Exstrophy of the Bladder
Postnatal and nursery care:
- Tie umbilical cord with 2-0 silk to avoid traumatizing the bladder mucosa with an umbilical clamp.
- Cover bladder with a hydrated gel dressing or plastic wrap to prevent mucosa from sticking to clothing or diapers.
- Immediate transfer to an appropriate center for evaluation by a pediatric urologist and surgical correction.
