Cortisol and 11 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 2 as potential determinants of renal citrate excretion in healthy children

ConclusionsIn line with studies in hypercortisolic state, even moderately high cortisol levels in healthy children, still within the physiological range, may negatively impact on the kidney ’s citrate excretion. Besides, a higher 11β-HSD2 activity, favoring cortisol inactivation, is paralleled by an increased citrate excretion.

Ureteritis cystica is rare, benign entity that associates with chronic urothelial irritation such as recurrent urinary tract infection or nephrolithiasis. It is often diagnosed incidentally on routine imaging or ureteroscopy in asymptomatic individuals. In this case report, we present the retrograde pyelogram and ureteroscopy images of a rare case of extensive unilateral ureteritis cystica in a 78-year-old female presenting for elective stone surgery.

CONCLUSIONS: Although preoperative use of silodosin facilitated only an insignificant positive effect on UAS placement failure, it eased the F-URS procedure by reducing the ETBT, ETUOT, and AAST in seconds. More studies are needed to make an exact conclusion. PMID: 31950923 [PubMed - in process]

For as long as I can remember, “Peeling off the layers to reveal the real” has been my credo. In a dream, the words “Bare Boldly,” echoed through my sleeping but ever so active brain.” When messages come through that insistently, they can’t be ignored. My inner and outer work as a hybrid therapist-journalist prepare me to take this on every day. When that happens, I question if I am too self-revealing. Last year, I penned an article for Psych Central called When A Therapist and Journalist Comes Clean About Her Self Doubt. It takes a confessional tone as I admit that the way I present isn...

I'm a PGY-1, and with half of the year done and about 2 months of total actual EM time done, I'm noticing some pretty big recurrent problems. I was hoping to get some advice on how to deal. Firstly, I have a really bad habit of anchoring to diagnoses. Fairly often I'll get a strong bias towards whatever diagnosis seems most likely initially. The other day, a lady with history of kidney stones came in with colicky groin pain and couldn't get comfortable in any position. I got the workup... Recurrent Performance Problems
