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]
Conclusions Uterosacral ligament suspension is a safe and effective procedure in primary surgical treatment of pelvic organ prolapse. Anatomical, functional, and subjective outcomes were very satisfactory, and reoperation rate for recurrence was only 1%.
AbstractMaintenance of flexible ureteroscopes can involve high costs and administrative burden. Instrument fragility necessitates eventual repair, rendering scopes inaccessible during refurbishment. We conducted a multi-institutional prospective cohort study to identify perioperative factors influencing flexible ureteroscope durability. Patients undergoing flexible ureteroscopy (URS) at six United States endourology centers were enrolled between August 2014 and June 2015. Surgeon self-reported concern and satisfaction with scope performance as well as upward and downward angles of deflection for each scope tip were measure...
Conclusion: These data suggest that gender may influence the worsening of pulmonary mechanics and renal function in UUO animals and the LLLT can improve the lung elastances, renal function and fibrosis.
CONCLUSION: The incidence of lower urinary tract injury in gynecologic laparoscopy for benign indication remains low at 0.33%. Bladder injury was three times more common than ureteral injury, although ureteral injuries were more often unrecognized intraoperatively and underwent open surgical repair. These risk estimates can assist gynecologic surgeons in effectively counseling their patients preoperatively concerning the risks of lower urinary tract injury.

Abstract Telocytes (TC) are the delicate interstitial (stromal) cells defined by their long, thin and moniliform processes termed telopodes. Numerous studies determined that different subsets of telocytes populate almost all tissues and attempted to relate these subsets to various functions, from cell signaling to tissue repair and regeneration. Extremely few studies addressed the urinary tract though few data on the molecular pattern of the urinary TCs actually exist. We therefore hypothesized that subsets of urinary TCs co-localize within the human ureter and we aimed at performing an immunohistochemical study t...

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.
