Abstract 854: There is a high incidence of obesity in the myelodysplasia patients. Obesity in this population was associated with a higher incidence of complications with reconstructive surgery. Weight loss programs need to be instituted for these patients preoperatively as well as post-op.

Abstract 858: The transitioning of the spina bifida patients into the adult care centers seems to be a difficult transition for families. The vast majority of the medical needs of young adult spina bifida patients can be met in the adult care centers.

Abstract 862: Voiding Dysfunction symptom Score is a predictive test to find the response time to the treatment course. The higher their score, the longer the treatment period and later onset of response was to the treatment.

Abstract 863: Ureteral reimplantation seemed to help children improve their dysfunctional voiding for both boys and girls when it was present with VUR. However, it did not affect the rate of UTI. Therefore, did it really help the dysfunctional voiding?
