Upper Ureteric Stricture Secondary to Celiac Plexus Block Managed by Robotic Ureterocalicostomy.

J Endourol Case Rep 2018 3;4(1):183-185. Epub 2018 Nov 3.

Department of Urology, Asian Institute of Nephrology & Urology, Hyderabad, Telangana, India.

Ureterocalicostomy is a well-established procedure of choice for recurrent pelviureteric junction (PUJ) obstruction refractory to endoscopic management, failed pyeloplasty, completely intrarenal pelvis, and iatrogenic upper ureteral stricture with significant peripelvic fibrosis. Robotic ureterocalicostomy is the procedure of choice in such scenarios where meticulous dissection and accurate anastomotic suturing is required. We report the case of an 18-year-old male, who underwent celiac plexus block for pain management of chronic calcific pancreatitis and presented with pain in the epigastric region and the right flank.

Ureterocalicostomy with lower pole nephrectomy in a renal transplant: A case report.

Am J Transplant 2018 Sep 9;18(9):2347-2351. Epub 2018 Jun 9.

Department of Urology, Universidade Federal de Sao Paulo (UNIFESP), Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil.

As the number of kidney transplants continues to rise, so does the number and complexities of surgical-related complications, which may be associated with increased morbidity and potentially graft loss. Ureteral stenosis, the most prevalent urological complication, may require diverse techniques for surgical correction depending on several recipient and graft abnormalities. Here we report the surgical and clinical outcomes of a 62-year-old man with a posttransplant pyeloureterostomy stricture successfully treated with ureterocalicostomy after a lower pole nephrectomy.

Importance of lower pole nephrectomy during ureterocalicostomy.

Urol Ann 2017 Oct-Dec;9(4):407-409

Department of Urology and Renal Transplantation, SGPGIMS, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Ureterocalicostomy is usually a salvage procedure for recurrent pelvi-ureteric junction (PUJ) stricture or upper ureteric injury. It requires meticulous dissection of the upper ureter, and lower pole nephrectomy is considered an essential step to achieve a wide funneled and dependent ureterocaliceal anastomosis. We, hereby, highlight the importance of guillotine lower pole nephrectomy through a case report of recurrent PUJ stricture managed with ureterocalicostomy that failed due to the omission of lower pole nephrectomy.

[Ureterocalicostomy: indications and results based on a series of 16 patients].

Prog Urol 2005 Sep;15(4):641-5

Service d'Urologie, Hôpital Sahloul, Sousse, Tunisie.

Formerly considered to be a salvage or last resort technique before nephrectomy, ureterocalicostomy can be indicated in certain well defined situations, when strictly dependent drainage of urine is essential. Due to its particular indications, this procedure is rarely performed and operators have limited experience. The authors report 17 cases of ureterocalicostomy performed in 16 patients: 8 cases obtained an excellent long-term result with absence of clinical signs, urinary tract infection and proximal dilatation of the neo-junction.

Ureteral pseudodiverticulum associated with absorbable suture clips after laparoscopic pyeloplasty: case report.

J Endourol 2005 Jul-Aug;19(6):726-9

Department of Urology, University of California, Irvine Medical Center, Orange, California 92868, USA.

A 48 year-old woman with pyelonephritis was found to have bilateral ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction and a nonfunctioning right kidney. She initially underwent a laparoscopic left nondismembered pyeloplasty using absorbable polydioxanone Lapra-Ty suture clips (Ethicon Endosurgery, Cincinnati, OH) to secure the anastomosis. An antegrade endopyelotomy was later necessitated. Read More

Ureterocalicostomy: a contemporary experience.

Urology 2005 Jan;65(1):42-4

Department of Urology, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, North Carolina 27157-1094, USA.

Objectives: To report our contemporary experience with ureterocalicostomy to determine whether the indications or results have changed in modern practice. Ureterocalicostomy is a well-established treatment for patients with complicated ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction and other forms of proximal ureteral obstruction. Although both retrograde and antegrade endourologic interventions have become accepted forms of management, the success rates do not approach those of open or even laparoscopic interventions, potentially leading to a greater number of patients with treatment failure and the need for more complicated reconstruction.

[Use of ureterocalicostomy in child].

Cir Pediatr 2004 Jul;17(3):108-12

Unidad de Urología Pediátrica, Servicio de Urología, Fundació Puigvert, Barcelona.

Introduction: There are many clinical situations in wich it may be difficult to perform appropriately an anastomosis between the renal pelvis and the proximal portion of the uretersafely. Preservation of the organ depens upon the availability of surgical resources. In fact, that principle becomes particularipy significant when dealing with children. Read More

Laparoscopic-assisted upper pole ureterocalicostomy using renal inversion and autotransplantation.

Urology 2004 Jun;63(6):1182-4

Department of Urology, University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine, San Francisco, California 94143-0738, USA.

Despite various described methods of reconstruction after upper ureteral injury, many cases are complex and remain a surgical challenge. Careful preoperative evaluation and planning are crucial in the selection of the appropriate procedure, particularly in patients in whom preservation of the renal mass is imperative. We report a case of severe upper ureteral injury and subsequent fibrosis, with no usable renal pelvis and focal upper pole dilation, that was managed with renal inversion and upper pole ureterocalicostomy.

Retroperitoneoscopic ureterocalicostomy for congenital proximal ureteral stenosis.

Urology 2004 May;63(5):982-4

Department of Urology, Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan.

We report the first case of retroperitoneoscopic ureterocalicostomy in a 17-year-old male patient with severe left hydronephrosis caused by a long congenital upper ureteral stenosis. With a retroperitoneoscopic approach, the stenotic segment was resected, the thin renal parenchyma overlying the lower calyx was fenestrated by a modest excision, and the proximal ureter was anastomosed to the lower pole in an end-to-end manner. At 2 years postoperatively, the patient was asymptomatic, with a significant reduction in hydronephrosis and a patent upper ureter. Read More

[Late diagnosis of the avulsion of the pyelo-ureteral junction treated by ureterocalicostomy].

Ann Urol (Paris) 1997 ;31(5):288-90

Clinique d'Urologie, Hôpital d'Instruction des Armées du Val-de-Grâce, Paris.

The authors report an exceptional case of delayed diagnosis of avulsion of the ureteropelvic junction in a 27-year-old man. Organization of the urohaematoma prevented ureteropelvic anastomosis and the kidney could only be preserved by performing ureterocalicostomy. This technique, generally used for tuberculous retracted renal pelvis, or failure of pyelotomy or ureteropelvic junction repair in horseshoe kidneys or kidneys with retracted renal pelvis, allowed renal preservation in this case.
