INTRODUCTION: Recent reports have suggested that caudal anesthesia may be associated with an increased risk of postoperative surgical complications. We examined our experience with caudal anesthesia in hypospadias repair to evaluate for increased risk of urethrocutaneous fistula or glanular dehiscence. METHODS: All hypospadias repairs performed by a single surgeon in 2001-2014 were reviewed. Staged or revision surgeries were excluded. Patient age, weight, hypospadias severity, surgery duration, month and year of surgery, caudal anesthesia use, and postoperative complications were recorded...

OBJECTIVE: Congenital penile torsion is a three-dimensional deformity with helical rotation of the distal corporal bodies with the penile crurae remaining fixed to the pubic rami. The first case of congenital penile torsion (hypospadias) was described in 1857. Isolated penile torsion is an under-reported anomaly. The reported incidence of isolated penile torsion is 1.7-27% and severe torsion is 0.7%. There are no studies available from Indian subcontinent on the incidence of isolated penile torque...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: A great variety of different surgical techniques has been described for proximal hypospadias repair and an ideal tissue has not been determined yet. We present our 10 years of surgical experience using a bladder mucosal graft for urethroplasty. STUDY DESIGN: Bladder mucosal graft urethroplasty was performed between 2005 and 2015 in 50 patients with severe proximal hypospadias. The mean age of patients was 45.1 months (range 24-164 months)...

PURPOSE: To know the limits of the preservation of the urethral plate in the correction of the curvature associated with proximal hypospadias. METHODS: From January 2002 to January 2015, we treated 224 patients of proximal hypospadias. In 182 cases, we used of the lateral pictures taken during the successive saline erection tests to measure the correction obtained after each stage. RESULTS: The analysis of the lateral pictures taken at the successive saline erection tests clearly demonstrated that release of the skin and dartos fascia provides an important correction of the chordee...

The most recent systematic literature reviews and meta-analyses have indicated significant and nutritionally-relevant composition differences between organic and conventional foods. This included higher antioxidant, but lower cadmium and pesticide levels in organic crops, and higher omega-3 fatty acids concentrations in organic meat and dairy products. Also, results from a small number of human cohort studies indicate that there are positive associations between organic food consumption and reduced risk/incidence of certain acute diseases (e...

INTRODUCTION: Pediatric presentations of a prostatic utricle have received only scant attention. Though recognized with increased frequency in boys with hypospadias, little is described about their incidence and potential for morbidity in boys with normal external genitalia. METHODS: We initially reviewed a cohort of 64 patients with hypospadias seen over a 3-year period to determine the frequency of investigative lower urinary tract studies and utricle identification...

The Silver-Russell syndrome (SRS) is a rare imprinting disease associated with pre- and postnatal growth retardation, craniofacial features, and asymmetry. Genitourinary abnormalities are seen in up to 20% of affected individuals. Apart from structural renal anomalies, cryptorchidism and hypospadias occur frequently in boys, while girls often have anomalies similar to those in Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome with congenital hypoplasia or aplasia of the uterus and upper part of the vagina. Frequently hypospadias repair and orchiopexy are difficult because of lack of buccal mucosa due to facial dysmorphism and intraabdominal position of the testicles, respectively...

INTRODUCTION: There are several techniques employed in the surgical treatment of total or partial penile reconstruction, hypospadias surgery, and urethral stricture. Urethral reconstruction is performed in different ways applying these techniques. OBJECTIVE: We evaluated use of a fibrovascular sheath to create a neo-urethra formed around a silicon tube. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We used nine male New Zealand rabbits for this study. In the first step, we placed a silicone tube under the skin in the lower abdomen of the rabbits and waited for the formation of a fibrovascular sheath to totally surround the tube...

A variety of mutations in the androgen receptor (AR) gene are linked to androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) or sexual development disorder. Here, we studied 15 patients with various degrees of disorders of genital hypoplasia from South China. Clinical data including basal hormone level, phenotype, karyotyping and SRY gene identification were documented. Exons with flanking intronic region of the AR gene were sequenced and analysed for mutations, and a total of eight mutations were identified in the AR gene...

BACKGROUND: Burden of disease (BoD) as measured by Disability-Adjusted Life Years (DALYs) is one of the criteria for priority-setting in health care resource allocation. DALYs incorporate disability weights (DWs), which are currently expert-derived estimates or non-existent for most pediatric surgical conditions. The objective of this study is to establish DWs for a subset of key pediatric congenital anomalies using a range of health valuation metrics with caregivers in both high- and low-resource settings...

OBJECTIVE: Testicular dysgenesis syndrome (TDS) comprises testicular germ cell cancer, cryptorchidism and some cases of male infertility and hypospadias, which can be linked to impairment of intrauterine gonadal development. Among histological signs of TDS, large Leydig cell (LC) clusters (micronodules) are frequently present. This study aimed to investigate possible associations of LC micronodules with the presence of Reinke crystals and hormonal function of LCs, the latter primarily reflected by serum concentrations of luteinising hormone (LH) and testosterone, in patients with TDS...
