Urinary Incontinence and Urosepsis due to Forgotten Ureteral Stent
Publication date: September 2016 Source:Urology Case Reports, Volume 8 Author(s): Diego Martin Barreiro, Johanna Belén Losada, Francisco Castro Montiel, Norberto Lafos Case report of a patient who, while being under study due to total urinary incontinence and multiple urinary tract infections, interoccurs with urosepsis due to a forgotten and encrusted double-J stent. An open surgery is performed with two surgical approaches, suprapubic and minimal lumbotomy, in which a nephrectomy of the atrophic kidney, a resection of the urether with a calcified double-J in its interior and a cystolithotomy were conducted with the resulting favorable resolution of the pathology.
Carolyn Andrew, 68, from Bushey, Hertfordshire, joined a group of activists called CUTIC, the Chronic Urinary Tract Infection Campaign, after developing a urinary tract infection in 2016.
ConclusionsOlder homeless adults fall frequently. Likely contributors include having a high prevalence of conditions that increase the risk of falls, compounded by heightened exposure to unsafe environments. Fall prevention in this population should target those at highest risk and address modifiable environmental conditions. Providing shelter or housing and addressing substance use could reduce morbidity from falls in homeless older adults.
Ureteritis cystica is rare, benign entity that associates with chronic urothelial irritation such as recurrent urinary tract infection or nephrolithiasis. It is often diagnosed incidentally on routine imaging or ureteroscopy in asymptomatic individuals. In this case report, we present the retrograde pyelogram and ureteroscopy images of a rare case of extensive unilateral ureteritis cystica in a 78-year-old female presenting for elective stone surgery.
This study aimed at evaluating whether removal of the ureteral stent the day before scheduled secondary intervention facilitates spontaneous ureteral stone passage and thus can spare the pre-stented patient this surgery.MethodsRetrospective analysis of a single-centre consecutive series of 216 patients after previous stenting due to a symptomatic ureteral stone from 01/2013 to 01/2018. Indwelling stents were removed under local anaesthesia. Patients were told to filter their urine overnight. Multivariate analysis was performed to assess predictive factors for spontaneous stone passage.Results34% (74/216) of patients had sp...
This study investigated the feasibility of TVSE with RPS according to short-term outcomes and cosmesis.MethodsThis prospective multicenter study enrolled ten patients at three institutions. For the semi-quantification of each parameter, we administered questionnaires to assess pain (visual analogue scale), subjective/objective wound healing esthetics [photo series questionnaires (PSQ)], and quality of life (QOL).ResultsNo operative complications occurred, except one case of urinary tract infection, which was promptly cured with antibiotics. On day 0, pain was rated at 2.3 ± 0.67 at rest and 4.9&thinsp...
This article provides a review of the spectrum of imaging findings in patients after pelvic floor repair with synthetic mid-urethral slings and vaginal mesh.

To determine which nursing home (NH) resident characteristics were most important to clinicians' decision to prescribe antibiotics for a suspected urinary tract infection (UTI), including both evidence-based and non-evidence-based characteristics.
We examined the long-term re-procedure rate after MUS operations. The main outcome was re-procedures for SUI. The secondary outcome was surgical interventions due to complications.MethodsWe analysed a retrospective population cohort of 3531 women with MUS operations in 2000 –2006 and followed them up until 31 December 2016. Data were collected from a national hospital register and from hospital patient records.ResultsThe median follow-up time was 13 years (IQR 11.6–14.8) for the 3280 women with a retropubic MUS (RP-MUS) and 11 years (IQR 10.3–11.9) for the 245 women with a transobturator MUS (T...
ConclusionsThe therapeutic effects of SVCP on treating UTIs might result from the up-regulation of innate immunity in the kidney. SVCP can be used as an alternative therapeutic agent for UTIs.Graphical abstract
