AbstractStandard of care for large or complex renal stones is percutaneous nephrolithotomy. Robotic pyelolithotomy, however, may be a feasible alternative, but limited data exist on its outcomes and complications. Our study objective was to describe the outcomes and peri-operative complications of robotic pyelolithotomy for complex renal calculi. We performed a retrospective analysis of robotic pyelolithotomy at our tertiary academic institution from 2015 to 2018. Demographics, stone clearance rates, complications, estimated blood loss, operative time, and length of stay were reported. 15 patients were included with a medi...

When the National Institutes of Health convened the first workshop devoted to the diagnosis and management of primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) in 1990, astute clinicians had already appreciated that the classic presentation of this disorder, established decades before as symptomatic and progressive, was no longer the typical face of the disease.

Abdülkadir Kandemir, Mehmet Giray SönmezUrology Annals 2019 11(3):310-313 Ureteral catheters are frequently used in urology clinics for intrinsic or extrinsic pathologies which cause ureteral obstruction to provide urinary drainage from the kidney to the bladder. With the increase in stent use, an increase is observed in complications occurring due to ureteral stents in direct proportion with this increase, and ureteral double-J (DJ) stents forgotten in the urinary system are observed commonly in urological cases when the patients do not refer to a health institution in this condition and may cause severe proble...
