Sigmoid Volvulus in the Paediatric Population

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.451

ABSTRACT

Sigmoid volvulus is a relatively rare condition commonly associated with the elderly. Because of this strong link with elderly adults,  children- including neonates, who are by no means immune to the condition, are more prone to be misdiagnosed and suffer the consequences of a delay in diagnosis.

Penoplasty--Not Circumcision--for Buried Penis

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.127
Pages: 
541–4

INTRODUCTION

Buried or concealed penis is an uncommon condition in which the penile shaft is partially or completely obscured by preputial skin. In the majority of cases, it is congenital. Many patients are ill-advisedly referred for circumcision, a procedure which can compromise future repair and cosmetic outcome. We report on the management and outcome of two boys with congenital buried penis, one of whom was initially referred to the authors for circumcision.

A Plea for More Umbilical Stomas in Paediatric Surgical Practice

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.255

INTRODUCTION

Enterostomy formation is commonly performed in paediatric surgical practice. Many surgical procedures in infants and children benefit from a periumbilically sited incision and stoma formation should be no exception. Because of the superior cosmesis following closure of an umbilically-sited colostomy or ileostomy, ease of stoma care and economic benefits, periumbilically sited stomas are an attractive alternative for use in both neonates and children.

Gastroesophageal Reflux and Reflux Oesophageal Strictures in Children with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.096
Pages: 
161–4

ABSTRACT

Due to the early diagnosis and effective treatment options for gastroesophageal reflux (GER), reflux strictures in children are no longer commonly encountered. We report on two cases of reflux oesophageal strictures occurring in children, both having the rare genetic disorder, Cornelia de Lange syndrome, and discuss their management.
