Radiographs can be used to easily visualize common types of urinary calculi in all parts of the urinary tract. Positive-contrast excretory urography and cystourethrography are sensitive to diseases within the ureters and urethra, most commonly obstruction. Ultrasound is widely available and noninvasive and can be used to evaluate renal architecture, ureteral dilation, urinary bladder wall disease, and urolithiasis. Computed tomography is increasing in availability and provides a large amount of cross-sectional information quickly and noninvasively. Multiple imaging modalities can be used to estimate or quantify glomerular filtration rate.
There are limited number of studies comparing the results of Holmium:YAG laser (LL) and pneumatic lithotripsy (PL) for pediatric ureteral stones.

ConclusionsMultivisceral resections for T4b colon cancer are heterogeneous procedures considering risk profiles. The proposed multivisceral resection subclassification needs validation, but might improve comparability between studies and hospitals (auditing).
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...
Conclusion Enhanced autophagic degradation of AQP2 and other critical proteins, as well as ER stress in IMCD are initiated shortly after bilateral ureteral obstruction. PMID: 31736351 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
To compare the outcomes of patients who underwent early repair ( ≤7 days) of iatrogenic ureteral injury with ureteroneocystostomy and compare them to those repaired in a delayed fashion (> 7 days).
We present a case of ureteral stump syndrome treated with percutaneous transgluteal access into the stump which aided in identification of an ectopic ureteral opening that could not be identified by surgical means alone.
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...
