Our aim was to evaluate our experience with percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) in children in the Republic of Yemen. Between January 1993 and December 1998, 135 children underwent 138 percutaneous nephrolithotomies in Yemen. The patient’s age ranged between 8 months and 14 years (average 8.9 years). There were 117 boys and 18 girls (male:female ratio(More)
The stone-holding pelvic dystopic kidneys of 15 patients were treated with laparoscopically assisted percutaneous transperitoneal nephrolithotomy. With patients in the Trendelenburg position under laparoscopic control, the bowels were dislodged with forceps until the kidney became visible. Under simultaneous laparoscopic and fluoroscopic control, the(More)
To demonstrate the beneficial results of hand-assisted laparoscopic tumor nephrectomy in pregnancy and to emphasize the proper timing of such surgery for its crucial importance attempting to avoid fatal cancer-related outcomes as a result of late interventions of aggressive tumors.

OBJECTIVE To evaluate our experience with percutaneous suprapubic cystolithotripsy (PCCL) in Yemeni children with endemic urinary bladder stones. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between January 1993 and December 1998, 117 children underwent percutaneous suprapubic lithotripsy in Arabia Felix Modern Hospital, Sana'a Republic of Yemen. The patients' ages ranged from 8(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate retrospectively the results and complication, efficacy, and safety rates of laparoscopic ureterolithotomy in the treatment of large, impacted ureteric stones. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between September 1994 and December 2003, 73 patients underwent 75 laparoscopic ureterolithotomies (LUL). Mid- and upper-ureteric stones were removed(More)
PURPOSE To compare the results, complications, efficiency, and safety of simultaneous bilateral percutaneous nephrolithotomy (SBPN) and unilateral percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). PATIENTS AND METHODS We compared the results and complications of 150 SBPNs with those of 300 unilateral PCNLs. All the procedures were performed by one surgeon which(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate our experience with the endoscopic management of lower and upper urinary tract stones in pediatric patients in the Republic of Yemen. METHODS From January 1, 1993 to December 31, 1998, 290 endoscopic operations were performed on 265 pediatric patients up to 14 years of age, 173 on the upper and 117 on the lower urinary tract.

UNLABELLED In the paediatric section, two papers relating to the upper urinary tract are presented. The first, from Hungary, describes simultaneous bilateral percutaneous nephrolithotomy in 13 patients, where it was deemed feasible; this is the first such report. Authors from London report on unilateral nephrectomy in patients with nephrogenic hypertension,(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate retrospectively our experience with percutaneous cystolithotomy (PCCL) in children having endemic urinary bladder stones. METHODS Between January 1993 and June 2003, 155 children younger than 14 years underwent PCCL. The patients' age ranged from 8 months to 14 years (average, 4.5 years). One hundred fifteen(More)
Two renal pelvic stones were removed percutaneously from a pelvic dystopic kidney using a transabdominal, transperitoneal approach. The puncture was made antegrade and controlled partly fluoroscopically and partly laparoscopically. Where the kidney was covered by bowels, these were displaced with forceps inserted through another laparoscopic trocar. The(More)
