Abstract

Introduction: The treatment of urogenital sinus malformations is complex and controversial. Despite numerous and significant contemporary surgical advances, the dissection of the urogenital sinus remains technically challenging. Methods: Based on total urogenital mobilization, we describe a technique whereby this dissection is limited to the pubourethral ligament. Our short-term results with partial urogenital mobilization (PUM) performed on 15 patients are retrospectively reviewed. Results: There were no intraoperative complications and the short-term cosmetic results are excellent. No patients have developed voiding dysfunction or urinary tract complications. Conclusions: While total urogenital mobilization is a very effective procedure, we believe that the PUM approach limits potential morbidity in the reconstruction of these complex problems.
