Cardiac valve surgery is considered one of the most frequent surgical procedures in which AKI is a common & serious complication. Although serum creatinine is routinely used as a marker of renal function, it poorly reflects the immediate post operative period renal function. Within minutes to few hours after a renal insult, plasma neutrophil gelatinase associated lipocalin (pNGAL) is released. The aim of this study was to assess the superiority of pNGAL over serum creatinine in detecting AKI in early post operative period...

As the number of kidney transplants continues to rise, so does the number and complexities of surgical-related complications, which may be associated with increased morbidity and potentially graft loss. Ureteral stenosis, the most prevalent urological complication, may require diverse techniques for surgical correction depending on several recipient and graft abnormalities. Here we report the surgical and clinical outcomes of a 62-year-old man with a postransplant pyeloureterostomy stricture successfully treated with ureterocalycostomy after a lower pole nephrectomy...

Lysyl oxidase (LOX) is an extracellular copper-dependent monoamine oxidase that catalyzes crosslinking of soluble collagen and elastin into insoluble, mature fibers. Lysyl oxidase-like proteins (LOXL), LOX isozymes with partial structural homology, exhibit similar catalytic activities. This review summarizes recent findings describing the roles of LOX family members in urological cancers and fibrosis. LOX/LOXL play key roles in extracellular matrix stability and integrity, which is essential for normal female pelvic floor function...

BACKGROUND: The urinary bladder and urethra comprise the lower urinary tracts. Pathological conditions that affect both structures necessitate reconstructive urological intervention with autologous tissue sources that cause neuromechanical and metabolic complications. Stem-cell therapies may offer an attractive alternative as they can replicate important host derived cellular functions such as mitosis, proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. OBJECTIVE: To provide an overview on the application of stem cell therapies for regenerating the lower urinary tracts and to discuss factors that need to be addressed before stem-cells can be reliably introduced into clinical urological practice...

Intermittent testicular torsion presents with recurrent episodes of severe unilateral testicular pain with resolution of symptoms between episodes. We present a case of a 26-year-old man with a 14-year history of intermittent testicular pain presenting to the urology clinic for elective surgical evaluation. He reported monthly symptoms for many years and had learned to manually reduce the torsion with each episode. Diagnosis of intermittent testicular torsion was made based on patient history and treatment with bilateral orchiopexy resulted in complete symptom resolution and without any loss of testicular function...
