What our research means for kids
Many of our research studies have a positive, long-lasting impact on children with urologic conditions:
Pediatric urologic surgeon Vijaya Vemulakonda, MD, worked with researchers at Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego and Texas Children's Hospital to study treatments for infants diagnosed with hydronephrosis before birth. The research looked at how those variations in treatment impacted kidney function in children with kidney obstruction. The research helped develop guidelines for surgical testing and treatment to improve the long-term outcomes of these patients.
Pediatric urologic oncologist Nicholas Cost, MD, is investigating the impact that urologic cancers (kidney, adrenal, bladder, testicular) have on kids and how treatments can maximize cure, but minimize side effects. He works with the Children's Oncology Group to offer the latest treatments and collaborate on research. In addition, our Pediatric Urologic Oncology Program has its own ongoing local investigation in the lab and the clinic that is studying the impact of chemotherapy on bladder function in children.
In collaboration with the Department of Pediatric Radiology and the Society for Fetal Urology, pediatric urological surgeon Jeffrey Campbell, MD, worked to refine prenatal imaging tests to identify urinary and genital organ irregularities at and before birth.
In collaboration with Anna Malykhina, MD, and Nao Iguchi, MD, at the University of Colorado, Duncan Wilcox, MD, studied the effect of partial bladder outlet obstruction to assess signs of the obstruction. By studying hypoxia pathways, they have opened the door to new types of treatment. In addition, they studied the interaction between bladder and bowel nerve function and its possible effect on children with dysfunctional elimination syndrome.
