The exstrophy-epispadias complex is a serious rare malformation syndrome with bladder exstrophy, epispadias and/or cloacal exstrophy with often lifelong consequences. Epidemiology.

Gearhart, in Pediatric Urology, Embryology. Bladder exstrophy (60% of patients within the complex), epispadias (30%), and cloacal exstrophy or minor variants (10%) result from the failure of the cloacal membrane to be reinforced by the ingrowth of mesoderm. Normally, ingrowth of mesenchymal tissue between the ectodermal and endodermal layers of the cloacal. J. Todd Purves, John P. Gearhart, in Pediatric Urology, Results of Epispadias Repair. In epispadias patients, as in those with classic bladder exstrophy, bladder capacity is the single most important indicator of eventual continence. Arap and coworkers found that continence was achieved in 71% of patients with an adequate bladder volume, but in only 20% if the bladder volume was.

  The exstrophy-epispadias complex is a rare spectrum of malformations affecting the genitourinary system, anterior abdominal wall, and pelvis. Historically, surgical outcomes were poor in patients with classic bladder exstrophy and cloacal exstrophy, the two more severe by: Bladder exstrophy-epispadias complex (BEEC) is a spectrum of rare congenital malformations involving the urinary, genital, and musculoskeletal systems in which the bladder remains open through a.

Bladder exstrophy is a congenital anomaly that exists along the spectrum of the exstrophy-epispadias complex, and most notably involves protrusion of the urinary bladder through a defect in the abdominal wall. Its presentation is variable, often including abnormalities of the bony pelvis, pelvic floor, and underlying embryologic mechanism leading to bladder exstrophy is unknown Specialty: Medical genetics. The authors report a rare variant of exstrophy-epispadias complex, a duplicate bladder with normal bladder communicating with an exstrophic bladder by a fistula, in a girl with no genital.   title = "Complications: Epispadias and bladder exstrophy", abstract = "The management of exstrophy-epispadias complex presents one of the most challenging anomalies in urology.

The exstrophy-epispadias complex represents a spectrum of malformations ranging from epispadias to cloacal exstrophy.
