Asian J Urol 2020 Apr 19;7(2):139-148. Epub 2019 Oct 19.

Department of Urology, University of California, Oakland, CA, USA.

Staghorn calculi comprise a unique subset of complex kidney stone disease. Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is the gold standard treatment for staghorn stones. Despite continuous refinements to the technique and instrumentation of PCNL, these stones remain a troublesome challenge for endourologists and are associated with a higher rate of perioperative complications than that for non-staghorn stones.

Management and treatment options when facing malignant ureteral obstruction.

Int J Urol 2020 Apr 6. Epub 2020 Apr 6.

Smith Institute for Urology, New Hyde Park, New York, USA.

Malignant ureteral obstruction is an unfortunate finding that can be caused by a wide-ranging number of malignancies with a prognosis of limited survival. Given its presentation and progression, it can be refractory to treatment by traditional single polymeric ureteral stents. With a higher failure rate than causes of benign ureteral obstruction, a number of other options are available for initial management, as well as in cases of first-line therapy failure, including tandem stents, metallic stents, percutaneous nephrostomies and extra-anatomic stents.

Delayed Presentation of Urinoma Following Renal Transplant Biopsy: A Case Report.

Transplant Proc 2020 Mar;52(2):619-621

University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust, Derriford Hospital, Plymouth, United Kingdom.

A urinoma is an unusual complication following renal transplant biopsy that can easily be missed or mistaken for a hematoma. In addition to trauma to the renal collecting system, a degree of urinary tract obstruction is required for urine to leak into the surrounding tissues and form a urinoma, which can in turn cause pressure on surrounding structures. This case report describes a patient who developed ipsilateral leg swelling several months after a renal transplant biopsy. Read More

Optimal Management of Upper Tract Urothelial Carcinoma: Current Perspectives.

Onco Targets Ther 2020 6;13:1-15. Epub 2020 Jan 6.

Department of Urology, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Singapore.

Introduction: Upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) is a relatively uncommon urologic malignancy for which there has not been significant improvement in survival over the past few decades, highlighting the need for optimal multi-modality management.

Methods: A non-systematic review of the latest literature was performed to include relevant articles up to June 2019. It summarizes the epidemiologic risk factors associated with UTUC, including smoking, carcinogenic aromatic amines, arsenic, aristolochic acid, and Lynch syndrome. Read More

Ureteroneocystostomy herniation leading to obstructive uropathy 10 years postrenal transplant: A rare case report.

Urol Ann 2020 Jan-Mar;12(1):90-91. Epub 2019 Nov 7.

Department of Nephrology, Max Superspeciality Hospital, Patparganj, Delhi, India.

Herniation of the urinary bladder is observed in around 1%-4% of cases. Bladder herniation rarely presents with obstructive uropathy; however, bladder herniation carrying ureteroneocystostomy and leading to obstructive uropathy of the graft is even rare. Here, we present a case of a 36-year-old male with deranged renal function test who had undergone renal transplant 10 years back. Read More

Prospective audit of complications after ultrasonography-guided percutaneous nephrostomy for upper urinary tract obstruction using modified Clavien classification system.

Urol Ann 2020 Jan-Mar;12(1):31-36. Epub 2019 Nov 7.

Department of Urology, Jawaharlal Institute of Medical Education and Research, Puducherry, India.

Introduction: Percutaneous nephrostomy (PCN) is a commonly performed intervention in urology for various benign and malignant conditions causing upper urinary tract obstruction. We present a prospective audit of complications of ultrasonography (USG) guided PCN using modified Clavien classification system (mCCS).

Methods: The data were prospectively collected for 368 PCN performed in 344 patients from June 2015 to January 2017, for various benign and malignant diseases causing upper urinary tract obstruction. Read More

[Using of a dismountable 3D-model of the collecting system with color segmentation to improve the learning curve of residents].

Urologiia 2019 12(6):21-25

Department of urology of FGBOU VO North-Western State Medical University named after I.I. Mechnikov, Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Aim: to determine the efficiency of using a non-biological dismountable 3D-model of the collecting system with color segmentation for better understanding of its anatomy by residents and to determine the optimal tactics of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL).

Materials And Methods: 3D-models of the collecting system were developed based on CT data of 5 patients with staghorn stones, for whom PNL was planned. CT images were obtained in the Dicom format. Read More

We encountered a patient with a misplaced percutaneous nephrostomy drainage tube (PNDT) into the contralateral renal vein resulting thrombus formation after undergoing right side PCNL. We placed a temporary filter to prevent embolism and started anti-coagulation therapy immediately and finally the PNDT was removed without bleeding. Read More
