CAMBRIDGE (CBS) – A new treatment could help ease the passage of kidney stones, according to researchers at MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital. Scientists said this week that muscle relaxants can reduce the contractions that cause pain when passing the stones. About 1 in 10 people will have the painful experience of kidney stones. They cause more than 500,000 emergency room visits in the United States every year. But local researchers think they’ve made a discovery that can help. They say delivering a combination of two muscle relaxants directly to the ureter, the tube that connects the kidneys and bladder,...

Researchers at MIT have identified a combination of muscle-relaxing drugs that, when administered to the ureter, eliminated pain in pigs with kidney stones. It would be the first new treatment in 40 years.

We present the case of a 29 year-old G0 with a past history of ureteral obstruction and hydroureteronephrosis due to deeply infiltrating endometriosis requiring left ureterolysis, complete left parametrectomy, and left salpingo-oophorectomy. She now presents with recurrent pelvic pain and a new right adnexal mass consistent with an endometrioma requiring surgical intervention.

Authors: Van Slambrouck J, Vlasselaers J, Devos B Abstract Peritoneal tuberculosis is a rare extrapulmonary manifestation of tuberculosis. Considering the diagnosis of peritoneal tuberculosis in a low prevalence setting can be vital for the further clinical management in selected patients.In a young male with migration background, presenting with generalised abdominal pain, computed tomography revealed ascites, omental and peritoneal thickening and enlarged mesentery lymph nodes. Computed tomography also revealed a distal ureteral calculus at the right vesico-ureteral junction. Diagnostic laparoscopy showed a nodul...

We report a case of a 35 year-old men presenting with pelvic pain with lower urinary tract symptoms for at least 3 months duration. On magnetic resonance urograms double collecting system in the left kidney and also hydro-uretero-nephrosis in the collecting system which drained the upper pole of the left kidney were seen. The ureter draining the upper pole of the left kidney was seen to open into the prostatic utricle with an ureterocele and multiple stones. Left ureteroneocystostomy was performed.

Rationale: Crossed renal ectopia (CRE) is a rare congenital anomaly that is frequently associated with gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, genital and bone malformations. To the best of our knowledge, only 35 cases of crossed renal ectopia involving calculi and 30 cases of CRE associated with renal carcinoma have been reported to date. Patient concerns: Here, we present 2 cases of crossed renal ectopia. A 59-year-old woman with diabetes presented to our hospital with abdominal pain. The second patient was a 24-year-old woman who complained with abdominal pain with a duration of 1 day. Diagnoses: On the basis of abdom...

We report a 36-year-old female who was referred to our hospital due to a 4-year history of dull pain on the left back. Diagnosis: X-ray and abdominal CT revealed a foreign body around the upper part of the left ureter with ureteral obstruction and hydronephrosis. Interventions: Laparoscopy was performed and a 3-cm sewing needle was removed successfully. Outcomes: After 6 months’ follow-up, the patient's ureteral obstruction and hydronephrosis were significantly reduced, and the double-J ureteral stent was removed. Lessons: This case indicated that ureteral obstruction and hydronephrosis caused by foreign ...

In this study, a prototype artificial neural network model (ANN) was used to estimate the stone passage rate and to determine the effectivity of predictive factors on this rate in patients with ureteral stones. The retrospective study included a total of 192 patients with ureteral stones, comprising 128 (66.7%) men and 64 (33.3%) women. Patients were divided into two groups. Group 1 (n: 125) consisted of people who spontaneously passed their stones, Group 2 (n: 67) consisted of people who could not pass stones spontaneously. The groups were compared with regard to the relationship between input data and stone passage rate ...

Conclusion: In the absence of any clinical contraindications, antegrade JJ stenting is a suitable alternative to both percutaneous nephrostomy and retrograde stenting in patients with dilated renal collecting systems secondary to malignant ureteral obstruction, providing significant cost savings and high success rates.Resumo Objetivo: Comparar a rela ção custo-efetividade de duas técnicas percutâneas utilizadas no tratamento da uropatia obstrutiva maligna - inserção anterógrada de cateter duplo J (JJ) versus nefrostomia percutânea - sob a perspectiva do sistema de sa&ua...
