Extracorporeal piezoelectric lithotripsy (EPL) is frequently used to treat renal calculi. We are presenting a case that developed silent ureteric obstruction following three sessions of EPL of 4,000 shocks each. The obstruction was silent and asymptomatic, and was detected 6 weeks later on a routine follow-up renogram. The obstruction was due to an impacted(More)
The aim of this study was to describe the abnormal morphological and functional patterns observed in radionuclide diuretic renograms (RDR) in patients with chronic urinary schistosomiasis. A retrospective analysis of RDR for 92 patients was made. It revealed the following abnormalities: A) Morphological changes observed in the images: Pelvicalyceal(More)
There is no simple analytical test. Radionuclide diuretic renography (RDR), being a dynamic imaging study reflecting the function of the kidney and the urodynamics of the urinary tracts, has the potential to predict the outcome of surgery in obstructive uropathy. In 12 sheep, we occluded one ureter for a maximum of seven weeks and followed up for a maxim of(More)
The selection of patients with chronic obstructive uropathy for surgery is difficult because of problems in identifying true obstruction in a grossly dilated urinary tract. This is especially so in schistosomal (bilharzial) obstructive uropathy. A prospective study of 90 patients (68 with chronic schistosomal and 22 with non-bilharzial obstructive uropathy)(More)
The functioning of 100 bladders with bilharzial calcification has been urodynamically studied and compared to 30 non-bilharzial healthy males of the same age group. Uroflowmetry, fluid cystometry and pressure flow studies were performed in all bilharzial and control patients. No significant urodynamic differences were found between the bilharzial patients(More)
Left renal cell carcinoma extending into the right atrium was treated by angioinfarction, removal of right atrial tumour using cardiopulmonary bypass and ten days later abdominal radical nephrectomy and inferior vena cava thrombectomy. Twenty four months later the patient remains well with no evidence of tumour recurrence.
