INTRODUCTION: Many studies have been performed on adult patients to reveal the relationship between Hounsfield unit (HU) value and composition of stone, but none have focused on childhood. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to predict stone composition by HU properties in pre-intervention non-contrast computed tomography (NCCT) in children. This could help to orient patients towards more successful interventions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data of 94 children, whose pre-intervention NCCT and post-interventional stone analysis were available were included...

PURPOSE: We describe a feasible flexible ureteroscopy (fURS) technique with the latest instruments to and to discuss their advantages. METHODS: Three patients underwent a fURS for stone treatment. A 7F angled orifice catheter and a hydrophilic angled tip stiff wire is used to guide the wire in the proper ureteral direction sighting the ureter allowing the use of a 10/12 ureteral access sheath. A single use ureteroscope was used. RESULTS: All of them had successful ureteral access and laser lithotripsy being stone free endoscopically...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to assess the positive predictive value of a prenatal ultrasound diagnosis of hypospadias when compared with postnatal diagnosis based on physical exam. METHODS: We retrospectively identified all pregnant women between 2004 and 2014 who were either referred to our fetal care center carrying a fetus with an ultrasound diagnosis of possible hypospadias or who had a new diagnosis of hypospadias after imaging in our center. RESULTS: A total of 32 cases of possible hypospadias were identified, with our fetal center ultrasound suggesting hypospadias in 25 of the 32 cases (78%)...

INTRODUCTION: Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) are one of the leading preventable causes of intellectual disabilities (ID). Not much is known about the topic of pediatric incontinence related to FASD, for example nocturnal enuresis (NE), daytime urinary incontinence (DUI), and fecal incontinence (FI). So far, incontinence problems have been examined among children with other specific syndromes. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study is to investigate the possible presence of incontinence among children with FASD in a South African cohort...

INTRODUCTION: Upper tract damage (UTD) is a life-threatening complication of neurogenic bladder (NB). Early identification of risk factors for UTD and institution of remedial measures may probably prevent UTD. The aim was to study the predictors of UTD in children 2 years or older with NB. METHOD: This cross-sectional, observational study over 2 years included 30 children. UTD was defined as serum creatinine of >1 mg/dL or society of fetal urology grade III-IV hydronephrosis or hydroureteronephrosis on ultrasonography or renal scars on (99)(m)technetium dimercaptosuccinic scan or subnormal glomerular filtration rate (GFR) for age...

INTRODUCTION: Abdominoplasty is an important component of the management of children with prune belly syndrome (PBS). While there are features of the abdominal defect in PBS which are common to all patients, there will be differences unique to each patient that should be taken into consideration in surgical planning. Specifically, we have come to realize that although the Monfort procedure assumes a symmetric pattern of abdominal wall laxity, this symmetry is rarely present. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this report is to describe our modifications and review our outcomes for the Monfort procedure which more completely address correction of the abdominal wall laxity including both common and uncommon features while positioning the umbilicus to a more anatomically correct position (Figure)...

OBJECTIVES: Ureterocele management is considered to be one of the famous debates in pediatric urology. Despite some considering transurethral ureterocele incision (TUI) as a temporary line of treatment, others have reported good results in terms of being a definitive treatment. The present study evaluated the feasibility of TUI as a definitive line of management. Moreover, it studied the impact of presentation on the outcomes. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The charts of patients who had ureteroceles from 1995 to 2015 were retrospectively reviewed...

INTRODUCTION: Bladder anchoring during pneumovesical ureteric reimplantation (PUR) can be difficult. Here we describe our new technique using a T-fastener (Kimberly Clark, Irving, TX, USA) to tackle this problem. METHODS: A T-fastener has been applied to all patients who underwent PUR in our center since 2011. RESULTS: Seventeen consecutive cases were performed between 2011 and 2015. No bladder dislodgement or air leak was observed in any of the operations...

OBJECTIVE: Pediatric kidney transplantation (KT) in small children is assumed to be related to potential surgical complications that may cause severe morbidity and graft loss. The aim of our study was to analyze the outcome of KT recipients weighing ≤15 kg, focusing on surgical complications, associated morbidity and mortality, as well as allograft loss. METHODS: We reviewed our retrospective institutional database for recipients of KT between January 2000 and December 2014 with body weight ≤15 kg...

INTRODUCTION: The likelihood of detecting vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) after febrile urinary tract infections (UTI) in children logically should correlate with the correct diagnosis of the UTI. Beneath the unspecific symptoms of fever urine analysis is the main diagnostic criterion for the exact diagnosis of febrile UTIs in children. Use of inadequate urine sampling techniques during diagnosis may lead to impaired accuracy in UTI diagnosis. This could lead to the assumption that children, having diagnosed their UTI by the use of possibly inadequate urine sampling techniques should not be evaluated as consequently compared to those, where the diagnosis relied on sterile urine sampling techniques...

INTRODUCTION: To investigate a modified transverse preputial island flap repair which is performed in an attempt to reduce the complications following one-stage repair of proximal hypospadias with chordee. METHODS: Briefly, the two ends of the flap were trimmed into V shape and anastomosed with the spatulated urethra proximally and urethral plate distally before tubularization. Then the in situ tubularization of the flap was performed. The procedure was performed in our hospital on 32 patients (mean age = 11 months)...

OBJECTIVES: Almost 20 years after Cartwright et al. (1996) demonstrated the feasibility and effectiveness of clinic meatotomy (CM) under topical lidocaine and prilocaine (EMLA) anesthesia, 50% of meatotomies are still performed under general anesthesia (GA) (Godley et al., 2015). The cost of a meatotomy under GA is approximately 10 times the cost of CM in the present practice. This study presented the outcomes for CM under topical anesthesia, in consecutive patients who presented with meatal stenosis secondary to circumcision...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the functional and cosmetic result of modified-triple incision preputial plasty for surgical management of phimosis in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This prospective study involved all consecutive children (age 3-15) with phimosis, managed at our Institution in a one-year period. All patients unable to retract the foreskin and symptomatic with episodes of posthitis or balanoposthitis or ballooning of the foreskin with voiding were initially included...

Hypospadias is commonly assessed and repaired by pediatric urologists. Mild, distal hypospadias is generally more a cosmetic problem than a functional one and is more frequently encountered than severe, proximal hypospadias. Outcomes following repair, especially of mild phenotypes, are important to understand, but range widely in timing and measurability. Surgical complications, postoperative satisfaction of parents, patients, surgeons and even lay observers, urinary function, sexual function, and quality of life all may be considered as relevant outcomes of hypospadias repair...
