despite fluctuations, the prevalence of nephrolithiasis has significantly increased during the last decades in industrialized nations worldwide (1 to 15 %), which has a significant impact on the cost of healthcare. This increased prevalence is mainly explained by diet modifications. Environmental, metabolic and genetic factors may also influence the formation of kidney stones. As a consequence, the medical management of this disease is preferentially multidisciplinary and involves urologists, nephrologists, radiologists, biologists and dietitians...

INTRODUCTION: It is generally advised to have a safety guidewire (SGW) present during ureteroscopy (URS) to manage possible complications. However, it increases the strenght needed to insert and retract the endoscope during the procedure, and, currently, there is a lack of solid data supporting the need for SGW in all procedures. We reviewed the literature about SGW utilization during URS. METHOD: A review of the literature was conducted through April 2017 using PubMed, Ovid, and The Cochrane Library databases to identify relevant studies...

RELEVANCE: Acute pyelonephritis is known to be the most complicated and severe urinary tract infection occurring in all age groups and accounting for 14% of all kidney diseases. The generally recognized standard antibiotic therapy cannot completely prevent the progression of the disease to its chronic form after relief of its acute manifestations thus leading to a high incidence of relapses. The aim of our study was to investigate the spectrum of uropathogens and their antibiotic sensitivity in acute obstructive pyelonephritis...

OBJECTIVE: The Lumenis(®) High-power Holmium Laser (120H) has a unique modulated pulse mode, Moses™ technology. Moses technology modulates the laser pulse to separate the water (vapor bubble), then deliver the remaining energy through the bubble. Proprietary laser fibers were designed for the Moses technology. Our aim was to compare stone lithotripsy with and without the Moses technology. METHODS: We designed a questionnaire for the urologist to fill immediately after each ureteroscopy in which the Lumenis 120H was used...

REVIEW
Mohamed A Elkoushy, Sero Andonian
Patients presenting with nephrolithiasis often undergo repeated imaging studies before, during, and after management. Considering the significant risk of stone recurrence in primary stone-formers, repeated imaging studies are not uncommon. Cumulative effects of ionizing radiation exposure from various imaging studies could potentially increase the risk for developing cataracts and solid malignancies in urolithiasis patients. Therefore, practitioners planning or performing imaging studies with ionizing radiation are compelled to keep radiation exposure to humans and the environment as low as possible, thus strictly adhering to the ALARA (As Low as Reasonably Achievable) principles...

Background: Actinomycosis is a condition in which Actinomyces, a normal component of the oral and gastrointenstial flora, becomes pathogenic in the setting of damaged tissue, leading to widespread tissue destruction across fascial planes. Prior literature describing this condition is rare, particularly cases involving the retroperitoneum. In this study, we report a case of retroperitoneal actinomycosis caused by an infected, obstructing ureteral stone. Case Presentation: A 48-year-old woman with a history of substance abuse, malnutrition, and gastric bypass presented to the emergency room with a 3-week history of abdominal pain and fevers...

Urolithiasis is a well-known and common late complication in patients with urinary diversion. Patients without urinary diversion lead to symptoms such as hematuria and ureteral colic, whereas stones in patients with urinary diversion tend to be asymptomatic and are often diagnosed incidentally during staging examinations of oncologic diseases. We report the case of a 64-year-old male patient with a lower pole kidney stone and a stone in the ileal ureter substitution. He presented with diffuse abdominal and left-sided flank pain...

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the functional and morphological recovery of solitary kidneys following the relief of obstruction by two different approaches. Data of 65 adult patients with acute renal failure in obstructed solitary kidney were evaluated. Depending on the type of emergent decompression procedure while 34 patients were treated with a double J stent placement only 31 patients underwent ureteroscopic lithotripsy with double J stent placement. Following these procedures, in addition to the amount of excreted urine during the first 24 h, changes in the serum creatinine levels and the degree of hydronephrosis were noted and evaluated during the first week of follow-up after intervention...

A 69-year-old man with a psoriatic arthritis treated with infliximab for 1 month presented to the urology clinic for lower urinary tract symptoms. He was found to have a new diagnosis of elevated creatinine. Computed tomography of the abdomen and pelvis revealed bilateral severe hydronephrosis with abnormal soft tissue thickening of the right renal pelvis and proximal ureter. Bilateral stents were placed after ureteroscopy demonstrated no abnormalities. A computed tomography-guided biopsy of the peri-ureteral lesions revealed fibroadipose tissue with sclerosis and extensive chronic inflammation consistent with retroperitoneal fibrosis...
