INTRODUCTION: Urinary lithiasis is a recurrent disease defined by the presence of calculi in the urinary tract. Most urinary calculi have as a major component calcium oxalate which occurs mainly in two crystalline forms: Calcium oxalate monohydrate (whewellite) and calcium oxalate dihydrate (weddellite). The target behind, this work is to study the inhibiting effect of the calcium oxalate's crystallization by the extract of the Ammi visnaga and the Punica granatum. METHODS: The inhibition of crystallization has been studied in vitro with both the absence and the presence of the different concentrations of the extracts of the two plants...

Primary hyperoxaluria (PH) is a very rare genetic disorder; it is characterized by total or partial deficiency of the enzymes related to the metabolism of glyoxylate, with an overproduction of calcium oxalate that is deposited in different organs, mainly the kidney, leading to recurrent lithiasis, nephrocalcinosis and end stage renal disease (ESRD). In patients with ESRD that receive kidney transplantation alone, the disease has a relapse of 100%, with graft loss in a high percentage of patients in the first 5 years of transplantation...

Salivary gland lithiasis affects 1 to 2% of adults. The submandibular glands are concerned in 87% of cases. An association between kidney and salivary lithiases, although often mentioned, has rarely been observed. We relate an exceptional case of parotid and submandibular cystine sialolithiasis with kidney cystine lithiasis in a patient with cystinuria. Cystine lithiasis occurs in 1% of kidney lithiasis cases. The purpose of this article is to discuss the arguments, diagnosis, and therapeutic attitude in front of salivary cystine lithiasis...

ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE: Crateva nurvala stem bark is commonly used in Ayruveda in treatment of many renal injuries, e.g., urinary lithiasis, diuretic and nephroprotective. However, its protective effect against renal ischaemia/reperfusion, the major cause of acute kidnea injury, has never been studied. Moreover, no comprehensive chemical profiling of its extracts was recorded. AIM OF THE STUDY: Assessment of the protective effect of both extracts against renal ischaemia/reperfusion and elucidation of the possible mechanism of action...

Stone surgery is one of oldest surgical practices undertaken by man. Hippocrates refused to let his followers "cut for the stone" and it was only in February 1980, when the first human trial of shock wave therapy on a renal stone was performed with success that a new era in minimally invasive treatment (surgery) for stones was opened up and this condemnation was finally resolved in the Hippocratic Oath. Endoscopy, using natural orifices, supported by anaesthesia, incremented by technology and with access to all points along the urinary tract, began by competing with ESWL, but is now the treatment of choice in most cases...

Whilst endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is being practiced on increasingly older patients, its benefits have not been well studied. This study assessed the clinical benefit of ERCP for subjects aged 75 and over, including follow-up at 3 months of geriatric functional parameters and lifestyle. This is a prospective mono-centric, cohort study. All patients aged 75 and over receiving ERCP were enrolled and monitored for a period of 3 months. We recorded 53 inclusions between November 1st 2014 to 31 May 2015...

Hematospermia is defined by the presence of blood in the semen typically occurring in men younger than 40 years of age. Symptoms can occur due to a multitude of reasons, but are usually benign and self-limiting, requiring no additional treatment or evaluation. Despite this, the condition often impairs quality of life due to associated anxiety and must be taken seriously by the patient and the physician, particularly if recurrent, refractory, and painful. The etiology of hematospermia can be classified into inflammatory, infectious, lithiasis, cystic, obstructive, tumoral, vascular, traumatic, iatrogenic, and systemic origin...

Bladder exstrophy is a malformation characterized by subumbilical anterior abdominal wall and anterior bladder wall deishence. It affects nearly 30.000-40.000 births per year, with a higher prevalence in boys. External continent urinary diversion creates a long-term outcome. However, it is not devoid of complications. We report the case of a 30-year old female patient who had undergone cystectomy with bladder replaced with ileo-caecal segment for bladder exstrophy 13 years earlier. She was followed up for 5 years and then lost to follow up...

INTRODUCTION: Telephone consultations are part of a strategy to allow access to medical expertise. Telephone consultations have been fee-for-services benefits in the province of Quebec since 2012.(1) Recent studies have shown that adequate communication is one of the most common means to prevent disability and death.(2) We sought to determine the characteristics of phone consultations made to a tertiary centre's urologists and to characterize their experience. METHODS: We performed a prospective study using all billing receipts filed by 15 academic urologists for phone consultations received during a 10-month period...

Primary hyperoxaluria (PH) is a metabolic liver disease with an autosomal recessive inheritance that results in oxalate overproduction that cannot be metabolized by the liver. Urinary excretion of oxalate results in lithiasis and nephrocalcinosis leading to a progressive loss of renal function that often requires renal replacement therapy despite medical treatment. Type 1 PH is the most common form and is due to a deficiency in the alanine-glycolate aminotransferase enzyme found in hepatic peroxisomes. Therefore, a liver-kidney simultaneous transplant (LKST) is the definitive treatment for end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients...

Urolithiasis is a significant social and financial problem. According to contemporary literature data, 1-5% of the global population suffers from urolithiasis. The prevalence of this disease is about 10% of the population of the Republic of Moldova. Scientific and practical researches in the field of urology, and especially those devoted to renal lithiasis, focus on the diagnosis and treatment process, giving little importance to the cause of formation, metabolic disturbances, and especially to prophylaxis and metaphylaxis of the disease recurrence...
