Biomechanical Assessment of Level Gait in Patient's Status Post Bladder Exstrophy (Gait)
The purpose of this study is to determine whether patients who have undergone exstrophy closure may be at risk for long-term orthopedic issues manifest by gait abnormalities. This study is a descriptive analysis of the study cohort's gait patterns and pelvic structure.
Specific Aim 1: to determine whether patients with classic bladder exstrophy who underwent closure demonstrate gait abnormalities.
Hypothesis 1: Patients undergoing closure of bladder exstrophy (with or without pelvic osteotomy) demonstrate gait abnormalities compared with a reference population.
Hypothesis 2: Patients undergoing closure of bladder exstrophy (with or without pelvic osteotomy) will have below normal functional survey scores.
