Buccal mucosa graft for the treatment of long ureteral stenosis: Bibliographic review.

CONCLUSIONS: The findings of the present review do not justify the universal use of BMG in all ureteral strictures, particularly in the absence of long-term followup, but still provide evidence that BMG can be effectively used in extensive ureteral strictures. PMID: 28530624 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsThe USL suspension technique requires adequate surgical training and an understanding of pelvic anatomy. This tips and tricks video tutorial may be an important tool for improving surgical know-how, and thus for reducing the risk of ureteral injury. In particular, identification of the USLs and ureters, proper suture positioning and final cystoscopy are key points to minimize ureteral damage.

ConclusionsUreteric injuries after obstetric and gynecologic operations are not uncommon. Unlike in high-resource contexts, in low-resource settings obstetric procedures are most often associated with urogenital fistula. Despite resource limitations, diagnosis and treatment of ureteric injuries is possible, with good success rates. Training must emphasize optimal surgical techniques and different approaches to assisted vaginal delivery.

Conclusions: Transperitoneal or retroperitoneal approach can be considered equivalent as parameters like operative time, results are comparable for these two modalities. We preferred transperitoneal approach as it provides good working space for intracorporeal suturing.

We present a case of uterine perforation during D&E of a twin gestation at 20 weeks. The laceration is located in the cervical portion of the uterus and this was repaired laparoscopically. The steps necessary for a safe laparoscopic repair are highlighted including retroperitoneal dissection and clear identification of the ureter and the uterine artery.

Surgical treatment of the obstructed megaureter has classically consisted of open reconfiguration (excisional tapering or plication) of the enlarged ureter with subsequent reimplantation into the bladder in a nonrefluxing fashion. Hendren1 and others have championed this early complete definitive form of repair, citing the technical feasibility and high rate of success. When children are deemed to be significantly infected or too young or unstable to be an immediate candidate for early definitive repair, cutaneous ureterostomy has been the classic temporizing surgical option used.

We present two patients with recurrent UPJ obstruction who had previously undergone two prior open or robotic pyleoplasties, followed by endoscopic management. Preoperative imaging was obtained prior to surgical repair. The UPJ was incised and the incision extended to reveal margins of healthy normal caliber ureteral tissue.
