E Merlini P Spina

J Pediatr Urol 2005 Dec 5;1(6):409-17. Epub 2005 Jul 5.

Department of Paediatric Surgery, Ospedale Maggiore della Carità Hospital, Corso Mazzini 18, 28100 Novara, Italy.

Megaureters may be primary or secondary, and the dilatation may be due to obstruction or reflux, or both or neither. The cause of primary obstructed megaureter is the aperistaltic and narrowed pre-vesical portion of the ureter. The inner sheath of the terminal ureter generally shows a reduced amount of longitudinal smooth muscle bundles and an increased amount of collagen. Read More

[Is effective the initial management of primary nonrefluxing megaureter with double-J stent?].

Cir Pediatr 2008 Jan;21(1):32-6

Sección de Urología, Servicio de Cirugía Pediátrica, Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre, Madrid.

Background: Initial management of patients with primary nonrefluxing megaureter (PNRM) associated with impaired renal function or with high risk rate of decreased kidney function can be a dilemma. We present our experience in the use of double -J stent in these patients to evaluate the role as a method to decompressing the system, to prevent function loss or to temporize surgical treatment.

Methods: In the period 1996-2006 27 patients were diagnosed of PNRM. Read More

Antegrade MDCT pyelography for the evaluation of patients with obstructed urinary tract.

AJR Am J Roentgenol 2004 Dec;183(6):1691-6

Department of Diagnostic Imaging, Rambam Medical Center, PO Box 9602, Haifa 31096, Israel.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to design an alternative imaging technique to CT urography in patients with high-grade urinary tract obstruction, with or without impaired renal function, that uses the superior resolution of MDCT and avoids IV contrast material administration.

Conclusion: Antegrade MDCT pyelography is an alternative imaging technique to CT urography in patients with high-grade urinary tract obstruction with or without impaired renal function. It enables accurate diagnosis of the level of obstruction, as well as its etiology, including nephroureterolithiasis, urothelial tumors, primary congenital megaureter, uretero-pelvic junction stenosis, ureteral edema, ureteral stricture, retroperitoneal fibrosis, and pelvic lymphadenopathy.

Anomalies of the distal ureter, bladder, and urethra in children: embryologic, radiologic, and pathologic features.

Radiographics 2002 Sep-Oct;22(5):1139-64

Department of Pediatric Radiology, Hospital Infantil La Paz, Paseo de la Castellana 261, Madrid 28046, Spain.

Congenital anomalies of the lower urinary tract are a significant cause of morbidity in infancy. Radiologic investigation is an important source of clinical information in lower urinary tract disorders but should not inconvenience the patient, expose the patient to unnecessary radiation, or delay surgical correction. In pediatric patients with suspected underlying urologic structural anomalies, screening ultrasonography is commonly the initial diagnostic study. Read More
