OBJECTIVE Delayed exstrophy repair (DER) represents an alternative to early neonatal bladder closure. This study aims to define the consequence of DER on bladder growth in bladder exstrophy patients who underwent routine DER, compared with those who underwent immediate postnatal reconstruction. METHODS Between 2000 and 2005, classic bladder exstrophy patients referred to the authors' institution underwent early neonatal bladder closure (group 1). Subsequently, classic bladder exstrophy… CONTINUE READING
