Intraperitoneal Urinary Bladder Rupture as a Cause of Pneumoperitoneum.

Am Surg 2021 Jun 10:31348211025765. Epub 2021 Jun 10.

Division of Trauma Surgery and Critical Care, Jai Prakash Narayan Apex Trauma Centre, 28730All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, India.

The most common cause of pneumoperitoneum in trauma patients is hollow viscus injury; however, in patients with pneumoperitoneum on imaging and normal hollow viscus during the laparotomy, other rare causes of pneumoperitoneum like intraperitoneal urinary bladder rupture should be ruled out. Urinary bladder can rupture either extraperitoneally or intraperitoneally or both. Rupture of the urinary bladder is commonly seen in patients with abdominal trauma; however, pneumoperitoneum is usually not seen in patients with traumatic bladder rupture. Read More

Clinical experience with near-infrared ray catheter, a fluorescent ureteral catheter, on laparoscopic surgery for colon diverticulitis: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 May;100(21):e26085

Department of General and Gastroenterological Surgery.

Rationale: As the world's population ages, the number of surgical cases of colovesical fistulas secondary to colon diverticulitis is also expected to increase. The key issue while performing laparoscopic surgery for these fistulas is the avoidance of iatrogenic ureteral injury. There are no reports of Near-infrared Ray Catheter being used in surgery for diverticulitis, which is one of the diseases with the highest risk of ureteral injury. Read More

[Features of surgical treatment of urinary incontinence in women with urethral destruction].

Urologiia 2021 May(2):86-89

Novosibirsk Research Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics n.a. Ya.L. Tsivyan, Novosibirsk, Russia.

Urethral destruction in women is a rare pathology which is result of traumatic damage of the urethra during pelvic fractures, sexual trauma, iatrogenic effects (operative vaginal delivery, prolonged catheterization of the bladder, complicated surgical interventions on the urethra, etc.). The main symptom of urethral destruction is involuntary urinary incontinence. Read More

[Acute Traumatic Central Cord Syndrome: Etiology, Pathophysiology, Clinical Manifestation, and Treatment].

Praxis (Bern 1994) 2021 Apr;110(6):324-335

Klinik für Neurochirurgie, Kantonsspital St. Gallen, St. Gallen.

Acute Traumatic Central Cord Syndrome: Etiology, Pathophysiology, Clinical Manifestation, and Treatment The acute traumatic central cord syndrome (ATCCS) represents an injury to the spinal cord with disproportionately greater motor impairment of the upper than the lower extremities, with bladder dysfunction and with varying degrees of sensory loss below the level of the respective lesion. The mechanism of ATCCS is most commonly a traumatic hyperextension injury of the cervical spine at the base of an underlying spondylosis and spinal stenosis. The mean age is 53 years, and segments C4 to Th1 are most frequently affected. Read More

Urine leak after robotic radical prostatectomy: not all urine leaks come from the anastomosis.

J Robot Surg 2021 Apr 24. Epub 2021 Apr 24.

USC Institute of Urology, University of Southern California, 1441 Eastlake Ave., Suite 7416, Los Angeles, CA, 90089-9178, USA.

Radical prostatectomy is the gold standard in patients that are surgical candidates with localized prostate cancer. While most postoperative urine leaks are from vesico-urethral anastomosis, urologists must be aware that a small percentage of patients may have a urine leak from other sites that may have been inadvertently injured during the procedure. We propose a systematic workup to evaluate the source of the urinary leak as well as appropriate management of such injuries. Read More

Acromegaly presenting with myelopathy due to ossification of posterior longitudinal ligament: a case report.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2021 Apr 14;22(1):353. Epub 2021 Apr 14.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Toho University Omori Medical Center, 6-11-1, Omori-Nishi, Ota-Ku, Tokyo, 143-8541, Japan.

Background: Acromegaly is a rare disease caused by high serum levels of growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), often originating from a pituitary adenoma. Spinal and peripheral joint abnormalities are caused by these hormonal hypersecretions. In particular, the response to GH is involved in the onset of ossification of the spinal ligament in vitro, especially ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL). Read More

Management of urological trauma associated with pelvic fractures.

Br J Hosp Med (Lond) 2021 Jan 18;82(1):1-9. Epub 2021 Jan 18.

Department of Urology, Frimley Park Hospital, Frimley, Surrey, UK.

Urological trauma is frequently encountered in patients with high energy pelvic fractures and can have debilitating long-term sequelae for patients without appropriate multidisciplinary management. Anterior pelvic ring disruption causes a high incidence of bladder rupture and urethral injuries, and initial assessment requires urological tract imaging and emergent bladder drainage before subsequent surgical repair. Pelvic ring disruption requires urgent fixation and should be managed as an open fracture in the context of significant bladder and urethral injury with urinary leakage. Read More

[A review of adaptive radiotherapy for bladder cancer].

Cancer Radiother 2021 May 2;25(3):271-278. Epub 2021 Jan 2.

Département de radiothérapie, Institut Bergonié, 229, cours de l'Argonne, 33076 Bordeaux cedex, France. Electronic address:

Purpose: Radiation therapy (RT) for muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) is challenging, with observed variations in bladder shape and size resulting in inappropriate coverage of the target volumes (CTV). Large margins were historically applied around the CTV, increasing the dose delivered to organs at risk (OAR). With repositioning imaging and visualization of soft tissues during image guided RT, an opportunity to consider these movements and deformations appeared possible with an adaptive RT approach (ART).

Degenerative Cervical Myelopathy: Recognition and Management.

Am Fam Physician 2020 12;102(12):740-750

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine, Chapel Hill, NC, USA.

Degenerative cervical myelopathy encompasses a collection of pathologic conditions that result in progressive spinal cord dysfunction secondary to cord compression. Patients are typically male (3: 1 male-to-female ratio), and the average age of presentation is 64 years. The exact incidence is unclear because of differences in terminology and because radiographic findings can be present in asymptomatic individuals. Read More

Prostatic Artery Embolization in Refractory Hematuria of Prostatic Origin.

Tech Vasc Interv Radiol 2020 Sep 6;23(3):100694. Epub 2020 Oct 6.

Department of Interventional Radiology, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, FL.

Hematuria of prostatic origin has multiple etiologies including benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), iatrogenic urological trauma, prostate cancer, and radiation therapy. Hematuria secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia can occur because of the increased vascularity of the primary gland, itself, or because of the vascular re-growth following a transurethral resection of the prostate. Prostatic hematuria usually resolves with conservative measures; however, refractory hematuria of prostatic origin may require hospitalization with treatment with blood transfusions, repeated indwelling urinary catheterization, and continuous bladder irrigation.

Standardized protocol for voiding cystourethrogram: Are recommendations being followed?

J Pediatr Urol 2021 02 14;17(1):66.e1-66.e6. Epub 2020 Oct 14.

Department of Urology, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) images the urethra and bladder during filling and emptying, as well as ureters and kidneys when vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is present, providing detailed information about both anatomical and functional status of the urinary tract. Given the importance of information obtained, and the varying quality depending on VCUG technique and radiology reporting, the American Academy of Pediatrics Sections on Urology and Radiology published a joint standardized VCUG protocol in 2016.

Objective: We compared VCUG reports from multiple institutions before and after publication of the protocol to determine adherence to recommendations. Read More
