PURPOSE Complete male epispadias is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by failed closure of the entire penopubic dorsal urethra. Epispadias repair is typically performed during infancy, and resultant genitourinary abnormalities can have a marked impact on adult life.

All of the patients' cholesterol levels were(More)

A retrospective review of patients undergoing surgical evaluation for cryptorchidism was performed. Patients treated for reasons unrelated(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to characterize long-term urogynecologic issues of women with a history of bladder exstrophy and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and to assess the impact of POP repair on continence and sexual function. DESIGN Patient demographics and surgical history related to exstrophy and POP were collected through chart review. Patient(More)
Anger and hazardous driving were explored in two studies for their possible explanatory role in the low cholesterol-violent mortality association. In Study 1, we obtained fasting blood samples and indices of anger and driving habits from 102 healthy young adults. Among men (but not women), lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels were(More)
BACKGROUND Surgical advancements have made cloacal exstrophy (CE) a survivable condition, though management remains complex. Urologic, orthopedic, colorectal and gynecologic interventions are not standardized, and the cost of this care is high. While the importance of a successful primary closure in terms of outcomes is known, the economic consequences of(More)
OBJECTIVES To identify the long-term sexual health outcomes and relationships in men born with classic bladder exstrophy (CBE). MATERIALS AND METHODS A prospectively maintained institutional database comprising 1248 patients with exstrophy-epispadias was used. Men aged ≥18 years with CBE were included in the study. A 42-question survey was designed using(More)
