Abstract Kidney stone disease is a crystal concretion formed in kidneys which has been associated with an increased risk of chronic kidney disease. MicroRNAs are functionally involved in kidney injury. Data mining using a microRNA array database suggested that miR-21 may be associated with calcium oxalate monohydrate (COM)-induced renal tubular cell injury. Here, we confirmed that COM exposure significantly upregulated miR-21 expression, inhibited proliferation, promoted apoptosis and caused lipid accumulation in the immortalized renal tubular cell line HK-2. Moreover, inhibition of miR-21 enhanced proliferation a...

Conclusions Retroperitoneoscopic approach is a good alternative for the treatment of large impacted ureteral stones, large pielic stones and for non-functional kidney removal due to stone disease. In expert hands, it can be safely used with a good SFR. The combination with ICG or other endourological techniques is feasible, allowing higher SFR.

An 80 year old male presented to the emergency department after an episode of gross hematuria four hours prior. Review of systems at the emergency department was positive for dysuria and chronic obstructive urinary symptoms while negative for fevers, chills, or flank pain. Of note, his past medical history includes atrial fibrillation on rivaroxaban anticoagulation, left bundle branch block, coronary artery disease (status post drug eluting stent placement to the left circumflex artery in 2003 and drug eluting stent placement to the left anterior descending artery in 2013), peripheral vascular disease (status post bilatera...

ConclusionsSeveral programs are still reluctant to allow potential donors with nephrolithiasis to donate. There is an unmet need to develop evidence-based guidelines to optimize outcomes in this population of kidney donors with nephrolithiasis and their recipients.

Abstract Mortality among patients with emphysematous pyelonephritis (EPN) has reduced from 78% to 21%, yet it is one of the most serious urologic emergencies. This prospective observational study aims to study and compare clinical profile, management, and outcomes in diabetic and nondiabetic patients with EPN. All patients of EPN admitted to emergency medical services were included in the study. Patients were grouped into diabetic and nondiabetic EPN, and the eventual predictors of mortality were assessed. The mean age of patients was 55.43 years, with 36 (65.7%) female patients. Mortality was found to be 18.86%. ...

We report a 54-year-old man who presented with a 1-month history of an enlarged skin mass on the right flank. Diagnoses: The patient was subsequently diagnosed with metastatic SCC involving the patient's integumentary system near the flank region proximal to the right kidney following percutaneous nephrostomy. Interventions: The skin mass and the surrounding muscle tissue of the right flank were excised with a wide resection margin including radial nephrectomy. The soft tissue defect after resection was reconstructed using a unilateral gluteus maximus myocutaneous V-Y advancement flap. Outcomes: No recurrence of t...

We describe a case of a 65-year-old woman undergoing hemodialysis treatment since 1986 after a bilateral nephrectomy due to complicated nephrolithiasis. Her last access, two Tesio® tunneled cuffed catheters implanted via the right internal jugular vein functioned correctly for 14 years without complications, and so, was not replaced in the meantime. She was referred to our hospital due to a rupture in a catheter lumen, which was corrected conservatively by creating a more proximal tunnel and excising the affected area. A few weeks later, a new rupture in the same lumen was identified, so the catheter was replace...

Rationale: A horseshoe kidney is the most common congenital fusion abnormality in the kidney, occurring in approximately 1 in 400 live births. Several complications including renal malignancies, ureteropelvic junction obstruction, urolithiasis, vesicoureteral reflux, and hydronephrosis can occur in this patient population. Patient concerns: A 28-year-old woman was admitted to hospital because of chronic left low back pain. Microscopic hematuria was not seen. Computed tomography showed the horseshoe kidney and left hydronephrosis. Diagnoses: On the basis of these findings and clinical manifestations, the final diagn...
