Robotic-Assisted Partial Nephrectomy and Adrenalectomy: Case of a Pheochromocytoma Invading into Renal Parenchyma.

Case Rep Urol 2020 19;2020:7321015. Epub 2020 Jun 19.

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

Although upper pole renal masses and adrenal masses can usually be distinguished on cross-sectional imaging, large masses can obscure the boundaries between the kidney and adrenal gland. We describe a unique case of an adrenal pheochromocytoma in a 42-year-old female who was referred for robotic partial nephrectomy. During the procedure, the patient developed severe hypertension.

Extensive Prostatic Abscess in an Elderly Patient Requiring Multidisciplinary Drainage.

Case Rep Urol 2020 6;2020:4398561. Epub 2020 Jun 6.

Olive-View UCLA Medical Center, Veterans Association Greater Los Angeles, David Geffen School of Medicine, Los Angeles, USA.

Prostatic abscess is rare and mainly affects immunocompromised individuals, classically presenting with both systemic and lower urinary tract symptoms. Our case is unique as the patient presented with an exceptionally long duration of symptoms prior to seeing a health-care provider, had no systemic symptoms, and was managed via a multidisciplinary approach. We present a case of a 70-year-old man with type-two diabetes who endured two months of lower urinary tract symptoms and constipation without systemic symptoms prior to seeking medical attention.

Case Rep Urol 2020 7;2020:2091915. Epub 2020 Apr 7.

Department of Urology, Military Hospital of First Instruction of Tunis, University of Tunis El Manar, Tunisia.

Intrauterine devices are a popular form of reversible contraception among women. Its administration can lead to some uncommon but serious complications such as perforation leading to its migration into adjacent organs. Like any foreign body, the presence of an IUD in the bladder can result in stone formation due to its lithogenic potential. Read More

Exceptional Response of Metastatic Chromophobe Renal Cell Carcinoma to Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) Inhibitors: Should Increased VEGF-C Expression Be Used to Guide Treatment?

Case Rep Urol 2019 28;2019:2479823. Epub 2019 Dec 28.

Spectrum Health, Grand Rapids, MI, USA.

There is sparse literature demonstrating effective treatments for metastatic chromophobe renal cell carcinoma (ChRCC). The tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) sunitinib selectively inhibits the VEGF pathway and it is a standard care for metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC), although data supporting its use in ChRCC is much more limited. A 56-year-old underwent palliative nephrectomy for locally-advanced ChRCC with sarcomatoid differentiation. Read More

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy as a Complementary Alternative for Chronic Pelvic Pain Management in an Interstitial Cystitis/Bladder Pain Syndrome Patient.

Case Rep Urol 2019 26;2019:5767568. Epub 2019 Dec 26.

Department of Urology, Wake Forest Baptist Health, USA.

Interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome is a chronic pelvic pain condition with no known etiology that affects millions of women and men in the United States. Current management can be aggressive for individuals who are refractory to less invasive options, often resulting in the use of opioid narcotics and/or surgical procedures under general anesthesia, with higher risks and side effects to patients. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy is a noninvasive therapeutic strategy that is thought to reduce inflammation and pain via alteration of cellular function and microcirculation. Read More

2nd Department of Urology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece.

Introduction: Solid, fat-containing tumors of the testes are extremely rare with only a few cases having been reported so far, contrary to the more frequent occurrence of paratesticular lipomatosis. Testicular angiomyolipomas and gonadal involvement in Cowden's disease, although infrequently occurring, are known examples of fat-bearing testicular lesions. Hereby, we present an extremely rare case of intratesticular angiolipoma. Read More

Use of SPY Elite Fluorescence Imaging in Creation of a Continent Urinary Diversion.

Case Rep Urol 2019 9;2019:9069841. Epub 2019 Dec 9.

Department of Urology, West Virginia University, Morgantown, WV 26505, USA.

The use of SPY Elite Fluorescence Imaging has recently grown popular among multiple surgical specialties, including colorectal, plastic, endocrine, ophthalmologic, and vascular surgery, due to its ability to quickly and accurately assess tissue perfusion and guide intraoperative decision making. To our knowledge, the use of SPY imaging in urologic reconstructive surgery has yet to be reported. We present a case in which SPY imaging was used intraoperatively to assess perfusion of an ileocecal anastomosis and a segment of bowel prior to creation of a continent urinary diversion following radical cystectomy.

Case Rep Urol 2019 3;2019:2815748. Epub 2019 Nov 3.

Department of Surgery, Cape Coast Teaching Hospital, Cape Coast, Ghana.

Retrocaval ureter (RCU) is a rare congenital anomaly in which the ureter passes posterior to the inferior vena cava (IVC). A little over 200 cases have been reported worldwide since Hochstetter's first report in 1893. We present two cases of retrocaval ureter which were successfully managed at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital in Ghana. Read More

Ureteral Guidewire Looping and Entrapment above an Impacted Ureter Stone.

Case Rep Urol 2019 17;2019:4103523. Epub 2019 Oct 17.

1st Department of Urology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Ethnikis Aminis 41, 54635 Thessaloniki, Greece.

We present a rare case of a hydrophilic guidewire looping and entrapment in the ureter of a patient with an impacted stone in the proximal ureter during a simple double-J stent insertion. Looping of guidewire is a rare complication in urology and only few cases have been described. In that case, release and removal of the entrapped guidewire was possible only after one step fragmentation of the stone with laser lithotripsy. Read More

Unusual Suspect: A Case Report of Tubulocystic Renal Cell Carcinoma with Features of Cystic Renal Oncocytoma.

Case Rep Urol 2019 5;2019:2919686. Epub 2019 Aug 5.

Department of Urology, Fort Belvoir Army Medical Center, 9300 DeWitt Loop, Fort Belvoir, VA, USA.

Tubulocystic renal cell carcinoma is an uncommon subtype of renal cell carcinoma that was only recently acknowledged by the World Health Organization. There is a relatively small collection of literature dedicated to the features and clinical course of this lesion. Despite its rarity, this diagnosis should remain in the differential for all cystic renal masses. Read More

Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, Al Wakra Hospital, Hamad Medical Corporation, Doha, Qatar.

Recurrent testicular torsion after previous orchiopexy is rare and needs high index of suspension to avoid misdiagnosis and delayed management. This case showed that this diagnosis can occur even when the testis is still fixed to the scrotal wall. A 31-year-old male who had previous testicular fixation for testicular torsion with a single stitch to the lower pole before 6 years presented with recurrent testicular torsion and missed diagnosis.

Pyelolithotomy in a Patient with Complete Coraliform Calcification Induced by a Double-J Ureteral Stent.

Case Rep Urol 2019 28;2019:6957141. Epub 2019 May 28.

Urology Sector, São José do Rio Preto School of Medicine (Famerp), SP, Brazil.

The placement of a double-J ureteral stent enables the treatment of upper urinary tract obstruction. Despite advances, forgetting the stent favors the occurrence of calcification, leading to increased morbidity rates, lawsuits, and a financial burden on the healthcare system. This paper describes a successful pyelolithotomy for the removal of a calcified double-J ureteral stent. Read More
