A 60-year-old man was treated by extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) for an impacted ureter stone. Two days after the procedure he developed an acute abdomen. On laparotomy, a small bowel perforation in the area of an adhesion to the abdominal wall was found. The adherent intestinal segment was located exactly in the range of the ESWL field, so(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess perioperative complications and 90-day mortality of radical cystectomy (RC) in elderly patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC). MATERIALS AND METHODS This is a retrospective, multicentre (n = 11) study of a consecutive series of patients ≥75 years who underwent RC for MIBC between 2006 and 2010.

Through evolution in technology, endoscopic treatment has gained popularity for the treatment of upper tract urothelial carcinoma (ENDO-UTUC). A total of 20 patients with ENDO-UTUC were compared to 178 treated by radical nephroureterectomy (RNU) for a pTa-1 UTUC, and a systematic review was performed. Mean age for ENDO-UTUC was 71.9 ± 16.0 years, and tumor(More)
OBJECTIVE A potential strategy to decrease the high complication rate of radical cystectomy (RC) in the elderly is to avoid the use of bowel for urinary diversion. The aim of this study was to address this issue in a multicentre study of patients aged ≥ 75 years. PATIENTS AND METHODS We performed a retrospective, multicentre study of a consecutive series(More)
