BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Whether a history of open nephrolithotomy affects the efficacy and morbidity of percutaneous interventions remains unsettled. We investigated this issue in our patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS A series of 51 men and 14 women who had undergone nephrolithotomy at least once (group A; mean age 40 years) were compared with 73 men and 44(More)
PURPOSE To assess the impact of warm ischemia time (WIT) on delayed graft function (DGF), graft loss, and graft function in laparoscopic donor nephrectomy (LDN). PATIENTS AND METHODS We prospectively studied 100 kidney recipients from LDN donors from 2001 to 2003. For comparison of graft outcome with different extents of WIT, recipients were divided into(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) for complex calculi within malformed kidneys can be challenging because of the abnormal anatomy. We present our 7-year experience with PCNL in such patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS We performed PCNL on 16 patients with complex calculi and anomalous kidneys, including 7 with horseshoe kidneys, 5 with(More)
BACKGROUND Tuberculosis (TB) is an important infection encountered posttransplantation, especially among patients in developing countries, where there are high incidences of morbidity and mortality. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred and twenty subjects (1%) from 15 major kidney transplantation centers in Iran from 1984 to 2003 were compared with 440(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Laparoscopic surgery is widely accepted for nephrectomy in adult renal transplantation. The success of this technique has not been compared with open donor nephrectomy (ODN) in children. PATIENTS AND METHODS In this randomized clinical trial, 40 adult kidney donors were randomly divided into two groups: 20 cases of laparoscopic(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the prevalence of Renal Colic (RC) in Ramadan (the month of fasting for Moslems) with other months of the lunar year. MATERIALS AND METHODS Records of 574 subjects, who were admitted in the two medical centers of Varamin (a city in a hot region of Iran), were reviewed in order to estimate the time trend of RC. RESULTS This study(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Laparoscopic pyeloplasty has been accepted as a helpful option for the treatment of primary ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction. We report the results of laparoscopic pyeloplasty in cases with secondary UPJ obstruction after failed open pyeloplasty. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between September 2003 and March 2006, 18 patients with(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Patients undergoing percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) sometimes have purulent fluid in the puncture site in spite of having no signs or symptoms of infection preoperatively. We report the safety and effectiveness of PCNL in 45 patients with staghorn renal stones and incidental purulent fluid in the pelvicaliceal system. PATIENTS(More)
We aimed to describe our experience in administering an innovative surgical technique to treat pediatric cases of exstrophy-epispadias complex. Between 1995 and 2004, seven consecutive patients (six males) with exstrophy-epispadias complex were treated using ileocecal segment for bladder augmentation and appendix for urethral reconstruction.
