Pediatric bilateral ureteral stone successfully removed using single ‐use flexible ureteroscopy with a holmium: YAG laser

A 12 ‐year‐old boy received steroid for his minimal change nephrotic syndrome for 10 years, and bilateral renal and ureteral stones and hydronephrosis were observed. Single‐use flexible ureteroscopy is usable for pediatric lithotripsy with Ho: YAG laser.

ConclusionTolvaptan was very efficient in this case of hyponatremia associated with steroid-resistant NS. Tolvaptan should be considered in the management of therapy-resistant hyponatremia in patients with NS.

Eur J Pediatr Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1712172 Introduction Ureteric reimplantation due to ureterovesical junction (UVJ) obstruction enjoys high success in the short term. However, renal function after reimplantation must accommodate the numerous changes in the pediatric urinary tract that occur along with child development that may theoretically cause an occult loss of renal function. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether improved renal function after ureter reimplantation for antenatal diagnosed UVJ obstruction remains stable after puberty. Materials and Methods Twenty-one children who underwe...

We present a case of a 10-month-old boy admitted to our Department. In the prenatal period he was diagnosed with right-sided hydronephrosis due to congenital IV/V˚ vesicoureteral reflux. In newborn period, he presented hypocalcemic convulsions due to hypoparathyroidism (total Ca 1.12 mmol/l, PTH 0.7 pg/ml). Although he failed newborn screening hearing test, he was not further diagnosed until we commissioned audiologic examination which revealed bilateral mild sensorineural deafness. Final diagnosis of Barakat syndrome was confirmed by finding a new mutation in the GATA3 gene (c.1047+1G>A). The patient is now under the ...
