Laparoscopic pyeloplasty practice patterns in Canada.

Can Urol Assoc J 2019 Jan 21. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, The Ottawa Hospital and University of Ottawa, Ottawa, ON, Canada.

Introduction: Ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) is a condition characterized by partial or complete obstruction of urine transport from the renal pelvis to the ureter and can present with intermittent flank pain, recurrent urinary tract infections, renal stones, or renal dysfunction. While historically, open pyeloplasty was the gold standard for surgical management, laparoscopic methods to repair UPJO have largely taken over as the preferred approach for adolescent and adult patients. Despite near universal adoption of laparoscopic pyeloplasty among Canadian urologists, it remains a technically complex procedure and considerable variability exists in the procedural steps performed.

Endometrial Regeneration in Asherman's Syndrome: Clinical and Translational evidence of Stem Cell Therapies.

Curr Stem Cell Res Ther 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics, Geneva University Hospital, 30, bvd de la Cluse, 1205, Genève. Switzerland.

Asherman's Syndrome or Intrauterine adhesions is an acquired uterine condition where fibrous scarring forms within the uterine cavity, resulting in reduced menstrual flow, pelvic pain and infertility. Until recently, the molecular mechanisms leading to the formation of fibrosis were poorly understood, and the treatment of Asherman's syndrome has largely focused on hysteroscopic resection of adhesions, hormonal therapy, and physical barriers. Numerous studies have begun exploring the molecular mechanisms behind the fibrotic process underlying Asherman's Syndrome as well as the role of stem cells in the regeneration of the endometrium as a treatment modality.

Laboratory of Reproductive Biology, The Juliane Marie Centre for Women, Children and Reproduction, University Hospital of Copenhagen, Faculty of Health Science, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Introduction: Young women with a cancer diagnosis often have very little time to decide whether or not to commence on fertility preserving strategies before initiating potentially sterilizing cancer treatment. Minimizing the interval from opting for fertility preservation to completion of the procedure will reduce the potential risk of delaying cancer treatment. In the current study, we have evaluated the period of time from referral to ovarian tissue cryopreservation (OTC) to actual freezing of the tissue in a cohort of Danish women. Read More

A Preoperative Workup of a "Hip-Spine" Total Hip Arthroplasty Patient: A Simplified Approach to a Complex Problem.

J Arthroplasty 2019 Jan 18. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

Adult Reconstruction and Joint Replacement Service, Hospital for Special Surgery, New York, NY.

Background: A large body of evidence has confirmed that patients with spinal deformity, lumbar fusion, and abnormal spinopelvic mobility are at significantly increased risk for instability, dislocation, and revision after total hip arthroplasty (THA).

Methods: Achieving a stable construct in patients with pre-existing spine disease requires an understanding of basic spinopelvic parameters and the compensatory mechanisms associated with abnormal spinopelvic motion. Indicated patients with concomitant hip-spine pathology should be assessed for (1) the presence of spinal deformity and (2) the presence of spinal stiffness before undergoing THA. Read More
