Bladder exstrophy: gynecological and obstetrical characteristics with reference to three cases.

Author information

  • 1Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Rouen University Hospital, Rouen, France.


The authors report three cases of pregnancy in women treated for bladder exstrophy. Based on a review of the literature, and the follow-up of these cases, the aim of this study was to determine the prognosis of pregnancy, which is currently possible due to the progress in antibiotherapy and surgery. Nevertheless, these pregnancies need to be carefully followed-up, not only because of the complications that may occur to the mother and the infant, but also because of the type of delivery involved.
