ConclusionsIn patients with posterior urethral valves, nadir creatinine, especially higher than 1 mg/dL, should be considered as high risk for end‐stage renal disease. Therefore, clinicians should improve awareness about early detection and treatment of posterior urethral valves, and these patients should be monitored as early as possible for the risk of chronic kidney disease.
Conclusions: US-guided MPCNL showed an excellent SFR and low complication rate in the management of pediatric patients with upper ureteral and renal stones. PMID: 32401098 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: We corroborated that age at diagnosis is not a prognostic factor for decreased or increased OS or DFS, and in both groups, the stage, histologic subtype, hydronephrosis, and node involvement were identified as factors adverse to OS and DFS, and pregnancy history was a protective factor in DFS. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: The present study directly affects everyday clinical practice because it allows us to focus on the most relevant prognostic factors in patients with cervical cancer. When planning treatment and follow-up, clinicians should focus on stage at diagnosis, histologic subtype, hydronephrosis, and...
AbstractPurposeTo estimate the benefit of pelvic magnetic resonance (MR) imaging after routine pelvic ultrasound (US) in patients with pathologically or surgically proven endometriosis.MethodsPatients with surgically or pathologically proven endometriosis who had routine pelvic US followed by pelvic MR within 6 months prior to surgery were included. Patients were excluded if they had previously confirmed endometriosis, pregnancy, or surgery > 6 months after MR. The detection rate of endometriosis by pelvic US and MR was compared to the surgical/pathological reference standard.Results83 female p...
ConclusionResolution of hydronephrosis took place in the majority of cases, and there was an adverse outcome in only one-third of them. Renal caliectasis was the best marker for the prediction of adverse outcome.
Most patients with intermittent hydronephrosis have preserved differential renal function (DRF), while others already have impaired DRF at diagnosis. We summarized the clinical manifestations of intermittent hydronephrosis to elucidate that may be related to DRF loss.
Authors: Su X, Tang Q, Fang D, Xiong G, Singla N, He Q, Zhang L, Liu P, Fan Y, Hao H, Li X, Zhou L Abstract The oncological outcomes of upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) and bladder cancer (BC) in patients treated with radical surgeries remains controversial. A retrospective analysis of the clinicopathologicla data of 228 consecutive UTUC patients and 174 BC patients treated with radical surgeries from 2000 to 2012 at a high-volume center in China was conducted. Kaplan-Meier method and Cox regression were used to compare overall survival (OS) and cancer-specific survival (CSS) and to find prognostic factors. ...
This study demonstrated that indwelling catheterization, hydronephrosis, and renal stones are significantly associated withS. aureus-related UTI (p = 0.01, odds ratio = 3.1; andp
The Urinary Tract Dilation (UTD) system was created to address variability in hydronephrosis grading. It is unknown if or how pediatric urologists are integrating this newer system into practice.
