  • 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.

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

Acute Renal Infarction Pathogenesis and Atrial Fibrillation: Case Report and Literature Review

Kidney infarction is an uncommon thromboembolic complication of atrial fibrillation (AF). Diagnosis of this condition can be challenging due to its rarity and the fact that its presentation is associated with a multitude of other pathologies. No treatment guidelines have been established thus far; however, multiple modalities have been employed, including systemic thrombolytics, intra-arterial thrombolytics and anticoagulation. Full Text

Incidence of Post-Ureteric Reimplantation Urinary Tract Infection in Primary Vesicoureteral Reflux
The goal of treatment in vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is to reduce the risk of reflux-associated pyelonephritis. Medical versus surgical treatment for VUR is still controversial, with surgery successful in majority of cases. There are not enough data available in literature on long-term incidence of urinary tract infection (UTI) after reimplantation.
