Contrast-enhanced voiding urosonography in the assessment of vesical-ureteral reflux: the time has come.

Radiol Med 2021 May 5. Epub 2021 May 5.

Section of Radiological Sciences, Department of Biomedical, Dental Sciences and Morphological and Functional Imaging, University of Messina, "G. Martino" Policlinic, Via Consolare Valeria 1, 98100, Messina, Italy.

Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is a pathological condition contradistinguished by monolateral or bilateral retrograde flow of urine from the bladder to the ureter and to the kidney. If not properly recognized and treated, VUR can potentially be associated to several complications such as recurrent infections and possible secondary scars with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Furthermore, it represents an important risk factor for nephrovascular hypertension. Read More

Antegrade endoscopic dilatation as an alternative approach to primary obstructive megaureter.

Cir Pediatr 2021 Apr 1;34(2):100-104. Epub 2021 Apr 1.

Interventional Radiology Department. La Paz University Hospital. Madrid (Spain).

Contrast-enhanced voiding urosonography, part 1: vesicoureteral reflux evaluation.

Pediatr Radiol 2021 Mar 31. Epub 2021 Mar 31.

Pediatric Ultrasound Center, Thessaloniki, Greece.

Contrast-enhanced voiding urosonography (ceVUS) is a well-established, sensitive and safe ultrasound (US) modality for detecting and grading vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) and urethral imaging in children. Nearly three decades of remarkable advances in US technology and US contrast agents have refined ceVUS's diagnostic potential. The recent approval of Lumason/SonoVue in the United States, Europe and China for pediatric intravesical applications marked the beginning of a new era for this type of contrast US imaging.

Comparison of Subureteral Endoscopic Injection of Dextranomer/Hyaluronic Acid and Lich-Gregoir Ureteral Reimplantation in the Treatment of Pediatric Primary Vesicoureteral Reflux: A Prospective Randomized Study.

J Laparoendosc Adv Surg Tech A 2021 Mar 22. Epub 2021 Mar 22.

Department of Urology, Faculty of Medicine, Al-Azhar University, Cairo, Egypt.

The gold standard of surgical intervention of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is open ureteral reimplantation with high success and low complication rates. However, in recent years, endoscopic injection, dextranomer/hyaluronic acid (Dx/HA), has become an effective therapy for VUR. It is noted that limited prospective randomized trials compare the different surgical techniques of especially endoscopic injection versus open procedures. Read More

Intrarenal Reflux in the Light of Contrast-Enhanced Voiding Urosonography.

Front Pediatr 2021 2;9:642077. Epub 2021 Mar 2.

University Hospital Split, Split, Croatia.

The aim of this study was to analyze the incidence of intrarenal reflux (IRR) among vesicoureteral refluxes (VURs), diagnosed by contrast-enhanced voiding urosonography (ceVUS), to define VURs which are positive to IRR and their locations in the kidney. Seventy patients with VURs, including 103 uretero-renal units (URUs) with VURs of grades II-V (37 URUs were excluded because of renal anomalies or absence of VUR) were examined with ceVUS due to recurrent febrile UTI or first febrile UTI accompanied by abnormalities on renal ultrasonography. Patients were examined on GE Logiq S8 ultrasound machine, using second generation of ultrasound contrast agent. Read More

Case report: The theory of post-ileocystoplasty spherical configuration in patients with low-capacity bladder.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2021 Apr 5;81:105731. Epub 2021 Mar 5.

Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Sumatera Utara - Haji Adam Malik General Hospital Medan, Jl. Bunga Lau No.17, Kemenangan Tani, Kec. Medan Tuntungan, Kota Medan, Sumatera Utara, 20136, Indonesia. Electronic address:

Introduction: Bladder augmentation can be performed by detubularization of the small or large intestine. A large capacity bladder is necessary to avoid frequent urination; thus, the ileal sac must be able to store the maximum volume of urine with relatively low pressure and the shortest length of the intestine. The acceptable pressure capacity should always be under ureteric pressure to avoid back pressure and kidney damage. Read More

Types of Parenchymal Changes Diagnosed on DMSA Scans of Kidneys Affected by Different Grades of Vesicoureteral Reflux.

Med Sci Monit 2021 Mar 1;27:e929617. Epub 2021 Mar 1.

Department of Pediatrics, University Hospital in Split, Split, Croatia.

BACKGROUND Renal parenchymal damage and scarring usually is associated with urinary tract infection (UTI), whereas the impact of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) on the kidneys is unclear. We aimed to compare kidneys with all grades of VUR (grades Io-V) and those without VUR by using direct radionuclide cystography, voiding cystourethrography, and findings from 99mTc-DMSA scintigraphy (DMSA scan). MATERIAL AND METHODS The present analysis included 253 renal ureteral units (RUU) from 129 children with VUR and recurrent UTI and children with a single febrile UTI associated with abnormal ultrasonographic findings.

Urinary tract imaging in infants with spina bifida: a selective approach to a baseline DMSA.

J Pediatr Urol 2021 Feb 11. Epub 2021 Feb 11.

School of Mathematics and Statistics, Ireland; University College Dublin, Ireland.

Introduction: There is no general agreement among paediatric urologists on how infants with spina bifida (SB) should be investigated after birth. Recently the EUA/ESPU guidelines have been published recommending a baseline DMSA scan in the first year of life and a Voiding Cystourethrogram (VCUG) or Videourodynamic (VUD) between the second and third month of life.

Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome of renal investigations in the first year of life in infants with SB to verify if an early DMSA scan is indicated in the management of this group of patients. Read More

Ureteral reimplantation aligned laparoscopically: Pneumovesicoscopic Politano-Leadbetter reimplantation in children.

J Pediatr Urol 2021 Feb 16. Epub 2021 Feb 16.

Ondokuz Mayıs University, School of Medicine, Department of Pediatric Surgery, Ondokuz Mayıs Üniversitesi Kurupelit Kampüsü, Atakum, Samsun, 55270, Turkey. Electronic address:

Introduction: Ureteroneocsytostomy is a well-established procedure for correction of certain ureterovesical conditions like vesicoureteral reflux and ureterevesical obstruction. Amazing developments in technology paved the way for minimally invasive surgery and conventional procedures are increasingly being performed minimal invasively during the recent decades. Although Politano-Leadbetter ureteroneocystostomy is an anatomical repair, lost its popularity against Cohen's technique as it is more challenging to perform and requires extravesical dissection which may increase the complication rates.

Contrast-enhanced voiding urosonography in the diagnosis of intrarenal reflux.

J Ultrasound 2021 Feb 26. Epub 2021 Feb 26.

Children's Hospital Zagreb, Ul. Vjekoslava Klaića 16, 10000, Zagreb, Croatia.

Purpose: Although contrast-enhanced urosonography (ceVUS) has shown capable diagnostic accuracy for the diagnosis of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) in children, the ability of ceVUS to detect intrarenal reflux (IRR) is considered limited. The purpose of our study is to assess the ability of ceVUS to detect IRR as well as its association with age, gender, and the grade of VUR.

Methods: This study included 5153 children who were referred to our clinic for ceVUS. Read More

Prevalence of high-risk bladder categorization with prenatal and postnatal myelomeningocele repair types.

Neurourol Urodyn 2021 03 19;40(3):829-839. Epub 2021 Feb 19.

Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, Texas Children's Hospital, Houston, Texas, USA.

Introduction: Urologic substudies of prenatal myelomeningocele (MMC) closure have focused primarily on continence without significant clinical benefit. Fetoscopic MMC repair (FMR) is a newer form of prenatal intervention and touts added benefits to the mother, but urological outcomes have yet to be analyzed. We set out to focus on bladder safety rather than continence and examined bladder outcomes with different prenatal MMC repairs (FMR and prenatal open [POMR]) and compared bladder-risk-categorization to traditional postnatal repair (PSTNR).
