Özet

Context: Patients born with complex congenital genitourinary anomalies (including bladder exstrophy, cloacal exstrophy, epispadias, neurogenic bladder, hypospadias and posterior urethral valves) often require major reconstructive surgery in childhood. These conditions, their treatment and sequelae require lifelong follow-up. This has created the need for adult urologists to provide care as these patients grow into adults.
