Location:Room 13b (ICM, Level 1)
Many children with congenital anomalies will present to the adult urologist with long-term sequellae. It is important to know what has been done in terms of surgical procedures so that the adult urologist knows what he can do in the future. It is also important to know how the urological follow-up of these patients should be done. The most common pediatric conditions will be reviewed, while long-term complications will be explored by short interactive case presentations.
• Many children born with hydronephrosis may not require surgical intervention, but need close follow-up until after puberty
• Penile and urethral reconstruction, such as hypospadias may have serious implications for transurethral procedures in the future
• The clinical presentation of congenital anomalies of the urinary tract is changing but some of these may still present in the adult patient
• Obstructive uropathy and VUR are not always surgical anomalies, but may be functional in nature: the treatment modalities and long-term outcomes depend on the pathophysiology
