Abstract

A significant amount of publications devoted to disturbances of involution of the urachus has been accumulated lately. However, world literature data related to obliteration terms and frequency of the urachal anomalies vary considerably hampering risk assessment of complications. No consensus is reached over the issue of patient’s management as well. This article analyzes medical literature and most prominent Internet sources related to disturbances of involution of the urachus and treatment of related conditions.
