Exstrophy results for world congress

  1. 1. Follow up results in exstrophy bladder managed by Primary repair,Augmented exstrophy repair and Uretero-sigmoidostomy Ravi P Kanojia, Sumit A, Prema Menon, Ram Samujh, KLN Rao Department of Pediatric Surgery Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India
  2. 2. General protocol:Primary bladder reconstruction if patient is early presenting (within 3months),bladder plate is >5cm diameter, pliable and non polypoidalAugmentation done if Bladder is of small capacity with incontinence due tostorage problemUretero-Sigmoidostomy done as primary for late presenting pt, poorsocioeconomic status and intractable incontinence
  3. 3. Objectives A non comparative bidirectional study in EB patients who were managed by one of the 3 mentioned reconstruction/diversion
  4. 4. Patients and methodsFive year retrospective study conducted from July 2004 to June 2009 and one year prospective study from July 2009 to June 2010Inclusion criteria  All patients who have had repair of Bladder Exstrophy irrespective of their sex and age.  Patient should have under gone one of the three mentioned procedures :  Complete or incomplete Primary repair  Secondary Salvage procedures after primary repair (Augmentation)  Uretero-Sigmoidostomy patients (primary or secondary)  The patient should have completed minimum 1 yr of follow up postoperatively.
  5. 5. Patients and methodsExclusion criteriaAll patients who underwent repair for Bladder Exstrophy outside PGIMER, Chandigarh.Patients with incontinent epispadiasPatients who have not completed 1 year of follow up post operatively.
  6. 6. Patients and methodsThe patients are subsequently divided into 3 groups namelyGroup I= Patients with primary repair of EB done either as staged or single staged procedure.Group II = Patients who have undergone bowel augmentation to achieve continenceGroup III = Patients undergoing Uretero-Sigmoidostomy either as a primary procedure or as a salvage procedure .Once the patients are stratified in the mentioned 3 groups they are evaluated on a separate proforma designed for each group. Several recording parameters can be same or different across the three groups depending on the feasibility.
  7. 7. Physical Quality of life (PQLI) scoresPQLI will be done by means of a structured questionnaire. KIDSCREEN -52 modified to Indian patients.The questions asked were in the following six dimensions representing various aspects of physical and psycho-social well being.Physical well being and participation in daily life activities School environment and performance in school and sportsparticipation in group activities Social support and relationship with peersGenitalia reconstruction satisfaction after surgery, and self perceptionPsychological well being
  8. 8. PQLI scoresPatients or parents were asked to indicate for each question how they perceived quality of life as compared to normal children with Likert scale model (never- seldom-sometimes-often-always, represented by 1-2-3- 4-5 point scoring system).Maximum score 150<100 poor101-120 average>121 good
  9. 9. Continence assessmentBy objective scoring. Score range 5-15. Higher the better CONTINENCE 3 2 1Ability to micturate Via natural orifice Occasional catheterization Always needs catheterizationDry period intervals >2.5hrs during 1.5-2.5hrs during day,3- <1.5hrs during day,<3hrs day,>4hrs during 4hrs during night during night night Ability to sense Always Occasional Never bladder filling Nocturia None Occasional(<4/month), Multiple times>4times/month needs fluid restrictionAbility to withhold Always Occasionally Never micturition Continence assessment for uretero-sigmoidostomy patients was done separately 5-7 poor (incontinent), 8-11 average, >11 good(continent)
  10. 10. STATUS OF UPPER TRACTSUpper tracts were assessed for dilatation pyelonephritic changes renal function deterioration and reflux These will be quantitively assessed bySerum Creatinine estimation.Renal UltrasoundMCUDMSA scan
  11. 11. METABOLIC COMPLICATIONS (for Group III only): Serial Arterial Blood Gas determination + Electrolytes determination.SALVAGE PROCEDURES REQUIRED : Several patients will require salvage procedures like supra- pubic or penile fistula closure, redo bladder neck repairs for persisting incontinence.
  12. 12. Results
  13. 13. Group I n=21 (7 females)
  14. 14. Group IMean age at completion of all stages in staged repair 3 yrs5 patients had u/l inguinal hernia 1 pt with b/l herniaSurgical complications  Ucf =5  Wound infection 3  Intestinal obstruction 1Secondary operative procedures  Fistula closure 5  Herniotomy in 6  Laparotomy for perf 1
  15. 15. Group IRenal function status Mean serum creatinine 0.57 (range 0.2-0.8 SD + 0.13) Persistent Hydronephrosis with impaired fun = 3 b/l HDN 1 VUR 11 (7 bilateral) Small capacity bladder 11
  16. 16. Group I, ContinenceMean continence score = 7.76/15 (range 7-9, SD+ 0.76)
  17. 17. Psychosocial assessment score mean=102.9/150 (range=83-133, SD+ 11.18)
  18. 18. Group I analysis None of these patients were satisfactorily continent (ie continent score >11.15) 42% (9/21) were incontinent even after complete repair 38% (8/21) had poor quality of life Small capacity bladder was a probable cause of incontinence in 50% of these patients. 57% (12/21) were with average continence 57% (12/21) had an average quality of life.
  19. 19. Group II N=1817 males 1 femaleMean age 11.52 yrs (range 3.5-17, SD+ 6.05)Mean age at augmentation 7.3 yrs (range 3-18 SD+ 4.34)Mean duration of follow up 4.13 years (range 1-13, SD+ 3.55)Initial operative treatment  One stage 8  Staged repair 10Reason for augmentation – small capacity bladder with no hold up of urine

  25. 25. Group IIIUretero-sigmoidostomy group14 patients (4 females)Mean age 8.4 years (range 14 – 3.5 yrs (SD+ 3.6)USG as primary procedure in 8 , 4 after staged bladder repair, 2 after bladder turn in.Mean age at USG 4.7 (range 1-11, SD+ 2.85)Mean duration of follow up 3.6 yrs (1– 10yrs, SD+ 3.21)Indications for USG  Bladder dehiscence + incontinence 2  Incontinence 3  Small fibrosed bladder 9

  27. 27. Group IIIContinence status 76.9% (10) patients passed urine at will 23% pt had occasional wetting 66% patients did not have any urinary leak while passing flatus 23% had urine leak only during straining 92% patients did not smell of urine
  28. 28. Group III Psychosocial assessment Mean score 130/150 (range 114-146, SD+ 7.5)
  29. 29. Group IIIAll the patients had good quality of lifeAlmost never smell of urine
  30. 30. Results analysis Group III group not included In the continence comparison
  31. 31. Results analysis
  32. 32. ConclusionsAchieving continence with primary repair is evolving our incontinence rate is 48%, and these patients have poor quality of life.Majority of these patients have small capacity bladder hence they are heading for either augmentation or diversionThe augmented patients do fairly better than primary repair group the continence rate achieved is 88%.Uretero-Sigmoidostomy patients since do not leak urine by virtue of diversion are dry and have almost normal social life and the PQLI of these patients is good.Contrary to general opinion metabolic problems were not seen in any of these groups.
