CONCLUSION: Unilateral renal unit urine sampling is safe and feasible. However, captured urine volumes are small and variable, but chemical analysis can still be performed. Unilateral defects in renal electrolyte handling are relatively common, but the clinical implications of these differences are still yet to be determined.

CONCLUSION: Despite an increase in stent dislodgement related risks  to the extraction string, it results in significant cost savings for patients, and most of patients remove with extraction strings might benefit from it.  INTRODUCTION Nowadays, most of urologists place an indwelling ureteral stent following uncomplicated ureteroscopy(URS). However, ureteral stent may impact quality of life (QoL) of patients. And the additional suffering due to cystoscopic extraction is even more painful. Current ureteral stents are manufactured with a string attached to the distal end, allowing for remo...

Intraoperative cystoscopy plays an important role in allowing the bladder to be assessed to ensure there are no injuries. The verification of the urinary jet from the ureters is a fundamental step but is not always easy to accomplish. Dyes are frequently used but...

The aim of this study was to compare the accuracy of cystoscopy and ultrasonography for the prenatal diagnosis of abnormally invasive placenta (AIP), including its subgroups: placenta accreta (PA), placenta increta (PI), and placenta percreta (PP). A retrospective observational study including a total of 85 pregnant women at high risk for AIP underwent prenatal cystoscopy and ultrasonography evaluations. The sensitivity (Se), specificity (Sp), positive predictive value, negative predictive value, and exact diagnosed were calculated and compared for both cystoscopy and ultrasonography. Se and Sp values of cystoscopy and ul...

AbstractAllograft lithiasis is a rare urologic complication of renal transplantation (RT). Our aim is to present our experience with minimally invasive surgical treatment of allograft lithiasis in our series of live-donor renal transplant recipients. In a retrospective analysis of 3758 consecutive live-donor RTs performed in our center between November 2009 and January 2017, the results of minimally invasive surgery for the treatment of renal graft lithiasis diagnosed at follow-up were evaluated. Twenty-two (0.58%) patients underwent minimally invasive surgery for renal graft lithiasis. The mean age was 41.6 years, and dur...

Fifty percent Dextrose solution (D50) can be used to evaluate ureteral patency at time of laparoscopic hysterectomy. A previously published study found an increased risk of urinary tract infection (UTI) after cystoscopy with 10% dextrose solution following pelvic reconstruction or anti-incontinence surgery. The purpose of this study was to compare the rate of UTI and lower urinary tract (LUT) injury detection in different population –younger women who have undergone intraoperative cystoscopy with 50% dextrose solution or normal saline (NS) immediately following benign laparoscopic hysterectomy.
