The objectives of our study were to (i) examine the rate of vesico-ureteral injury at benign hysterectomy by surgical approach and (ii) compare the risk of vesico-ureteral injury specifically between minimally-invasive laparoscopic and abdominal hysterectomy on a populational level.DesignRetrospective population-based observational study.SettingThe National Inpatient Sample.Patients501,110 women who underwent hysterectomy for benign gynecological disease from 1/2012-9/2015 were included: total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH, n=284,365 [56.7%]), total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH, n=60,410, [12.1%]), abdominal supracerv...

Conclusion: There is a wide variety in the use and awareness of radiation during URS. To further reduce radiation and it's negative effect for patients and medical staff, awareness about radiation safety should increase among urologists. PMID: 31718463 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

RehmeAbstractMeyer-Weigert-Rule predicts the draining pattern of duplex ureters in bipolar renal duplications. The upper pole is normally seen as ectopic and therefore dysplastic due to obstruction, whereas the lower pole is related to vesicoureteral reflux. In our case, this rule is violated with uncrossed ureter duplex and a dysplastic lower pole in connection with obstruction.

CONCLUSIONS: The Tc-99m DMSA scan remains the gold standard to detect renal parenchymal anomalies. A different length between the kidneys>1.11 SDS and dilated VUR are predictors of abnormal Tc-99m DMSA renal scan. PMID: 31726462 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Metastasis of prostate cancer (PCa) to renal pelvis is extremely rare. A 64-year-old man was hospitalized for increased prostate specific antigen (PSA) after radical prostatectomy. 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET/CT showed hydronephrosis caused by a mass in the left renal pelvis without significant uptake of PSMA tracer. The histopathology indicated metastatic PCa with a Gleason score of 5+5 but negative for prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA) following nephroureterectomy. Although metastasis to renal pelvis is rare, the occurrence possibility could not be ignored when with hydronephrosis is found in prostate cancer patients.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is characterized by renal dysfunction, which is a common feature of other major diseases, such as hypertension and diabetes. Unilateral ureteral obstruction (UUO) has been used as a model of CKD in experimental animals and consists of total obstruction of one kidney ureter. The UUO decreases renal blood flow, which promotes the synthesis of renin in the juxtaglomerular apparatus, the first step in renin–angiotensin system (RAS) cascade. RAS induces inflammation and remodeling, along with reduced renal function. However, it remains unknown whether intrarenal RAS (iRAS) is activated in earl...
