Antibacterial effect of fosfomycin tromethamine on the bacteria inside urinary infection stones

ConclusionsFT is more effective than cefuroxime, which is commonly used during the perioperative period of urinary stones, and exerts a high antibacterial effect on these internal bacteria, and effectively reduces the probability of infection and sepsis after urinary stone surgery. FT can be used as an antibiotic during the perioperative period of urinary stones.

Abstract PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the predictive value of nephrolithometric scoring systems used to predict the complexity of renal stones for the outcomes of retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 81 patients who underwent RIRS for nephrolithiasis between January 2013 and October 2017 were reviewed in this retrospective study. Guy's Stone Score (GSS), the S.T.O.N.E., Clinical Research Office of the Endourologic Society (CROES), and Seoul National University Renal Stone Complexity (S-ReSC) nephrolithometry scores were assessed by same researcher for each p...

CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of de novo nephrolithiasis in ESRD patients on HD was 10.5%. Increased serum uric acid, decreased serum magnesium and ionized calcium, and absence of hypertension were associated with increased stone-formation in ESRD patients on HD.

Objective This review aimed to confirm the association between ambient temperature and incidence of urolithiasis and evaluate the impact thereof. Methods A systematic literature review was performed up to September 2019 using multiple databases. The effect of temperature on urolithiasis risk was assessed using risk ratio (RR). Pearson correlation coefficient (Pearson’s r) was used to evaluate the linear association between ambient tempe rature and urolithiasis incidence. The non-linear association between climatic temperature and the urolithiasis incidence was also evaluated. Results Twenty-four studies related to...

ConclusionsGiant parathyroid adenoma is a rare cause of primary hyperparathyroidism and usually presents symptomatically  with high calcium and parathyroid hormone levels. Giant parathyroid adenoma is diagnosed by imaging and laboratory studies. Management is typically surgical, aiming at complete resection. Patients usually recover with no long-term complications or recurrence.

In recent years, work has been done to understand the mechanisms of Doppler ultrasound twinkling artifacts (TAs) and why they appear over kidney stones. In the work described here, twinkling artifacts were evaluated as a possible method of locating and characterizing kidney stones. Doppler ultrasound scanning was used to evaluate 47 stones of different types and sizes in the range 1.31 –55.76 mm2 in cross-sectional area (average = 9.65 mm2). An isolated stone study was used to understand the behavior of the TAs.

Authors: Uehara A, Suzuki T, Yamamoto Y, Hasegawa M, Koitabashi K, Yazawa M, Koike J, Shibagaki Y Abstract A 77-year-old man with a history of hypertension, prostate hyperplasia, and urolithiasis was admitted for acute kidney injury caused by hypercalcemia. Neck ultrasonography showed a large cyst adjacent to the right lower thyroid lobe. Although a technetium99m sestamibi scan was negative, an extremely high intracystic intact parathyroid hormone level suggested that the cyst had a parathyroid origin and that a functional parathyroid cyst was present. Immunohistochemical staining for the calcium-sensing receptor (...
