OBJECTIVES To analyze the outcomes with mid- to long-term follow-up of laparoscopic ureterolysis (LU) and omental wrapping in retroperitoneal fibrosis (RPF) with obstructive uropathy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Records of 9 patients with RPF who had obstructive uropathy at presentation and had undergone LU and omental wrapping at our center during January 2004(More)
A review of the recent literature on the surgical management of anterior urethral stricture was performed. The literature was searched via PubMed using the search terms 'urethral stricture' and 'urethroplasty' from 1996 to 2009. The management of anterior urethral strictures is changing rapidly in the sense that the reconstructive procedures have evolved(More)
Several agents have been utilised for therapy of mastalgia based on data from small trials. No meta-analysis of trials on mastalgia exists. We have conducted a meta-analysis on trials on mastalgia published in the English language. Study was restricted to randomised controlled trials comparing Bromocriptine, Danazol, Evening primrose oil (EPO) and Tamoxifen(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Laparoscopic dismembered pyeloplasty (LDP) is a minimally invasive approach that is becoming standard management of ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO). It provides similar results when compared with open surgery. The main goal of LDP is to meet the standard of open dismembered pyeloplasty with reduced trauma for the patients.(More)
We report two cases of retrocaval ureter that were successfully treated by a laparoscopic transperitoneal approach. Presentation of both these cases was with flank pain. Ureteroureterostomy using an intracorporeal suture technique was performed for one, and pyelopyelostomy for the other case. Operative time was 120 min and 110 min, respectively.(More)
Laparoscopic pyeloplasty (LP) is a minimally invasive approach that is becoming a standard treatment of ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO). It is providing similar results when compared with open surgery. We here present our technique and analyses of experience of our first 100 cases. We retrospectively reviewed and analyzed the records of first 100(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Because of the prohibitive cost of laparoscopic disposable instruments such as the PneumoSleeve, Endocatch, and vascular staples, laparoscopic live-donor nephrectomy has not gained wide acceptance in many developing countries. To circumvent this problem, we have developed a cost-saving approach, which is described herein and compared(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the outcome of laparoscopic nephrectomy in patients with xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XGPN). METHODS The medical and procedural records of patients with pathologically confirmed XGPN from February 2004 to December 2010 were reviewed retrospectively. During this period, 19 patients (mean age 37.5 years, range 14-77) underwent(More)
The maternal and fetal complications of pyonephrosis during pregnancy can be devastating, thus the call for urgent but safe intervention. Laparoscopic nephrectomy has been used safely and effectively in nonpregnant patients with pyonephrotic kidney. We report on a case of a 28-year-old pregnant woman with pyonephrotic kidney that we believe to be the first(More)
Genitourinary tuberculosis (GUTB) is the second most common form of extrapulmonary TB after lymph nodes. Advanced GUTB leading to strictures of ureters and urethra, and bladder contracture frequently need surgical management. These are usually treated by ileal replacement of ureter, substitution urethroplasty using buccal mucosal graft (BMG) and(More)
