Net Acid Excretion and Urinary Organic Anions in Idiopathic Uric Acid Nephrolithiasis.

Clin J Am Soc Nephrol 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Internal Medicine,

Background And Objectives: Idiopathic uric acid nephrolithiasis, which is closely associated with obesity and the metabolic syndrome, is increasing in prevalence. Unduly acidic urine pH, the quintessential pathophysiologic feature of this disease, is in part explained by inadequate excretion of the principal urinary buffer ammonium. The role of net acid excretion in the pathogenesis of uric acid nephrolithiasis is incompletely understood. Read More

Ureteral stent versus no ureteral stent for ureteroscopy in the management of renal and ureteral calculi.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019 Feb 6;2:CD012703. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Department of Urology, University of Minnesota, 420 Delaware Street SE, MMC 394, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.

Background: Ureteroscopy combined with laser stone fragmentation and basketing is a common approach for managing renal and ureteral stones. This procedure is associated with some degree of ureteral trauma. Ureteral trauma may lead to swelling, ureteral obstruction, and flank pain and may require subsequent interventions such as hospital admission or secondary ureteral stent placement. Read More

J Endourol 2019 Jan 29. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Mount Sinai Health System, 5944, Urology, New York, New York, United States ;

Introduction: Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is the gold standard procedure for large renal calculi but postoperative (PO) pain remains a concern. Modifications of the PCNL technique and intra- and post-operative strategies have been tested to reduce pain. Postoperative pain control reducing risk of long-term pain medication and narcotic use is of considerable importance. Read More

Sirt3 suppresses calcium oxalate-induced renal tubular epithelial cell injury via modification of FoxO3a-mediated autophagy.

Cell Death Dis 2019 Jan 15;10(2):34. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Department of Urology, Shanghai Changhai Hospital, Second Military Medical University, Shanghai, 200433, China.

High oxalic acid and calcium oxalate (CaOx)-induced renal tubular epithelial cell (TEC) injury plays a key role in nephrolithiasis. However, the mechanism remains unknown. Gene array analysis of the mice nephrolithiasis model indicated significant downregulation of sirtuin 3 (Sirt3) and activation of mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway. Read More

Objective: To present our technique of laparoscopic pyeloplasty (LP) with concomitant pyelolithotomy in ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) complicated by renal calculi and compare outcome with a group of UPJO patients undergoing modified LP without coexistent calculi.

Materials And Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the charts of 51 UPJO patients undergoing modified LP from January 2013 to November 2016 at our institution. Sixteen patients were diagnosed as UPJO with coexistent ipsilateral renal calculi and underwent pyelolithotomy using our modified technique at the time of modified LP. Read More

Noncontrast Computed Tomography Parameters for Predicting Shock Wave Lithotripsy Outcome in Upper Urinary Tract Stone Cases.

Biomed Res Int 2018 2;2018:9253952. Epub 2018 Dec 2.

Department of Urology, Wakayama Medical University, 811-1 Kimiidera, Wakayama 641-0012, Japan.

Kidney stones are a major public health concern with continuously increasing worldwide prevalence. Shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) is the first line treatment choice for upper urinary tract calculi with ureteroscopy and has advantages of safety and noninvasiveness, but the treatment success rate of SWL is lower than that of other therapies. It is therefore important to identify predictive factors for SWL outcome and select a suitable treatment choice for patients with upper urinary tract calculi. Read More

The Impact of Dust and Confinement on Fragmentation of Kidney Stones by Shockwave Lithotripsy in Tissue Phantoms.

J Endourol 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

2 Center for Industrial and Medical Ultrasound, Applied Physics Laboratory, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington.

Objective: The goal was to test whether stone composition and kidney phantom configuration affected comminution in extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (SWL) laboratory tests. Confinement may enhance the accumulation of dust and associated cavitation bubbles in the fluid surrounding the stone. It is known that high shockwave delivery rates in SWL are less effective because bubbles generated by one shockwave do not have sufficient time to dissolve, thereby shielding the next shockwave.

Ceftriaxone-associated nephrolithiasis and gallstone in adults.

Drug Healthc Patient Saf 2018 12;10:103-108. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

Infectious Disease Research Center, Birjand University of Medical Sciences, Birjand, Iran,

Background: Ceftriaxone (CTX) is widely used for the treatment of bacterial infections; however, side effects such as gallstone and nephrolithiasis have been reported in children. There is limited information about urinary tract calculi as CTX side effects in adults. Therefore, the present study was aimed to evaluate the incidence of gallstone and nephrolithiasis following CTX administration. Read More

[Features of urolithiasis in patients of advanced and senile age.]

Adv Gerontol 2018 ;31(3):368-373

Saint-Petersburg Institute of Bioregulation and Gerontology, 3, pr. Dinamo, St. Petersburg 197110, Russian Federation; e-mail:

There were 105 patients of different gender of elderly and senile age with urolithiasis. The entire contingent of patients with ICD was divided into 2 groups: the main group (55 people aged 61-85 years) and the comparison group (50 people aged 40-60). All patients went throught a general clinical examination: a detailed history of the anamnesis, an objective examination, laboratory and instrumental methods of investigation. Read More

The good, the bad, and the ugly of calcium supplementation: a review of calcium intake on human health.

Clin Interv Aging 2018 28;13:2443-2452. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Center for Bioinformatics and Genomics, Department of Global Biostatistics and Data Science, Tulane University, New Orleans, LA 70112, USA,

Calcium is an important integrative component of the human body and critical for human health. It has been well established that calcium intake is helpful in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis, which has become one of the most serious public health problems across the world. However, community-dwelling adults with and without osteoporosis are rarely concerned or even not aware of the potential side effects of high or inappropriate doses of calcium intake. Read More
