Introduction: Iatrogenic ureteric injuries are a rare but serious complication of abdomino-pelvic surgery which can be associated with significant morbidity. 65-80% of ureteric trauma is only identified in the postoperative period. Current guidelines recommend stent insertion or urinary diversion via percutaneous nephrostomy. Good quality evidence on success and outcomes remains scant and the optimum treatment pathway unknown. Methods: A retrospective review of all delayed presentation ureteric injuries treated in our unit between 2005 and 2013 was performed...

INTRODUCTION: The risks of exposure to medical ionizing radiation is of increasing concern both among medical professionals and the general public. Patients with nephrolithiasis are exposed to high levels of ionizing radiation through both diagnostic and therapeutic modalities. Endourologists who perform a high-volume of fluoroscopy guided procedures are also exposed to significant quantities of ionizing radiation. The combination of judicious use of radiation-based imaging modalities, application of new imaging techniques such as ultra-low dose computed tomography (CT) scan, and modifying use of current technology such as increasing ultrasound and pulsed fluoroscopy utilization offers the possibility of significantly reducing radiation exposure...

The improvement of surgical care requires transparent, consistent and accurate reports concerning surgical outcomes which are assessed and documented in a standardized manner. No consensus has yet been reached as to how to define and assess postoperative complications with regard to the specificity of urological procedures. Therefore, the comparison of data from different centres is difficult. The modified Clavien-Dindo classification allows for a more uniform analysis of surgical complications. This study analyses the occurrence of perioperative complications after percutaneous nephrolithotomy assessed on the basis of the aforementioned classification...

A 65-year-old male presented with an incidental magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) finding of a right renal pelvis (RP) tumor-like mass. He was subjected to nephrostomy tube (NT) placement due to hydronephrosis secondary to an impacted ureteral stone. NT was removed after successful Ho:YAG laser lithotripsy. Abdominal MRI performed 19 months later for another indication showed RP wall thickening/enhancement and an intrapelvic low-intensity linear structure presenting as a magnetic susceptibility artifact. He underwent diagnostic ureterorenoscopy/retrograde intrarenal surgery...

Ureteral stricture resulting from chronic inflammations such as tuberculosis, recurrent stone disease and multiple endourological interventions are complex in nature; these may lead to severe adhesions to surrounding structures. Endourological management of these cases is difficult with poorer outcomes. In such situations, reconstructive surgical corrections remain a reliable option. We describe the technique of onlay and inlay buccal mucosal graft ureteroplasty using a robotic platform in management of complex ureteral strictures...
