5-year-old Yusuf Tekli was playing with his friends around his house in Esenyurt on May 17, 19.10. As the car passed over the little boy’s stomach, his family and the people around him came forward to rescue the groaning boy. Father Sheriff Tekley, who works in the evening textile, and the ambulance was notified. An ambulance arrived at the scene and the boy was taken to Kam and Sakura City Hospital emergency services. It was determined that Tekli’s pelvis was broken, his urethra was severed and he had fractures and crushes in various parts of his body.
Noting that rupture of the urethra is not a very common condition, experts have decided to operate to prevent problems that will affect the child’s future life. Association of Pediatric Surgery Specialists Dr. Suleiman Chelebi and expert Dr. Ozgur Kuzdan and his team were able to successfully complete the difficult operation. The two ends of the isolated urethra were surgically reconnected. After a successful operation, the little boy, who had been hospitalized for some time, was released. Küçük noted that Joseph’s treatment would continue, Assoc. Dr. Suleiman Chelebi and expert Dr. Ozgur Kuzdan provided information about the operation, which he described as “one of the most difficult operations in the region in the international arena”.
“He will face serious difficulties in life. This is not something we often see.”
If the ureters are not combined, the young child may face a troublesome picture in the future, said pediatric surgeon Dr. Ozgur Kuzdan said, “The car crashed and the wheel went over it, breaking the pelvis. With this, the soft tissues of that area and the urethra rupture in isolation. His urine flowed to that area and came to us. Urinary tract rupture is not something we often see, it can cause serious damage to other organs as well. We first intervene this patient in our emergency department, then the film is taken and we diagnose our disease. We attached the broken part, we intervened there. Entering the area we call the crouch area, we found both ureters. It was an opportunity for both us and the children. We completed the operation by sewing them together. If this procedure cannot be performed, future surgery will probably not be very successful and he will not be able to urinate. He can go so far by piercing his stomach and taking out his own urine. Without this surgical intervention, if not successful, it could have been a serious problem for his life, even to the point of life-threatening, or he would have had to live an uncomfortable life in the form of disability. Motor vehicle traffic accidents are much higher among children in Turkey than in Europe. The mortality rate, especially among children aged 1-15 years, is much higher than in Europe. They have a lot of accidents, especially when going to and from school, ”he said.
“They go over the abdomen with his rear wheel.”
Sheriff Tekley, a 32-year-old father of three, said he heard his son’s accident at work and ran to his home in fear. “Yousef is playing with his friends on his plastic motorbike,” she said. There is a 4-way intersection, it throws itself on the road, but incoming service vehicles also do not see it. In fact, even if one of the neighbors says, ‘there’s a baby’, he goes on his stomach with his back wheel. It happened without realizing it, but in the end, the attention must be paid, the neighborhood, the streets, full of children everywhere. My family was at home at that moment, I went to work, I was on night shift. My brother came and pushed Yusuf with the car. By that time we rushed to the neighborhood in fear. An ambulance rushed him to Kam and Sakura City Hospital as his injuries were serious. Even the wheel of the car, which was pulled a little to the crash site, was visible, we were scared, so the truth of the matter is we were quite scared. It was a very difficult operation. They did it in a beautiful, healthy way. It has gotten a little better now, it will get better in the future. It would be better for the family to pay more attention to their children and ban them on the streets after a certain period of time. We complained, I gave my power of attorney to our lawyer, they will take necessary action. The child may not be able to guess where and how the car will come from, the speed limit should be as low as needed.
“One of the most difficult operations in the region internationally.”
Assoc Pediatric Surgery Specialist with information about the operation. Dr. “When she first arrived, the baby could not urinate,” said Suleiman Chelebi. This area is very difficult to repair, especially for children. When the baby’s general condition is not found, we usually prefer to wait 4 to 6 months. The same is true in the international arena, but when this child arrives, his bones are broken in that area. As soon as we entered the area we thought it could be repaired, we went to the surgery the same day. In fact, from the prostate to the penis, the bladder and urethra were completely separate, isolated, and there was blood in the middle. After cleaning these parts, we saw that they could be reassembled by leaving both ends and we reassembled them. This is one of the most difficult surgeries in the region in the international arena, “he said.
“If there is a problem repairing, it can lead to lifelong urinary incontinence.”
Assoc. Dr. “If it is not repaired in the early stages, since both the bladder tips and the penile tips have become different, they will heal in a more remote area and be filled with blood and bone.” There are problems with both sex life and urination life, and she will experience constant contractions, but this was initially repaired so that both her sex life and her early urination would not be affected. Urine leakage may occur. This is a very important contribution to the child’s future. It has been done very successfully. We hope that he will stop urinating almost completely and there will be no problem. ” We are starting to see trauma, especially in the summer season. Young children need to be very careful on the streets and in the playground. Especially when vehicles will pass through blind spots while playing, ”he said.
