Postnatal Management in Congenital Lower Urinary Tract Obstruction With and Without Prenatal Vesicoamniotic Shunt.

Front Pediatr 2021 14;9:635950. Epub 2021 Apr 14.

Center for Pediatric, Adolescent and Reconstructive Urology, Medical Faculty Mannheim, University of Medical Center Mannheim, Heidelberg University, Heidelberg, Germany.

Congenital lower urinary tract obstruction (cLUTO) includes a heterogeneous group of conditions caused by a functional or mechanical outlet obstruction. Early vesicoamniotic shunting (VAS) possibly reduces the burden of renal impairment. Postpartum, pediatric urologists are confronted with neonates who have a shunt in place and a potentially impassable urethra with a narrow caliber. Read More

Postoperative interventions for preventing bladder dysfunction after radical hysterectomy in women with early-stage cervical cancer.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2021 01 25;1:CD012863. Epub 2021 Jan 25.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Faculty of Medicine, Khon Kaen University, Khon Kaen, Thailand.

Improvements in Bladder Function Following Activity-Based Recovery Training With Epidural Stimulation After Chronic Spinal Cord Injury.

Front Syst Neurosci 2020 5;14:614691. Epub 2021 Jan 5.

Kentucky Spinal Cord Injury Research Center, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY, United States.

Spinal cord injury (SCI) results in profound neurologic impairment with widespread deficits in sensorimotor and autonomic systems. Voluntary and autonomic control of bladder function is disrupted resulting in possible detrusor overactivity, low compliance, and uncoordinated bladder and external urethral sphincter contractions impairing storage and/or voiding. Conservative treatments managing neurogenic bladder post-injury, such as oral pharmacotherapy and catheterization, are important components of urological surveillance and clinical care. Read More

Cystoscopically Placed Pancreatic Duct Stent for Management of Bladder-Drained Pancreas Transplant with Pancreatic Duct Leak.

J Endourol Case Rep 2020 29;6(4):249-252. Epub 2020 Dec 29.

Department of Urology, University of Kansas Health System, Kansas City, Kansas, USA.

Historically, exocrine pancreas secretions during pancreas transplant were commonly managed by bladder drainage. Although this technique has fallen out of favor because of significant rates of urologic complications, urologists must still be prepared to assist when they arise. We describe the first reported case of a cystoscopically placed pancreatic duct stent for management of a pancreas transplant duodenocystostomy leak in the setting of normal bladder function.

Results of a previously unreported extravesical ureteroneocystostomy technique without ureteral stenting in 500 consecutive kidney transplant recipients.

PLoS One 2021 11;16(1):e0244248. Epub 2021 Jan 11.

Department of Surgery, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Jackson Memorial Hospital, Miami, Florida, United States of America.

Urologic complications can still occur following kidney transplantation, sometimes requiring multiple radiological and/or surgical procedures to fully correct the problem. Previously proposed extravesical ureteral reimplantation techniques still carry non-negligible risks of the patient developing urologic complications. About 10 years ago, a new set of modifications to the Lich-Gregoir technique was developed at our center, with the goal of further minimizing the occurrence of urologic complications, and without the need for initial ureteral stent placement.

Department of Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, North Carolina, USA.

Surgical procedures that maintain continence with minimal complication following resection of trigono-urethral urothelial carcinoma (UC) are limited in canines; therefore, palliative options are often pursued. A feasible tumor resection option may improve disease control and survival. The study's objective was to evaluate a continent urine reservoir created from the urinary bladder body and vascularized solely by omentum. Read More
