Penoplasty--Not Circumcision--for Buried Penis

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.
