Management of Left Staghorn Calculus with Colorenal Fistula

Wed, 05/12/2021 - 00:00
Fistula formation between the kidney and the colon is a rare occurrence. Colorenal fistulas have been reported after renal cryoablation, calculous pyonephrosis, and renal cell carcinoma. Fistula formation is reported in as many as 35% of patients with Crohn's disease. Crohn's-related urinary fistulas may include enterovesical, enteroureteral, rectourethral, urethrocutaneous, and entero-urachal fistulas. Here, we report a rare case of a patient who was found to have a left colorenal fistula in the setting of a left staghorn calculus and recurrent urinary tract infections with a question about the eventual definitive management of the patient.

Improving Operating Room Efficiency Using the Six Sigma Methodology

Mon, 05/10/2021 - 00:00
To help improve operating room efficiency in a tertiary care facility, Six Sigma analysis was utilized. Six Sigma is a technique driven by data, methodology, and a philosophy of continuous improvement to help create a system in which 99.99966% of products are free from defects. This process helps to reduce variability and waste in production, while increasing quality and decreasing cost of the final product.

Salvage Enbloc Thulium Fiber Laser Enucleation of Prostate for Giant Prostatomegaly after Prostatic Urethral Lift

Fri, 05/07/2021 - 00:00
Prostatic urethral lift (PUL) is an accepted treatment modality for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and is currently recommended for surgical management of prostates < 80 grams in size.1 However, in reality some patients with prostate > 80 gram also receive PUL.2 A substantial number of these patients may requirement re-treatment for recurrent or persistent lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) after PUL.3-5 Patients with larger prostates who fail PUL might be better managed with endoscopic enucleation which is a size-independent modality for treatment of BPH.

Using Preoperative Pelvic Floor Assessment to Predict Early Return of Continence after Robotic Radical Prostatectomy

Fri, 05/07/2021 - 00:00
To evaluate whether pre-operative pelvic floor physical therapy (PFPT) parameters may predict early return of urinary continence after RP. While long-term urinary continence is eventually achieved in most patients who undergo radical prostatectomy (RP), predicting when patients will become continent is challenging. Prior studies aiming to predict return of post-operative continence have not evaluated patient-specific pelvic floor strength parameters.

Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor of the Kidney with Mainly Pulmonary Symptoms by 18F-FDG PET/CT

Tue, 05/04/2021 - 00:00
Desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) is a rare malignancy believed to originate from the serous membranes and it is highly aggressive with 5-year overall survival of 18.4%. Only a small number of DSRCT cases have been documented. Here, we report findings of DSRCT of the kidney on 18F-FDG PET/CT in a 30-year-old woman who presented with repetitive pulmonary infection and spontaneous pneumothorax.

ATR and BRCA2 simultaneous mutation in a ccRCC with sarcomatoid differentiation and extensive metastases: a case report

Tue, 05/04/2021 - 00:00
The genomic landscape and driver-gene mutations differ significantly among diverse histological subtypes of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) due to the intratumoral heterogeneity. Frequent mutations in canonical DNA damage response (DDR) genes, such as BRCA1/2 or ATR serine/threonine kinase (ATR) haven't been reported even in large-scale genomic profiling of ccRCC researches. Herein, we reported a rare ccRCC harboring ATR and BRCA2 simultaneous mutation with complicated morphologies and extensive metastases.
