A Novel Nonvascular Application of the Steerable Microcatheter.

Cureus 2018 Oct 19;10(10):e3469. Epub 2018 Oct 19.

Interventional Radiology, University of Florida College of Medicine, Jacksonville, USA.

The percutaneous nephrostomy (PCN) is a relatively common interventional procedure used to treat a multitude of nephro-urological conditions. Traditionally, interventional radiologists use ultrasound guidance, needles, catheters, and guidewires to access the collecting system percutaneously. The placement of a nephro-ureterostomy stent may be precluded by challenging renal calyx anatomy or an underlying disease process that obstructs placement. Read More

Image-Guided Nephrostomy Interventions: How to Recognize, Avoid, or Get Out of Trouble.

Tech Vasc Interv Radiol 2018 Dec 30;21(4):261-266. Epub 2018 Jul 30.

Wake Forest School of Medicine, Medical Center Boulevard, Winston-Salem, NC.

Image-guided percutaneous nephrostomy is a relatively safe and successful procedure for access to the renal collecting system for multiple purposes including relief of urinary obstruction, urinary diversion, access for endourologic procedures, and diagnostic testing. Although placing a percutaneous nephrostomy catheter is most times straightforward, providing immediate benefit for the patient and satisfaction for the practitioner, there can be situations that make the procedure more difficult or risky. A thorough review of the patient's imaging and medical record will help to set a path for success. Read More

Ultrasound for kidney access in percutaneous nephrolithotomy: a contemporary review.

Med Ultrason 2018 12;20(4):508-514

Center for Uronephrology and Renal Transplantation, Fundeni Clinical Institute, Bucharest, Romania, Urologic Surgery, Fundeni Clinical Institute,"Carol Davila" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest, Romania.

Nowadays percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is the standard of care for renal staghorn calculus or large (>20 mm) pelvic or caliceal stones, as well as for the failure of other treatment options. This review aims to evaluate the contemporary use of ultrasound imaging in PCNL, by comparing it to conventional fluoroscopy, reviewing data regarding the complication and success rate of nephrostomy tract creation and stone free rate (SFR), as well as data concerning the learning curve for these procedures and cost indicators. The evidence acquired shows that the ultrasound guided access (USGA) is a comparable method with the classic fluoroscopic guided access (FGA), with a similar safety profile, with a significant reduction in radiation exposure, up to radiation free complete PCNL.

Am J Case Rep 2018 Oct 4;19:1179-1183. Epub 2018 Oct 4.

Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, Al Wakra Hospital, Hamad Medical Corporation, Al Wakra, Qatar.

BACKGROUND Urinary tract candida infection can be due either to hematogenous dissemination of the organism or a retrograde infection. In debilitated or immunosuppressed septic patients, who have upper urinary tract obstruction with renal filling defect, fungal infection should be considered. We report on a patient with sepsis and renal fungal ball who was treated with percutaneous nephrostomy and intravenous antifungal agent, but the patient did not respond so instillation of fluconazole through nephrostomy was given.

Percutaneous nephrostomy vs ureteral stent for hydronephrosis secondary to ureteric calculi: impact on spontaneous stone passage and health-related quality of life-a prospective study.

Urolithiasis 2018 Sep 15. Epub 2018 Sep 15.

Urology Department, Hospital de Braga, Rua das Sete Fontes, São Victor, Braga, Portugal.

Ureteral calculi can be associated with urinary drainage blockage, requiring urinary diversion with percutaneous nephrostomy (PCN) or retrograde ureteral stent (RUS). Currently no evidence exists to support the superiority of one method over the other. This study proposes to compare both approaches regarding the probability of spontaneous stone passage (SSP) and its effect on patient's quality of life (QoL). Read More

Aktuelle Urol 2018 Sep 5;49(5):422-428. Epub 2018 Sep 5.

Universitätsklinik für Urologie, Medizinische Universität Innsbruck, Innsbruck.

Symptomatic urinary obstruction, characterised by decreased or absent urinary outflow, is a common concomitant disease in patients with urological malignancies or carcinomas forming abdominal metastases. While acute urinary obstruction is associated with renal colics, chronic urinary obstruction often goes unnoticed for a long time. In addition to intrinsic causes such as upper urinary tract tumours, this condition is often caused by external compression of the ureter by tumour masses. Read More
