Imaging of flank pain: readdressing state-of-the-art.

Emerg Radiol 2017 Feb 10;24(1):81-86. Epub 2016 Sep 10.

Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, University of California, San Francisco, 4150 Clement Street, Building 200, Rm 2A-166, San Francisco, CA, 94121, USA.

Pain resulting from renal and ureteral stones is a common cause for patients presenting in the acute setting. Since the late 1990s, computed tomography (CT) has been the initial imaging method of choice to evaluate patients with suspected ureteral stones; however, concerns regarding both radiation dose and cost-effectiveness have prompted investigations into a different imaging algorithm. Studies utilizing ultrasound have provided evidence indicating that it may be a more appropriate first step, with selective use of CT in selected cases, in the diagnostic work-up. Read More

Melamine Impairs Renal and Vascular Function in Rats.

Sci Rep 2016 06 21;6:28041. Epub 2016 Jun 21.

School of Biomedical Sciences, Institute of Vascular Medicine and Li Ka Shing Institute of Health Sciences, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong.

Melamine incident, linked to nephrotoxicity and kidney stone in infants previously exposed to melamine-contaminated milk products, was unprecedentedly grave in China in 2008 as little was known about the mechanistic process leading to renal dysfunction in affected children. This study investigates whether neonatal ingestion of melamine leads to renal and vascular dysfunction in adulthood; and whether ingestion of melamine in pregnant rats leads to renal dysfunction in their offspring. A combination of approaches employed includes functional studies in rat renal arteries, renal blood flow measurement by functional magnetic resonance imaging, assay for pro-inflammatory and fibrotic biomarkers, immunohistochemistry, and detection of plasma and renal melamine.

To determine an optimal invasive intervention for renal colic patients during pregnancy after conservative treatments have been found to be unhelpful. Among the available invasive interventions, we investigated the reliability of a ureteral stent insertion, which is considered the least invasive intervention during pregnancy. Between June 2006 and February 2015, a total of 826 pregnant patients came to the emergency room or urology outpatient department, and 39 of these patients had renal colic. Read More

The diagnostic value of magnetic resonance urography using a balanced turbo field echo sequence.

Eur Radiol 2016 Dec 16;26(12):4624-4631. Epub 2016 Mar 16.

Department of Urology, Baskent University Faculty of Medicine, Konya, Turkey.

Objectives: The aim of the study was to compare the inter-observer variability and the accuracy of magnetic resonance urography (MRU) using a thin sectional balanced-turbo field echo (B-TFE) sequence for detecting ureteral calculi and to determine the effect of additional factors (size, density and location of the calculus) on the sensitivity and specificity of the MRU.

Materials & Methods: MRU and CT images were evaluated independently by two radiologists according to presence, density and localization of calculi. The degrees of inter-rater agreement for categorical items were evaluated by the Kappa coefficient. Read More

Diagnostic and management considerations for nephrolithiasis in the gravid patient.

Clin Nephrol 2016 Feb;85(2):70-6

Renal colic is recognized as one of the most common causes of non-obstetric hospitalization during pregnancy. Furthermore, both symptomatic urolithiasis and its management have been associated with preterm labor, markedly amplifying the "typical" concerns of either pregnancy or stone passage alone. As those specializing in the care of stone disease are likely to be involved in the management of suspected renal colic in the pregnant woman, it is imperative to be informed of strategies and pitfalls in the evaluation and treatment of urinary tract stones in this population.

Radiology Department, Umberto I Hospital, Sapienza University, Viale del Policlinico 155, Rome 00161, Italy.

Acute abdominal pain in pregnancy presents diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Ultrasound remains the primary imaging investigation of the pregnant abdomen because of its availability, portability, and lack of ionizing radiation. MR imaging has been shown to be useful in the diagnosis of gynecologic and obstetric problems and in the setting of acute abdomen during pregnancy. Read More

Inova Fairfax Hospital Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 3300 Gallows Road, Falls Church, VA 22042, USA.

Spontaneous rupture of the renal collecting system is a rare but serious complication of pregnancy. We report a case of nontraumatic left renal calyceal rupture in a pregnancy which ultimately progressed to preterm delivery. A 29-year-old primigravida with a remote history of urolithiasis presented with left flank pain, suprapubic pain, and signs of preterm labor at 33 weeks of gestation. Read More

The Use of Medical Expulsive Therapy During Pregnancy: A Worldwide Perspective Among Experts.

J Endourol 2016 Mar 22;30(3):354-8. Epub 2016 Jan 22.

2 Department of Urology, Feinberg School of Medicine , Chicago, Illinois.

Introduction: Medical expulsive therapy (MET) is a pharmacologic approach thought to augment the spontaneous passage of ureteral calculi. The usage of MET pharmacologics for presumed ureteral calculi during pregnancy has not been studied and their safety and utility are unknown. We sought to characterize the worldwide usage of MET in the setting of pregnancy with presumed ureteral calculus (P-MET), as well as factors associated with physician use. Read More

The role of imaging in the diagnosis and management of renal stone disease in pregnancy.

Clin Radiol 2015 Dec 9;70(12):1462-71. Epub 2015 Oct 9.

Department of Radiology, St James's University Hospital, Leeds, UK.

The distinction of pain in pregnancy due to urolithiasis from that related to physiological dilation of the renal tract is a common conundrum as renal colic is one of the commonest causes for non-obstetric pain in pregnancy. Ultrasound is the first-line imaging test but although it may demonstrate renal dilation, it may not show the cause. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is able to make the distinction. Read More
