PURPOSE: To compare anthropometric data (body mass index [BMI]) in patients without lithiasis to patients with symptomatic simple cholelithiasis or choledocholithiasis. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed data from 147 patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy between 2001-2015. Complete growth data from 98 patients was compared with anthropometric data from the population of the Czech Republic and a control group (BMI of 100 consecutive patients without biliary stones in abdominal ultrasound who were admitted to a surgical department for suspected appendicitis)...

Background: Accurate preoperative diagnosis of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) among patients with imagiologically intrahepatic lithiasis (IHL) complicated by mass is crucial for timely and effective surgical intervention. The aim of the present study was to develop a nomogram to identify ICC associated with IHL (IHL-ICC). Patients and methods: Data were obtained from a total of 252 consecutive patients with IHL complicated by mass. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was conducted to identify the clinicopathologic and imagiological characteristics that were potentially associated with ICC...

Background: At present, the percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL) is performed both in supine and in prone position. The aim of this paper is to describe an innovative position during PCNL. Methods: We describe a supine position. The patient's legs are slightly abducted at the hips. The thorax is laterally tilted (inclination 30°-35°) and kept in the right position by one or two gel pads placed between the scapula and the vertebrae. External genitalia can be accessed at any time, so that it is always possible to use flexible instruments in the upper urinary tract...

INTRODUCTION: Military people are inapt for presence of urinary stones. In this specific population, the treatment of stones is even more aggressive than for the general population without recommendation. The final decision about aptitude is the responsibility of the military doctor. Whereas, ureteroscopy has its place there and must done by any urologist. METHODS: The purpose of this study was to estimate the results of treatments by ureteroscopy in this population...

Background: Hypercalciuria might be revealed during the differential diagnosis of hematuria accompanying renal lithiasis (RL). In spite of this, diagnostic accuracy of calcium urinary excretion might be affected by incomplete 24-hour urine collections. In the present study, the diagnostic utility of calcium/creatinine (ICaCre) index for determining hypercalciuria associated with non-glomerular hematuria (NGH) and RL was assessed. Method: ICaCre (mg/mg) index was calculated from calcium (mmol/l) and creatinine (µmol/l) concentrations in an aliquot from a 24-hour urine collection in 169 children and adolescents with NGH or RL...

This study reports the clinical and biological signs, as well as the morphological aspect and the chemical composition of the calculus during the biliary stones. The study population consisted of 31 patients with an average age of 49 years (30 women and one man) with biliary lithiasis and who had cholecystectomy. Hepatic colic and epigastralgia were the most evocative clinical signs. The calculus were pigmentary (n=6), cholesterolic and mostly single (n=18), and mixed (n=6) and one infectious multiple lithiasis...

Phyllanthus niruri (P.niruri) or stone breaker is a plant commonly used to reduce stone risk, however, clinical studies on this issue are lacking. OBJECTIVE: To prospectively evaluate the effect of P. niruri on the urinary metabolic parameters of patients with urinary lithiasis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We studied 56 patients with kidney stones <10mm. Clinical, metabolic, and ultrasonography assessment was conducted before (baseline) the use of P. niruri infusion for 12-weeks (P...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of the laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE) and laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) with preoperative endoscopic sphincterotomy (pre-EST) and LC for concomitant gallstones and common bile duct (CBD) stones. BACKGROUND: It remains controversial whether LCBDE+LC is better than pre-EST+LC for gallstones and CBD stones. METHODS: A specific search of online databases was performed from January 2006 to October 2017...

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a well-known procedure for the treatment of most gallbladder diseases. Sometimes, it could be very difficult, in the presence of aberrations regarding the cystic duct, the cystic artery, or the gallbladder itself. Fluorescence laparoscopy using indocyanine green could be very useful for all the situations of anatomy aberrations.

PURPOSE: Although the worldwide percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) practice patterns determined via a survey sent to members of the Endourological Society have been published, differences in PCNL practice patterns among Latin American urologists based on endourological or lithiasis training have not been published. To determine the PCNL practice patterns among Latin American urologists with and without training in endourology. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The SurveyMonkey® web platform was used to develop a 27- item survey on PCNL for the treatment of renal stones, and the survey was sent via e-mail and other electronic media to 2000 urologists from 15 Latin American countries...

Allograft lithiasis is a rare urologic complication of renal transplantation (RT). Our aim is to present our experience with minimally invasive surgical treatment of allograft lithiasis in our series of live-donor renal transplant recipients. In a retrospective analysis of 3758 consecutive live-donor RTs performed in our center between November 2009 and January 2017, the results of minimally invasive surgery for the treatment of renal graft lithiasis diagnosed at follow-up were evaluated. Twenty-two (0.58%) patients underwent minimally invasive surgery for renal graft lithiasis...

BACKGROUND: Various genetic and environmental factors are involved in urolithiasis. The 2 most common metabolic abnormalities are the increase in urinary calcium and low urinary citrate excretion. The ratio calculated between the concentrations of both substances is a good risk marker for the formation of calcium stones. OBJECTIVES: To determine whether the risk of urinary calcium stone formation changes throughout the day in the same patient. METHODS: We studied 56 children (23V, 33M) to check if they had prelithiasis...

Glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor agonists (GLP-1RA) are the newest treatment for diabetes mellitus (DM). These drugs can down-regulate fasting glucose more than oral drugs and lead to more constant glucose levels compared to regular insulin. Acute pancreatitis is a serious condition that may have a fatal outcome. It has been shown that long term and high doses of GLP-1RA can cause pancreatic changes in animals, but no connection has been proven in humans. We present the case of a 67 years old man with DM treated with oral drugs for 10 years until 3 months before, when GLP-1RA was added...

AIM: Biliary lithiasis is common in most western countries. Symptomatic patients will also have choledocholithiasis in 10% of the cases. For patients with intermediate probability of CBD stones, the recommended imaging studies are endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) or MRCP. This study aims to identify early factors that can be used as predictors for the presence of CBD stones, and by that to find which patient should undergo ERCP without an early EUS. METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort study including all patients who underwent EUS for suspected choledocholithiasis at the Soroka University Medical Center (SUMC) in the years 2009-2014...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive procedures have become the standard option for treatment of urinary stones; the use of more invasive techniques is not a common practice currently. This emergent technology is not always available and laparoscopy is the alternative option. There are few reports of laparoscopic management for urinary lithiasis in pediatric patients. This study is about the use of laparoscopic surgery combined with pyeloscopy as a feasible first-line treatment for pediatric urolithiasis in renal and proximal ureteral locations...

Background and study aims:  Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC) in patients with complex surgically-altered anatomy (SAA) is technically demanding and has limitations. Developments in EUS-guided procedures allow alternative approaches for patients with altered gastrointestinal anatomy and biliary lithiasis. Patients and methods:  Single-center, retrospective review of prospectively entered patients with SAA who underwent EUS-guided hepaticogastrostomy (HGS) followed by an interval antegrade endoscopic clearance of biliary lithiasis...
