Split-cuff nipple technique of ureteral reimplantation in children with thick-walled bladders due to posterior urethral valves.

Urology 2015 Jan 8;85(1):199-204. Epub 2014 Nov 8.

Division of Pediatric Urology, Cohen Children's Medical Center, North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, New Hyde Park, NY; Department of Urology, Weill Cornell Medical Center, New York, NY.

Objective: To describe a novel technique of ureteral reimplantation in patients with thick-walled bladders, which addresses the technical challenges and high failure rates seen in this population.

Methods: From 1997 to 2012, 45 megaureters were reimplanted in 26 children aged 2-11 years. Key surgical modifications included ureteral trough creation within the detrusor, formation of a distal ureteral split-cuff nipple, reliance on transureteroureterostomy (TUU) when the bladder would not support the reimplantation of 2 ureters, performance of psoas vesicopexy, and judicious utilization of ureteral stump augmentation in patients undergoing TUU.

Retroperitoneoscopic transureteroureterostomy with cutaneous ureterostomy to salvage failed ileal conduit urinary diversion.

Eur Urol 2011 May 16;59(5):875-8. Epub 2009 Jun 16.

Department of Urology, Tohoku University School of Medicine, 1-1 Seiryomachi, Aoba-ku, Sendai 980-8575, Japan.

Reconstruction for failed urinary diversion is technically challenging, due to severe tissue adhesion around the anastomotic site. We report successful laparoscopic transureteroureterostomy with cutaneous ureterostomy via a completely extraperitoneal approach to salvage failed ileal conduit in two patients with necrotic ileal conduit and bilateral anastomotic obstruction, respectively. This novel, less invasive approach may offer a viable alternative to open surgical revision for failed ileal conduit urinary diversion. Read More

Augmentation ureterocystoplasty in boys with valve bladder syndrome.

J Pediatr Urol 2007 Dec 16;3(6):433-7. Epub 2007 Aug 16.

Pediatric Urology Unit, Department of Urology, Alexandria University, Raml Station, Alexandria, Egypt.

Objective: Children with valve bladder syndrome represent the worst end of the posterior urethral valve spectrum. When conservative measures fail to control recurrent infections, prevent deterioration of the upper tract (in the form of increasing hydronephrosis and or worsening of kidney function) and improve incontinence, augmentation cystoplasty is considered. In most of these boys, renal insufficiency precludes the use of intestine for augmenting the bladder. Read More

Distal ureteral replacement with tubularized porcine small intestine submucosa.

Urology 2002 Oct;60(4):697

Department of Surgery, Section of Urology, University of Chicago Hospitals, Chicago, Illinois 60637, USA.

Extensive ureteral injury can result from renal stone disease, iatrogenic injury, or penetrating trauma. A significant ureteral stricture can be repaired using various techniques, including the psoas hitch, Boari flap, transureteroureterostomy, ileal ureter, or renal autotransplantation. We describe a woman with a 5-cm, ischemic uretero-Indiana pouch stricture that developed after cystectomy and urinary diversion. Read More

Transureteroureterostomy obstruction mimicking acute tubular necrosis.

Clin Nucl Med 2002 Feb;27(2):109-12

Department of Radiology, Emory University, Emory University Hospital, Atlanta, Georgia 30322, USA.

A patient receiving nephrotoxic chemotherapy for metastatic cervical cancer was examined for acute renal failure. A Tc-99m MAG3 scan showed symmetric function, bilateral increasing parenchymal activity, and no tracer excretion in either collecting system. The differential diagnosis included cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity, dose infiltration, and obstruction of the common ureter. Read More

Single distal ureter for ureterocystoplasty: a safe first choice tissue for bladder augmentation.

J Urol 2001 Jun;165(6 Pt 2):2256-8

Pediatric Hospital H. J. Notti, Mendoza, Hospital Italiano, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Purpose: Recently, the use of ureter for bladder augmentation has gained wide acceptance due to a lower complication rate compared to gastrointestinal segments. Unfortunately, the presence of a severely dilated urinary tract implicates loss of function of a renal unit which is often not demonstrated at diagnosis. Conversely, many patients present with 1 or both ureters mildly dilated because of vesicoureteral reflux or functional obstruction. Read More

Principles of ureteric reconstruction.

Authors:
J C Png C R Chapple

Curr Opin Urol 2000 May;10(3):207-12

Department of Surgery, National University Hospital, Singapore.

The principles of ureteric reconstruction are not different from those of reconstructive urology in the rest of the urinary system. The importance of ensuring good vascular supply, complete excision of pathological lesions, good drainage and a wide spatulated and tension-free anastomosis of mucosa to mucosa remain paramount. Although time of diagnosis is the most single most adverse factor affecting outcome, the majority of ureteric injuries still present postoperatively, and delays in diagnosis are the rule rather than the exception.

Ureterocystoplasty: an alternative reconstructive procedure to enterocystoplasty in suitable cases.

J Pediatr Surg 2000 Apr;35(4):577-9

Department of Urology, Hacettepe University School of Medicine, Ankara, Turkey.

Purpose: The objective of the report is to present the results of ureterocystoplasty in 6 children with megaureters and low-capacity, high-pressure bladders.

Methods: Of the 6 patients, 2 had valve bladders, 1 had Hinmann's syndrome, 1 had neuropathic bladder, and the remaining 2 with ureterocutaneostomy were mainly diverted because of refluxing megaureters. Nephrectomy was performed in both of the boys with posterior urethral valve because of vesicoureteral reflux dysplasia (VURD) syndrome, and the ipsilateral ureter was used for the augmentation.

Extraperitoneal ureterocystoplasty with transureteroureterostomy.

Urology 1999 Mar;53(3):634-6

Urology Unit, Royal Children's Hospital, Parkville, Victoria, Australia.

Ureterocystoplasty enables the bladder to be reliably enlarged and the resultant neobladder to be lined by urothelium. Many techniques have been described for the operative management of the lower ureter, and a number of alternatives have been suggested for reconstruction of the upper renal tract and bladder. This report describes a new approach that allows renal preservation, transureteroureterostomy, and ureterocystoplasty through an extraperitoneal approach. Read More
