Advances in ureteroscopic technology, alongside broadening treatment options have fuelled the rapid expansion of endourology. Semi-rigid ureteroscopy is a well-known procedure used globally for varying urological conditions, with high success rates. This article aims to provide 'tips and tricks' for the semi-rigid ureteroscopy procedure, and the management of commonly encountered pathology such as renal stones, ureteric strictures, and urothelial tumours.

Current development of endoscopic technology, lithotripters, and stone-retrieval devices has expanded the indications for retrograde and antegrade endoscopic therapy in the management of urolithiasis. This technology has also resulted in minimally invasive therapy. As surgeons' experience of endourological procedures with the newer instruments has become integrated, the surgical technique and indications for urolithiasis have also changed in the past few years. The present review provides an overview of endourological procedures for upper urinary tract stones and the key points related to surgical techniques...

The manuscript by Matlaga et al titled "Ureteroscopic Laser Lithotripsy: A Review of Dusting Versus Fragmentation With Extraction" was first intended for a meta-analysis publication, but because limited data published, it became an interesting review article focused in the current debate about which of the so described laser urinary lithotripsy "Fragmentation with Extraction" and "Dusting" techniques is better. Authors do an effort to homologize terminology and nomenclature and list the most efficient energy settings used in clinical scenario on the "Fragmentation with Extraction" [(Frequency 12-15 Hz (< 30 watt laser) >50Hz (100/120 watt laser) / Energy 0...

Ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) causes a reduction in the urine flow from the renal pelvis into the ureter. Untreated UPJO may cause hydronephrosis, chronic infection or urolithiasis and will often result in progressive deterioration of renal function. Most cases of UPJO are congenital; however, the disease can be clinically silent until adulthood. Other causes, both intrinsic and extrinsic, are acquired and include urolithiasis, post-operative/inflammatory/ischemic stricture, fibroepithelial polyps, adhesions and malignancy...

BACKGROUND: If endourological approaches are not applicable to treat vesicoureteral anastomotic complications after kidney transplantation, the surgical gold standard in many transplant centers is pyeloureterostomy or ureteroureterostomy using the native ureter. We report an original preperitoneal technique that can be used for vesicoureteral reanastomosis in kidney transplant recipients not eligible for endourological treatment. METHODS: Between January 2011 and December 2015, 18 kidney transplant recipients underwent this new surgical procedure...

Preoperative nomograms offer systematic and quantitative methods to assess patient- and stone-related characteristics and their impact on successful treatment and potential risk of complication. Discrepancies in the correlation of perioperative variables to patient outcomes have led to the individual development, validation, and application of four independent scoring systems for the percutaneous nephrolithotomy: Guy's stone score, S.T.O.N.E. nephrolithometry, Clinical Research Office of the Endourology Society nomogram, and Seoul National University Renal Stone Complexity...

PURPOSE: To discuss complications of simultaneous bilateral percutaneous nephrolithotomy (SB-PCNL) when compared to unilateral percutaneous nephrolithotomy (U-PCNL) and survey surgeon preference in bilateral stone disease management. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A database of all participating PCNL patients who received treatment at Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital within a 10-year period from 2006 to 2015 by a single surgeon (JL) was utilized. Perioperative data as well as complications, as defined according the Clavien grading system, were recorded...

The aim of this study was validation and comparison of stone scoring systems (S.T.O.N.E, GUY, CROES, S-ReSC) used to predict postoperative stone-free status and complications after percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) for staghorn stones. A total of 160 patients who had staghorn renal stones and underwent PCNL between January 2012 and August 2015 were included in the current retrospective study. Guy, S.T.O.N.E., S-ReSC (Seoul National University Renal Stone Complexity) and CROES (Clinical Research Office of the Endourological Society) nephrolithometry scores were calculated for each patient, and their potential association with stone-free status, operative and fluoroscopy time, and length of hospital stay (LOS) were evaluated...

A V Zaitsev, K B Kolontarev
The article analyses major guidelines on the management of uncomplicated cystitis. The authors outline and substantiate the role of fosfomycin in the management of urinary tract infections. They provide current evidence on the resistance of uropathogens, including those producing extended-spectrum -lactamase. Combination therapy (fosfomycin + -lactams or aminoglycosides) is often used to treat infections caused by multiresistant microorganisms. The possibility of using fosfomycin for perioperative prophylaxis of UTI during endourologic operations and transrectal prostate biopsy is shown...

Urolithiasis can result as a complication of urinary diversión, favored by urinary stasis, intestinal mucus, urinary tract bacteriuria, the metabolic derangements and the presence of foreign bodies. We present a 52- year-old male who underwent radical cystectomy with construction of a Bricker uretero-ileostomy. 5 years later he was found with a forgotten ureteral stent, a 6 cm calculi occupying the whole ileal conduit and a 13 mm calculi in the left renal pelvis. We present our experience in the successful endourological management of an encrusted neglected ureteral stent in an ileal conduit, achieving a stone-free status without complications...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to report current practices of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) among endourologists. METHODS: An internet survey was administered to Endourological Society members. Responders were distributed into three groups according to the number of PCNL cases per year (<50, 50-100, >100). PCNL technical details as well as opinions regarding specific clinical case scenarios were evaluated and compared between groups. RESULTS: We received 300 responses from 47 different countries...

Emphysematous infection of the urinary tract is a rapidly progressive, necrotizing infection which results into collection of gas and subsequent destruction of the tissues. Although very rare among general population, such necrotizing infection is common, particularly among those with compromised immune status. With the rising trend of people afflicted with diabetes mellitus globally, this fulminating infection may pose a serious threat to the medical fraternity. A high index of suspicion and abdominal CT scan usually helps to establish the diagnosis at an early stage and thereby facilitating aggressive antimicrobial therapy and percutaneous drainage where indicated...
