This study lends support to others indicating the apparent safety and effectiveness of multiple transcervical insertions of quinacrine hydrochloride as pellets in 240 mg dosage to achieve permanent sterilization. In order to study the effects of the number of quinacrine pellet insertions and the site of placement of the pellets in the uterus of… (More)
INTRODUCTION A widely prevalent fear of thoracic complications with the supracostal approach has led to its underutilization in percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). We frequently use the supracostal approach and compared the efficacy and thoracic complications of infracostal, supra 12(th), and supra 11(th) punctures. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a… (More)
BACKGROUND A severe degree of ureteral obstruction is viewed as a predictor of poor outcome in shockwave lithotripsy (SWL). Impacted stones are often considered a contraindication to in-situ SWL. PATIENTS AND METHODS Impaction in our study was defined as failure to visualize the ureter distal to the calculus with proximal hold-up of contrast for as long… (More)
PURPOSE In this paper we present our experience with dissolution therapy of radiolucent calculi. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a retrospective analysis of patients who were offered urinary dissolution therapy between January 2010 and June 2011. Patients were treated with tablets containing potassium citrate and magnesium oxide. Partial dissolution was… (More)
Roughly a quarter of all clavicle fractures occur at the lateral end. Displaced fractures of the lateral clavicle have a higher rate of nonunion. The management of fractures of the lateral clavicle remains controversial. Open reduction internal fixation with a superiorly placed locking plate is a recently developed technique. However, there are no… (More)
We present images of three cases with false urethral anastomosis following urethroplasty. The likely causes are inadequate posterior urethral dissection and blind use of Hey Grove dilator. We recommend use of antegrade flexible cystoscopy to prevent this complication.
We describe the use of a pedicled tunica vaginalis flap to cover the anastomotic area after progressive elaborated perineal bulboprostatic anastomotic urethroplasty. Urethroplasty is completed in the standard technique. The tunica is opened longitudinally and dissected away as a rectangular flap from the testis and wrapped around the urethra.
INTRODUCTION Training residents to perform a PCNL puncture is hampered by the non-availability of a good inanimate model that can be used for demonstration and practice. The ethics of surgical training during actual surgeries is being questioned and the role of simulation is increasingly important. Virtual reality trainers, however, are prohibitively… (More)
AIMS To introduce the concept that a urological Nurse Specialist can perform Suprapubic Catheter (SPC) insertions independently without significant complications, if systematic training is given. SETTINGS AND DESIGN Retrospective study. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective audit of Suprapubic Catheter insertions performed by a Urological Nurse… (More)
