Objectives: To analyze outcomes of cases in which we adapted a transvesical ureterectomy technique to remove the distal ureter, including complete removal of the bladder cuff, upon retroperitoneal nephroureterectomy (performed when the diseased native kidney and ureter are ipsilateral to the transplant kidney).
Methods: Nineteen cases of upper urinary tract urothelial carcinoma of the native kidney were diagnosed among the 520 kidney transplant recipients at our kidney transplantation clinic over the last 19 years. Of these 19 patients, 11 had urothelial carcinoma of the native kidney ipsilateral to the transplant kidney. Read More

Objective: To evaluate the indications and outcomes after partial nephrectomy and renal autotransplantation for urothelial cancer in solitary kidneys, with special attention to the ease of endoscopic tumour control after pyelovesicostomy.
Patients And Methods: In all, 978 records of three institutions were reviewed for patients undergoing partial nephrectomy between January 1990 and December 2000. Ex vivo organ-preserving surgery was used in selected patients with a solitary kidney and localized pelvic or calyceal tumour. Read More

Objectives: To evaluate the utility of the porcine and canine models for collecting system closure after partial nephrectomy involving violation of the renal collecting system. Advanced surgical technologies and novel techniques for performing laparoscopic partial nephrectomy are frequently evaluated in an animal model.
Methods: After evaluation of the upper urinary tract with retrograde pyelography, laparoscopic partial nephrectomy, including violation of the renal collecting system, was performed in 8 domestic pigs (group 1) and 2 dogs (group 2) with documented normal upper urinary tract physiology. Read More

Objectives: To evaluate the efficacy of laparoscopic nephrectomy with autotransplantation in cases of severe proximal ureteral damage. Many patients with complex proximal ureteral injuries have good functional renal parenchyma and wish to salvage their kidney. Autotransplantation is a viable alternative to nephrectomy in these frustrating situations. Read More
