In this review, we analyze the etiopathogenic principles of urinary lithiasis formation. In the kidney, calcifications that may cause renal lithiasis are produced as a consequence of processes that injury the urothelium at the papilla and Bellini's ducts. With the improvement of imaging techniques, mainly micro CT scan, it is possible to detect them and we may be able to anticipate to the formation of lithiasis. As we well know, there are different factors that influence the formation of the calculi depending on their composition...

Renal lithiasis is one of the most common disorders in modern society, constituting an important health problem that associates a great economic burden. The nature of stone disease varies according to age and sex, being also influenced by dietary and lifestyle factors, and climatic variations among others. In spite of the advances made in the management of this pathology, it continues being a disease with a high recurrence rate. In recent years, several studies have pointed out that its prevalence is rising especially in developed countries...

INTRODUCTION: Nephrolitiasis, once considered an adult disease, has become increasingly prevalent in children, with na increase from 6% to 10 % annually in past 25 years. Kidney stones in pediatric population can result from metabolic diseases in up to 50% of children affected. Other factors associated with litiasis are infection, dietary factors, and anatomic malformations of urinary tract. Standard treatment procedures for pediatric population are similar to adult population. Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), ureterorenoscopy (URS), percutaneous nepfrolithotomy (PCNL), as well as laparoscopic and retroperitoneoscopic approaches can be indicated in selected cases...

UNLABELLED: Endoscopic treatment of the bile duct diseases is possible thanks to the ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangio pancreatography), nevertheless, it is not free of complications.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: An observational retrospective study was done in the Gastroenterology Department of the Hospital Guillermo Almenara Irigoyen in Lima, Peru, from March 2002 to June 2005...

PURPOSE: The primary vesicoureteral reflux (PVUR) is the most common urologic pathology during childhood and affects from 1 to 3% of newborn. It causes acute pyelonephritis (APN) and renal damage in addition to hospital visits with high economic and social costs. Nowadays the endoscopic treatment (ETR) seems to be the most suitable one for the reflux, due to its lower biological cost and its good results. We report our experience in the endoscopic treatment of the primary vesicoureteral reflux (ETR) in Murcia Pediatric Hospital from 1998 to 2007...

We report a case of vesico-urethral litiasis secondary to foreign body (gauze) calcificated, left in prostatic cell during prostate open surgery of performed twelve years ago. In the related literature we observe that most of foreign urinals bodies are secondary to the introduction through the urethra of objects with autoerotic finality in normal patients or more often with psychiatric disorders, and only a small proportion are of iatrogenic origin, mainly in the last ten years.

In the second middle of the XVI century lived in Arnedillo Juan and Francisco Somovilla, booths "maesse". The names of his wives were Anna Garcia and Iomar de Oña. The brothers of Juan and Anna were Mardia, Diego baptised on 20 of june of 1566, and Iñigo. Juan Somovilla passes away on 22 of December of 1574. His brother made the testament. We think that Juan was the surgeon that we contracted by Felipe II, instead of Francisco. Francisco Díaz talked about Arnedillo, as an important thermal baths in the treatment of the kidney diseases, in his text...

INTRODUCTION: In November of 1998, the Spanish Association of Urology decides to carry out a study on the lithotripsy in Spain, through the Group of Work in Lithiasis Urinary, with the objective of knowing the n(o) and distribution of Units and the real situation of the extracorporeal litotripsy for shock waves, in connection with other complementary methods or therapeutic alternatives. METHODOLOGY: We remit to all the Units of Lithotripsy a record of collection of data: Characteristic of the unit, no...

Presentation of one case of scrotal hernia in a man of 64 years old patient. Diagnosed by cistography and ultrasound and treated by herniorraphy and posterior transuretral litolaplaxy of a vesical litiasis and RTU of prostate. Postoperative urography showed normal vesical morphology.

A series of 48 patients with hydronephrosis (mean age 31 yrs.) underwent on Anderson-Hynes pyeloplasty. Assessment was carried out in 30 pts. after a mean observation time of 90 months, with a minimum 5 years follow-up. Clinical examination, laboratory investigations, renal ultrasonography, urography and renal scan were performed pre-operatively and at follow-up. There was one patient with evidence of stenosis in the ureteropelvic junction; one patient developed urinary leakage post-operatively and required surgical correction...

OBJECTIVE: Cystic fibrosis (CF) has undergone substantial epidemiological changes. The life expectancy of CF patients and the proportion of affected adults are rising because of advances in diagnosis and treatment. In order to find out more about our current situation, we sent an anonymous questionnaire to all affected members of the Catalonian Association of CF. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The questionnaire was sent to 180 patients and their parents asking for information about demographical aspects, diagnosis, pulmonary function, microbiological data, complications, treatment, number of medical visits to CF centers, personal, social and professional development, and the degree of satisfaction with the medical care received...

The treatment of ureteral lithiasis has undergone a revolution since the arrival of new techniques offering different therapeutical choices for which time is gradually elucidating the indications for each of the new procedures; although, to a large extent, a degree of controversy still persists. This paper reviews the different methods for ureteral lithiasis; spontaneous ejection and medical treatment, surgery, early endoscopic manoeuvres, backward and forward urethroscopy and, finally, extracorporeal lithority...

The case histories of 1200 patients admitted to our hospital over a 20 month period were reviewed to determine the degree, frequency and cause of dissociated cholestasis as a biological syndrome. Patients were divided into two groups: group I with 80 cases, included all patients whose gamma-GT levels were more than 30 mU/ml and serum-bilirubin less than 1.2 mg/ml, with alkaline phosphatase levels between 90-180 mU/ml. Group II included those with alkaline phosphatase levels higher than 180 mU/ml (57 cases)...

On the basis of a series of 9 patients (12 renal units) gathered over 19 years, the authors analyze the current possibilities of treatment of cystine lithiasis. They first describe the characteristics of this litiasis, which is rare but serious, being naturally prone to recurrence because it is caused by a genetic defect. The development of extracorporeal lithotripsy raised great hopes for the treatment of this lithiasis, but it was soon realized that cystine strones were hard to break. However, even the mere fragmentation of the stones improves the dissolving action of the various drugs proposed to modify the pH of urine...

Cistin-lisinuria is not a unfrequent etiology of lithiasis in children. Six patients have been studied as well as their families, being a total of 45 patients. Lithiasis was present in ten of our patients, and hyperaminoaciduria, without lithiasis in ten, affecting in both cases (with or without litiasis) either all the four amynoacide (cystine, lysine, arginine and ornithine) or only one or two of them. Authors have not found any correlation between clearance of cystine and the presence or absence of lithiasis; on the other hand the best index to correlate the presence of lithiasis is to reach a value, equal or superior to 300 mgr of cystine excreted in the urine per 1 gr of creatinine excreted in urine...
