Abstract

A total of 6 consecutive infants with exstrophy of the bladder underwent iliac osteotomy in association with primary closure of the bladder without internal or external fixation of the bony pelvis. Hospitalization time was short and there were no resulting problems with healing, bony deformities or subsequent ambulation. Fixation of the bony pelvis after iliac osteotomy does not appear to be necessary in nonambulatory patients undergoing primary closure for bladder exstrophy.
