ConclusionScanning in prone position tends to more frequently show calyceal dilation and a greater size of the anterior –posterior renal pelvic diameter, resulting in higher urinary tract dilation classification scores, with almost perfect interobserver agreement.

Authors: Kim MJ, Kim NY, Jung YA, Lee S, Jung GS, Kim JG, Lee IK, Lee S, Choi YK, Park KG Abstract Renal fibrosis is considered to be the final common outcome of chronic kidney disease. Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors have demonstrated protective effects against diabetic kidney disease. However, the anti-fibrotic effect of evogliptin, a DPP-4 inhibitor, has not been studied. Here, we report the beneficial effects of evogliptin on unilateral ureteral obstruction (UUO)-induced renal fibrosis in mice. Evogliptin attenuated UUO-induced renal atrophy and tubulointerstitial fibrosis. Immunohistochemistry and We...

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate the long-term effect of using small intestinal submucosa (SIS) for bladder augmentation in patients with neurogenic bladder.Materials and methodsA total of 15 patients (age range 14 –65 years; mean age 29.6 years) were enrolled in our study. The patients had poor bladder capacity and compliance caused by a neurogenic disorder requiring bladder augmentation. A small intestinal submucosa (SIS) cystoplasty was performed alone or in combination with ureter reimplantation. We pr ospectively followed the cohort to assess the urodynamics parameters, morphologic changes and patient satisf...

In conclusion, high-dose NR induces the onset of WAT dysfunction, which may in part explain the deterioration of metabolic health. Towards a Rigorous Definition of Cellular Senescence https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2019/11/towards-a-rigorous-definition-of-cellular-senescence/ The accumulation of lingering senescent cells is a significant cause of aging, disrupting tissue function and generating chronic inflammation throughout the body. Even while the first senolytic drugs capable of selectively destroying these cells already exist, and while a number of biotech companies are working on the productio...

Authors: Carrillo-Arroyo I, Tordable-Ojeda C, Cabezalí-Barbancho D, Morante-Valverde R, Gómez-Fraile A Abstract OBJECTIVE: The effects of pyeloplasty on renal function are not fully well defined. Our objective is to determine if renal function and renal dilation change after pyeloplasty and the risk factors that may influence in both parameters. METHODS: Retrospective study of patients who underwent pyeloplasty. The parameters analyzed included: age, differential renal function, renal dilation, infection and complications. We compared ultrasound findings with measurement of the anterior-posterior ...

Conclusion Inguinal herniation of the transplant ureter leading to ureteral obstruction is a rare, probably underreported, cause graft of dysfunction. Therefore, we advocate elective repair of inguinal or incisional hernias in renal transplant recipients. PMID: 31690216 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
