Potential Benefits of Laparoscopic Repair of Duodenal Atresia: Insights from a Retrospective Comparative Study

Conclusion Patients undergoing laparoscopic CDO repair at our institution benefited from shorter time to full enteral feeds, and reduced the need for PN as well as postoperative pain medication.

Biliary atresia (BA) is a rare obstructive cholangiopathy that presents in early infancy. The Kasai portoenterostomy (PE) improves survival with the native liver. Epidural analgesia is an appealing option to control pain in this fragile patient population, yet its safety, efficacy, and potential benefits remain unproven.

Conclusion: In our series of 63 patients born with EA, mainly distal tracheoesophageal fistula, the prevalence of EoE is increased, and therefore should be considered in adolescents with EA.

Conclusion: On the basis of our review, minimal endoscopic procedures in small newborns and toddlers require a high level of experience. They are technically challenging and need suitable equipment. Overall, endoscopists and pediatric surgeons should equally be prepared for all possible complications in every treatment step. The endoscopic approach to managing this unusual disease may require multiple interventions and is associated with a risk of perforation. Therefore, we are convinced that centers undertaking this treatment modality should be equipped with the proper instrumentation, prepared to perform multiple endos...

Authors: Abstract At puberty, a patient with an imperforate hymen typically presents with a vaginal bulge of thin hymenal tissue with a dark or bluish hue caused by the hematocolpos behind it. Other findings that may be present include an abdominal mass, urinary retention, dysuria, constipation, and dyschezia. On evaluation, the goal is to differentiate an imperforate hymen from other obstructing anatomic etiologies, such as labial adhesions, urogenital sinus, transverse vaginal septum, or distal vaginal atresia. Surgical intervention is necessary only in symptomatic prepubertal patients. After confirmation of th...

Authors: Abstract Obstructive uterovaginal anomalies may present after puberty with amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, pelvic pain, recurrent vaginal discharge, or infertility. The evaluation of a patient with a suspected obstructive reproductive anomaly should include a detailed medical history, physical examination, and imaging. The genital examination is critical to differentiate a patient with an imperforate hymen from a patient with labial adhesions, urogenital sinus, transverse vaginal septum, or distal vaginal atresia. Pelvic ultrasonography is the initial imaging method recommended for a patient with cyclic pain a...

ConclusionsUPAA presents classically with hemoptysis, but also with pneumonia, pulmonary hypertension, or incidentally. Management includes selective collateral embolization, pneumonectomy, or medical management directed towards decreasing pulmonary hypertension in patients unable to tolerate pneumonectomy due to comorbidities. Pneumonectomy in these patients is characterized by dense and hypervascular adhesions, with large volume blood loss expected during adhesiolysis, which can be decreased with pre-operative embolization. Outcomes are typically excellent in otherwise healthy patients.

We present a rare condition with the co-occurrence of the VACTERL association and Müllerian duct hypoplasia to characterize patients’ clinical presentations, outcomes, and treatment. Patient concerns: An 11-year-old girl presented to our hospital with severe lower abdominal pain, lower vaginal atresia with enlargement of the upper vagina and a bicornuate uterus with a Y-shaped uterine cavity filled with hematometra on pelvic magnetic resonance imaging. Her medical history included congenital anal atresia with a rectovestibular fistula, congenital right renal deficiency, congenital right thumb malformation, an...

Abstract Congenital atresia of the left main coronary artery (LMCA) is an exceedingly rare phenomenon, and in the most of them, coronary artery bypass graft is required. We here describe a rare case of this anomaly that concomitantly was associated with supravalvar aortic stenosis and coronary-pulmonary fistula without the presence of conventional collateral circulation in a 16-year-old boy. The patient was admitted to our center with chest pain and dyspnea. Echocardiographic examinations showed supravalvar aortic stenosis with normal function of the aortic valve. Coronary angiography revealed atresia of LMCA with...
