Most of the pain of percutaneous nephrolithotomy is caused by dilatation of the renal capsule and parenchymal tract. We evolved a technique to block renal capsular sensations by infiltration of lignocaine (lidocaine) at the site of renal entry, permitting the procedure to be done with local anesthesia.
PURPOSE We aim to present our experience for the repair of vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) with special reference to surgical approach. MATERIALS AND METHODS From January 1999 to June 2005, 52 VVF patients with mean age of 32 years underwent operative treatment. Fistulas were divided into two groups, simple and complex, depending on site, size, etiology and(More)
To compare the incidence of immediate surgical complications after renal transplantation between mycophenolate mofetil (MMF group)-based and mTOR inhibitors (mTOR group)-based immunosuppressive regimens. The preoperative parameters in the recipients, rejection rates and surgical complications within 12 months in the recipients were analyzed in 80 patients(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyze the effect of delayed presentation of posterior urethral valves in children. METHODS We divided 194 children with posterior urethral valve (PUV) who underwent surgical ablation into group I (less than 2 years old) and group II (greater than 2 years old) according to age at presentation. We analyzed the data for the effect of various(More)
INTRODUCTION Pelviureteric junction (PUJ) obstruction and concomitant renal calculus disease may coexist. We present our experience with simultaneous laparoscopic pyeloplasty and pyelolithotomy in such patients. METHOD 20 patients (20 renal units) underwent transperitoneal laparoscopic pyeloplasty and concomitant pyelolithotomy at our institution. An(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the long-term results of sigmoid vaginoplasty for Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome. The social and psychological acceptance of the procedure is also discussed in terms of a developing country scenario. METHODS A total of 14 patients with Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome were treated at our institute from January 1995(More)
Congenital thoracic ectopic kidney is a very rare developmental anomaly and the rarest form of all ectopic kidneys. It is usually asymptomatic and discovered incidentally on routine chest radiography. Herein we reported the first case of staghorn stone in a thoracic kidney managed successfully by percutaneous nephrolithotomy.
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the feasibility, efficacy and safety of laparoscopic radical nephrectomy (LRN) in T1 and T2 renal tumors. PATIENTS AND METHODS From December 1999 to March 2007, a retrospective analysis of 102 patients was done. A thorough preoperative workup was done in all patients. Postoperatively the patients were followed up every 3 months for(More)
A primary retroperitoneal ganglioneuroma was found in a 37-year-old woman on computed tomography, which revealed a homogeneous mass just above the right kidney. The tumor was resected through a transabdominal approach. The resected specimen measured 11 x 9 x 4.5 cm and weighed 270 g. The histologic examination showed that the lesion was a ganglioneuroma(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the safety, efficacy and versatility of laparoscopic pyeloplasty (LPP) in treatment of pelviureteric junction obstruction (PUJO). PATIENTS AND METHODS From January 2002 to November 2006, 185 patients (186 units; 182 with primary and 4 with secondary PUJO) underwent LPP (transperitoneal approach in 184; retroperitoneal approach in 2).
