Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery Through an Incision of the Ureter as a Good Treatment Option for Large Ureteropelvic Impacted Stones in Transplanted Kidneys.

Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery Through an Incision of the Ureter as a Good Treatment Option for Large Ureteropelvic Impacted Stones in Transplanted Kidneys. Exp Clin Transplant. 2018 Sep 25;: Authors: Ietto G, Saredi G, Soldini G, Iovino D, Amico F, Zani E, Berti L, Tozzi M, Carcano G Abstract Urolithiasis is a rare complication after kidney transplant. Over the years, treatment of kidney stones has evolved radically, but a standard approach for transplanted kidneys has not yet been defined. Here, we present a 69-year-old male patient who received successful treatment of nephrolithiasis of the transplanted kidney. The patient, who had received a kidney from a deceased donor, was admitted to our department following a posttransplant Doppler ultrasonography showing severe hydronephrosis of the transplanted kidney associated with acute renal function decay. Computed tomography scan confirmed the hydronephrosis of the transplanted kidney, showing a large, impacted, ureteropelvic 3-cm-diameter stone and other concretions around the ureteral stent. The patient was then treated with retrograde intrarenal surgery during an open ureterotomy. His postoperative course was uneventful, and he showed good functional reprise and a rapid decrease of serum creatinine levels. Intraoperative retrograde intrarenal surgery could be a valid option for treatment of kidney stones of the transplanted kidney during open surgery of the ureter or during ureterovesical anastomosis. ...

Authors: Dolkhani S, Najafpour A, Mohammadi R Abstract Purpose: The improvement of techniques using conduits that connects the ends of damaged nerves and guides the growth of nerve fibers between the stumps, including adoption of natural or synthetic materials still is a challenge in peripheral nerve repair. The aim of the present novel study was to fabricate and transplant chitosan-selenium biodegradable nanocomposite conduit on transected sciatic nerve in rat model.Methods: In NORMAL group, the left sciatic nerve was exposed through a gluteal muscle incision and after careful hemostasis skin was closed. In TRANSE...

This study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of internal symmetry (the number and morphology of root canals) in the mandibular incisors using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). A total of 302 CBCT scans involving 1,208 mandibular incisors were evaluated using the Vertucci's classification regarding the number and configuration of root canals. The central mandibular incisors exhibited two root canals in 22.6% of patients and lateral incisors in 24.3% of patients. Most teeth (76.4%) had a type I configuration (a single root canal, 1-1), 21.7% had type II (2-1), 1.1% had type V (1-2), and 0.8% had type IV (2-2). Teeth with ...

This report presents a case where sinus floor elevation was performed using tricalcium phosphate (TCP) plates supported by implant bodies, and only the blood clot was present around the implant bodies. Cone-beam computed tomography images, taken one year after the lateral approach, revealed the presence of a TCP-like radio-opacity, which almost disappeared after two years. About seven years after the surgery, the patient's superstructure and occlusion were stable. Furthermore, the grafted TCP was completely absorbed, and the implant body appeared to be in good condition, with no signs of bone resorption around the implant....

Conclusions: This study shows significant differences between both insertion techniques regarding correct graft orientation directly after graft implantation leading to prolonged insertion-to-attachment time when the graft is flushed instead of pushed into the anterior chamber.

Conclusions: The use of this repeatable technique to harvest and transplant an autologous DSAEK graft eliminates endothelial rejection in high-risk eyes.

Authors: Tavares MG, Tedesco-Silva Junior H, Pestana JOM Abstract Early hospital readmission (EHR), defined as all readmissions within 30 days of initial hospital discharge, is a health care quality measure. It is influenced by the demographic characteristics of the population at risk, the multidisciplinary approach for hospital discharge, the access, coverage, and comprehensiveness of the health care system, and reimbursement policies. EHR is associated with higher morbidity, mortality, and increased health care costs. Monitoring EHR enables the identification of hospital and outpatient healthcare weaknesses and t...

We present the case of a 46-year-old man who underwent successful antegrade ureteroscopy for lithiasis in his allograft ureter. At a scheduled follow-up 15  years after transplantation, computed tomography (CT) detected a 12-mm renal stone in the renal pelvis of the transplanted kidney. During his follow-up, gross hematuria was seen; the stone moved to the ureter, causing hydronephrosis. Ultrasound and non-contrast CT revealed hydronephrosis and a 15- mm stone in the transplanted ureter. Considering the stone size, location, and the difficulty of the access to the anastomosed ureteral orifice, percutaneous ureteroscop...
