1/432. magnetic resonance imaging detection of symptomatic noncommunicating intraurethral wall diverticula in women.

    PURPOSE: We documented the merit of endorectal coil magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for detecting intraurethral wall diverticula in women. MATERIALS AND methods: We report on 3 women with a long-standing history of urinary frequency, urgency and voiding dysfunction who had been treated unsuccessfully for other etiologies. RESULTS: MRI of the urethra revealed noncommunicating intraurethral wall diverticula, which were excised. CONCLUSIONS: Urethral MRI should be considered in women with lower urinary tract symptoms secondary to a suspected urethral pathology. ( info)

2/432. Complete duplication of bladder and urethra in the coronal plane in a girl: case report and review of the literature.

    An unusual case of complete duplication of the bladder and urethra in the coronal plane associated with left ectopic kidney, duplication of the clitoris and a chondrolipomatous malformation in the pelvic region in a girl is reported. The accessory bladder was located posterolateral to the normal bladder and a ureteric opening into the accessory bladder was found. The malformation was initially identified by US and cystography and confirmed by cystoscopy. ( info)

3/432. High-pouch imperforate anus treated by electromagnetic bougienage and subsequent perineal repair.

    Four male infants with imperforate anus were treated by electromagnetic bougienage and subsequent perineal anoplasty with division of rectourethral fistula. Each had high-pouch imperforate anus of the supralevator type, with rectourethral fishtula at or above the level of the membranous urethra. Perineal anoplasty was accomplished in all four, with division of the rectourethral fistula, avoiding the need to do a sacral-abdominal-perineal procedure, as had been customary previously in similar cases.

4/432. Heterotopic bone formation in association with pelvic fracture and urethral disruption.

    PURPOSE: The initial and secondary management of pelvic fracture associated with disruption of the membranous urethra is the subject of a wide literature containing varied and controversial viewpoints. We have noted the presence of heterotopic bone formation surrounding the area of urethral injury in patients undergoing delayed repair. We investigated the etiology, incidence and risk factors associated with such an injury, as well as potential means of prophylaxis. MATERIALS AND methods: We reviewed the current literature on heterotopic bone formation with similar traumatic injury. While instances of severe urethral disruption of this type are fortunately rare in children we describe prepubertal boys with such an injury complicated by heterotopic ossification. RESULTS: The incidence of heterotopic ossification reported in children and adolescents is 3 to 15%, which is less than 15 to 80% reported in adults. risk factors associated with traumatic heterotopic ossification include prolonged operating time, hematoma formation, degree of bony debris, devitalized muscle and concomitant infection. Prophylaxis with single low dose radiation or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs has been shown to be effective in the prevention of heterotopic ossification and may be beneficial in this patient population. CONCLUSIONS: Heterotopic bone formation associated with severe traumatic injury in the presence of devitalized tissue resulting in the pathological formation of new bone is rare. This complication is only associated with the most severe pelvic fractures. Prophylaxis in these most severe cases with low dose radiation or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can prevent the formation of heterotopic bone. ( info)

5/432. Delayed transection of urethra by mersilene tape.

    This report is of a patient with complete urethral transection after undergoing a mersilene sling urethral suspension. This unusual complication eventually presented as anterior urethral pseudodiverticulum containing the mersilene tape with a secondary calculus. ( info)

6/432. Pyloric atresia associated with epidermolysis bullosa, malrotation, and high anorectal malformation with recto-urethral fistula: a report of successful management.

    Pyloric atresia (PA) is an uncommon anomaly that may be associated with many other congenital anomalies, the commonest of which is junctional epidermolysis bullosa (JEB). Most of the cases of PA associated with JEB (Herlitz syndrome) reported have been fatal. A case of PA associated with JEB, malrotation, and a high anorectal malformation with a rectourethral fistula, which was hitherto undescribed, was successfully managed at our institution. ( info)

7/432. Our surgical approach towards the treatment of urethrocele and urethral fistula.

    A new technique, described in the text, has been elaborated inspired by that of Monseur (1968) for urethral techniques. It has been performed with success in three paraplegics and in one incomplete tetraparesis. The plastic reconstruction of the diseased part of the urethra after excision of the stenosis and a fistula or diverticula by rotation and fixation to the subcavernal groove creates, in fact, an enlarged neo-urethra rendering the recurrence of the primary lesion practically impossible. This technique, first applied to spinal cord injuries, has been extended with permanent success to other lesions, such as tuberculosis stenosis and malformations. ( info)

8/432. Urethral diverticulum presenting with chronic pelvic pain: a case report.

    Urethral diverticula are rarely encountered in the gynecologic out-patient setting. However, this condition probably occurs more frequently than it is diagnosed. The patient frequently notes signs of lower urinary tract irritation. Urinary dribbling accompanied with dyspareunia and dysuria constitutes a classic triad for urethral diverticula. Symptoms of chronic pelvic pain only occur in a minority of patients. We report a case of urethral diverticulum presenting chiefly with chronic pelvic pain. The patient underwent multiple investigative operations before a correct diagnosis was made. When confronted with a patient presenting with chronic pelvic pain, a gynecologist should retain a high index of suspicion for a urethral diverticulum in addition to other gynecologic conditions.

9/432. Infected congenital urethral diverticulum in an adult male.

    Congenital anterior urethral diverticulum is a rare anomaly. The majority present in infancy with urinary obstruction. Those who present beyond infancy do so on account of recurrent urinary tract infection or dribbling. We present a case of congenital anterior urethral diverticulum manifesting in adulthood with suppuration in the diverticulum. ( info)

10/432. Benign periurethral masses in women.

    Benign periurethral masses were encountered in 4 women. The masses included 2 vaginal leiomyomas, 1 of which was found simultaneously with a urethral diverticulum, a fibrocystic urethral mass and hyperplastic glandular tissue obstructing the bladder outlet and resembling male prostate. The physical and endoscopic features were helpful in establishing the benign nature and extent of the lesions. Although the bladder base was deformed on an excretory urographic cystogram in each case the radiographic features were non-specific except as they applied to a urethral diverticulum. Transvaginal needle biopsy is recommended in contemplation of open surgical excision. Leiomyomas are best approached transvaginally and anterior urethral masses can be reached suprapubically. ( info)
