Laparoscopic Ureterolithotomy vs Ureteroscopic Lithotripsy for Large Ureteral Stones.

Conclusion: This study demonstrates that TLU is an effective and safe procedure to treat large impacted upper ureteral stones. When compared to UL-RIRS, TLU showed equivalent efficacy and safety, though there were failed first-line treatments. PMID: 31223226 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsThe use of MEDJUS is a safe and effective strategy that obviates the need for additional general anesthesia in children. Its insertion is similar to that with regular DJUS, and its easy and less time-consuming removal benefits both the patient and the hospital and validates its clinical use.

We report on a 31-year-old male patient with non-invasive papillary urothelial carcinoma, low grade of the renal pelvis disguised as xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis. The only symptom of the patient was lower back pain. The initial renal-enhanced computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and contrast-enhanced ultrasonography showed that the right kidney had a benign lesion and this inflammatory lesion might be xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis. A percutaneous renal biopsy was performed and histopathologic examination revealed a xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis. Initially, we diagnosed it as xanthogranulomatous p...

CONCLUSION: The incidence of urologic complications during radical hysterectomy is low. The risk of urologic complications may be higher for patients who are treated at a women and children's hospital, are treated in first-tier city hospitals, and receive laparoscopic surgery. Urologic complications have an impact on short-term survival, but not on long-term survival. PMID: 32507516 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Recently, minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for cervical cancer has been shown to result in a higher recurrence rate than open surgery (1). Manipulation and handling of the uterine cervix during MIS may contribute to this finding (2-4). Hence, minimal handling of the uterine cervix is being promoted in cases where MIS is still used. The parametrium can be sufficiently exposed by suspension of the umbilical ligament and ureter from the abdominal wall, minimizing the need for handling of the uterine cervix (2).
