Spina bifida, bladder exstrophy/epispadia, posterior urethral valves, hypospadia and anorectal malformations are surgically managed in childhood but all these patients require life-long urological care for the treatment of continence. There are critical aspects to define:

  • Correct management in childhood to avoid procedure that impair adult life.
  • Transition out of childhood, actually confusing.
  • Lack of knowledge in paediatric and adult health care professionals, about adult life problems and congenital pathologies respectively.
    The objectives of workshop are to offer an overview with practical suggestions for best practice management of bladder and bowel incontinence in the above pathologies.
