  • Contemporary Management and Trends in the Treatment of Upper Tract Urothelial Carcinoma

    Upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) represents only 5% of all urothelial cancers. The 5-year cancer-specific survival in the United States is roughly 75%, with grade and stage being the most powerful predictors of survival.

  • Spontaneous Rupture of Renal Cell Carcinoma in a Horseshoe Kidney

    Spontaneous rupture of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) in a horseshoe kidney has not been described previously. We report a case of this condition in a 52-year-old man with a chief complaint of back pain.

  • Therapeutic Plasmapheresis in Primary Presentation of Diabetes Mellitus With Diabetic Ketoacidosis, Hypertriglyceridemia and Acute Pancreatitis

    Severe hypertriglyceridemia (SHTG)-induced acute pancreatitis has been well described. Currently accepted therapeutic options are limited.

  • Does 24-Hour Urine Supersaturation Predict Stone Composition?

    The aim of the study was to evaluate the correlation between 24-hour urine supersaturation (SS) levels and the crystalline stone composition.

  • Imaging Characteristics of 2,8-Dihydroxyadenine Stones: Review of a Rare Disorder

    Adenine phosphoribosyl transferase (APRT) deficiency is a rare genetic condition that often presents with recurrent dihydroxyadenine (DHA) urolithiasis. To our knowledge, no CT imaging of DHA stones has been previously reported in English medical literature.

Voiding Dysfunction in Mice With Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis: A Multiple Sclerosis-Like Disease
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common disabling neurological disorder affecting young adults. Lower urinary tract dysfunction (LUTD) is common during the course of MS and is responsible for an organic impact on the upper urinary tract and for impaired quality of life. Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), an animal model of MS, is characterized in mice by paralysis of the tail and hind limbs progressing to paraplegia... Full Text

Pseudohypercreatininemia as an Initial Presentation of Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major public health problem. Estimated glomerular filtration rates based on serum creatinine values are used to diagnose this condition, and accuracy of laboratory testing is a crucial step in diagnosing and managing these patients efficiently in a timely manner. Spuriously elevated creatinine values have been reported due to the interference of other substances, including paraproteins. Paraproteins can interfere with the determination of various clinically important analytes in an unpredictable manner. Full Text

Vesicoureteral Reflux Management With Subureteral Injection of Polydimethylsiloxane in Cases of Recurrent Pyelonephritis in Transplanted Kidneys
Kidney graft pyelonephritis is a common complication after renal transplantation, often prompted by vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). An effective and minimally invasive strategy for managing reflux that allows a decrease in the risk of recurrent pyelonephritis is desirable. The aim of this study was to describe our experience with an endoscopic treatment with subureteral injection of polydimethylsiloxane for the treatment of recurrent pyelonephritis of renal grafts secondary to VUR.
