Laparoscopic management of ureteroileal stenosis: Long term follow up.

CONCLUSION: Based on our series with 5 year follow up, the laparoscopic approach for uretero-ileal anastomosis strictures is feasible and safe. PMID: 28530630 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION Ureteric injury has significant morbidity and is the commonest reason for litigation following hysterectomy with an estimated risk of 0.02 - 0.4%. [1,2] Ureterolysis is infrequently practiced by benign gynaecologists however, is necessary during complex surgery. Benign pathology requiring hysterectomy such as endometriosis, fibroids, large uteri and adnexal masses are recognised risk factors for ureteric injury. [3] Most injuries occur during division of the uterine artery at the level of the internal cervical os. The average distance between the ureter and cervix is 2 cm but it is 0.5 cm in 3.2% of the populati...

Urinary retention following robotic-assisted laparoscopic extravesical ureteral reimplantation (RALUR) is proposed to be due to traction or injury of the pelvic parasympathetic nerve plexus during distal ureteral dissection. Nerve-sparing techniques have been employed to avoid injury to the pelvic plexus, either directly or indirectly. This single-center study assessed postoperative urinary retention rates after extravesical RALUR and investigated whether demographic or operative factors could predict this occurrence.

Conclusion Retroperitoneal cysts are rare lesions associated with numerous complications including compression on neighbouring organs, infection, rupture and malignant transformation. Excision of retroperitoneal cysts can be challenging and dissection of the retroperitoneal space is associated with bowel and vascular injury. [1] Laparoscopic drainage and fenestration have been promoted to prevent visceral injury. [2] Such approaches are ineffective, with increased recurrences and fluid accumulation requiring repeat surgical procedures. [3,4] Successful laparoscopic excision of retroperitoneal cysts has been reported though...

Authors: Douissard J, Ris F, Morel P, Buchs NC Abstract Iatrogenic ureteral injuries are a source of major concern among surgeons performing colorectal procedures. Although they are uncommon, these lesions lead to severe morbidity and long-term functional disabilities, as well as an increase in mortality, hospital stay, and cost. The laparoscopic approach has gained popularity in the field of colorectal surgery and is associated with improved global postoperative outcomes. However, it is also considered to increase the risk of ureteral injury when compared to open surgery, especially during left colonic and rectal ...

After pyeloplasty, urinary drainage options include internal double-J (DJ) ureteral stents or externalized pyeloureteral (EPU) stents, which can avoid bladder symptoms and additional anesthetic exposure from stent removal. Comparative outcome studies, however, are lacking following primary pediatric robotic-assisted laparoscopic pyeloplasty (RALP).

Authors: Huang Z, Zhang X, Zhang X, Li Q, Liu S, Yu L, Xu T Abstract PURPOSE: To determine if segmental ureterectomy (SU) could be chosen for wider oncological indications than low-risk ureteral carcinoma, given the difficulties in accurate preoperative risk stratification determination and kidney-sparing needs for successive therapy. METHODS: Data from ureteral carcinoma patients who underwent open SU or laparoscopic radical nephroureterectomy (RNU) between 2011 and 2016 were retrospectively reviewed. Kaplan-Meier survival analysis and Cox regression model with patients' baseline characteristics (age, bladder ...
