Deflux Calcification Leading to Delayed Obstruction and Loss of Renal Function: A Case Report

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Sat, 05/07/2022 - 00:00
Dextranomer/hyaluronic acid (Deflux) has been widely used in the treatment of vesicoureteral reflux in the pediatric population. It has demonstrated acceptable early efficacy with minimal morbidity. Early complications from Deflux have been reported to occur in approximately 1% of cases1. However, late complications from Deflux use, including calcification and delayed ureteral obstruction, are less well understood. We present the case of an asymptomatic 11 year old girl with severe ipsilateral hydroureteronephrosis, identified nearly 8 years after treatment.

Intrascrotal lipoblastoma: A rare cause of paratesticular mass in a pediatric patient

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Fri, 05/06/2022 - 00:00
There is a broad differential diagnosis for a pre-pubertal child presenting with a scrotal mass including both benign and malignant etiologies. Lipoblastomas are rare benign neoplasms originating from fat cells that occur most commonly on the trunk or extremities of young children. There have been less than 20 cases of scrotal lipoblastomas reported in the literature, with the majority occurring in children less than 3 years of age. Here we present a unique case of an 18-month male presenting with a paratesticular mass found to be a lipoblastoma on final pathology.

Holmium laser resection of large bladder tumors: technique description, feasibility, and histopathological quality analysis

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Tue, 05/03/2022 - 00:00
Background: The HoLERBT (Holmium Laser En-bloc Resection of Bladder Tumors) has emerged as an alternative to classical TURBT (Transurethral Resection of Bladder Tumor). Recent randomized trial and meta-analysis corroborate with the benefits in pathological analysis, perioperative and long-term oncological outcomes1-3. However, the treatment of large tumors and the technique of extraction from the bladder is a problem to be overcome1, 4.

Extrarenal, Soft Tissue Malignant Rhabdoid Tumor arising in the Mons Pubis

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Sun, 05/01/2022 - 00:00
Extrarenal, extracranial malignant rhabdoid tumors (MRT) are uncommon malignancies with poor prognosis that may be diagnostically challenging. Reports of soft tissue MRTs in children are rare. For this reason, there are no standard treatment protocols. Historically, an aggressive multimodal approach has been taken. Here, we present a case of metastatic superficial pelvic MRT in a 16-year-old girl who remains disease free after aggressive multimodal therapy.

Transperineal prostate biopsy is associated with lower tissue core pathogen burden relative to transrectal biopsy: mechanistic underpinnings for lower infection risk in the transperineal approach

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Sun, 05/01/2022 - 00:00
To understand the mechanistic basis for reduced infectious complications in transperineal (TP) prostate biopsy, we sought to determine whether TP prostate biopsy is associated with a lower degree of pathogen introduction into the prostate relative to transrectal (TR) biopsy.

Concurrent multicystic dysplastic kidney, posterior urethral valves, and obstructive ureterocele in a male pediatric patient: a case report.

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Fri, 04/29/2022 - 00:00
Congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) are diagnosed in approximately 3-6 per 1000 live births and represent a spectrum of urologic conditions impacting the kidneys, ureter, bladder, and urethra1. Although both are considered under the classification of CAKUT, there is no known unifying pathophysiologic mechanism for ureteroceles and PUV with only one case report noted in the literature. Herein we report the only documented case of a patient with CAKUT related to PUV, ureterocele, and multicystic dysplastic kidney (MCDK).

SUPRAHEPATIC CAVA THROMBUS DUE TO WILMS TUMOR: TECHNIQUE WITHOUT CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Fri, 04/29/2022 - 00:00
Wilms tumor is a frequent malignant neoplasia in pediatric population. Extension to the inferior vena cava is a complication that occurs in approximately 4-15% of cases. Surgical techniques derived from the field of adult transplant surgery allow the resection of the tumor with its thrombus extension. In the case of a 6-year-old male patient with a stage III Wilms tumor that originated from the left renal vein, thrombectomy and left radical nephroureterectomy were accomplished without extracorporeal circulation.
