Staged closure of the pelvis in cloacal exstrophy: First description of a new approach

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Purpose: We describe a staged approach for pelvic closure in patients with cloacal exstrophy, and evaluate the technique for functional and cosmetic results. Materials and Methods: Staged closure of the pelvis was performed in 5 patients 12 months to 14 years old with cloacal exstrophy at our institution, including some referred with a history of failed closure. The technique involves initial pelvic osteotomy followed by soft tissue and pelvic ring closure 2 to 3 weeks later. Clinical information is reviewed to assess the effectiveness of the technique. Results: At a mean followup of 3.2 years (range 1 to 9) closure was successful in all 5 patients without technical problems or surgical complications, and with excellent functional and cosmetic results. Conclusions: This technique of staged pelvic closure may provide reliable initial or secondary repair in patients with cloacal exstrophy in whom 1-stage pelvic closure is unfeasible even with pelvic osteotomy.
