Management and therapeutic options for abdominal aortic aneurysm coexistent with horseshoe kidney.

J Vasc Surg 2018 Dec 24. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Department of Vascular Surgery, 401 General Military Hospital of Athens, Athens, Greece.

Background: Horseshoe kidney (HSK), referring to the abnormal fusion of the lower renal poles, represents one of the most common renal anomalies. One of its most significant features is the anomalous vasculature, with a number of accessory renal arteries originating from the aorta, the mesenteric arteries, and even the iliac arteries supplying both the renal kidneys and the renal isthmus.

Methods: A literature review was performed to identify and to present the most recent data regarding classification and imaging evaluation of HSK concomitant with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Read More

Systemic biopolymer-delivered vascular endothelial growth factor promotes therapeutic angiogenesis in experimental renovascular disease.

Kidney Int 2018 04 19;93(4):842-854. Epub 2017 Dec 19.

Department of Biochemistry, University of Mississippi Medical Center, Jackson, Mississippi, USA; Department of Neurology, University of Mississippi Medical Center, Jackson, Mississippi, USA.

We recently developed a therapeutic biopolymer composed of an elastin-like polypeptide (ELP) fused to vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and showed long-term renoprotective effects in experimental renovascular disease after a single intra-renal administration. Here, we sought to determine the specificity, safety, efficacy, and mechanisms of renoprotection of ELP-VEGF after systemic therapy in renovascular disease. We tested whether kidney selectivity of the ELP carrier would reduce off-target binding of VEGF in other organs. Read More

Regional Clinical Hospital, Yaroslavl, Russia.

L-shaped kidney refers to a rare anomaly of the relative kidney positioning. Due to low prevalence, the literature on the co-occurrence of this anomaly with malignancy is lacking. And, if the diagnosis of a renal anomaly does not present difficulties, if a tumor is detected in such a kidney, even MSCT does not always help differentiate a pelvic tumor from a tumor of the renal parenchyma spreading to the pelvicalyceal system.

A Novel Chimney Approach for Management of Horseshoe Kidney During EVAR.

EJVES Short Rep 2016 31;33:16-19. Epub 2016 Aug 31.

Section of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy, University of Chicago Medical Center, Chicago, IL, USA.

Introduction: Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) with coexisting horseshoe kidney (HSK) can be difficult to repair, with variable blood supply from the aorta and iliac/mesenteric vessels. Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) has become a popular, less invasive approach to aneurysm care, and a chimney approach to EVAR (ChEVAR) has expanded its use to more complex anatomy. It is mandatory to maintain adequate perfusion to the HSK and visceral branches as part of the treatment of an AAA. Read More

Role of magnetic resonance urography in pediatric renal fusion anomalies.

Pediatr Radiol 2017 Dec 24;47(13):1707-1720. Epub 2017 Aug 24.

Division of Body Imaging, Department of Radiology, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Renal fusion is on a spectrum of congenital abnormalities that occur due to disruption of the migration process of the embryonic kidneys from the pelvis to the retroperitoneal renal fossae. Clinically, renal fusion anomalies are often found incidentally and associated with increased risk for complications, such as urinary tract obstruction, infection and urolithiasis. These anomalies are most commonly imaged using ultrasound for anatomical definition and less frequently using renal scintigraphy to quantify differential renal function and assess urinary tract drainage.

Horseshoe kidney is the most common congenital renal fusion anomaly with an incidence of 1 in 400-600 individuals. The most common type is fusion at the lower poles seen in greater than 90% of the cases, with the rest depicting fusion at the upper poles, resulting in an inverted horseshoe kidney. Embryologically, there are two theories hypothesizing the genesis of horseshoe kidney - mechanical fusion theory and teratogenic event theory. Read More

"Lying-Down" Adrenal Sign: There Are Exceptions to the Rule Among Fetuses and Neonates.

J Ultrasound Med 2017 Dec 8;36(12):2599-2603. Epub 2017 Jul 8.

Department of Radiology, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, Tennessee USA; and Department of Radiology, LeBonheur Children's Hospital, Memphis, Tennessee, USA.

A linear-shaped or "lying-down" adrenal gland is a sign often seen with the absence of the kidney in the renal fossa due to renal agenesis, renal ectopia, or horseshoe kidney. It is theorized that the presence of the kidney in the normal location within the renal fossa is important for the formation of the normal triangular inverted V or Y adrenal shape. There are exceptions to this rule whereby a kidney is missing from the renal fossa, yet a normal adrenal shape is present. Read More

Semin Nucl Med 2017 05 6;47(3):204-228. Epub 2017 Mar 6.

Department of Radiology, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK. Electronic address:

In the context of ante-natally diagnosed hydronephrosis, the vast majority of children with a dilated renal pelvis do not need any surgical treatment, as the dilatation resolves spontaneously with time. Slow drainage demonstrated at Tc-99m-mercaptoacetyltriglycine (MAG3) renography does not necessarily mean obstruction. Obstruction is defined as resistance to urinary outflow with urinary stasis at the level of the pelvic-ureteric junction (PUJ) which, if left untreated, will damage the kidney. Read More

[Diagnosis and Therapeutic Management in Kidney, Ureter and Bladder Trauma].

Aktuelle Urol 2017 Feb 12;48(1):64-71. Epub 2017 Apr 12.

Urologische und Kinderurologische Klinik, Universitätsklinikum Erlangen.

Trauma refers to the destruction of tissues or organs by external forces and it is the most common cause of mortality and morbidity in children (1, 2). Injuries of the genitourinary tract may be the result of blunt (falls, sport injuries, motor vehicle accidents and sexual abuse) or penetrating (stab wounds, gun shots, falling onto sharp objects) injuries. The genitourinary tract is significantly injured in 2. Read More

Surgical management of urinary stones with abnormal kidney anatomy.

Kaohsiung J Med Sci 2017 Apr 1;33(4):207-211. Epub 2017 Mar 1.

Department of Urology, Koru Ankara Hospital, Ankara, Turkey.

In spite of the fact that urologic surgical techniques used by urologists are becoming more and more minimally invasive and easier because of developing technologies, surgical approaches for the urinary stones in kidneys with abnormal anatomy are still confusing. The objective of this article is to determine the treatment options in these kidneys. For this purpose, between 2005 and 2015, we retrospectively evaluated patients operated for urolithiasis with various congenital renal anomalies in five referral urology clinics in our country.

Bilateral duplex urinary collecting systems accompanied with horseshoe kidneys deformity and right renal ureteral calculi and hydronephrosis: Diagnosis in magnetic resonance urography.

J Xray Sci Technol 2017 Feb 21. Epub 2017 Feb 21.

Department of Urology, The Second Affiliated Hospital of Nanchang University, Nanchang City, Jiangxi Province, People's Republic of China.

Horseshoe kidney deformity with duplex urinary collecting systems is a rare congenital urinary tract defect. Clinically, it is very difficult to visually observe and examine the whole anatomic structure and information with the regular 2D diagnostic imaging tools. Here, we report a case in which a middle age patient has bilateral duplex urinary collecting systems and horseshoe kidney deformity accompanied with right renal ureteral calculi and hydronephrosis.

A rare case of ectopic ACTH syndrome originating from malignant renal paraganglioma.

Arch Endocrinol Metab 2017 May-Jun;61(3):291-295. Epub 2017 Feb 13.

Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Diskapi Teaching and Research Hospital, Irfan Bastug Caddesi, Ankara, Turkey.

Ectopic adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) syndrome is characterized by hypercortisolism due to the hypersecretion of a non-pituitary ACTH-secreting tumor leading to Cushing's syndrome. Only a few cases have been reported previously as causing ectopic ACTH related to paraganglioma. Herein, we present a case of Cushing's syndrome, in who was proved to be attributable to an ACTH-secreting renal malignant paraganglioma. Read More

The role of voiding cystourethrography in asymptomatic unilateral isolated ureteropelvic junction obstruction: A retrospective study.

J Pediatr Urol 2017 Apr 24;13(2):206.e1-206.e7. Epub 2016 Nov 24.

Division of Pediatric Urology, Aboul-Riche Children's Hospital, Cairo University, Cairo, Egypt.

Introduction: The presence of concomitant vesicoureteric reflux (VUR) and ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) is uncommon. Nevertheless, the reported VUR coexisting with asymptomatic unilateral isolated hydronephrosis (AUIH) requiring pyeloplasty for correction of UPJO was of low grade and mostly resolved during conservative follow-up. Therefore, VCUG may be not indicated in these children except if voiding symptoms, urinary tract infection (UTI), dilated ureters, or bladder and ureteric abnormalities are suspected. Read More

Bladder agenesis, ectopic ureters and a multicystic dysplastic horseshoe kidney in one twin newborn with normal amniotic fluid index in utero.

BMJ Case Rep 2016 Dec 8;2016. Epub 2016 Dec 8.

Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee, USA.

A monochorionic-diamniotic twin baby presented with intrauterine growth restriction and anuria. The baby was found to have bladder agenesis, a pelvic dysplastic horseshoe kidney, vertebral anomalies, a ventricular septal defect and facial dysmorphisms. It was surprising to find no abnormalities in amniotic fluid indices prenatally, suggesting the possibility of urine output that declined as the pregnancy proceeded. Read More

Congenital Renal Fusion and Ectopia in the Trauma Patient.

Case Rep Emerg Med 2016 8;2016:5203872. Epub 2016 Nov 8.

Division of Acute Care Surgery and Trauma, Memorial Regional Hospital, 3501 Johnson Street, Hollywood, FL 33021, USA.

We present two separate cases of young male patients with congenital kidney anomalies (horseshoe and crossed fused renal ectopia) identified following blunt abdominal trauma. Despite being rare, ectopic and fusion anomalies of the kidneys are occasionally noted in a trauma patient during imaging or upon exploration of the abdomen. Incidental renal findings may influence the management of traumatic injuries to preserve and protect the patient's renal function. Read More

18F-FDG PET/CT in Renal Infections: Evidence of Acute Pyelonephritis in a Horseshoe Kidney.

Clin Nucl Med 2017 Feb;42(2):112-113

From the Service de Médecine Nucléaire et Imagerie Fonctionnelle, Hôpital Salengro, Lille, France.

A 58-year-old paraplegic patient was prescribed F-FDG for persistent inflammatory syndrome after aortic surgery for dissection. The examination was performed on a Siemens mCT Flow PET/CT and shows a moderate prostate uptake, related to prostatitis on self-catheterization and a focal renal cortical hypermetabolism of the left medial midpole of a horseshoe kidney, which corresponds to renal parenchyma on the CT, and suggests pyelonephritis, confirmed by Tc-DMSA SPECT/CT.
