Massive hematuria due to an autogenous saphenous vein graft and urinary bladder fistula in an extra-anatomic iliofemoral bypass: a case report
ConclusionThe incidence of artery-to-urinary tract fistulas is growing due to the increasing use of urologic and vascular surgery, pelvic oncologic surgery, and radiation therapy. In addition to fistulas involving a degenerated artery and ureter or synthetic grafts and ureter, they can also involve an autogenous vein graft and the urinary bladder. In our patient, the fistula was a result of erosion of the bladder from a pseudoaneurysm at the proximal anastomosis of an autogenous vein iliofemoral bypass in an extra-anatomic position. Open surgery remains the best treatment option, although there is increasing evidence of successful endovascular treatment.
CONCLUSION: Renal pelvic perforation secondary toBevacizumab is infrequent, but it must be taken into accountin patients treated with this drug. PMID: 31950926 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: Tamsulosin and solifenacin combination is a significantly good treatment option for reducing LUTS associated with DJ stents. Mirabegron single therapy showed good results in treating LUTS and better results in treating OAB symptoms related with DJ stents than other therapies. PMID: 31950924 [PubMed - in process]
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]
AbstractUrothelial carcinoma has a varied and wide histological spectrum posing a diagnostic challenge in H&E examination alone. Immunohistochemical markers like GATA-3 along with other appropriate panel of IHC can be used. However, the percentage positivity and its intensity may vary in different variants and grades of primary and metastatic urothelial carcinoma. To observe the GATA-3 expression patterns in all the grades and different variants of primary and metastatic urothelial carcinomas. It is a prospective and retrospective observational study. All the clinically suspected urothelial carcinoma (UC) during January 20...
ConclusionsAssociation with scintigraphic and pathological results empowers the value of this parameter. Disulphide/native thiol and native thiol/total thiol ratios indicate complete obstruction. These findings may shed light to more comprehensive studies.
We present a unique case of ureterocutaneous fistula secondary to an obstructed ureteric stone. A fistulagram confirmed a communication between right flank and the proximal ureter. Ureterocutanoues fistula in the absence of trauma, iatrogenic causes, granulomatous infection or malignancy is highly unusual.
A case of bilateral ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) disruptions in a patient with bilateral duplication anomalies is presented. A UPJ disruption with a duplication anomaly has not been reported let alone bilateral duplication anomalies. The unrecognized duplication anomalies led to isolated and obstructed upper pole segments that were managed by bilateral heminephrectomies. A nephrocutaneous fistula developed after one of the heminephrectomies that was successfully managed using a method of percutaneous fulguration and fibrin sealant.
We experienced an extremely rare case of ureteral sextuplication with a blind-ending ureter originating from the upper pole. The patient had six separate ureters and six renal pelvises with one ureteral orifice. The left kidney was hypoplastic and its differential function was 6.5%. The patient underwent definitive surgical treatment to repair the anomaly (ureteroureterostomy and reimplantation of the formed ureter). The surgery was successful and the postoperative course was uneventful. We herein report the first such case in the English-language literature and discuss the etiology of this ureteral anomaly, the method of ...
Robot-assisted laparoscopic extravesical ureteral reimplantation has previously been described as a viable minimally invasive option to open surgery. However, concerns for robotic surgery have been raised owing to assumed higher costs and heterogeneous clinical outcomes. We hypothesized that similar hospital charges and clinical outcomes occur when comparing open and robotic cases in matched cohorts.
