Epidemiology of urolithiasis in south of France: A retrospective monocentric study.

CONCLUSIONS: Epidemiology of stones has changed with an increased incidence in women, and nephrolithiasis patients getting older. A change in the type of stones is observed with increasing the proportion of mixed stones especially among women. Nutritional and metabolic studies are needed to find the etiology of the change in the epidemiology of urolithiasis. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: 4. PMID: 27233891 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractDay-care percutaneous nephrolithotomy (day-PCNL) is being performed more routinely, however, safety remains a concern. The purpose of this study was to compare the complication rate, readmission rate and medical cost saving between day-PCNL and inpatient-PCNL. A protocol for day-PCNL was applied. A retrospective review of 86 patients planned day-PCNL by one surgeon were conducted. Using propensity matching, 86 inpatients (minimum 2-day  post-operative stay) treated with the same procedure were matched. For each cohort, 14-day occurrence of complications and unplanned readmissions were recorded and compared. Mo...

llo Persico Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common cause of chronic liver disease worldwide and its incidence is definitely increasing. NAFLD is a metabolic disease with extensive multi-organ involvement, whose extra-hepatic manifestations include type 2 diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, obstructive sleep apnea, chronic kidney disease, osteoporosis, and polycystic ovarian syndrome. Recently, further evidence has given attention to pathological correlations not strictly related to metabolic disease, also incorporating in this broad spectrum of systemic involvement hypothyroidism, psoriasis,...

Authors: Segalen T, Lebdai S, Panayotopoulos P, Culty T, Brassart E, Riou J, Azzouzi AR, Bigot P Abstract OBJECTIVES: During ureteroscopy for urolithiasis, postoperative ureteral drainage with double J stent is frequently used. It may reduce acute postoperative pain and late ureteral stenosis. Double J stent can have negative impact on life quality. After uncomplicated intervention, double J stent is not mandatory. Objective of our study was to evaluate pain and complications after ureteroscopy with or without stent. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed ureteroscopy performed between May 2014 and January 2017. ...

ConclusionsEnterocystoplasty remains the gold standard for AC, though more research is needed to better evaluate the morbidity of different surgical techniques and the indications for concomitant surgeries. Experimental methods of AC with tissue engineering are a promising area for further investigation.

In this study, we hypothesized another possible method of bacteria contributing to the formation of calcium oxalate (CaOx) that accounts for the biggest part of the kidney stone. Bacteria may play important roles by influencing renal calcium-related ion channel activities, resulting in chronic inflammation of the kidney along with the rapid aggregation of stones. We examined the correlation among infection-promoted CaOx kidney stones and alterations in calcium-related ion channels in an animal model with experimentally induced Proteus mirabilis and foreign-body infection. After infecting the bladder for 7 days, the data de...

AbstractTo perform a systematic review and meta-analysis for the evaluation of 22 drug interventions in the management of ureteral stones, MEDLINE, Web of Science, EMBASE, and Cochrane central databases were searched to identify RCTs focusing on the evaluation of the efficacy of multiple drug interventions in medical expulsive therapy (MET) for ureteral stones, with no restrictions on year or language. Study quality assessment and data extraction were performed by independent reviewers. Major outcome measures were the stone expulsion rate, stone expulsion time, and pain episodes during treatment. A total of 78 RCTs with 14...

lkmer B Abstract The increase of medical knowledge and technical innovations together with the demographic change represent a challenge for the new conception of guidelines and clinical studies. The present S2k guidelines, which are exclusively concerned with kidney and ureteral stones, should support the treatment of urolithiasis in hospitals and private practices and provide information on urolithiasis for patients. Increasing interdisciplinary collaboration in stone treatment is also demonstrated in the number of professional and working groups participating in the update of the new guidelines. The present S2k ...

In this study, we aimed to investigate the feasibility of using Materialise ’s interactive medical image control system (MIMICS) to measure urinary calculi volume. We used a cylinder measuring to measure the same polymer clay volume in different groups. Polymer clay was made into an oval shape, an antler type, and a multiple irregular shapes by hand. They are divided into three groups, that is, A, B, and C, each of which has seven polymer clays. The computer tomography (CT) 3D images of each sample were obtained by 256iCT scanning. The CT 3D image was imported into MIMICS to measure the theoretical volume and average...
