Modified staged repair of bladder exstrophy: a strategy to prevent penile ischemia while maintaining advantage of the complete primary repair of bladder exstrophy.

J Pediatr Urol 2018 Sep 25. Epub 2018 Sep 25.

Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, Sidra Medical and Research Center, Doha, Qatar. Electronic address:

Introduction: Penile ischemic injury is a reported catastrophic complication after complete primary repair of exstrophy (CPRE). Aiming to improve the bladder exstrophy-epispadias repair outcomes, the study institution adopted a modified staged exstrophy repair to incorporate the advantages of CPRE by avoiding concurrent epispadias repair and adding bilateral ureteral re-implantation and bladder neck tailoring (staged repair of bladder exstrophy with bilateral ureteral re-implantation [SRBE-BUR]) at the initial repair. It was hypothesized that such modifications minimize penile complications and prevent upper tract deterioration while enhancing bladder resistance and consequent capacity. Read More

Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, Al Wakra Hospital, Hamad Medical Corporation, Al Wakra, Qatar.

BACKGROUND Urinary tract candida infection can be due either to hematogenous dissemination of the organism or a retrograde infection. In debilitated or immunosuppressed septic patients, who have upper urinary tract obstruction with renal filling defect, fungal infection should be considered. We report on a patient with sepsis and renal fungal ball who was treated with percutaneous nephrostomy and intravenous antifungal agent, but the patient did not respond so instillation of fluconazole through nephrostomy was given.

Identification of in the urine of an individual with spinal cord injury and augmentation cystoplasty using 16S sequencing: copathogen or innocent bystander?

Spinal Cord Ser Cases 2018 21;4:85. Epub 2018 Sep 21.

7Division of Urology, Children's National Health System, Washington, DC USA.

Introduction: People with neuropathic bladder (NB) secondary to spinal cord injury (SCI) are at risk for multiple genitourinary complications, the most frequent of which is urinary tract infection (UTI). Despite the high frequency with which UTI occurs, our understanding of the role of urinary microbes in health and disease is limited. In this paper, we present the first prospective case study integrating symptom reporting, urinalysis, urine cultivation, and 16S ribosomal ribonucleic acid (rRNA) sequencing of the urine microbiome.

JMM Case Rep 2018 Jul 5;5(7):e005157. Epub 2018 Jul 5.

Case Western Reserve, University School of Medicine, Cleveland, OH 44106, USA.

Introduction: Although more often recognized as a culprit in female urinary tract infection, coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) can cause severe genitourinary infections in men. While positive blood cultures with CoNS are usually thought to be contaminants, in the setting of a severe genito-urinary infection they can represent true infection.

Case Presentation: We present the case of a 70-year-old male without a central venous catheter or urinary catheter who developed bloodstream infection secondary to epididymo-orchitis. Read More
