Wang Shuaibin, Mu Haiqi, Feng Qin, Yu Haifeng
Suprapubic cystostomy is a widely employed procedure that is used to drain the bladder. Despite being a safe procedure, suprapubic cystostomy has been reported to present multiple intra- and postoperative complications. Serious and unusual complications can occur during changing of the suprapubic catheter (SPC) in patients with neuropathic bladder. In this work, we report an elderly patient with neuropathic bladder suffering from an unusual complication involving migration of the SPC into the ureter during changing of the SPC, leading to ureteric obstruction and left pyelonephritis...

PURPOSE: In this retrospective study, we aimed to investigate the prognostic effect of body mass index (BMI) in localized renal cell carcinoma (RCC) cases who underwent surgical treatment. Furthermore, the assessment of various patient and tumor characteristics and surgical methods on survival has been identified as additional targets. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Three hundred and eighty patients with localised, non-metastatic, unilateral RCC who underwent radical or partial nephrectomy in our clinic between January 2007 and December 2016 were enrolled in this study...

A 40-year-old man was referred to our urology clinic due to vague abdominal pain and hematuria. Computed tomography (CT) without contrast material visualized an ectopic kidney in the left iliac fossa with a complete staghorn stone. Under general anesthesia, operation was done in supine position with a gentle lateral elevation on the right side. The surgeon stands on the right side of the patient. First, a 12 mm port was inserted at the umbilicus using the Hasson technique. After creation of pneumoperitoneum, operation was done by three 5 mm trocars were arranges as paraumbilical, the point between umbilicus and inguinal canal at left and right side...

PURPOSE: Hypospadias is a common developmental anomaly of the male external genitalia. In previous studies conducted on West European, Californian, and Han Chinese populations the relationship between polymorphic variants of the diacylglycerol kinase kappa (DGKK) gene and hypospadias have been reported. The aim was to study the possible associations between polymorphic variants of the DGKK gene and hypospadias using an independent sample of the Polish population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ten single nucleotide polymorphisms in DGKK, which were reported to have an impact on the risk of hypospadias in other populations, were genotyped using high-resolution melting curve analysis in a group of 166 boys with isolated anterior (66%) and middle (34%) forms of hypospadias and 285 properly matched controls without congenital anomalies...

Malignant ureteral obstruction is usually caused by an extrinsic compression including intra-abdominal cancers. One of the treatment modalities decompressing the obstruction is applying stent to open the ureter. Metallic Stent is an effective instrument which we used for the first time in Iran in our patient who had a metastatic colon cancerwith a single kidney and we used a Novel, Double-Layered, Coated, Self-expandable Metallic Mesh Stent (Uventa Stent) to keep the ureter open. After six months of follow up with ureteroscopy, there was no obstruction any more...

PURPOSE: To evaluate whether an artifical neural network helps to diagnose any chromosomal abnormalities in azoospermic males. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The data of azoospermic males attending to a tertiary academic referral center were evaluated retrospectively. Height, total testicular volume, follicle stimulating hormone, luteinising hormone, total testosterone and ejaculate volume of the patients were used for the analyses.

PURPOSE: Low-dose non-enhanced computed tomography (LDCT) has been shown to provide low radiation exposure with proper diagnostic accuracy compared to standard dose non-enhanced computed tomography (SDCT) in patients with renal colic. The goal of our study is to estimate the accuracy of LDCT and SDCT interpretation by emergency medicine residents who primarily treated patients with renal colic. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty sample images of both LDCT and SDCT from renal colic patients were extracted from January 2013 to December 2015 in a tertiary teaching hospital...

PURPOSE: As with other areas, there have been many efforts for minimally invasive surgery in varicocelectomy. We present our initial experience with laparoscopic varicocelectomy with a two-port scarless periumbilical mini-incision. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study enrolled 18 patients who underwent laparoscopic varicocelectomy with a twoportscarless periumbilical mini-incision from February 2012 to April 2013. The laparoscopic varicocelectomy was performed using two 5-mm ports at periumbilical sites in skin creases...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the intraoperative pain score of patients who undergo percutaneous nephrolithotomy under spinal anesthesia and to evaluate surgeons' and patients' convenience with this type of anesthesia. MATERIALS AND METHODS: PCNL cases who were performed by two endourology fellows under spinal anesthesia during June to July 2014 were included. Spinal anesthesia was performed using injection of 0.25mg/kg bupivacaine 0.5% in the intrathecal space. All procedures were performed with the patient in the prone position...

PURPOSE: Enuresis can cause loss of self-esteem in children, change relations with family and friends, and decrease the school success. This study was conducted to determine the prevalence of urinary incontinence (UI) in school children aged between 11-14 years and identify the emotions and social problems of enuretic children. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A mixed methods approach was used on a group of students who reported UI by combining quantitative data from school population-based cross-sectional design with qualitative data using in-depth interview techniques...
