POSTERIOR REVERSIBLE ENCEPHALOPATHY SYNDROME FOLLOWING FAILURE OF CONSERVATIVE MANAGEMENT IN RENAL TRAUMA: CASE REPORT
Blunt renal trauma is relatively common in children. Conservative management has become the mainstay of treatment. A 4-year-old boy presented following a fall onto his right abdomen resulting in renal trauma. Initial conservative management was followed by complete embolization of the kidney. The resulting continued hypertension, as well as endothelial disruption, resulted in PRES as manifested by a single instance of generalized seizure. The patient regained normal neurological function following nephrectomy.
Effective Prevention of Recurrent UTIs with Vaginal Estrogen: Pearls for a Urological Approach to Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause
To review the available data related to the prevention of recurrent urinary tract infection (rUTI) in postmenopausal women with vaginal estrogen preparations and provide the urologic community with the confidence to identify and treat genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM).
In order to optimize testicular salvage, urgent surgical exploration remains the current standard of practice for the acute scrotum when testicular torsion is suspected clinically. In the case of true testicular torsion, bilateral exploration of the scrotum, with either orchiopexy or orchiectomy for the affected side and prophylactic orchiopexy of the contralateral side is standard of care. However, a significant portion of patients who present with acute scrotum are often found to have torsion of the testicular appendage rather than torsion of the spermatic cord upon exploration.
A 65-year-old Caucasian man presented with a 24-year history of perineal leakage, bleeding, and mobility limitations associated with enlarging anogenital mass. He delayed addressing this issue due to myocardial infarction and cardiac stenting requiring long-term anticoagulation. Other past medical history included diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, obstructive sleep apnea, hypertension, and benign prostatic hyperplasia. He never pursued a biopsy or culture of the area.
: To report and compare presentation and management of Fournier's Gangrene (FG) in female vs. male patients at a single tertiary care center.
: To develop a better understanding of the strengths and deficiencies of female sexual health education and the attitudes toward female sexual health amongst urology, obstetrics and gynecology (OB-GYN), psychiatry, and family medicine trainees.Female sexual dysfunction (FSD) is characterized as distress related to sexual pain, interest/arousal, or orgasm. Despite the high prevalence of FSD there are few clinical resources available for patients and providers in Canada.
Morbidity and mortality associated with pediatric necrotizing fasciitis are strongly dependent on early diagnosis and timely intervention. Yet, the lack of early cutaneous findings and nonspecific symptoms may result in initial delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis. Infants may be particularly at risk of missed or delayed diagnosis due to inherent barriers in communication and rarity of the condition, especially among healthy patients. We describe two cases of necrotizing fasciitis following routine genitourinary surgery in healthy infants.
