[Cystoscopic-guided laser ablation for treatment of ectopic ureteroceles in 2 female dogs].

Tierarztl Prax Ausg K Kleintiere Heimtiere 2021 Apr 22. Epub 2021 Apr 22.

Medizinische Kleintierklinik, Zentrum für klinische Tiermedizin, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.

Two female intact Labrador Retriever dogs (6 and 3 months of age, respectively) presented with a history of urinary incontinence. In both dogs, abdominal ultrasound revealed evidence of a unilateral ectopic ureterocele. Diagnosis of ureteral ectopia was established urethrocystoscopically by visualization of the ureteral orifice in the urethra, and an intramural course was confirmed via retrograde contrast fluoroscopy.

Can extended upper pole ureterectomy prevent ureteral stump syndrome after proximal approach for duplex kidneys?

Int Braz J Urol 2021 Jul-Aug;47(4):821-826

Unidade de Urologia Pediátrica, Divisão de Urologia, Hospital das Clínicas, Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo - FMUSP, SP, Brasil.

Introduction: Symptomatic duplex kidneys usually present with recurrent urinary tract infection due to ureteral obstruction (megaureter, ureterocele or ectopic ureter) and/or vesicoureteral reflux. Upper-pole nephrectomy is a widely accepted procedure to correct symptomatic duplex systems with poor functioning moieties, also known as upper or proximal approach. The distal ureteral stump syndrome (DUSS) can be a late complication of this approach. Read More

Fetal Urinoma Due to Circulatory Disorders in an Umbilical Artery: Case Report.

Pediatr Dev Pathol 2021 Mar 22:10935266211002730. Epub 2021 Mar 22.

Sackler School of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel-Aviv, Israel.

Fetal urinoma is defined as an encapsulated accumulation of extravasated urine within the perirenal space or retroperitoneum. It is an uncommon finding in prenatal practice, and the vast majority of known cases are strongly associated with the existence of a urinary obstruction, such as posterior urethral valves, ureteropelvic junction obstruction, or ureterocele. We report a unique case of prenatally detected fetal bladder urinoma that occurred in the absence of an apparent obstructive uropathy, but was associated with extensive ischemic necrosis and calcifications of adjacent bladder wall, coexistent with signs of vascular supply decompensation.

Laser-puncture of the ureterocele in neonatal patients significantly decreases an incidence of de novo vesico-ureteral reflux than electrosurgical incision.

J Pediatr Urol 2021 Mar 3. Epub 2021 Mar 3.

Department of Pediatris, University Hospital of Split, Split, Croatia; Department of Pediatris, University of Split, School of Medicine, Split, Croatia.

Introduction: Endoscopic laser-puncture or electrosurgical incision are the most commonly used minimaly invasive approaches for the treatment of the ureterocele. Both techniques are mainly successful in decompressing of ureteroceles, but the consequence of such treatment may be formation of de novo vesicoureteral reflux and febrile urinary tract infection which could impact the final results.

Objective: To compare outcomes of treatment of two endoscopic techniques used in management of neonatal patients with intravesical ureterocele. Read More

Assessment of distal ureteral and ureterovesical junction visualization on contrast-enhanced voiding urosonography.

Pediatr Radiol 2021 Feb 12. Epub 2021 Feb 12.

Department of Medical Imaging, Ann & Robert Lurie Children's Hospital, 225 E. Chicago Ave., Chicago, IL, 60611, USA.

Background: Contrast-enhanced voiding urosonography (CEVUS) uses intravesically administered microbubble contrast to detect vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) and urethral anomalies with ultrasound. Multiple studies have suggested CEVUS can replace voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) as a radiation-free alternative. Analysis of the ureterovesical junction and ureters on VCUG documenting the ureterovesical junction position, ureteral duplication, periureteral diverticula and ureteroceles is important as anatomical variations may affect management and surgical approach.

Congenital Anomalies of the Upper Urinary Tract: A Comprehensive Review.

Radiographics 2021 Mar-Apr;41(2):462-486. Epub 2021 Jan 29.

From the Department of Radiology, Diagnósticos da América SA (DASA), Av Juruá 434, Alphaville Industrial, Barueri, SP 06455-010, Brazil.

The upper urinary tract is the most common human system affected by congenital anomalies. Congenital anomalies of the kidneys and ureters comprise a wide spectrum of disorders ranging from simple variants with no clinical significance to complex anomalies that may lead to severe complications and end-stage renal disease. They may be classified as anomalies of renal form, which are subclassified as structural anomalies (eg, persistent fetal lobulation, hypertrophied column of Bertin, and dromedary hump) and fusion anomalies (eg, horseshoe kidney and pancake kidney); anomalies of renal position (eg, renal malrotation, simple renal ectopia, and crossed renal ectopia) and renal number (eg, renal agenesis and supernumerary kidney); and abnormalities in development of the urinary collecting system (eg, pyelocaliceal diverticulum, megacalycosis, ureteropelvic junction obstruction, duplex collecting system, megaureter, ectopic ureter, and ureterocele).

Da Vinci Walks the Pebbled Streets of a Primary Obstructed Megaureter with Ureterocele.

J Endourol Case Rep 2020 29;6(4):358-361. Epub 2020 Dec 29.

Department of Urology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, India.

Primary obstructed megaureter (POM) usually refers to primary dilated ureters in which vesicoureteral reflux and other secondary causes of lower ureteral obstruction have been ruled out. We herein present a case of obstructed megaureter with a dilated saccular lower end representing an ureterocele and concomitant multiple multifaceted stones almost completely filling the dilated tortuous ureter of a normally functioning and excreting kidney. Our index case was a 45-year-old lady with intermittent right flank pain for a year with acute colic since a week. Read More

Transvesical Laparoscopic Surgery for a Stone in the Ureterocele.

Department of Urology, Faculty of Medicine, Saga University, Saga, Japan.

Ureteroceles containing stones present as a unique challenge to the urologist. When a calculus has to be removed from within the ureterocele, a large opening leads to vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), which may result in recurrent infections and renal parenchymal damage. We present a case of a 13-mm stone in the ureterocele in an 11-year-old boy. Read More

Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, Cathay General Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.

BACKGROUND Duplex kidney, also known as duplex renal collecting system, consists of 2 ureters arising from a single kidney and is a common congenital anomaly. The condition is usually an asymptomatic normal variant. However, abnormal anatomic variants such as hydronephrosis, vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), and ureterocele are sometimes observed in a patient with a duplicated kidney. Read More

Department of Urology, NYU Langone Medical Center, New York, New York, USA.

Bilateral ureteroceles in adult males are a rare occurrence, made even more so with simultaneous presence of bladder calculi. Management strategies for such patients are not well documented in the literature.

A Step-by-Step Guide to Double-Puncture Technique for Endoscopic Management of Ureterocele.

Urol J 2020 Sep 13. Epub 2020 Sep 13.

Pediatric Urology and Regenerative Medicine Research Center, Children's Medical Center, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

To date, the optimal surgical technique for treatment of ureterocele remains unclear and the available options are variable. The endoscopic techniques that are gaining popularity mostly share major drawbacks including low success rate, high probability of mandatory secondary surgery and de novo vesicoureteral reflux to the ureterocele moiety. The Double-Puncture technique is shown to have promising outcomes in terms of long-term success and low rate of complications. Read More

Role of Antibiotic Prophylaxis in the Management of Antenatal Hydronephrosis, Vesicoureteral Reflux, and Ureterocele in Infants.

Cureus 2020 Jul 8;12(7):e9064. Epub 2020 Jul 8.

Internal Medicine, California Institute of Behavioral Neurosciences & Psychology, Fairfield, USA.

Widespread prenatal screening has resulted in increased detection of anomalies of the kidneys and urinary tract. Antenatal hydronephrosis (AHN) and vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) are among the most common congenital anomalies diagnosed in utero or after birth. Pediatric urologists frequently rely on continuous antibiotic prophylaxis (CAP) for managing AHN, VUR, and ureterocele, unless definitive treatment is performed. Read More
