Ureteral obstruction and hydronephrosis caused by foreign body: A case report and literature review

We report a 36-year-old female who was referred to our hospital due to a 4-year history of dull pain on the left back. Diagnosis: X-ray and abdominal CT revealed a foreign body around the upper part of the left ureter with ureteral obstruction and hydronephrosis. Interventions: Laparoscopy was performed and a 3-cm sewing needle was removed successfully. Outcomes: After 6 months’ follow-up, the patient's ureteral obstruction and hydronephrosis were significantly reduced, and the double-J ureteral stent was removed. Lessons: This case indicated that ureteral obstruction and hydronephrosis caused by foreign bodies needed to be early diagnosed and located. Invasive therapies rather than conservative treatments are preferred to remove the FBs and relieve obstruction.

Conclusion: Although left-sided gallbladder is a very rare disease, it is possible to diagnose it preoperatively and perform laparoscopic cholecystectomy safely by adjusting port position. The common important features of left-sided gallbladder include distribution of the left portal vein crossing over to the right side of the liver and increased size of the left portal vein. These variations may have important clinical implications in the management of hepatic resection including donor hepatectomy. PMID: 31824885 [PubMed]

Abstract A 73-year-old man presented with right lower back pain and dysuria. Right hydronephrosis and a large pelvic large mass were seen on computed tomography (CT). Although his prostate-specific antigen (PSA) was 0.5 ng/mL, an irregularly enlarged, stony, hard prostate was palpable on digital rectal examination. A prostate tumor was suspected, and a transrectal prostate biopsy and right transurethral ureteral stent placement were performed. Histological and immunohistochemical studies revealed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Positron emission tomography-computed tomography showed abnormal uptake in the stomach, ...

This study retrospectively summarized the clinical diagnosis and treatment of fibroepithelial polyps>5 cm in length in the proximal ureter of 6 patients who received treatment in the Affiliated Renji Hospital of Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine between December 2010 and February 2017. The length of fibroepithelial polyps ranged from 5.8 to 8.2 cm. There were 4 males and 2 females with the mean age of 32.6 ± 9.8 years. Unilateral polyps were found in all patients (right: n = 4; left: n = 2). Hydronephrosis of different extents was noted in these patients, 4 complained of back pain an...

Abstract Ureterolithiasis is one of the most frequently diagnosed urologic diseases worldwide. Its annual incidence in Japan increased three-fold from 1965 to 2005. Ureterolithiasis incidence is affected by numerous factors, including race, sex, body weight, fluid intake, and climate. Here, we aimed to address the latter by considering the effect of seasonal variation on stone incidence and incorporating this information into a predictive model for differential diagnosis of ureteral stone from other conditions with similar presentations. We retrospectively identified 491 patients in our emergency department comput...

Authors: VanValkenburg S, Trussell JC, Lavelle WF Abstract Iatrogenic ureteral injuries are rare and must be accurately identified to minimizing the risk for additional complications. Anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) is a valuable technique utilized in spine surgery, with its own unique set of complications. For example, retroperitoneal fluid collections, following ALIF surgery are rare and may result in back pain, radicular pain, nausea, and even death. It is important to rapidly identify the nature of the fluid collection to clarify appropriate management options. The purpose of this case report is to pres...
