Abstract

Purpose: The surgical treatment of urogenital sinus anomalies has undergone significant advances in recent years. Total urogenital mobilization, which mobilizes the urogenital sinus, vagina and urethra en bloc toward the perineum, represents one of these advances. Materials and Methods: We have improved our results with total urogenital mobilization by incorporating the mobilized urogenital sinus tissue into the repair rather than discarding it, as described originally. We have found this a readily available, easily manipulated and well vascularized flap that is a significant aid to reconstruction. Results: We present our 3 favored means of using the mobilized sinus tissue to create a mucosa lined vestibule, a posterior vaginal wall flap and an anterior vaginal wall flap. Conclusions: We believe that our techniques result in a further advancement in the cosmetic and surgical outcomes in these patients, and are beneficial in the reconstructive surgery armamentarium.
