Introduction Ureteral duplication is the most common ureteral anomaly, occurring in 0.6-0.7% of the population. Our objective was to compare urolithiasis treatment outcomes in patients with and without ureteral duplication. Methods Patients with ureteral duplication who underwent ureteroscopy (URS) were identified in a stone registry at a high volume, tertiary care center from 1998 to 2015. Preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative data were collected retrospectively. A 1:1 control cohort of patients without duplication was identified, matched by stone location and size, as well as age, BMI and gender...

Urolithiasis is the most common nonobstetric complication in the gravid patient. The experience can provoke undue stress for the mother, fetus, and management team. The physiologic changes of pregnancy render the physical exam and imaging studies less reliable than in the typical patient. Diagnosis is further complicated by the need for careful selection of imaging modality in order to maximize diagnostic utility and minimize obstetric risk to the mother and ionizing radiation exposure to the fetus. Ultrasound remains the first-line diagnostic imaging modality in this group, but other options are available if results are inconclusive...

Lifestyle, food intake, and exposure to chemicals are potential risk factors for the development of calcium urolithiasis. Pb, Cd, and Hg have been proved to cause renal illness, and urinary tract stones might be caused by exposure to metals. Therefore, this study aimed to measure the concentration of metals in urinary tract stones and blood simultaneously in urolithiasis patients. Moreover, we intended to determine whether urinary tract stones can be regarded as a biomarker of exposure or an effect marker in a population with environmental exposure to metals...
