Prenatal and Postnatal Clinical Course of an Urachus Identified as an Allantoic Cyst in the Umbilical Cord

Conclusion The presence of an urachus identified as an allantoic cyst in the umbilical cord is frequently associated with spontaneous rupture during the prenatal period, resulting in a patent urachus after birth that requires surgical intervention.[...]Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New YorkArticle in Thieme eJournals:Table of contents  |  Abstract  |  Full text

Congenital urachal anomalies are usually asymptomatic. However, infection or obstruction of urachal remnant may result in serious complications. The giant umbilical cords with suspected internal communications could contain remnants and require surgical exploration. With timely recognition and surgical intervention, the outcome is generally good. AbstractCongenital urachal anomalies are usually asymptomatic. However, infection or obstruction of urachal remnant may result in serious complications. The giant umbilical cords with suspected internal communications could contain remnants and require surgical exploration. With t...

AbstractPurposeTo test the effect of tumor location (urachal vs. non-urachal) on cancer-specific mortality (CSM) in patients with adenocarcinoma of the urinary bladder (ADKUB).Materials and methodsWithin the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results registry (2004 –2016), we identified patients with non-metastatic (≤ T4N0M0) ADKUB. Stratification was made according to tumor location: urachal vs. non-urachal ADKUB. Kaplan–Meier plots and multivariable Cox regression models were fitted before and after 1:3 propensity score (PS) matching and separate Cox r egression models were refitted before and after inver...

Abstract The umbilicus is a unique physiologic scar of human life resulting from the healing process of the cut umbilical cord at birth. Its absence leads to an unnatural abdominal appearance, and an abnormally shaped or misplaced umbilicus may draw undue attention to the central abdomen. Loss of the umbilicus can be an embarrassing deformity; this occurs when older techniques of umbilical hernia or incisional hernia repair are employed and after abdominoplasty, urachal cyst repair, omphalocele repair, gastroschisis repair, some tumor excisions, and mobilization of bipedicled or bilateral TRAM/DIEP flaps for breas...

Publication date: Available online 28 November 2019Source: Journal of Pediatric Surgery Case ReportsAuthor(s): Imad Aljabban, Christa GrantAbstractPediatric soft tissue sarcomas comprise a small proportion of pediatric solid malignancies and may arise in numerous anatomic locations such as the head and neck, trunk, extremities, and the genitourinary tract. Here, we present a case of rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) arising from an unusual location, the urachus. The 3-year-old patient initially presented with signs of small bowel obstruction. On diagnostic laparoscopy, an infraumbilical mass was discovered and removed by laparotomy. ...

We present a case of a 45-year-old male patient presenting with painless hematuria of 1 week's duration and display the US and CT images. Imaging shows: (1) a solid, ill-defined, irregularly shaped mass invading the bladder wall located between the dome of the bladder and the abdominal wall, and which underwent significant enhancement; (2) hypo-echoic, heterogeneous echopattern with some calcifications and (3) patchy and short-line blood flow signals within the mass. Final histopathology confirmed urachal adenocarcinoma.

We present a rare case of an adult patient with an extraperitoneal complications of a diverticular perforation presenting with facial swelling due to a colo-urachal fistula associated with a patent urachal remnant. Perforation should be considered in patients presenting with surgical emphysema with background of diverticular disease. PMID: 31697162 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We present a 35-year-old female with urachal adenocarcinoma presented with an anterior abdominal wall swelling and ulcer managed surgically with wide excision of anterior abdominal wall along with intra-abdominal tumour mass with umbilectomy and contiguous urachal remnant excision with abdominal wall reconstruction with mesh repair who was doing well at one year follow up. We also present a brief review regarding pathologic criteria, evolution of various staging systems and surgical aspects of urachal adenocarcinoma.
