Synchronous Urethral Repair During Prosthetic Surgery: Safety of Planned and Damage Control Approaches Using Suprapubic Tube Urinary Diversion.

J Sex Med 2019 Apr 5. Epub 2019 Apr 5.

Department of Urology, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX. Electronic address:

Background: Urethral injury during inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) or artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) placement is rare, and traditionally most prosthetic surgeons abort prosthetic implantation when urethral repair is necessary.

Aim: To report our experience with synchronous urethroplasty (SU) as a planned or damage control surgery during urologic prosthetic surgery, to evaluate the safety and outcomes of the procedure.

Methods: A retrospective review of our IPP and AUS database was completed to identify patients who underwent an SU between 2007 and 2018. Read More

Diagnosis and management of a remnant of the original fistula (ROOF) in males following surgery for anorectal malformations.

J Pediatr Surg 2019 Feb 28. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Center for Colorectal and Pelvic Reconstruction-Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus, OH 43205, USA.

Purpose: A complication of the surgical management of anorectal malformations (ARMs) is a retained remnant of the original fistula (ROOF) formerly called a posterior urethral diverticulum (PUD). A ROOF may have multiple presentations or may be incidentally discovered during the work-up of ARM after previous surgery. We sought to define the entity and the surgical indications for excision of a ROOF when found. Read More

2-octyl cyanoacrylate hypospadias repair dressing: a retrospective, controlled comparison.

Can J Urol 2019 Feb;26(1):9675-9679

Department of Urology, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock, Arkansas, USA.

Introduction: 2-octyl cyanoacrylate (OC) has been shown to be a viable option for usage following standard circumcision but data on its utilization following hypospadias repair is limited. Both OC and a standard waterproof transparent dressing (WD) are used following hypospadias repair at our children's hospital. Our hypothesis is that patients with distal hypospadias repair using OC for surgical dressing have similar outcomes as compared to patients with WD. Read More

Long-term outcomes and complications after laparoscopic-assisted anorectoplasty vs. posterior sagittal anorectoplasty for high- and intermediate-type anorectal malformation.

Pediatr Surg Int 2018 Oct 17;34(10):1111-1115. Epub 2018 Aug 17.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Saitama Children's Medical Center, Saitama, Japan.

Purpose: Laparoscopic-assisted anorectoplasty (LAARP) is a minimally invasive procedure in which the levator ani muscle is left to potentially improve postoperative fecal continence. This study aimed to retrospectively evaluate postoperative complications and long-term outcomes of fecal continence after LAARP and compare them to those after posterior sagittal anorectoplasty (PSARP).

Methods: Forty-five male patients with high and intermediate anorectal malformation (aged ≥ 4 years) who underwent LAARP or PSARP (LAARP 29, PSARP 16) from 1999 to 2013 were included. Read More

In Search of Mobile Applications for Urogynecology Providers.

Female Pelvic Med Reconstr Surg 2018 Apr 11. Epub 2018 Apr 11.

Introduction: Thousands of medical applications (apps) are available for mobile devices. Finding accurate, health care provider-centered apps may be time consuming and frustrating for urogynecologists. The objective of this study was to identify and evaluate urogynecology (urogyn) apps using a modified APPLICATIONS scoring system. Read More

Can Vet J 2018 03;59(3):243-248

Alta Vista Animal Hospital, 2616 Bank Street, Ottawa, Ontario K1T 1M9.

A 2-year-old neutered male dog with a history of urinary incontinence, recurrent urinary tract infections, and unilateral cryptorchidism was presented with an acute onset of perineal swelling. Urinary contrast studies revealed a urothelial lined structure in the perineum. Surgical resection of 80% to 90% of this structure, suspected to be a congenital urethral diverticulum, was successful.

[Experience of 157 vesikoscopic operations in children].

Urologiia 2017 Dec(6):59-64

N.N. Silishcheva Regional Childrens Clinical Hospital, Astrakhan, Russia.

Aim: Recent advances in the field of minimally invasive surgical technologies in children and adolescents have led to the development of vesicoscopic (transvesical, pneumoscopic) access (VA). Current limitations in using VA emphasize the need for further studies investigating surgical options for the management of various pathological conditions of the bladder and ureterovesical junction, the features of surgical techniques and the course of the early postoperative period when used in pediatric urological practice.

Materials And Methods: From 2013 to 2017, 157 patients (79 girls and 78 boys) aged between 2 months and 18 years (mean age 4. Read More

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Jan 23;2018. Epub 2018 Jan 23.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Logan Hospital, Meadowbrook, Queensland, Australia.

A 43-year-old woman with an anterior vaginal wall mass was referred to gynaecology outpatient for diagnosis and management. Clinical assessment was indicative of a urethral diverticulum, however MRI and ultrasound imaging suggested a Gartner's duct cyst. Following excision of the lesion, histology revealed evidence of an endometriotic cyst. Read More

Urethral diverticulum and urolithiasis in a female guinea pig (Cavia porcellus).

J Am Vet Med Assoc 2017 Dec;251(11):1313-1317

CASE DESCRIPTION A 5-year-old sexually intact female guinea pig was evaluated because of mild dysuria and a subcutaneous mass located cranioventral to the urogenital openings. CLINICAL FINDINGS Non-contrast-enhanced CT and surgical exploration of the distal aspect of the urethra revealed a urethral diverticulum with an intraluminal urolith. Analysis revealed that the urolith was composed of calcium carbonate and struvite. Read More

Pre-incision urethral plate width does not impact short-term Tubularized Incised Plate urethroplasty outcomes.

J Pediatr Urol 2017 Dec 19;13(6):625.e1-625.e6. Epub 2017 Jun 19.

PARC Urology, 5680 Frisco Square Blvd., Suite 2300, Frisco, 75033, TX, USA.

Introduction: Two reports have found that urethral plate (UP) widths <8 mm before tubularized incised plate (TIP) incision increased urethroplasty complications. The present study measured pre-incision UP width in consecutive boys undergoing TIP to determine if it affected outcomes.

Methods: The present study followed the method previously used by Holland and Smith, and Sarhan et al. Read More

Preliminary report on the effect of urethral diverticulum magnetic resonance imaging configuration on the incidence of new onset urodynamic stress urinary incontinence following excision.

Urol Ann 2017 Oct-Dec;9(4):321-323

Department of Urology, University College Hospital, London, UK.

Context: Excision of urethral diverticulum in females has been reported to be associated with new onset urodynamic stress urinary incontinence (USUI) in up to 49%.

Aims: We have assessed the incidence of new onset USUI in all patients having urethral diverticulum excision with Martius fat pad interposition under the care of a single surgeon between May 1, 2007, and December 1, 2011. The incidence of new onset USUI has been correlated with the preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) appearance of the urethral diverticulum. Read More

Department of Pediatric General and Urogenital Surgery, Juntendo University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Background/purpose: We evaluated routine intraoperative residual rectourethral fistula measurement (IRRFM) in 20 consecutive male imperforate anus with recto-bulbar (RB; n=12) or recto-prostatic (RP; n=8) fistula during laparoscopically assisted anorectal pull-through (LAARP) for preventing incomplete fistula excision (IFE) on mid-term follow-up.

Methods: Twenty consecutive LAARP performed at a mean age of 10months (range: 3-30) followed-up for a mean of 4.8years (range: 1. Read More
