Is the ureteral length associated with the patient's size?

CONCLUSION: In this study, there is a positive correlation between the patients' size and the ureteral length. But this correlation is not found in some subgroups. It is better to perform in vivo the ureteral measurement to have the precise length in order to set up a pigtail stent adapted to the patient. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: 3.

ConclusionThis first AR device showed a satisfactory precision in the detection of ureters with a favorable opinion of surgeons. This surgical assistance system could be helpful in the performance of difficult procedures, for example in the case of patients, which have undergone multiple surgeries in the past.

Conclusion: Endoscopic lithotripsy is safe and effective in treating large ureteral stones. After a single endoscopic procedure, approximately 4 out of 5 patients are expected to become stone free. This rate increases to 95% with a second session of lithotripsy.Urol Int

ConclusionsBoth lateral and prone approach are feasible and reasonably safe to perform RPN in children but the superiority of one approach over another is not still confirmed. Although prone technique resulted faster compared to lateral approach, the choice of the technique remains dependent on the surgeon ’s personal preference and experience. Our results would suggest that the lateral approach should be preferred to the prone technique when a longer ureterectomy is required, for example in cases of vesico-ureteral reflux into the affected kidney moiety, in order to avoid to leave a long ureteric s tump that could b...

ConclusionsIntravenous administration of the preclinical dyes IRDye® 800CW, IRDye® 800 BK and IRDye® 800NOS facilitated successful identification of the anatomical course of the ureter in living pig models. The highest measured TBR occurred with the use of IRDye® 800BK. Ex vivo, a correlation was observed between the fluorescence intensities of the signal with the concentration of the dye and with the distance to the object.

ConclusionsOur individual outcomes demonstrate a high success rate regarding resolution of obstruction and preventing deterioration in renal function. We also report that a number of patients, who despite meeting the radiological criteria to undergo RALP, had alternate underlying causes for their pain symptoms. For this reason, we propose that the primary measure of success for RALP should be based on renal function and radiological outcomes, rather than the outcomes relating to pain. Both surgeons and patients should be aware that whilst RALP is a highly successful procedure, persistence of pain may be due to overlapping ...

This study proposes to compare both approaches regarding the probability of spontaneous stone passage (SSP) and its effect on patient ’s quality of life (QoL). A prospective trial was carried out from July to October of 2017. 50 patients were selected with hydronephrosis secondary to ureteral stones requiring urgent urinary diversion and divided into two groups according to diversion technique: percutaneous nephrostomy (PCN) or retrograde ureteral stent (RUS). The rate of SSP and QoL were evaluated. A PCN group (18 patients) and a RUS group (32 patients) were set. Stone size was higher in PCN (median 92 mm2) tha...

ConclusionsLaparoscopic management of a uterine rudimentary horn is feasible with satisfactory uterine reconstruction. This is not the first case of this surgery performed by laparoscopy. A similar case has been published in 2015 [1], and recently another video [2] has been published describing 2 other cases.
