PURPOSE We evaluated the long-term effects of ileocystoplasty on linear growth, serum electrolytes, acid-base profile and bone mineral density (BMD) in a group of neurologically intact children with a mean followup of 8.9 years. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between 1988 and 1997, 9 girls and 16 boys with a mean age of 6 years (range 1 month to 14 years) underwent ileocystoplasty for etiologies other than myelomeningocele and neuropathic bladder. Indications for ileocystoplasty were small… CONTINUE READING
