[Prognostic factors in renal cancer with venous thrombus survival analysis.]
CONCLUSIONS: Surgical treatment of renal cancer with venous thrombus requires a multidisciplinary management. The surgical technique varies according to the level reached by the venous thrombus. Tumor stage is the most important prognostic factor. Thrombus level influences prognosis, with longer survival for patients with tumor thrombus confined to the renal vein (pT3a) in comparison to tumors with thrombus in the atrium (pT3c).

[Coordinated care unit for patients with neural tube anomalies and their families.]
Authors: Menna LR, Miguélez Lago C Abstract Bifid Spine is a multisystem malformation incurable and transmissible with a lot of important sequelae, some of them with treatment and some other avoidable. They affect and limit not only health but social-work life too. The main objective must be prevention. The primary prevention, meaning not occurrence, could be done by recognizing the possible etiologic factors that affect the population. This is a responsibility of health policies based in scientific evidences and expert's opinions. Secondary prevention would be to make efforts to decrease the consequences an...

Can surgical approach affect postoperative analgesic requirements following laparoscopic nephrectomy: Transperitoneal versus retroperitoneal? A prospective clinical study.
Authors: Savran-Karadeniz M, Kisa I, Salviz EA, Ozkan-Seyhan T, Tefik T, Sanli O, Tugrul KM Abstract OBJECTIVES: We performed this prospective clinical study to compare the postoperative recovery profile of our patients after transperitoneal (Group T) and retroperitoneal (Group R) laparoscopic nephrectomy approaches. Our primary hypothesis was that epidural analgesic consumption in Group R would be higher at the end of the first postoperative day. METHODS: Forty-four patients scheduled for elective transperitoneal or retroperitoneal laparoscopic nephrectomies were enrolled. All patients in both groups received ...

[Comparison of two on-line risk calculators versus the detection of circulating prostate cells for the detection of high risk prostate cancer at first biopsy.]
CONCLUSIONS: CPC detection was superior to the other models in predicting the presence of clinically significant prostate cancer at initial biopsy; potentially reduces the number of unnecessary biopsy while missing few significant cancers. Being a positive/negative test it avoids defining a cutoff value which may differ between populations. Multicenter studies to validate this method are warrented.

[Renal tumors percutaneous ablation by microwave. Initial experience.]
CONCLUSION: Percutaneous ablation of renal tumors seems to be a safe and effective technique, either via transpulmonary, transperitoneal or retroperitoneal approach, depending on tumor location. KEY POINTS: • Microwave ablation produces coagulation necrosis. • The sink effect is smaller in microwave ablation. • Microwave ablation seems to be safe and effective. • The type of approach is not correlated with major complications (Clavien> o =II).

[Testicular Cancer Epidemiology in Developing Countries. Review of the literature.]
CONCLUSIONS: A rise in the incidence of TC has been seen globally, this trend mainly in developing countries. In Colombia most studies are crossectional studies. By seeing the epidemiological data from some departments and the lack of specialists in those regions, it can be deduced the existence of an underreport of the disease that reveals the need to improve both surveillance systems and information registration, such as policies to achieve early diagnosis of TC.

CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy is an adequate strategy that restores anatomy in POP, mainly apical, and function with minimal invasion. Technical development and better knowledge of the female pelvis functional anatomy is enabling today a more precise understanding of its physiopathology, so it facilitates the design of site-specific operations. Various surgical approaches and techniques are offered depending on the defect, where combined procedures give good solutions. It is necessary to have an appropriate surgical training to obtain the better competence, and a safe and correct repair. PMID: 28530619 [PubM...

[Laparoscopic ureteral reimplantation.]
Authors: González Rodríguez I, Gil Ugarteburu R, Fernández-Pello Montes S, Díaz Méndez B, Blanco Fernández R, Mosquera Madera J Abstract Although the laparoscopic ureteral reimplantation (LUR) has a history of over 20 years, its presence in the literature is relatively sparse, almost always in the form of small case series with low statistical power, which has prevented consistent results. It has proven to be a safe and effective technique, improving the safety profile and perioperative complications compared to open ureteral reimplantation (OUR). The few long-term results ...

[Laparoscopic ureteral reimplantation in the treatment of urinary tract complications after renal transplantation.]
CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic surgery has evolved much allowing the performance on techniques that we could not think of years ago. Renal transplant patients present frequent postoperative complications, so they benefit of minimally invasive surgery such as endoscopy or laparoscopy. The Lich-Gregoire laparoscopic reimplantation in transplant patients is reproducible in Centers with experience both in laparoscopic surgery and transplantation.

[Laparoscopic uretero-ureterostomy for iatrogenic lesions of the distal ur ├ęter.]
We describe the technique for the repair of distal ureter lesions that preserves both anatomy and function of the urinary tract (1). The operation consists in dissection and extraction of the distal ureteral stump from its intramural tract to get at least 1 cm of free ureter, percutaneous insertion of a ureteral stent, checking the absence of tension between proximal ureter and distal dissected stump, end to end anastomosis and reinsertion of the distal ureter in the previously dissected bladder muscle layer. We present 4 cases of ureteral injury after laparoscopic simple total hysterectomy for uterine myomas with complete...

Obesity and kidney disease: Hidden consequences of the epidemic.
Authors: Kovesdy CP, Furth S, Zoccali C Abstract Obesity has become a worldwide epidemic, and its prevalence has been projected to grow by 40% in the next decade. This increasing prevalence has implications for the risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and also for Chronic Kidney Disease. A high body mass index is one of the strongest risk factors for new-onset Chronic Kidney Disease. In individuals affected by obesity, a compensatory hyperfiltration occurs to meet the heightened metabolic demands of the increased body weight. The increase in intraglomerular pressure can damage the kidneys and raise the risk of ...
