Summary of "Clinical experience of the VQZ plasty for catheterizable urinary stomas."


OBJECTIVE:
To evaluate the effectiveness of VQZ plasty, we analyzed our experience with continent catheterizable urinary stomas using VQZ plasty and V-flap techniques. PATIENTS AND
METHODS:
We retrospectively reviewed the records of 25 patients who underwent Mitrofanoff procedures in 2000-2009. All stomas were created in the lower quadrant. There were 10 patients who underwent VQZ plasty and 15 in whom the V-flap technique was used. The stomal complications of these two groups were compared.
RESULTS:
Two patients (20%) with VQZ plasty and five (33.3%) with V-flap required surgical revision. Hypertrophic mucosae that excreted mucus and blood periodically were resected in two patients (13.3%) with V-flap. One patient (10%) with VQZ plasty had a surgical site infection. Although the stomal complication rate was lower in patients with VQZ plasty compared to those with V-flap, this difference was not statistically significant (P = 0.4).
CONCLUSIONS:
Our results show a tendency towards decreased stomal complications rates in patients with VQZ plasty, suggesting its superiority over the V-flap technique because of good cosmesis. To successfully construct VQZ stomas, surgeons should work to preserve the blood supply of skin flaps and reduce the subcutaneous dead space, and thus reduce the risk of surgical site infection.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Undergraduate medical education programs for second- , third- , and fourth-year students in which the students receive clinical training and experience in teaching hospitals or affiliated health centers.

An artifical implanted device, usually in the form of an inflatable silicone cuff, inserted in or around the bladder neck in the surgical treatment of urinary incontinence caused by sphincter weakness. Often it is placed around the bulbous urethra in adult males. The artificial urinary sphincter is considered an alternative to urinary diversion.

Clinical disturbances of the urinary system.

Artificial openings created by a surgeon for therapeutic reasons. Most often this refers to openings from the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT through the ABDOMINAL WALL to the outside of the body. It can also refer to the two ends of a surgical anastomosis.

A surgical specialty concerned with the study, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the urinary tract in both sexes, and the genital tract in the male. Common urological problems include urinary obstruction, URINARY INCONTINENCE, infections, and UROGENITAL NEOPLASMS.
