Congenital Bladder and Urethral Agenesis: Two Case Reports and Management.
Conclusion: We reported two cases of bladder agenesis, and for the first time, we have performed neobladder creation surgery using the cecum and ascending colon. One-year follow-up did not reveal any complications. PMID: 33029134 [PubMed]
Kathy Siggins and Lynda Everman are thrilled to share the welcome news that the US Postal Service has reinstated sales of the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Semipostal Stamp effective October 5, 2020. It is now available for purchase at most post offices and online at https://store.usps.com/store/product/buy-stamps/alzheimers-S_564204, and by phone at 1-800 STAMP-24. Before it was withdrawn in November 2019, over 8.2 million stamps were sold during its two-year run raising $1,061,777 for NIH-supported research to advance better treatments, prevention, and one day, a cure of Alzheimer’s and related dementias.

Conclusion Ileal neoappendicostomy may be an alternative to ACE in children with severe and medically intractable constipation and or/and fecal incontinence where the appendix is missing or not available.

Dawn Deacy, Feargal QuinnUrology Annals 2020 12(3):289-290 The antegrade continence enema (ACE), known as the ACE procedure, has gained popularity over the past two decades in the treatment of refractory fecal incontinence. This case report describes an acutely inflamed appendix being used for an ACE procedure. To my knowledge, this has not previously been documented in the literature.
CONCLUSION: Based on the results of our study, Mitrofanoff's technique is a valuable procedure for managing patients with serious complicated urethral strictures who cannot be treated with common standard approaches. PMID: 32350848 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: The long-term analysis shows similar stenosis and incontinence rates compared to the two best-established techniques - submucosally embedded appendix and intussuscepted ileum. Despite limitations due to the small number of cases, the Fulda nipple is at least a safe alternative as a "second-line technique" in cases where the initial method has failed.

CONCLUSIONS: Appendicovesicostomy is a high risk of complications and postoperative revisions surgery, in order to have a functional continent channel. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: 4. PMID: 30082244 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Robotic surgery for reconstructive pediatric urology is an emerging technique, and robotic-assisted Mitrofanoff appendicovesicostomy is associated with relatively high stomal continence rates. However, some children experience incontinence, which may be related to inadequate support and resistance at the anastomosis of the appendix to the bladder. While endoscopic injection is often recommended first, some patients require surgical revision. We demonstrate our approach to surgical revision of a Mitrofanoff appendicovesicostomy in a pediatric patient.
Publication date: 27 April 2015 Source:The Lancet, Volume 385, Supplement 2 Author(s): Ben Namdarian , Stuart Willder , Geoff Steele , Richard Leona , Richard Grills Background The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) via the Pacific Island Program (PIP) administer yearly urology visits to Vanuatu to perform surgery and deliver training in the management of urological conditions. In conjunction with the Vanuatu Ministry of Health a self-sufficient urology service has developed, specifically performing transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) procedures. We review the TURP outcomes for the PIP and detail th...
