Hem-o-Lok clip migration into renal pelvis and stone formation as a long-term complication following laparoscopic pyelolithotomy: a case report and literature review.

BMC Urol 2022 Apr 19;22(1):66. Epub 2022 Apr 19.

Department of Urology, Affiliated Hospital of Zunyi Medical University, 149 Dalian Road, Zunyi, 563000, Guizhou, China.

Background: Hem-o-Lok clips (HOLCs) are widely used in minimal access urological operations due to the advantage of vascular control and suture stabilization. In rare cases, however, they can develop problems themselves. Migration of HOLCs into the collecting system is a fairly rare complication after laparoscopic pyelolithotomy. Read More

Bilaterally Fused Supernumerary Kidneys: A Very Rare Case Report and Review of Literature.

Int Med Case Rep J 2022 21;15:61-68. Epub 2022 Feb 21.

Department of Surgery, Urology Unit, St. Paul's Hospital Millennium Medical College, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Supernumerary kidney is a rare anomaly of number where commonly a third extra kidney exists with its own collecting system, blood supply, and encapsulated parenchyma. However, an extremely rare and unique diagnosis of bilateral supernumerary kidneys is also reported in few instances where two extra kidneys exist on each side of the body. Parenchymal fusion and the presence of good excretory function make the supernumerary kidneys even rarer as many of the reported cases are rudimentary organs. Read More

Spilled stones following pyelolithotomy: An unusual mimic of peritoneal carcinomatosis.

Clin Imaging 2021 Sep 23;77:69-75. Epub 2021 Feb 23.

Department of Radiology, St. Joseph Mercy Oakland Hospital, 44405 Woodward Ave, Pontiac 48076, MI, United States; Huron Valley Radiology, 5301 McAuley Drive, Ypsilanti 48197, MI, United States.

While spillage of intraperitoneal gallstones has been reported frequently in the literature, spilled renal stones after urologic intervention is rare. The dropped renal stones may mimic peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) on imaging, causing concern and potentially leading to unnecessary diagnostic workup. Additionally, these dropped stones may cause surrounding inflammation, potentially leading to the formation of adhesions or an intra-abdominal abscess. Read More

Ultrasound-Guided Access in a Malrotated Kidney: Optimally Safe and Effective.

J Endourol Case Rep 2020 17;6(3):166-169. Epub 2020 Sep 17.

Department of Urology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, New York, USA.

Management of renal calculi in a patient with kidney malrotation can be difficult because of complexity and alteration of collecting system anatomy. Pyelolithotomy, whether open, laparoscopic, or robotic, has been shown to be an effective method of stone removal in this patient population; however, it is not always ideal because of its invasiveness and increased morbidity. Ideally, a percutaneous approach may be less invasive, and if feasible, it can optimize patient safety and stone-free status. Read More
