Population-based trend analysis of voiding cystourethrogram ordering practices in a single-payer healthcare system before and after the release of evaluation guidelines.

J Pediatr Urol 2019 Jan 3. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Division of Urology, The Hospital for Sick Children and Department of Surgery, University of Toronto, Canada. Electronic address:

Introduction: While voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) is a widely-accepted test, it is invasive and associated with radiation exposure. Most cases of primary vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) are low-grade and unlikely to be associated with acquired renal scarring. To select patients at greatest risk, in 2011 the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) published guidelines for evaluation of children ages 2 - 24 months with urinary tract infections (UTIs).

The clinical significance of an incidentally detected open internal inguinal ring.

J Pediatr Urol 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Agios Loukas Hospital, Panorama, Thessaloniki, Greece.

Introduction And Objective: An open internal inguinal ring (IIR) may be discovered incidentally either in the context of correcting pathology involving the contralateral side or at the time of surgical exploration for reasons unrelated to a patent processus vaginalis (PPV). The aim of this study is to determine the evolution of an incidentally encountered open IIR in patients undergoing laparoscopy for reasons not associated with unilateral inguinal hernia or cryptorchidism.

Materials And Methods: The authors conducted a prospective study of all patients who underwent laparoscopic surgery in the department of pediatric surgery at Agios Loukas hospital between 2004 and 2013 for various indications. Read More

Do repeat ultrasounds affect orchiectomy rate in patients with testicular torsion treated at a pediatric institution?

J Pediatr Urol 2018 Dec 21. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

Surgical Outcomes Center for Kids, Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, 2200 Children's Way Nashville, TN 37232, USA; Division of Pediatric Urology, Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, 2200 Children's Way, Suite 4102, Nashville, TN 37232-9820, USA.

Introduction: Testicular torsion is a urological emergency; as the testicular salvage rate decreases with time, prompt intervention is required to restore the blood flow. Interhospital transfers and ultrasound examinations, while clinically essential to proper treatment and diagnosis, may adversely affect outcomes by delaying surgical intervention. Patients transferred to another institution for treatment of testicular torsion may experience a further time delay by undergoing two ultrasound examinations: one at the initial admitting institution and one at the receiving institution.

Videolaparoscopic lower pole heminephrectomy for treatment of a duplex kidney.

J Pediatr Urol 2018 Nov 22. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Pediatric Urology Department, Fundació Puigvert, Barcelona, Spain. Electronic address:

Introduction: In a duplicated renal collecting system, or duplex kidney, the most frequent pathology presenting at the lower pole is the vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), which could lead to urinary tract infections (UTI) or even renal dysplasia. Under some circumstances, such as recurrent UTIs or impaired kidney function, heminephrectomy of the pathologic moiety is indicated. However, there are only few academic videos of laparoscopic lower pole heminephrectomy in the pediatric population available in literature. Read More

The search for the definition, etiology, and effective diagnosis of upper urinary tract obstruction: the Whitaker test then and now.

J Pediatr Urol 2018 Nov 22. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Anatomy Lecturer, Selwyn College, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK.

Introduction: Robert Whitaker, inspired by Dr William W Scott at the Brady Institute at Johns Hopkins and by Sir David Innes Williams at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in the late 1960s, spent much of his career exploring the meaning of persistent dilatation of the upper urinary tract, in an attempt to define obstruction and to find a means of diagnosing it accurately.

Objective: This is a historical review of Bob Whitaker's journey from his definition of obstruction to the inception of his eponymous test.

Results: In 1975, he proposed a theory to explain the pathophysiology behind obstructive hydronephrosis and megaureter. Read More

J Pediatr Urol 2018 Nov 10. Epub 2018 Nov 10.

Faculty of Medicine, Ahvaz Jundishapur University of Medical Sciences, Ahvaz, Iran.

Background: Hematuria, either macroscopic or microscopic, is an incidental finding of multiple nephrologic or urologic disorders. Disturbances of urine inhibitors or promotors have been suggested as the potential causes of isolated idiopathic hematuria in children and its recurrence. Meanwhile, appropriate treatment of these risk factors might improve secondary asymptomatic or macroscopic hematuria. Read More
