A birth defect in which the URINARY BLADDER is malformed and exposed, inside out, and protruded through the ABDOMINAL WALL. It is caused by closure defects involving the top front surface of the bladder, as well as the lower abdominal wall; SKIN; MUSCLES; and the pubic bone.
A birth defect due to malformation of the URETHRA in which the urethral opening is above its normal location. In the male, the malformed urethra generally opens on the top or the side of the PENIS, but the urethra can also be open the entire length of the penis. In the female, the malformed urethral opening is often between the CLITORIS and the labia, or in the ABDOMEN.

Bladder exstrophy in a neonate at risk of transient myasthenia gravis: a role for remifentanil and epidural analgesia. (1/48)

Infants born to mothers with myasthenia gravis may exhibit a transient form of the disease, with similar sensitivity to non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking drugs. We report the case of an infant at risk who required major surgery when 48 h old for closure of bladder exstrophy. A combined epidural-general anaesthetic technique, with remifentanil supplementation, enabled us to avoid unnecessary neuromuscular blocking drugs and prolonged intensive care, which had been anticipated. The potential benefits of remifentanil and epidural analgesia in neonates are discussed.  (+info)

Life-threatening hypokalaemia and quadriparesis in a patient with ureterosigmoidostomy. (2/48)

We report quadriparesis as a result of severe hypokalaemia and acidosis in a 50-year-old man who had undergone ureterosigmoidostomy for bladder extrophy 48 years earlier. Aggressive suppletion with intravenous potassium and bicarbonate combined with potassium-sparing diuretics and ACE inhibitors resulted in complete restoration of the serum potassium and resolution of the neurological symptoms. The underlying mechanism as well as the treatment of hypokalaemia and hyperchloraemic metabolic acidosis after ureterosigmoidostomy are briefly discussed.  (+info)

Twin pregnancy achieved through TESE in an adult male exstrophy. (3/48)

Bladder exstrophy is a rare anomaly, it compromises bladder functions, and in males it occurs with an impairment of reproductive functions, because of erectile and ejaculatory deficit. Advancements in the surgical treatment of bladder exstrophy have allowed an improvement of the bladder functions while spontaneous conception is still impaired. This is a case report of a pregnancy and subsequent birth of twins following testicular sperm extraction, on a man born with classical bladder exstrophy with infertility due to an ejaculation.  (+info)

New sonographic finding for the prenatal diagnosis of bladder exstrophy: a case report. (4/48)

Bladder exstrophy is a very rare congenital malformation in which the anterior wall of the bladder is absent, and the posterior wall is exposed externally. Although sonographic findings of bladder exstrophy have been documented, we report a case presenting with a solid mass in the lower fetal abdomen with umbilical arteries running alongside the mass. The relationship between umbilical arteries and bladder exstrophy is a new sonographic finding which may be helpful in the prenatal diagnosis of this condition.  (+info)

The OEIS complex (omphalocele-exstrophy-imperforate anus-spinal defects): recurrence in sibs. (5/48)

The OEIS complex comprises a combination of defects including omphalocele, exstrophy of the cloaca, imperforate anus, and spinal defects. It may represent the most severe manifestation of a spectrum of birth defects, the exstrophy-epispadias sequence. The OEIS complex affects 1 in 200,000 to 400,000 pregnancies and is of unknown cause. The purpose of the current report is to document the occurrence of OEIS in sibs from separate pregnancies and suggest that some cases may have a genetic basis.  (+info)

Discordant sexual identity in some genetic males with cloacal exstrophy assigned to female sex at birth. (6/48)

BACKGROUND: Cloacal exstrophy is a rare, complex defect of the entire pelvis and its contents that occurs during embryogenesis and is associated with severe phallic inadequacy or phallic absence in genetic males. For about 25 years, neonatal assignment to female sex has been advocated for affected males to overcome the issue of phallic inadequacy, but data on outcome remain sparse. METHODS: We assessed all 16 genetic males in our cloacal-exstrophy clinic at the ages of 5 to 16 years. Fourteen underwent neonatal assignment to female sex socially, legally, and surgically; the parents of the remaining two refused to do so. Detailed questionnaires extensively evaluated the development of sexual role and identity, as defined by the subjects' persistent declarations of their sex. RESULTS: Eight of the 14 subjects assigned to female sex declared themselves male during the course of this study, whereas the 2 raised as males remained male. Subjects could be grouped according to their stated sexual identity. Five subjects were living as females; three were living with unclear sexual identity, although two of the three had declared themselves male; and eight were living as males, six of whom had reassigned themselves to male sex. All 16 subjects had moderate-to-marked interests and attitudes that were considered typical of males. Follow-up ranged from 34 to 98 months. CONCLUSIONS: Routine neonatal assignment of genetic males to female sex because of severe phallic inadequacy can result in unpredictable sexual identification. Clinical interventions in such children should be reexamined in the light of these findings.  (+info)

Using color Doppler sonography to identify the perivesical umbilical arteries: a useful method in the prenatal diagnosis of omphalocele-exstrophy-imperforate anus-spinal defects complex. (7/48)

OBJECTIVE: To describe the different prenatal sonographic findings in 3 cases of omphalocele-exstrophy-imperforate anus-spinal defects (OEIS) complex, or cloacal exstrophy. METHODS: Three patients with OEIS complex were examined by sonography. In 2 (cases 2 and 3) of the 3 cases, color Doppler sonography was applied to the area of cord insertion and the abdominal mass to determine the origin of the abdominal mass. RESULTS: Three cases of OEIS complex with different sonographic appearances are included in this series. An absent bladder without an abdominal mass but with bowel floating in the amniotic cavity was revealed in case 1; an absent bladder with a lower anterior abdominal mass was found in the second trimester in case 2; and a large cystlike mass located in the anterior abdominal wall was found in case 3. Color Doppler imaging showed that the abdominal mass originated from the urinary bladder in cases 2 and 3; therefore, OEIS complex was presumptively diagnosed antenatally in these cases. In all cases, OEIS complex was confirmed postnatally. CONCLUSIONS: Omphalocele-exstrophy-imperforate anus-spinal defects complex should be considered in patients with an absent bladder combined with either an anterior abdominal wall mass or defects. Special attention should be given to search for other combined anomalies. We suggest that color Doppler sonography for identifying the perivesical umbilical arteries is a very useful method in establishing of the diagnosis of OEIS complex.  (+info)

A combined vertical and horizontal pelvic osteotomy approach for repair of bladder exstrophy: the Dana experience. (8/48)

BACKGROUND: Bladder exstrophy is a severe congenital defect that requires a multidisciplinary treatment approach. Soft tissue repair may be successful during the first few days after birth, but a combination of pelvic osteotomies and bladder reconstruction is necessary later in life. The combination of externally fixed anterior and posterior osteotomies has biomechanical advantages over previous techniques for achieving primary bladder closure. OBJECTIVES: To describe our experience with a combined vertical and horizontal pelvic osteotomy approach for the repair of bladder exstrophy. METHODS: Four children underwent bladder exstrophy closure; the mean age at surgery was 19 months (range 9-33 months)... We stabilized the osteotomies with a small Synthes AO external fixator, 4.0 mm rod diameter. RESULTS: All four patients had successful bladder repair with no dehiscence; two of them achieved partial continence, and bladder neck reconstruction is planned for the other two. Three of the four patients sustained neurologic injury; two completely recovered, and the third continues to suffer from right drop foot. The average follow-up was 39 months (range 10-60 months). CONCLUSIONS: Vertical and horizontal pelvic osteotomies stabilized by external fixator and bladder repair is an effective treatment for bladder exstrophy.  (+info)

What is bladder exstrophy? Exstrophy is a rare and complex disorder in which the abdominal wall fails to close while a baby grows in the womb. The intestine may be abnormally connected to the bladder, and the urethra and genitals may not be completely formed. Exstrophy must be diagnosed before birth to prepare a multidisciplinary team and surgical plan. Our reconstructive surgeons form one of the few medical teams on the East Coast able to treat exstrophy and have trained with world leaders and innovators in the treatment of this disorder.

Bladder exstrophy repair is surgery to repair a birth defect of the bladder. The bladder is inside out. It is fused with the abdominal wall and is exposed. The pelvic bones are also separated.
Tommys birth was much anticipated by his parents Tom & Heather Ludlow and his older sisters Ashlyn & Eliza. During his twenty week ultrasound, the doctors became concerned about his bladder and further testing revealed a diagnosis of bladder exstrophy. After disregarding the doctors recommendation to abort Tommy, his parents were thrilled to welcome him into the world on June 1, 2005.. Although living in California, the Ludlows chose to deliver Tommy in Seattle so that he could promptly have surgery with Dr. Mitchell at Seattle Childrens Hospital where his complete closure and bilateral osteotomies were done when Tommy was one day old.. Tommy was a very active toddler and loved all sports but especially jumping on the trampoline. With multiple little surgeries and two more major surgeries at the age of 4 and 7 with Dr. Grady in Seattle, it was challenging for him to stay put during recovery and even more challenging to have his little sister, Avila wait on him.. By the age of 7, Tommy was ...

The aim of this work is to emphasize the importance of a differential diagnosis of von Brunns nests in cats from other urothelial neoplastic disorders, as transitional cell carcinoma, for a subsequent optimal care. Von Brunns nests and cysts are submucosal benign urothelial processes, related to irritative stimuli (calculi and urinary infections), characterized by an invagination with buds and clusters of normal urothelium in the lamina propria. They are common findings in the urinary bladder of human beings, but few cases have been described in dogs and cats. We report macroscopic, histopathological and, in one case, immunohistochemical features of these rare forms in the left ureters of two cats. Macroscopic evidence during surgery of ureteral nodules in two cats was accompanied by histopathological diagnosis and, in one case, by immunohistochemical assessment. Histopathology was coherent with a rare condition characterized by nests and islands of normal urothelium in the lamina propria and

Sometimes factors can occasionally interfere with bladder development, as is the case for children with cloacal exstrophy. This is the most severe birth defect in the exstrophy-epispadias complex. A child with this condition will have the bladder and a portion of the intestines, exposed outside the abdomen, with the bony pelvis open like a book.
A total of 156 (115 males, 41 females) patients met inclusion criteria. Overall failure rate was 30% (13% from the authors institution and 87% from outside centers). Patients who failed their initial closure with osteotomy presented to the authors institution with a mean pubic diastasis of 4.8 ± 1.5 cm (range 2.7-12.3). Following re-closure, average diastasis was 2.1 ± 0.6 cm (range 1.0-3.4). Types of failure consisted of 12 (26.1%) bladder dehiscence, 11 (23.9%) bladder prolapse, 9 (19.6%) bladder outlet obstruction, 7 (15.2%) vesicocutaneous fistula, and 7 (15.2%) complex failures. Failure rates were significantly higher for patients closed during 1990-2000 when compared to subsequent years (38.8% vs. 23.2%, p = 0.032). On multivariate analysis, use of Bucks traction (OR 0.11; 95% CI 0.02-0.60, p = 0.011) and immobilization time greater than 4 weeks (OR 0.19; 95% CI 0.04-0.86, p=0.031) had significantly lower odds of failure. Osteotomy performed by non-pediatric orthopedic surgeons had ...

One in 10,000 newborns is born with malformations of the bladder, intestines or genitals. These symptoms are part of the so-called bladder exstrophy epispadias complex, abbreviated BEEC. Since the disorder tends to run in families, it is assumed to have a genetic cause. However, up to now there has been disagreement as to exactly which genetic material is affected or whether there are even several genes involved.. The recently published study sheds light on this issue. Four years ago, researchers led by Prof. Dr. Heiko Reutter from the Institute of Human Genetics at the University of Bonn discovered a gene that is abnormal in sick children. The gene bears the cryptic abbreviation SLC20A1. We have now taken a closer look at its function, explains Magdalena Rieke, who is completing her doctorate under Prof. Reutter.. The researcher also benefited from the expertise of a university working group that only marginally deals with congenital malformations: Prof. Dr. Benjamin Odermatt researches the ...

They will be reimplanting his ureters through his bladder and repairing his bladder neck. He will have stints coming out of his belly through his bladder into his kidneys. Its risky at his age. Also its risky because his quality of life rides on it. If it works to keep him from renal failure, its successful. If his kidney/bladder infections, kidneys and blood pressure decline, its unsuccessful. If unsuccessful, they will pull his ureters to the skin and create a new type of exstrophy. At around 5 years old they would build a bigger bladder. That means he would have to cath himself everyday, and I would until he could. So its really stressful.

The recurrence relation a(n+1) = a(n) + a(n-1) defines the Fibonacci sequence for all (positive and negative) integer indices, given any two values with indices of opposite parity, e.g., a(0) and a(1), or a(-1) and a(42). Any other Fibonacci-type sequence {b(n)} satisfying this recurrence relation can be written as b(n) = b(1)*A000045(n) + b(0)*A000045(n-1). This can be seen from the fact that the set of all sequences satisfying a given linear recurrence relation of order 2 with constant coefficients forms a vector space of dimension two. So each element (sequence) of this space is a linear combination of any two elements which are not proportional to each other and thus form a base. The most natural choice of such a base could be the two sequences having (b(0), b(1)) = (0, 1) resp (1, 0). These are A000045 and n -, A000045(n-1) = A212804 (extended to negative indices, if needed). - M. F. Hasler, May 10 ...
Proof outline: each vertex has 1,2 or 3 neighbors. Let X (resp. Y) denote the number of vertices with 2 (resp. 3) neighbors. Then X + 2Y = n - 1 (split the non-root edges into pairs with a common parent vertex and singletons). Thus the number of choices for designating favorite neighbors is 2^X * 3^Y = 2^(n-1)(3/4)^Y. The distribution for Y is known because, under the rotation correspondence, a.k.a. the deBruijn-Morselt bijection, vertices with 2 children in an n-edge planted binary tree correspond to DDUs in a Dyck path, and DDUs have the Touchard distribution (A091894) with gf F(x,y) = (1-2x+2xy - sqrt(1-4x+4x^2-4x^2 y))/(2xy). The desired g.f., Sum_{n,=1} a(n)*x^n, is therefore 1/2*(F(2x,3/4)-1). (End ...

Objective: Reconstructive surgery of the lower urinary tract in children is reported with a high complication rate. The aim was to evaluate the complication rate at our institution. Material and methods: Between 2000 and 2010, 41 boys and 19 girls were consecutively operated on with augmentation with ileum (45), alternative CIC-channel (57) and bladder neck plasty (42) in isolation or as combined procedures in individuals with neurogenic bladder dysfunction NBD (42), bladder exstrophy-epispadias complex BEEC (13), isolated epispadias IE (2) and posterior urethral valves, PUV (3). Median age at surgery was 11 years (range 1.3 -21) and median follow-up time 7 years (1 -10). Complications were consecutively observed at follow-up according to a structured protocol. As first line care, specially trained nurses followed the patients and daily bladder irrigation was included in the CIC follow-up regimen. Results: In individuals with augmentation with ileum, of which all but one performed CIC
Hypospadias - The most common genital abnormality seen by pediatric urologists are hypospadias. In this condition the urethral opening is not at the tip of the penis but further down on the ventral surface (that is, between the head of the penis and the scrotum). Often this abnormality is associated with chordee, a curvature of the penis down towards the scrotum. Surgical repair is recommended for those children whose hypospadias will affect fertility, sexual intercourse, cosmesis (appearance), and the ability to void in the standing position. The cause of hypospadias is not exactly known. Epispadias - Epispadias includes a severe dorsal curvature of the penis up towards the abdominal wall as well as the urethral opening near the surface of the abdomen. It is usually associated with bladder exstrophy. Chordee - A chordee is a curvature of the penis. Some children are born with a chordee without associated hypospadias or epispadias. Male/Female Genitalia - During development, both the male and ...
Epispadias may either be associated with exstrophy or cloacal exstrophy; it can also exist as an apparent solitary abnormality of the penis. The urethra opens on the back of the penis, and the head of the penis is often split. Characteristic appearances of epispadias are also associated, in severe cases, with an abnormality of the bladder outlet, to the extent that continence may be a problem, particularly in girls, and in the majority of boys.. Epispadias is treated by repairing the penis and creating a urethra at the tip. This may usually be performed in a single stage operation. It is necessary, before this procedure, to assess the bladder outlet and gain some idea of the continence and potential for normal bladder function. If there are clearly issues at the level of the bladder neck, surgery may need to be performed on this also, to improve the continence outcome.. ...
Rectal prolapse may be partial, involving only the mucosa or complete, involving the entire wall of the rectum. Children with myelomeningocele and bladder exstrophy as well as children with cystic fibrosis are particularly at risk. Rarely it can be caused by acute diarrhea or straining while passing constipated stool. Most cases of prolapse do not require surgical correction. Infant prolapse often disappears without intervention. Rectal prolapse repair is advised for a continued rectal prolapse that does not clear up or is unresponsive to treatment of an underlying condition. ...

Epispadias: A birth defect due to malformation of the URETHRA in which the urethral opening is above its normal location. In the male, the malformed urethra generally opens on the top or the side of the PENIS, but the urethra can also be open the entire length of the penis. In the female, the malformed urethral opening is often between the CLITORIS and the labia, or in the ABDOMEN.

Question 1: ________ and epispadias are forms of abnormal development of the urethra in the male, where the meatus is not located at the distal end of the penis (it occurs lower than normal with hypospadias, and higher with epispadias). ...
Once the bladder is full, the nerves send a message to the brain that emptying must take place. Emptying can be controlled voluntarily. During emptying (Fig. 3c), the sphincter muscle relaxes, i.e., the bladder outlet opens and the urine can flow out. At the same time, the bladder muscle is tensed so that the urine is also squeezed out of the bladder. After emptying is completed, the sphincter muscle tightens again, the urethra is closed again and the bladder muscle relaxes (Fig. 3a).. The function of the kidneys and the urinary system are identical in men and women. However, there are differences in anatomy below the bladder - essentially determined by the sex organs.. In women, the urethra is only 3-4 cm long and ends in the vulval vestibule. As a result of this and the proximity of the urethra to the anus, women are generally more susceptible to urinary tract infections than men. In women, the pelvic floor, which is part of the bladder closure mechanism, is additionally perforated by the ...
One of the largest genetic studies focused on congenital scoliosis was led by Kusumis group. Together with clinical collaborators in Philadelphia and Toronto, the group identified the first case of a patient with congenital scoliosis due to having a single defective copy of the HES7 gene. Previous studies in mice had established that disruptions in this gene could lead to spinal defects, and loss of both copies of this gene had been found in severe cases of spinal deformities. The type of defect found in the patient in the ASU study was shown by Dunwoodies group to clearly affect the ability of the protein to function normally. This finding meant that having just one, instead of two functioning copies of a known gene from either mother or father, was a major risk factor for causing the abnormal formation of vertebrae in embryonic development ...
