Outcome of retrograde flexible ureterorenoscopy and laser lithotripsy for treatment of multiple renal stones
Conclusion RIRS via F-URS and laser lithotripsy is a safe and effective treatment option with high success rate for patients with multiple renal stones of 11–30mm stone burden. It is indicated when other stone treatment modalities contraindicated or have failed. However, for complex or challenging stones, staged procedures may be required.

Two pelvises, one stone: A different approach for management of calculi in a duplex renal collecting system
We describe a patient with a duplex collecting system presenting with a renal calculus. Initial flexible ureteroscopy failed to reach the collecting system containing the stone due to inability to visualize an additional ureteric orifice. The patient then underwent percutaneous puncture of the stone containing moiety, followed by antegrade stent insertion. This allowed for guidewire-assisted passage of a ureteroscope into the duplex collecting system, where the calculi were identified and fragmented. (Source: African Journal of Urology)

We report a case of a young patient admitted for penetrating abdominal trauma following a wound by a sharp object, admitted to the surgical emergency department at CHU Ibn Ruchd Casablanca, with hemodynamic instability and evisceration. Intraoperative abdominal exploration noted a complete ureteral section with a partial jejunal section without major vascular injury. Adequate haemostasis has been achieved; uretero - ureteral anastomosis with a double J stent was performed to treat the ureteral section, and jejunal wound was sutured with absorbable suture with feeding jejunostomy.

The role of 3-dimensional sonography and virtual sonographic cystscopy in detection of bladder tumors
Conclusion Additional to lower costs and no radiation exposure, 3D sonography appears comparable to the use of CT scans and MRI in providing virtual cystoscopy in investigating bladder cancer. Virtual sonographic cystoscopy may therefore be a useful alternative for screening and follow up of tumors, particularly if conventional cystoscopy cannot be performed. However, 3D sonography cannot replace pathological staging, and there is still a need to further improve this technology for enhanced assessment of mucosal abnormalities.
