Urinothorax: A Rare Cause of Pleural Effusion.

Cureus 2022 May 27;14(5):e25392. Epub 2022 May 27.

Internal Medicine, Bassett Healthcare Network, Cooperstown, USA.

Urinothorax is a rare cause of pleural effusion, which is seen in patients with obstructive uropathy, blunt trauma, or ureteric injury during abdominal surgical procedures. Clinical symptoms may include dyspnea, chest pain, cough, fever, abdominal pain, and decreased urine output. Diagnosis is made by thoracentesis, which would reveal fluid with a urine-like odor, and pleural fluid analysis, which would show if fluid is transudative in nature with a pH lower than 7. Read More

Efficacy of Shexiang Tongxin Dropping Pills in a Swine Model of Coronary Slow Flow.

Front Physiol 2022 14;13:913399. Epub 2022 Jun 14.

Department of Cardiology, Wuhan Fourth Hospital, Puai Hospital, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China.

Preliminary clinical studies have confirmed that Shexiang Tongxin dropping pills (STDPs) could improve angina pectoris and attenuate vascular endothelial dysfunction in patients with slow coronary flow, but the underlying mechanism is not fully unclear.

Clinical predictors for nondiabetic kidney diseases in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus: a retrospective study from 2017 to 2021.

BMC Endocr Disord 2022 Jun 30;22(1):168. Epub 2022 Jun 30.

Department of Nephrology, The Affiliated Hospital of Guizhou Medical University, Guiyi Street, Yunyan District, Guiyang, 550004, China.

Comparison of mini endoscopic combined intrarenal surgery and multitract minimally invasive percutaneous nephrolithotomy specifically for kidney staghorn stones: a single-centre experience.

BMC Urol 2022 Jun 30;22(1):93. Epub 2022 Jun 30.

Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, Chi Mei Medical Center, No. 901, Zhonghua Rd. Yongkang Dist., Tainan City, 71004, Taiwan, R.O.C.

Background: Staghorn stones require surgical treatment to prevent serious complications. Multitract percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL) causes great renal parenchymal injury and blood loss. One-stage endoscopic combined intrarenal surgery (ECIRS) entails the combined use of antegrade nephroscope and retrograde flexible ureteroscope to clear the staghorn stone, which may overcome the limitations of multitract PNL.
