A Simplified Management of Transverse Testicular Ectopia in Patients with Persistent Mullerian Duct Syndrome.

Urol J 2020 May 27;0(0):5685. Epub 2020 May 27.

Department of Pediatric Endocrinology, Ospedale Pediatrico Bambino Gesù, Rome, Italy.

Persistent müllerian duct syndrome (PMDS) in the majority of cases is discovered during surgery for inguinal hernia or cryptorchidism. A transverse testicular ectopia (TTE) with cryptorchidism may be very rarely associated to PMDS. Assuming that müllerian remnants have a very low malignant degeneration potential if compared to the malignancy risk of an undescended and not relocated testis, we describe a simplified surgical technique of orchiopexy that avoids an extensive anatomical dissection, in this way minimizing the risk of losing the deferential blood supply to the testis.

Arch Argent Pediatr 2020 Jun;118(3):180-186

Departamento de Pediatría, Servicio de Neonatología, Hospital Italiano de Buenos Aires, Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Introduction: Morbidity and mortality are high in congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Some tools help to predict survival, both prenatally (observed/expected lung-to-head ratio [OELHR], presence of the liver in the chest) and postnatally (Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Study Group [CDHSG] score). Our objective was to identify the risk factors associated with mortality and estimate the risk-adjusted mortality in the prenatal period in the subgroup of patients with isolated left-sided hernia.

Late parastomal evisceration.

Int J Colorectal Dis 2020 May 25. Epub 2020 May 25.

Department of Surgery, Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valencia, Valencia, Spain.

Background: Parastomal evisceration is a very uncommon complication of stomas with only few cases reported in the literature. This complication can be developed in the early postoperative period due to technical aspects of stoma creation, but late parastomal evisceration appearing after 6 months from surgery is an exceptional condition. Herein, we present a rare case of a patient with late parastomal evisceration. Read More
