Encrustation of ureteral double J stents is a common complication that may affect its removal. The aim of the proposed study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a new oral composition to prevent double J...
We report on a 31-year-old male patient with non-invasive papillary urothelial carcinoma, low grade of the renal pelvis disguised as xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis. The only symptom of the patient was lower back pain. The initial renal-enhanced computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and contrast-enhanced ultrasonography showed that the right kidney had a benign lesion and this inflammatory lesion might be xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis. A percutaneous renal biopsy was performed and histopathologic examination revealed a xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis. Initially, we diagnosed it as xanthogranulomatous p...
We present a bulk motion detection and a linear time invariant (LTI) model-based motion correction approach for DCE-MRI alignment that leverages the temporal dynamics of the DCE data at each voxel. We evaluate our approach on 10 newborn patients that underwent DCE imaging without sedation. For each patient, we reconstructed the sequence of DCE images, detected and removed the volumes corrupted by motion using a self navigation approach, aligned the sequence using our approach and fitted the TK model to compute GFR. The results show that our approach correctly aligned all volumes and improved the TK model fit and, on averag...

When operating in the robotic assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) era, it is estimated that ureteric injuries happen in less than 0.05% of cases.1 Ureteral duplication is a risk factor for injury along with: previous pelvic surgeries, renal transplant, need for extensive adhesiolysis, previous pelvic irradiation, difficult posterior dissection, enlarged prostate glands and the presence of a median lobe. Given the incidence of less than 0.001%, management of ectopic ureters for patients undergoing a RARP is foreign to most urologists.

CONCLUSIONS: Our type of ureteral stenting has a low rate of BK viruria and BK viremia compared with other studies. In addition, with our technique, the ureteral stent removal procedure does not require an invasive endoscopic procedure, thereby avoiding the consequent economic and assistance inconvenience typically associated with an endoscopic procedure.

We present a video on our novel techniques in these difficult VVF repair to aid in avoidance of ureteric orifice entrapment during VVF repair.
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.
