CONCLUSION: Retrograde intrarenal surgery for the management of renal stone in kidney anomalies is safe, feasible and effective. However; more cases and comparative studies with percutaneous and extracorporeal lithotripsy are needed to optimize treatment decision making. PMID: 32240110 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: Rates of perinatal complications in our series are more reassuring than the ubiquitously quoted rates from small and dated studies. The diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism may be easily missed during pregnancy, owing to its non-specific presentation. A high index of suspicion and measurement of ionized calcium levels is encouraged, especially for patients with excessive nausea and vomiting, nephrolithiasis, atypical presentations of hypertensive disorders, or isolated polyhydramnios. Mild degrees of calcium derangement do not preclude adverse perinatal outcomes. Surgery appears to be safe, even in the thir...

This study is consisted of 94 patients with poor obstetric history. Patients were evaluated in terms of the presence of cholelithiasis and urolithiasis in association with MTHFR polymorphism(s). Additional laboratory tests including homocysteine measurements were also performed. ROC analysis for assessing the performance of blood homocysteine level in predicting the presence of cholelithiasis and urolithiasis were also performed.Results: Patients were divided into three groups such as cholelithiasis group (n = 9, 9.6%), urolithiasis group (n = 18, 19.1%) and control group (n = 67, ...

AbstractObjectivesPrevious studies have shown that split-bolus protocols in virtual non-contrast (VNC) reconstructions of dual-energy computed tomography (DE-CT) significantly decrease radiation dose in patients with urinary stone disease. To evaluate the impact on kidney stone detection rate of stone composition, size, tube voltage, and iodine concentration for VNC reconstructions of DE-CT.MethodsIn this prospective study, 16 kidney stones of different sizes (1.2 –4.5 mm) and compositions (struvite, cystine, whewellite, brushite) were placed within a kidney phantom. Seventy-two scans with nine different iodine ...
