Endourologic Management of a 15-Year-Old Neglected, Fragmented, and Encrusted Ureteral Stent.

J Endourol Case Rep 2018 17;4(1):201-204. Epub 2018 Dec 17.

Department of Urology, Sulaymaniyah General Teaching Hospital, Sulaymaniyah, Iraq.

Ureteral stents (Double-J stents) have been widely used in urology to prevent or relieve ureteral obstruction and have become an integral part of urologic practice. However, if ureteral stents are kept for a prolonged period or neglected, they can cause significant morbidity because of complications such as stent migration, encrustation, occlusion, stone formation, and fragmentation. Therefore, it is crucial to remove stents as soon as possible after they have served their purpose, to prevent complications and morbidity. Read More

Expanding the indications of robotic surgery in urology: A systematic review of the literature.

Arab J Urol 2018 Sep 7;16(3):270-284. Epub 2018 Aug 7.

Bristol Urological Institute, Southmead Hospital, Bristol, UK.

Objectives: To evaluate the recent developments in robotic urological surgery, as the introduction of robotic technology has overcome many of the difficulties of pure laparoscopic surgery enabling surgeons to perform complex minimally invasive procedures with a shorter learning curve. Robot-assisted surgery (RAS) is now offered as the standard for various surgical procedures across multiple specialities.

Methods: A systematic search of MEDLINE, PubMed and EMBASE databases was performed to identify studies evaluating robot-assisted simple prostatectomy, salvage radical prostatectomy, surgery for urolithiasis, distal ureteric reconstruction, retroperitoneal lymph node dissection, augmentation ileocystoplasty, and artificial urinary sphincter insertion.

Laparoscopic laser lithotripsy inside the endocatch bag: An alternative technique for removal of large post lap pyelolithotomy calculi.

Med J Armed Forces India 2018 Jan 28;74(1):72-75. Epub 2016 Dec 28.

Resident (General Surgery), Command Hospital (Central Command), Lucknow 226002, India.

Large staghorn calculi in unascended pelvic kidneys and in normally located kidneys with anatomy unsuitable for percutaneous nephrolithotomy have to be treated via pyelolithotomy. When performed laparoscopically, the extraction of these staghorn calculi, without extending skin incision at the port site is challenging. We describe the successful use of laparoscopic laser lithotripsy, intracorporeally, with the entrapped calculus inside the endocatch bag, for fragmentation and retrieval without extension of skin incision.

Robot-assisted pyeloplasty and pyelolithotomy in patients with ureteropelvic junction stenosis.

Scand J Urol 2017 Aug 11;51(4):323-328. Epub 2017 Apr 11.

a Department of Urology , Zealand University Hospital , Roskilde , Denmark.

Objective: Approximately one in five patients with ureteropelvic junction stenosis (UPJS) also present with renal or ureteral stones. For patients with UPJS, the European Association of Urology guidelines currently recommend that robot-assisted pyeloplasty (RAP) and pyelolithotomy are performed as two separate procedures. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the feasibility and safety of RAP with concomitant pyelolithotomy (RAP + P) in patients diagnosed with UPJS and renal stones. Read More

Surgical management of urinary stones with abnormal kidney anatomy.

Kaohsiung J Med Sci 2017 Apr 1;33(4):207-211. Epub 2017 Mar 1.

Department of Urology, Koru Ankara Hospital, Ankara, Turkey.

In spite of the fact that urologic surgical techniques used by urologists are becoming more and more minimally invasive and easier because of developing technologies, surgical approaches for the urinary stones in kidneys with abnormal anatomy are still confusing. The objective of this article is to determine the treatment options in these kidneys. For this purpose, between 2005 and 2015, we retrospectively evaluated patients operated for urolithiasis with various congenital renal anomalies in five referral urology clinics in our country.

Complex cystine kidney stones treated with combined robot-assisted laparoscopic pyelolithotomy and intraoperative renoscopy.

Urologia 2018 May 18;85(2):76-78. Epub 2017 Feb 18.

1 Department of Oncological and Surgical Sciences, Urology Clinic, University of Padua, Padua - Italy.

National Practice Pattern and Time Trends in Treatment of Upper Urinary Tract Calculi in Korea: a Nationwide Population-Based Study.

J Korean Med Sci 2016 Dec;31(12):1989-1995

Department of Family Medicine, Seoul National University Hospital, Seoul, Korea.

Despite high prevalence of upper urinary tract calculi (UUTC), there are few studies regarding patterns of care in Asian populations. We investigated treatment patterns and time trends in patients with newly diagnosed UUTC in Korea using the National Health Insurance database that includes de-identified claims from a random 2% sample of the entire population (> 1 million people). A total of 14,282 patients who received active treatments, including shock wave lithotripsy (SWL), ureteroscopic surgery (URS), percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL), and uretero/pyelolithotomy (UPL), for newly diagnosed UUTC between 2003 and 2013 were included.

Are there any predictors of pyonephrosis in patients with renal calculus disease?

Urolithiasis 2017 Aug 7;45(4):415-420. Epub 2016 Nov 7.

Department of Urology, King George's Medical University, Lucknow, 226003, UP, India.

The objective of the study is to identify factors predicting development of pyonephrosis in patients of renal calculus disease (RCD), as this knowledge is largely unknown. Patients of RCD without pyonephrosis (Group 1) or with pyonephrosis (Group 2) presenting between December 2013 and November 2015 were evaluated. All patients of RCD who had undergone either percutaneous nephrostomy (PCN) or surgical management (percutaneous nephrolithotomy/pyelolithotomy/nephrectomy) were included. Read More
