ConclusionEarly diagnostic imaging with CT while a patient is symptomatic can aid in making an accurate diagnosis. Laparoscopic repair can be safely used with good outcome in the context of an incarcerated obturator hernia.

A six-month-old child was admitted into our center with complaint of hydronephrosis in June 2018. He was diagnosed as embryoid rhabdomyosarcoma after cystoscopy with biopsy. After 22Gy radiotherapy and 4 cycles chemotherapy(VAC), robot-assisted radical cystectomy was performed. The orthotopic neobladder was reconstructed with sigmoid colon and bilateral ureter were reimplanted in Politano-Leadbetter technique. The patient was discharged after 14 days and chemotherapy was continued. Recent ultrasound examination showed that his maximal bladder capacity had increased to 120 ml, and intravenous urography revealed no urine leakage.

Diaphragmatic herniations are the rarest form of ureteral herniations with only around 9 cases reported since 1958.1-10 Though uncommon, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a posterior diaphragmatic or paraspinal opacity with associated hydronephrosis. Correct diagnosis is of paramount importance and can be easily established by non-invasive imaging technique. In symptomatic individuals, laparoscopic intervention can be offered with good results in fit patients with ureteral stenting reserved for poor surgical candidates .Here we present a successful laparoscopic management of an elderly female who pre...

We report a case of small bowel herniation caused by the ureter in a woman who underwent radical hysterectomy for cervical cancer. Patient concerns: A 53-year-old woman presented with acute abdominal pain and vomiting and reported a history of radical hysterectomy for cervical cancer 6 years prior to presentation. Diagnoses: Computed tomography revealed segmental luminal dilatation of pelvic ileal loops, 2 transition zones with the beak sign in the left-sided pelvic cavity, and reduced enhancement of bowel loops. Hydronephrosis with abrupt luminal narrowing of the left distal ureter was also observed. Interventions:...

[Pelviureteric junction obstruction and crossing vessels: pro "vascular hitch"]. Aktuelle Urol. 2019 Nov 07;: Authors: Zahn K, Younsi NF, Stein R Abstract The vascular hitch procedure for pelviureteric junction obstruction caused by crossing lower-pole vessels is a controversial treatment option. Since this minimally-invasive technique has been introduced in patients with aberrant lower-pole vessels, multiple publications have reported successful short, intermediate and long-term outcomes. Success rates ofโ€Š>โ€Š90โ€Š% are similar to those of Anderson-Hynes pyeloplasty. In general, an ass...

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 ...
