Background: Vaginal stones are rare and often unknown entities. Most urologists may never see a case in their careers. Case Presentation: We present the case of a 34-year-old bedridden Caucasian woman with mental and physical disabilities who presented with a large primary vaginal calculus, which, surprisingly, had remained undiagnosed until the patient suffered a right renal colic caused by a ureteral stone. The vagina was completely filled and a digital examination was not possible. For this reason, the stone was removed using surgical pliers with some maneuvering...

The present study aimed to assess the diagnostic value of 64-slice spiral computed tomography (CT) imaging of the urinary tract during the excretory phase for urinary tract obstruction. CT imaging of the urinary tract during the excretory phase was performed in 46 patients that had been diagnosed with urinary tract obstruction by B-mode ultrasound imaging or clinical manifestations. It was demonstrated that out of the 46 patients, 18 had pelvic and ureteral calculi, 12 cases had congenital malformations, 3 had ureteral stricture caused by urinary tract infection and 13 cases had malignant tumors of the urinary tract...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical treatment of pediatric kidney stones has changed dramatically in recent years because of the miniaturization of surgical instruments and the availability of intracorporeal lithotripters. The retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) technique is nowadays considered an effective and safe procedure but studies in very young children are lacking and use of a ureteral access sheath (UAS) has also been debated. OBJECTIVE: To assess safety and efficacy of RIRS using UAS in children weighing < 20 kg...

Objectives The objective was to identify clinical or ultrasonographic results associated with ureteral obstruction or outcome in cats with azotaemia. Methods This was a retrospective cross-sectional study of cats with azotaemia (serum creatinine >180 μmol/l) that had ultrasonography of the urinary tract, ultrasound images available for review and received treatment for azotaemia. Cats with pre-renal azotaemia or urethral obstruction were excluded. Associations between clinical and ultrasonographic results and the dependent variables 'tentative diagnosis of ureteral obstruction', 'pyelography positive for ureteral obstruction' and 'death in hospital' were tested using binary logistic regression...

We describe our 'Tips and tricks' of ureteroscopy and lasertripsy (URSL) for paediatric ureteric calculi. All regional referrals directed to the paediatric urologist are discussed in a formal stone multidisciplinary team (MDT) meeting with urologists, radiologists, and biochemical pathologist. A paediatric urologist (SG) and an experienced adult endourologist (BS) do these stone procedures jointly as a twin-surgeon team approach for each patient.

Background: Drainage of any deep seated abscess often requires placement of catheters along with other conservative measures. These catheters are removed when the drainage volume reduces to clinically insignificant levels. However, if left in situ, there are potential complications. One such complication necessitating additional surgical procedure is highlighted in this case report. Malecot's catheter and children may be more at risk for such a complication. Case Presentation: A 7-year-old girl presented with recurrent episodes of right flank pain associated with high-grade fever with chills for the last 5 months and right perinephric drain in situ...

Introduction: Flexible ureteroscopy (fURS) is an endoscopic procedure for the minimally invasive treatment of ureteral and renal calculi. Due to improvements in technique and ureteroscopic instrumentation over the past two decades, complications associated with URS are infrequent. However, in the event of an unexpected device malfunction or failure, the operating surgeon must employ prompt, resolute decision-making to resolve any intraoperative complications and avoid significant injury to the kidney or ureter...

INTRODUCTION: Ureteroscopic laser lithotripsy is becoming the most commonly utilized treatment for patients with urinary calculi. The Holmium:YAG (yttrium aluminum garnet) laser is integral to the operation and is the preferred flexible intracorporeal lithotrite. In recent years, there has been increasing interest in examining the effect of varying the laser settings on the effectiveness of stone treatment. Herein, we review the two primary laser treatment approaches: dusting and fragmentation with extraction...

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...

OBJECTIVE: Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) represents one of the most frequently used methods to treat urinary tract calculi. However, sometimes we do not obtain the fragmentation expected. The aim of this study is to evaluate the parameters that may influence ESWL final results, developing a classification for better patient's selection and outcome optimization. METHODS: 270 patients with renal or ureteral stones were retrospectively reviewed after ESWL treatment, recording both clinical parameters (age, sex, location, laterality, body mass index [BMI]), and CT-Scan parameters (stone size and volume, skin-to-stone distance (SSD), mean and maximal stone density)...
