Tubulocystic anomalies of the mesonephric duct associated with ipsilateral renal dysgenesis.

J Pediatr Urol 2018 Sep 6. Epub 2018 Sep 6.

Department of Paediatric Surgery and Urology, Birmingham Children's Hospital, Steelhouse Lane, Birmingham, B4 6NH, United Kingdom. Electronic address:

Introduction: Renal agenesis and multicystic dysplastic kidney (MCDK) are usually associated with either an absent or atretic ureter. Occasionally, these renal anomalies may be associated with a dilated tortuous ureter, ureterocele or other cystic malformation of mesonephric duct (MND) remnants.

Objectives: The objective of this study was to identify and classify anatomical variants of tubulocystic remnants of the MND, with a secondary focus on natural history and management outcomes. Read More

Robotic surgery in pediatric urology: Current status.

Asian J Endosc Surg 2018 Nov 27;11(4):308-317. Epub 2018 Sep 27.

Department of Pediatric Urology, Nagoya City University Graduate School of Medical Sciences, Nagoya, Japan.

Robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery (RALS) has been increasingly embraced in the fields of adult and pediatric urology, especially in North America and Europe. The advantages of a stable magnified 3-D view, tremor filtering, and motion scaling allow for precise intracorporeal exposure and suturing. Because most surgeries are performed as reconstructive rather than excision procedures, the robotic platform is particularly feasible for the field of pediatric urology. Read More

Ipsilateral ureteroureterostomy: does function of the obstructed moiety matter?

J Pediatr Urol 2018 Aug 20. Epub 2018 Aug 20.

Pediatric Urology, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, PA, USA. Electronic address:

Purpose: Upper pole nephrectomy has been the traditional surgical management of children with poorly functioning upper pole moieties in duplex renal collecting systems having ureteral ectopia and ureterocele. However, ablative surgery confers a risk of functional loss to the remnant moiety due to vasospasm or vascular injury. It was hypothesized that ipsilateral ureteroureterostomy (IUU) is a safe and feasible approach for the management of these patients and that residual function in the obstructed upper pole does not affect surgical outcomes.

Benefits of spinal anesthesia for urologic surgery in the youngest of patients.

J Pediatr Urol 2018 Aug 17. Epub 2018 Aug 17.

Nationwide Children's Hospital, Department of Anesthesiology, 700 Children's Drive, Columbus, OH 43205, USA.

Introduction: Increasing concerns regarding potential negative effects of early use of inhalational and intravenous anesthetics on neurocognitive development have led to a growing interest in alternative forms of anesthesia in infants. The study institution's outcomes with spinal anesthesia (SA) for urologic surgery in infants aged less than 90 days are reported and their outcomes with a matched cohort of patients who underwent general anesthesia (GA) are compared.

Use of cystoscopic-guided laser ablation for treatment of unilateral ureterovesicular stenosis and secondary orthotopic ureterocele in a female dog.

J Am Vet Med Assoc 2018 Aug;253(4):463-469

CASE DESCRIPTION A 4-year-old spayed female Beagle was evaluated because of a 2-month history of intermittent pollakiuria, stranguria, dysuria, and abdominal pain. A diagnosis of bacterial cystitis was initially made, but clinical signs persisted despite appropriate antimicrobial treatment, so the dog was referred for further evaluation and treatment. CLINICAL FINDINGS Abdominal ultrasonography revealed a large, thin-walled, cystic structure in the urinary bladder at the level of the expected right ureterovesicular junction that communicated with the uniformly dilated right ureter.

The urologist and child hydronephrosis caused by ureteral anomalies.

Rom J Morphol Embryol 2018 ;59(1):197-201

Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy, University of Oradea, Romania; Department of Occupational Medicine, University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Craiova, Romania;

Congenital hydronephrosis caused by ureteral anomalies, like ureteral duplicity, megaureter, ureteral ectopy and ureterocele, must be differentiated from ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UJO) hydronephrosis and from the hydronephrosis caused by vesicoureteral reflux. These represent a differentiated branch of congenital abnormalities in children even if not so common, but this fact should not be disconsidered. Over a five years period, from 111 operated children in our Clinic, we performed 13 interventions for congenital hydronephrosis, 11 (84. Read More

Incidence and risk factors for positive urine culture at the time of pediatric urologic surgery.

Department of Pediatric Urology, Children's Hospital Colorado, 13123 East 16th Avenue, Box 463, Aurora, CO, 80045, USA.

Purpose: Urinary tract infections are relatively common in pediatric patients. Unrecognized bacteriuria at the time of urologic surgery puts patients at increased risk for perioperative complications. Many pediatric urologists obtain preoperative or intraoperative urine cultures prior to surgery, but data are lacking regarding rates and risk factors for positive intraoperative urine cultures.

Long-term Management of Ureterocele in Duplex Collecting Systems: Reconstruction Implications.

Purpose Of Review: Significant variance exists in the management of duplex collecting system ureteroceles (DSU). There is a great spectrum in classification, management, and surgical interventions. The practice of performing bladder level operations for vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) and trigonal anatomic distortion, either after ureterocele puncture or in a single setting, has come into question as to whether all DSU patients require it.

Multicystic renal dysplasia (MCRD) is the most common cause of abnormally enlarged kidney, diagnosed on antenatal ultrasound examination. It is an abnormality of the embryonic development in which the renal parenchyma is substituted by nonfunctioning renal tissue made up of cysts which do not communicate with each other. Vesicoureteric reflux (VUR), pelviureteric junction obstruction, vesicoureteric junction obstruction, and ureterocele are the most commonly seen abnormalities in contralateral kidney. Read More

Inclusion criteria were (1) ureterocele confirmed on detailed fetal ultrasound examination, (2) absence of additional fetal malformations, and (3) fetal intervention to decompress the ureterocele with local institutional review boards' approval. Data on sonographic follow-up, obstetrical, neonatal outcome, and postnatal evaluation were collected. Read More

"Watering Can" Ureterocele Puncture Technique Leads to Decreased Rates of De Novo Vesicoureteral Reflux and Subsequent Surgery With Durable Results.

Urology 2017 Oct 15;108:161-165. Epub 2017 Jun 15.

Department of Pediatric Urology, University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center and Children's Hospital of Oklahoma, Oklahoma City, OK.

Objective: To assess the outcomes of "watering can" ureterocele puncture (WCP), a technique previously associated with decreased incidence of de novo vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), as a durable option for management of ureteroceles and to determine the need for subsequent surgery for VUR following watering can puncture.

Materials And Methods: We retrospectively reviewed records of 55 consecutive endoscopic ureterocele procedures performed at our institution from 1999 to 2015. The WCP was performed using a holmium laser fiber to make 10-20 puncture holes through the ureterocele. Read More
