Ureteral meatotomy as an option in the management of primary obstructive megaureter in neonates and infants.
CONCLUSIONS: Ureteral meatotomy is a safe and effective technique in the initial treatment of POM in patients aged less than one year. PMID: 28422037 [PubMed - in process]
BACKGROUNDPrevious studies indicated that two‐dimensional‐susceptibility weighted imaging (2D‐SWI) could serve as a useful biomarker for differentiating the grade of liver fibrosis. PURPOSETo evaluate the feasibility of 2D‐SWI in the dynamic quantification of renal fibrosis in a rabbit model.STUDY TYPE: Longitudinal study. ANIMAL MODELTwenty‐Four New Zealand White Rabbits including control group (n = 4); and renal fibrosis group (n = 20), by means of a unilateral ureteral obstruction (UUO) model. FIELD STRENGTH/SEQUENCEThe 3.0 T SWI using a 2D gradient‐echo sequence. ASSESSMEN...
ConclusionsThe nonspecific symptoms of ureteral endometriosis can result in incorrect diagnosis, with renal damage as a result of prolonged hydronephrosis. A high index of suspicion and use of imaging modalities enable earlier diagnosis and preservation of renal function.

Conclusions These guidelines contain information on the management of individual patients according to a current standardised approach. Urologists should take into account the specific clinical characteristics of each patient when determining the optimal treatment regimen, based on the proposed risk stratification of these tumours. Patient summary Urothelial carcinoma of the upper urinary tract is rare, but because 60% of these tumours are invasive at diagnosis; appropriate diagnosis and management is most important. We present recommendations based on current evidence for optimal management. These guidelines provide infor...
We report a case of a young patient admitted for penetrating abdominal trauma following a wound by a sharp object, admitted to the surgical emergency department at CHU Ibn Ruchd Casablanca, with hemodynamic instability and evisceration. Intraoperative abdominal exploration noted a complete ureteral section with a partial jejunal section without major vascular injury. Adequate haemostasis has been achieved; uretero - ureteral anastomosis with a double J stent was performed to treat the ureteral section, and jejunal wound was sutured with absorbable suture with feeding jejunostomy. The postoperative course was unenventful. P...
CONCLUSIONS: Here, prophylactic ureteral catheters were used in 4.9% of colectomies and most commonly for diverticulitis. On multivariate analysis, prophylactic catheter placement was associated with a lower rate of ureteral injury. Additional research is needed to delineate patient populations most likely to benefit from prophylactic ureteral stent placement. See Video Abstract at http://links.lww.com/DCR/A482.
Conclusions The management of lithiasis in the CAU setting follows a profile similar to that recognized in the European and American clinical guidelines, although there are interesting variations based on the practitioner's age and preferences. We identified potential areas for improvement in small-caliber PCNL and ultrasound-guided puncture.
In conclusion, we have identified a role for CypD in chronic tubular cell damage and in the development of renal interstitial fibrosis. PMID: 29230844 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsIn patients that need routine replacement of DJ ureteral stent, transurethral fluoroscopically guided method may be the first choice; only in few cases of technical failure, cystoscopy may be considered.
We present a case of NSS planning using a three‐dimensional computerized and printed model of both kidneys with anatomical structures of interest (parenchyma, renal pelvis, major calyx, renal artery, renal vein, and tumor). This model allowed a better understanding of the anatomic relation between the tumor and the normal kidney on each side, improving the surgical planning and the preoperative discussion with the patient's family.
