Management and diagnosis of Nutcracker syndrome- a case report

Publication date: Available online 14 December 2019Source: Urology Case ReportsAuthor(s): P.P. Genov, I.V. Kirilov, I.A. Hristova, N.H. Kolev, V.R. Dunev, B.A. StoykovAbstractNutcracker syndrome (NCS), also known as left renal vein (LRV) entrapment syndrome is a condition that leads to stenosis of the aorto-mesenteric region of the LRV, with dilatation of the distal portion of the vessel. A 43-year-old woman was admitted to the Urology department with symptoms of intermittent painless hematuria and mild to moderate left lumbar pain for the last three months. The patient underwent cystoscopy under general anesthesia. Bloody urine was noticed to appear from the left ureter ostium and an intra-venous contrast CT of the abdomen was performed. The final diagnosis was anterior Nutcracker syndrome.

AbstractBackgroundWe sought to determine the rate of emergency department (ED) attendance for complications after ureterorenoscopy (URS) for stone disease and to identify risk factors for ED attendance after URS.MethodsAn analysis of all patients undergoing URS over 12  months at a single institution was performed. Patient demographics, preoperative and intraoperative variables associated with postoperative complications and subsequent ED attendance were collected. Logistic regression analyses were performed to determine predictors of URS complications presenting to ED.ResultsIn total, 202 ureteroscopies were performe...

Abstract Hydronephrosis in infants and children is most commonly due to a congenital, intrinsic obstruction of the uretero-pelvic junction. The Gold standard of care is defined as a dismembered pyeloplasty, nowadays mostly performed in a minimally-invasive procedure, either through a laparoscopic (also robotic-assisted) or retroperitoneoscopic approach. Less common is an extrinsic obstruction of the ureter or the uretero-pelvic junction caused by an aberrant crossing pole vessel, a condition more likely to affect children beyond infancy. This entity most often becomes apparent when it causes intermittent abdominal...

CONCLUSION: At least three sexual intercourses per week after SWL can effectively improve the stone free rate, reduce the formation of steinstrasse and relieve renal colic. It provides a choice for urologists in the SWL treatment of lower ureteral calculi. PMID: 32180212 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion: Pain was the commonest indication for intra-corporeal lithotripsy (92.8%) and also the commonest post-operative complication (9.30%). Funding: None declared. PMID: 32116343 [PubMed - in process]

We report outcomes of our initial experience with LP in 38 children from 2 months of age. Materials and Methods From June 2015 to December 2017 38 children aged 2-60 months (mean age 1.7 years) underwent LP for correction of PUJ obstruction. The mean pre operative anteroposterior diameter of the renal pelvis (APD) was 43,5mm and all patients had hydronephrosis (APD 21.4-76 mm) and obstructed curve on diuretic renogram. Anderson-Hynes pyeloplasty was the performed technique. Results are reported. Results Mean operative time was 107 minutes (70-180) with no conversion to open procedure. Pain control was needed mainly in the ...
