Abstract

The management of exstrophy-epispadias complex presents one of the most challenging anomalies in urology. Despite advances in surgical technique for exstrophy-epispadias repair, the incidence of complications remains significant. Knowledge of the management of potential morbidities is essential for all physicians involved in the management of these complex patients. This chapter focuses on the management of short-term, intermediate, and long-term complications that can arise following primary closure.
