a severe luminal size discrepancy after intestinal anastomosis, and who had postoperative prolonged ileus. We(More)
Intraluminal small bowel hematoma has been rarely reported in children, as a rare cause of small bowel obstruction. We present a case of an intraluminal ileal hematoma presenting as small bowel obstruction in a child. Computed Tomography (CT) indicated a large intraluminal hyperdense lesion in the distal ileum as the cause of small bowel obstruction.(More)
INTRODUCTION Children with late-presenting Hirschsprung's disease (HD) are classically treated by a staged operation with enterostomy. An alternative may be one-stage laparoscopy-assisted endorectal pull-through, which has cosmetic advantages. This case-series report describes the outcomes of children with late-presenting HD who underwent this procedure. (More)
