Urethral diverticula

Gladell P Paner, Rodolfo Montironi, Mahul B Amin
The paradigm of pathologic stage (pT) categorization in bladder cancer remains the depth of invasion into the different histologic layers of the bladder wall. However, the approaches to assigning pT stage category toward an enhanced outcome stratification have been marked by challenges and innovations, due in part to our growing appreciation of the surprisingly perplexing bladder histoanatomy. Upstaging of pT1 tumors after radical cystectomy is substantial and underscores the potential value of pT1 substaging in transurethral resection (TUR) specimens...

Catheter-associated complications are common, expensive, and often preventable by reducing unnecessary catheter usage. These complications range from most common nosocomial infection to uncommon conditions such as urethral diverticula and ischemic necrosis of the penis. Often, removal of a single known essential cause may be sufficient to prevent a disease. This review raises issues associated with urinary catheterization and emphasizes on the need of preventive measures a physician should take to reduce disappointing situations...

The role of ultrasound imaging in urogynecology is not clearly defined. Despite significant developments in visualization techniques and interpretation of images, pelvic ultrasound is still more a tool for research than for clinical practice. Structures of the lower genitourinary tract and pelvic floor can be visualized from different approaches: transperineal, introital, transvaginal, abdominal or endoanal. According to contemporary guidelines and recommendations, the role of ultrasound in urogynecology is limited to the measurement of post-void residue...

INTRODUCTION: Congenital anterior urethral diverticula in adult males are infrequent urological diseases, which they were mainly found in women. The etiology of female diverticula is that (Mohan et al. in J Urol 123(4):592-594, 1980) women have anatomically poorly supported urethral. Clinical presentation frequently involves urinary urgency, polyuria, postmicturition dribble, and hematuria. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 37 year-old male was presented to us complaining of infertility about 6 years after marriage...

BACKGROUND: Urethral valves are infravesical congenital anomalies, with the posterior urethral valve (PUV) being the most prevalent one. Anterior urethral valve (AUV) is a rare but a well-known congenital anomaly. AUV and diverticula can cause severe obstruction, whose repercussions on the proximal urinary system can be important. Few cases have been described; both separately and in association with urethral diverticulum. The presentation of such a rare but important case led us to a report with highlighting its classic imaging features...

We studied 72 buffalo with superficial swellings in the head (n=4), neck (n=5), chest wall (n=4), abdominal wall (n=28), limbs (n=16), gluteal region (n=8), perineal region (n=6) and udder (n=1). Ultrasonographically, the swellings varied according to type, duration, content and location. The clinical use of ultrasound to assess these superficial swellings allowed diagnosis of abscesses (n=21), hematomas (n=11), hernias (n=17), bursitis (n=13), urethral diverticula (n=6) and tumors (n=4). Ultrasonography could precisely discriminate each lesion type (sensitivity, 71-100%; specificity, 75-100%; odds ratio, 1...

OBJECTIVE: To describe a new modification of the Koyanagi technique for the one-stage repair of severe hypospadias and its short-term outcomes. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Our modified Koyanagi technique was performed in 24 patients with severe hypospadias between February 2012 and January 2015. The age of the patients ranged from 1.9 to 11.9 years (mean = 3.5 years). The flap design was similar to the Koyanagi technique, but our modified technique highlighted the following points: after the chordee was completely corrected, the urethral plate was recreated using foreskin, and then a U-shaped incision was made on the original and recreated urethral plate (as in the Duplay technique); a pedicled flap of the tunica vaginalis or scrotal dartos was used for additional coverage of the neourethra...
