Laparoscopic ureterolithotomy and retrograde flexible ureteroscopy-assisted transperitoneal laparoscopic ureteroureterostomy for a huge ureteropelvic junction stone and multiple small renal stones: A CARE-compliant case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 Jul;100(28):e26655

Department of Urology, China Medical University Hospital, Taichung, Taiwan.

Rationale: Concurrent kidney and ureteral stones are always complicated and a clinical challenge. Improvements in endoscopic equipment have led to the widespread adoption of retrograde intrarenal surgery, which has a good stone clearance rate. On the other hand, laparoscopic ureterolithotomy (LUL) has been reported to be non-inferior to retrograde flexible ureteroscopy in stone-free rate and the need for axillary procedures, and to have a significantly lower rate of post-operative sepsis compared to retrograde flexible ureteroscopy.

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

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

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 Sep;99(39):e22293

Department of Urology, Institute of Urology, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu, Sichuan.

Rationale: The indwelling ureteral stents is a common procedure in routine urological practice. The double-J (D-J) stent is the most common type of stents used and is indicated mainly for short-term urinary drainage and prevention of obstruction and infection. However, prolonged indwelling stents may result in disastrous complications, such as hematuria, infection, encrustation, and stone formation. Read More
