Endoureteral coil embolization of an ureteral arterial fistula.

Conclusion Ureteral arterial fistula is a potentially life-threatening condition. Endovascular stenting has provided a safe, reliable alternative to open surgery. However, when endovascular options are not satisfactory, coil embolization of the ureteral stump may serve as a safe and effective alternative treatment for these cases.

Conclusions: Cytoreductive nephrectomy should no longer be considered the standard of care in patients with T3b or T4, or node-positive, and metastatic rcc. Eligible patients should be treated with systemic therapy and have their primary tumour removed only after review at a multidisciplinary case conference (mcc). Adjuvant sunitinib after surgery is not recommended. Patients with venous tumour thrombus should be considered for surgical intervention. Patients with T3, T4, or node-positive utuc should have their tumour removed without delay. Decisions concerning lymph node dissection should be done at a mcc and be based on ...

Benign M üllerian papillomas have been described in patients as a rare tumor of the female genital tract. Symptoms typically arise as pre-pubertal vaginal bleeding with findings of a polypoid mass originating in the cervix or vagina. However, a vaginal squamous papilloma in a menarchal patient has not yet b een described in the literature. We will describe a case of recurrent squamous vaginal lesion in a 12 year old female.

Authors: Zăhoi DE, Sztika D, Stoican L, Dăescu E Abstract Renal blood vessels present great morphological variability. The routine dissection of a 68-year-old male cadaver revealed multiple bilateral vascular variations associated with the incomplete rotation of both kidneys. The left kidney was supplied by three renal arteries: one superior artery and one middle artery with hilum penetration, and one inferior artery with inferior polar penetration. All three arteries arose from the aorta: two from the anterior side at levels L1 and L3, and one - the inferior artery - from the posterior side of the aorta, as a co...

ConclusionWe found multiple heterogeneous predictors for SL with a common denominator related to surgical management of the retroperitoneal space, peritoneum and the ureter. Future prospective studies are necessary to evaluate the influence of these variables on the development of SL.

Authors: Tugcu V, Atar A, Sahin S, Seker G, Kargi T, Tasci AI Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Our objective is to report intermediate-term outcomes for patients who have undergone upper tract urologic laparoendoscopic single-site surgery (LESS) at a single institution. METHODS: From January 1, 2008, through November 30, 2012, 107 cases treated with LESS were identified, including pyeloplasty (n = 30), ureterolithotomy (n = 32), nephrectomy (n = 35; simple = 31, partial = 4), and cyst decortication (n = 10). Perioperative data were reviewed, and conversion and complication rates were noted. RESULTS: The ...

CONCLUSIONS: Postoperative complications within 30 days of surgery are common after LNU and LRN. Despite having technical similarities, LNU carries a significantly higher risk of developing short-term complications compared to LRN. This information should be considered when counseling patients prior to surgery. Notable limitations of this study included the lack of information on tumour stage and management of the distal ureter. PMID: 27217860 [PubMed]

Conclusion Minilaparoscopy is a feasible option for patients and physicians searching for a even less invasive procedure compared with the laparoscopic approach, with better cosmetic and the same functional and oncologic outcomes.
