It is well established that diagnostic X-ray practices must be optimised to keep patient radiation dose as low as compatible with providing the diagnostic information required. For effective optimisation of diagnostic exposures, the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) introduced the concept of diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) in 1996. The present study aimed to carry out an extensive dose survey of diagnostic radiography installations in the Uttarakhand region of India to establish local DRL Values for the different diagnostic practices...

Upper urinary tract calculi with infection is a quite difficult acute urologic emergency. And what is more, upper urinary tract obstruction after radical cystectomy following urinary diversion may be fatal in the vulnerable patients with this kind of situation. Postoperative anatomy and other factors affect the upper urinary tract calculi, and urinary tract infection greatly increased the risk. But it is particularly difficult to handle with patients with poor general condition and septic shock treatment, so how to optimize the selection program is worth further studying...

Antonio Macrì
Pelvic exenteration is a radical surgery that can require urinary and faecal diversions. Double-barreled wet colostomy, a viable alternative to the traditional ileal conduit with separate colostomy technique, is not always applicable due to the shortness of an ureter. To overcome this problem, I modified the original technique, replacing the two uretero-colic anastomoses with an ureteroureterostomy and an uretero-colic anastomosis.

We analysed cancer risks in patients with urinary tract stones but some features of the generated results alarmed us about possible surveillance bias, which we describe in this report. We used nationwide Swedish hospital records to identify patients with urinary tract stones (N = 211,718) and cancer registration data for cancer patients for years 1987 to 2012. Standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) for cancer were calculated after the last medical contact for urinary tract stones. All cancers were increased after kidney (SIR 1...

Deep endometriosis is usually defined as endometriosis infiltrating the peritoneum by >5 mm. It sometimes involves the ureter causing hydronephrosis in 5% of cases. The latter is associated with 18% ureteral lesions. Ureteral endometriosis is one of the rare causes of silent Kidney failure. The ureter obstruction can lead to urinary tract obstruction, hydronephrosis and hydroureters. The ureters are usually compressed externally by the endometriotic lesions surrounding it causing extrinsic ureteral endometriosis, and sometimes by pressure from the bulky adenomyotic uterus with paraureteral fibrosis...

Ureterocele, which is a cystic dilatation of the terminal ureter, is usually associated with the upper moiety in a case of the duplex system. Giant hydronephrosis, a rare entity, is usually due to pelviureteric junction obstruction and is usually diagnosed in infants and children. We report a unique case of a unilateral complete duplex system with ureterocele with giant hydronephrosis of the upper moiety in an adult woman presenting as an abdominal lump. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of giant hydronephrosis associated with ureterocele in an adult patient...
