Passerini-glazel feminizing genitoplasty: a long-term followup study

The Journal of Urology
Aldo BocciardiPatrizio Rigatti


We report our experience with early 1-stage Passerini-Glazel feminizing genitoplasty with special emphasis on long-term results of vaginoplasty. A total of 66 patients with ambiguous genitalia underwent 1-stage Passerini-Glazel feminizing genitoplasty. Long-term followup included an outpatient visit at 1 year postoperatively and a genital assessment with the patient under general anesthesia performed before menarche courses in those operated on at age 6 months to 8 years, and at 2 years postoperatively for those operated on at 9 years or older. All patients underwent the first long-term followup evaluation and no major complications were observed. The second long-term followup evaluation was performed in 46 patients (70%). In all cases the vaginal introitus was located in the physiological position and was large and elastic. Vaginal caliber at the suture line between the tubularized flap and vaginal mucosa was the same size as the vaginal introitus and distal native vagina in 20 of 46 patients (43%), slightly smaller in 10 (22%) and stenotic in 16 (35%). Stenosis at the suture line was corrected with simple Y-V introitoplasty performed at the same followup visit. Early 1-stage Passerini-Glazel feminizing genitoplasty is a safe ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
