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]

This report describes a 15-year-old male adolescent who developed sudden visual disturbance resulting from hypertensive retinopathy. The cause of hypertension was bilateral obstructive uropathy caused by enlarged paraureteral bladder diverticula. After the non-functioning right kidney and ureter and the bilateral diverticula were removed, the left ureter was reimplanted in the bladder. Pathologic findings showed chronic pyelonephritis and partial loss of the bladder musculature in the diverticular wall. This observation indicates that dilated CBD can cause latent UTI, ureteral obstruction, hydronephrosis, and secondary hyp...
Conclusion:One third of patients with a post-operative ureteral stent will seek medical care in the 30 days following ureteroscopy. Leaving a stent for 3 versus 7 days may lead to worse outcomes with regard to post-operative events and fank pain.Curr Urol 2017;11:97-102
Abstract We aimed to evaluate the influence of urological complications occurring within the first year after kidney transplantation on long‐term patient and graft outcomes, and sought to examine the impact of the management approach of ureteral strictures on long‐term graft function. We collected data on urological complications occurring within the first‐year post‐transplant. Graft survivals, patient survival, and rejection rates were compared between recipients with and without urological complications. Male gender of the recipient, delayed graft function, donor age were found to be significant risk factors for ...

Conclusion Liver DRI organ based dose modulation technique allows significant dose reduction compared to standard automatic exposure control while preserving diagnostic image quality in all thoraco-abdominopelvic areas.
Conclusion: There is a direct correlation between stone burden, as well as location, and radiation exposure during URS + LL. Clinicians should consider strategies to reduce total radiation exposure in recurrent stone formers at risk of high radiation exposure by limiting screening time, using pulsed rather than continuous fluoroscopy, management with primary URS + LL, or using ultrasound guidance.Urol Int 2018;100:184 –188
Conclusion Laparoscopic sacrohysteropexy may be an alternative and safe approach, if conservative treatment fails, for pelvic organ prolapse during pregnancy.

In conclusion, P311 may be involved in the pathogenesis of renal fibrosis by blocking TGF-β1-mediated EMT via TGF-β1-Smad-ILK pathway in UUO kidneys. P311 may be a novel target for the control of renal fibrosis and the progression of CKD. PMID: 29436600 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
