Experience of one single surgeon with the first 500 robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy cases in mainland China.

Asian J Urol 2020 Apr 23;7(2):170-176. Epub 2019 Dec 23.

Department of Urology, Changhai Hospital, Second Military Medical University, Shanghai, China.

Percutaneous nephrolithotomy for staghorn calculi: Troubleshooting and managing complications.

Asian J Urol 2020 Apr 19;7(2):139-148. Epub 2019 Oct 19.

Department of Urology, University of California, Oakland, CA, USA.

Staghorn calculi comprise a unique subset of complex kidney stone disease. Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is the gold standard treatment for staghorn stones. Despite continuous refinements to the technique and instrumentation of PCNL, these stones remain a troublesome challenge for endourologists and are associated with a higher rate of perioperative complications than that for non-staghorn stones.

Management of staghorn stones in special situations.

Asian J Urol 2020 Apr 30;7(2):130-138. Epub 2019 Dec 30.

Department of Urology, Changhai Hospital, Second Military Medical University, Shanghai, China.

Staghorn stones have always been a challenge for urologists, especially in some special situations, such as horseshoe kidney, ectopic kidney, paediatric kidney, and solitary kidney. The treatment of these staghorn stones must be aggressive because they can lead to renal function loss and serious complications. The gold-standard management for staghorn stones is surgical treatment with the aim of clearing the stones and preserving renal function. Read More

Definition, treatment and outcome of residual fragments in staghorn stones.

Asian J Urol 2020 Apr 31;7(2):116-121. Epub 2019 Dec 31.

Istanbul Medipol University, School of Medicine, Department of Urology, Istanbul, Turkey.

Technological advances in minimally invasive treatment of stone disease and its integration with concomitant clinical practice are amongst the most important achievements in urology. Despite the wealth of information accumulated over the years and the richness of existing literature, the knowledge about the definition, treatment and outcomes of residual stone fragments after percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL) is still insufficient. Due to the high stone load a lot of patients with staghorn stones have residual fragments (RFs) after treatment with PNL, which depends on the size of tract, definition of stone free rate (SFR), timing of evaluation and the imaging used.

Contemporary role of multi-tract percutaneous nephrolithotomy in the treatment of complex renal calculi.

Asian J Urol 2020 Apr 28;7(2):102-109. Epub 2019 Dec 28.

Department of Urology, Muljhibhai Patel Urological Hospital, Nadiad, Gujarat, India.

Complex renal calculi remain to be a challenge for the treating urologist due to sheer bulk and the technicalities involved. Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) remains the treatment modality of choice in dealing with these large and complex stones. The limiting factor in their treatment continues to be the need for using additional tracts or the use of flexible nephroscopy for complete stone clearance. Read More

Multitract percutaneous nephrolithotomy in staghorn calculus.

Asian J Urol 2020 Apr 8;7(2):94-101. Epub 2019 Oct 8.

Department of Urology, Muljibhai Patel Urological Hospital, Nadiad, India.

Staghorn calculi are branched stones which occupy a majority portion of the pelvicaliceal system. An untreated staghorn calculus over time can damage the kidney and deteriorate its function and/or cause life threatening sepsis. Total stone clearance is an important goal in order to eradicate any infective focus, relieve obstruction, prevent recurrence and preserve the kidney function. Read More

Department of Urology, Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, Winston-Salem, NC, USA.

Objective: Staghorn calculi present a particular and challenging entity of stone morphology.

Morphometry scores: Clinical implications in the management of staghorn calculi.

Asian J Urol 2020 Apr 12;7(2):78-86. Epub 2019 Jun 12.

Department of Urology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY, USA.

Due to their large size, rapid growth, and attendant morbidity, staghorn calculi are complex clinical entities that impose significant treatment-related challenges. Moreover, their relative heterogeneity-in terms of both total stone burden and anatomic distribution-limits the ability to standardize their characterization and the reporting of surgical outcomes. Several morphometry systems currently exist to define the volumetric distribution of renal stones, in general, and to predict the outcomes of percutaneous nephrolithotomy; however, they fall short in their applicability to staghorn stones.

Asian J Urol 2020 Jan 21;7(1):64-67. Epub 2018 Jun 21.

Department of Urology, First People's Hospital of Xiaoshan, Hangzhou, China.

Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is an effective and well accepted procedure for the treatment of large and complex renal calculi. We encountered a patient with a misplaced percutaneous nephrostomy drainage tube (PNDT) into the contralateral renal vein resulting thrombus formation after undergoing right side PCNL. We placed a temporary filter to prevent embolism and started anti-coagulation therapy immediately and finally the PNDT was removed without bleeding. Read More

Department of Urology, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA, USA.

Objective: We used population-based data to examine the possible benefit of extended lymphadenectomy for patients with renal malignancy in the setting of more advanced disease.

Methods: The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database was utilized to identify non-metastatic, T3-T4 renal cancer patients from 2004-2015 treated with removal of ≥1 lymph node at the time of nephrectomy. Non-parametric bivariate statistics were used to assess associations between covariates of interest and extended lymphadenectomy (≥10 lymph nodes removed). Read More

Department of Urology, Smith Institute for Urology, Northwell Health, New Hyde Park, NY, USA.

During the past 3 decades, radiation exposure (RE) has increased drastically among patients undergoing percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), thus potentially causing new cases of cancer each year. The effective dose received by patients comes from pre- and post-operative computed tomography (CT) and intraoperative fluoroscopy (FL). We reviewed literature to find novel techniques and approaches that help to decrease RE of patients and personnel. Read More
