BACKGROUND: The importance of patient-reported outcomes (PRO) in hypospadias is increasing. However, more knowledge is needed concerning genital self-perception on appearance and function in adolescents. The complication rates for distal hypospadias is different from that for severe hypospadias, and expected outcomes related to sexual well-being and cosmetics may also differ. OBJECTIVE: To investigate 16-year-olds' self-reported outcomes on penile appearance, sexual well-being, and voiding function in distal hypospadias, and compare with that of healthy male adolescents and a surgeon's view...

OBJECTIVE: Data on sexual function of men with spina bifida (SB) is limited. We aimed to assess sexual activity and erectile dysfunction (ED) in a large international sample of men with SB. METHODS: Men with SB (≥18yo) were recruited in an international online survey via clinics and social media. We collected data on demographics, ambulation (Hoffer classification), penile rigidity (Erection Hardness Score), sexual activity and ED (International Index of Erectile Function)...

BACKGROUND: Trainee autonomy has eroded over time as surgery has become more subspecialized and as attending oversight has increased, causing many trainees to seek additional fellowship training beyond residency. Less clear is whether there are cases that attendings view as "fellowship-level" or "privileged" cases in which resident-level trainees should not have high levels of autonomy due to complexity or high-stakes outcomes. OBJECTIVE: We sought to better understand current attitudes and practices with regards to trainee autonomy in hypospadias repair as it represents a high complexity procedure within pediatric urology...

INTRODUCTION: Mercaptoacetyltriglycine (MAG-3) renogram is one of the gold standard diagnostic tools of ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO); however, there is no widely agreed indications of pyeloplasty based on MAG-3 findings. In this study, we introduce a renogram scoring system that can help improve the prognostic value of MAG-3 renogram and in the decision making of pyeloplasty. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed consecutive pyeloplasties for antenatal hydronephrosis from 2010 to 2020...

INTRODUCTION: There are various treatment options for symptomatic bladder diverticulum, including robotic-assisted laparoscopic bladder diverticulectomy, open and endoscopic techniques. But, to date, the optimal surgical technique remains unclear. OBJECTIVE: To present the preliminary long-term follow-up results of a novel technique of dextranomer/hyaluronic acid copolymer (Deflux) plus autologous blood injection for correction of hutch diverticulum in patients with concomitant vesicoureteral reflux (VUR)...

BACKGROUND: Accurate referral of boys with suspected undescended testes (UDT) is of importance to preserve fertility and reduce risk of future testicular cancer. While late referral is well studied, there is less knowledge about incorrect referrals, hence, referral of boys with normal testes. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the proportion of UDT referrals that did not lead to surgery or follow-up, and to assess risk factors for referral of boys with normal testes. STUDY DESIGN: All UDT referrals to a tertiary center of pediatric surgery during 2019-2020 were retrospectively assessed...

PURPOSE: To determine differences in long-term kidney and bladder outcomes in boys with posterior urethral valves (PUV) managed by a primary valve ablation or primary urinary diversion. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A systematic search was performed in March 2021. Comparative studies were evaluated according to Cochrane collaboration recommendations. Assessed measures included kidney outcomes (chronic kidney disease, end-stage renal disease, kidney function) and bladder outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Certain pediatric urologic diagnoses can have serious long-term adverse health outcomes. As a result, it is important for a child to be aware of their diagnosis and a prior surgery. When children have surgery prior to the age of memory formation, it is incumbent upon their caregiver to disclose this surgery. When and how to disclose this information and even if this occurs, is not clear. OBJECTIVE: We developed a survey to assess caregiver plans to disclose early childhood pediatric urologic surgery and evaluate for predictors of disclosure and resources needed...

PURPOSE: To present one way of performing onlay preputial flap for hypospadias. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This procedure was performed following the methodology used in one hypospadias expert center to correct hypospadias in boys who are not elective for Koff procedure and in whom Koyanagi procedure is not needed. Operative details were described, and post-operative management were given as example. RESULTS: Long-term results of this technique showed a 10% complication rate (dehiscence, strictures or urethral fistulas) 2 years after surgery...

PURPOSE: To assess the outcome of successful pyeloplasty in infants with Ureteropelvic Junction Obstruction (UPJO) and a differential renal function of (DRF) < 35% whether they can attain normal postoperative renal function or not. METHODS: All children who were diagnosed with antenatal hydronephrosis due to UPJO were presented to our institutions and were prospectively followed up. Pyeloplasty was performed based on predefined indications such as: initial DRF ≤40%, progression of hydronephrosis, and febrile urinary tract infection (UTI)...

BACKGROUND: Renal changes may have long-term sequalae and prevention is a main goal of management of primary vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). AIM: This study aims to reveal how much 99m Tc-DMSA scintigraphy findings are reflected in the adopted surgical or non-surgical treatment in children with diagnosed primary VUR and to give the clinicians information regarding their final therapeutic decision. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total 207 children with primary VUR who underwent non-acute 99m Tc-DMSA scan were retrospectively evaluated...

INTRODUCTION: There is controversy surrounding the association between caudal block and complication rates after hypospadias repair. Conflicting results have been reported mostly from single-center, low volume studies and those that did not include relevant variables. OBJECTIVES: We hypothesized that caudal block is not associated with increased rates of reoperation after primary repair and is associated with more complex hypospadias surgery. STUDY DESIGN: The Clinical Practice Solutions Center database was queried to identify patients who received a primary hypospadias repair between 2009 and 2010...

INTRODUCTION: Simultaneous performance of artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) placement and bladder augmentation (BA) in patients with neuropathic bladder is currently controversial. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to describe our very long-term results after a median follow-up of 17 years. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective single-center case-control study was performed in patients with neuropathic bladder treated in our institution between 1994 and 2020, in whom AUS placement and BA were performed simultaneously (SIM group) or sequentially at different times (SEQ group)...

INTRODUCTION: Neourethral covering is an essential technique for preventing complications such as fistula and glans dehiscence in hypospadias repairs. The spongioplasty has been reported for neourethral coverage about 20 years ago. However, reports of the outcome are limited. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to retrospectively evaluate the short-term outcome of spongioplasty with Buck's fascia covering dorsal inlay graft urethroplasty (DIGU). METHODS: From December 2019 to December 2020, 50 patients with primary hypospadias (median age at surgery, 37 months; range, 10 months-12 years) were treated by a single pediatric urologist...
