Use of cadaveric fascia lata for closure of bladder exstrophy with diplomyelia.

Abstract

We describe a technique for the repair of bladder exstrophy using cadaveric fascia lata. The graft is folded in a four-layer configuration, passed through the obturator foramina, and then wrapped and anchored in front of the pubis. The resultant ring-shaped graft is useful when complex deformities preclude proper apposition of the pelvis anteriorly.
