Patent Urachus Repair (Overview)

During fetal life, there is a connection between the umbilical cord and the dome of the bladder. It usually obliterates before or soon after birth. If it remains patent, one can have leakage of urine from the umbilicus or infections of the lower midline abdominal wall. Then the patent urachus should be removed and the dome of the bladder repaired via an infraumbilical or lower midline incision.

1)can patent urachus suddenly occur out of the blue at age of 20 in men?2)can poking ur belly button punture a hole that lets urine leak out?

1) Yes. 2) No.: A patent urachus is a still open congenital connection between the umbilicus (bellybutton) and the dome of the bladder. Poking your bellybutton will not cause it. A patent urachus is manifested by urine leaking out of the bellybutton or infection of the abdominal wall or bladder. Although we usually see it in younger children, it can become apparent in an older child or adult. Surgery is needed. ...Read more

Maybe: Many antibiotics can cause nausea in some patients. If you still have a urachus, and its causing problems, see a urologist to discuss the pros and cons of surgery to remove it. Hope this helps! ...Read more

How do you repair a patent ?Foramen ovale?

Surgery: Most patent foramen ovales (pfo) do not have to be repaired. However if repair is indicated due to failure or respiratory issues, it would require open median sternotomy and probably 5-6 days in the hospital. This of course depends on the age of the patient. ...Read more

I have been struggling for well over a yr  since open shoulder repairs, with now chronic pain and fatique, odd m.S.-like symptoms. Can surg do this?

Not Likely: The symptoms sound serious enough that you should get a thorough evaluation. The symptoms don't sound like a post surgical syndrome, but possibly you contracted a chronic slow growing infection while in hospital. Mycoplasma is one candidate, and resistant strains have been found increasingly in hospitals. Get checked out. ...Read more

What are the most current indications for endovascular repair vs. Open endartere?

Dependes on location: An aortic aneurism is best repaired with endovascular stents but a carotid blockage responds better to endarterectomy. Renal artery lesions can be approached endovascularly in most cases but it they are near the aorta or due to fibromuscular dysplasia an open surgical approach gives better results as long as the risk of surgery is tolerable. ...Read more
