A Comparative Evaluation of Ramosetron with Ondansetron for the Prevention of Postoperative Nausea and Vomiting in Patients Undergoing Urological Procedures.

Anesth Essays Res 2017 Jan-Mar;11(1):78-83

Department of Anaesthesiology and Critical Care, Sher-I-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences, Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir, India.

Background: Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) is a common problem causing distress to patients in the postoperative period. Younger age, gynecological surgeries, laparoscopic surgeries, female gender, volatile anesthetics, increased duration of anesthesia, and postoperative opioid use are associated with increased incidence of PONV.

Aim: The present study was conducted to study the efficacy of ramosetron and its comparison with ondansetron in the prevention of PONV in patients undergoing pyelolithotomy, pyeloplasty, and upper ureterolithotomy. Read More

Minimal access surgery in the management of pediatric urolithiasis.

Transl Pediatr 2016 Oct;5(4):262-265

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Hospital Lenval, Nice, France.

Background: In contrast to adult patients, a relatively large number of open surgical procedures are still needed in the treatment of urolithiasis in children. Since almost all open surgical techniques may be reproduced by minimal access surgery (MAS), there is a rationale to apply the latter in the management of pediatric urolithiasis. Our study aimed to assess the feasibility and outcome of MAS in the treatment of pediatric urinary calculi. Read More

The future of ureteroscopy.

Minerva Urol Nefrol 2016 Dec 19;68(6):592-597. Epub 2016 Oct 19.

Department of Urologic Sciences, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada -

Open ureterolithotomy and pyelolithotomy used to be first line therapy for treating kidney and ureteral stones. With the advent of shockwave lithotripsy, open stone surgery became less prevalent, but once ureteroscopy became more prevalent, open stone surgery became all but extinct. Advances in smaller, more flexible endoscopes and improvements in intracorporeal lithotripters, ureteroscopy has become a mainstay of therapy for kidney stones. Read More
