Robotic-assisted ureteral reimplantation and psoas hitch after ureteral injury during cesarean section.

Int Urogynecol J 2021 Jan 6. Epub 2021 Jan 6.

Department of Urology, Wake Forest Baptist Health, One Medical Center Boulevard, Winston-Salem, NC, 27101, USA.

Introduction And Hypothesis: Ureteral injury during gynecological surgery can be managed in a variety of ways, from endoscopic stent placement to ureteroneocystotomy with accompanying psoas hitch and/or Boari flap. The majority of these occur during hysterectomy; therefore, gynecologic surgeons may not be as familiar with repair in women with intact uteri. Herein we present our technique for delayed robotic-assisted ureteral reimplant and psoas hitch in a woman with a ureteral injury sustained during cesarean section, which initially presented as a uretero-cervical fistula.

Timing of diagnosis of complex lower urinary tract injury in the 30-day postoperative period following benign hysterectomy.

Am J Obstet Gynecol 2021 May 3;224(5):502.e1-502.e10. Epub 2020 Nov 3.

Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, IL.

Endoscopic Management of Iatrogenic Ureteral Injury: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

J Endourol Case Rep 2019 2;5(4):142-144. Epub 2019 Dec 2.

Division of Urology, University of Utah School of Medicine, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Iatrogenic ureteral injury represents an uncommon, but significant, complication of gynecologic surgery. Endoscopy has typically played little to no role in the treatment of these injuries, which are traditionally managed with re-exploration or delayed repair. Delayed repair with temporary urinary diversion exposes the patient to significant morbidity. Read More

Case Rep Obstet Gynecol 2020 28;2020:9214613. Epub 2020 Jan 28.

Department of Urology, Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, Temple University Hospital, 3401 N. Broad St, Philadelphia, PA 19140, USA.

Iatrogenic injury to the urinary system is a known complication of gynecologic surgery; therefore, intraoperative cystoscopy is frequently performed to assess for such injuries. However, if an abnormality is seen, the differential diagnosis extends beyond iatrogenic causes. A 42-year-old patient underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy and had absent efflux from the right ureteral orifice on cystoscopy. Read More

A case report of endorectal displacement of a right ureteral stent following radiochemotherapy and Bevacizumab.

BMC Urol 2019 Dec 9;19(1):128. Epub 2019 Dec 9.

Department of Translational Research and New Technologies in Medicine and Surgery, Sections of Urology, University of Pisa, via Paradisa 2, 56126, Pisa, Italy.

Background: The angiogenesis inhibitor monoclonal antibody Bevacizumab is presently the standard treatment for numerous neoplasms but particular toxicities are emerging, such as hypertension, haemorrhage, thromboembolism, gastrointestinal perforation, fistulae, and delayed wound healing. The addition of Bevacizumab to radio and chemotherapy has improved the overall survival rate in patients with metastatic, persistent or recurrent cervical carcinoma. However an increased risk of enteric or urinary fistula formation has been documented, related to hypoxia which is induced by the inhibition of angiogenesis. Read More
