Pelvic osteotomies have been shown to enhance success rates for classic exstrophy patients when closed primarily or secondarily after initial failure. Primary closure of cloacal exstrophy also benefits from osteotomy but this has yet to be shown for re-closure of cloacal exstrophy failures. This study looks at the applications, complications, and long-term success rates in this very select group of patients.
