Background: Ureteral stents (Double-J stents) have been widely used in urology to prevent or relieve ureteral obstruction and have become an integral part of urologic practice. However, if ureteral stents are kept for a prolonged period or neglected, they can cause significant morbidity because of complications such as stent migration, encrustation, occlusion, stone formation, and fragmentation. Therefore, it is crucial to remove stents as soon as possible after they have served their purpose, to prevent complications and morbidity...

Background: Retrocaval ureter is a rare entity with a reported incidence of ∼1 in 1100 and a 2.8-fold male predominance. The course of the ureter could be classified, using an intravenous urography, as type 1 having S-shaped, fish-hook, or J-shaped retrocaval course or type 2 having sickle-shaped course. No case report describing retrograde endoscopic management of ureteral calculi in the presence of retrocaval ureter could be found in existing literature. We are presenting a case of type I retrocaval ureter with ureteral calculi and nonobstructive drainage, which was effectively managed by flexible ureteroscopy...

Background: A minority of urologists performing percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) achieve their own nephrostomy access. In an effort to simplify the access part of PCNL, we herein describe our initial experience with endoscopic-guided retrograde percutaneous access in the prone split-leg position. Case Presentation(s): After informed consent, a confirmed negative urine culture, and 1 week pretreatment with tamsulosin, four carefully selected PCNL patients underwent endoscopic-guided retrograde access in a prone split-leg position using the Lawson catheter...

Background: Urinary obstruction as a result of a late complication of a gunshot wound is rarely reported. Bullet shell fragments may migrate from their initial location into an area causing obstruction. In this study, we present a case of a left renal calculus surrounding a 9 mm gun shell in a patient with a solitary functioning left kidney. Case Presentation: A 53-year-old man presented with left hydronephrosis found on an urgent CT scan following complaints of left flank pain and signs of acute renal failure 10 years after suffering a gunshot wound to the abdomen...

Background: Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common pathology in elderly patients, inducing lower urinary tract symptoms. The treatment of BPH is first a medical option, then a surgical treatment, either by endoscopy or open surgery. We here report a case of GreenLight HPS™ laser photovaporization (PV) with an impaired maintenance of median lobe postoperatively, unimportant on functional results. Case Presentation: A 68-year-old man presented with lower urinary tract symptoms in the last 2 years, treated first by medicine with good response...

Background: Fibroepithelial polyps of the urothelial system are rare and are considered to be benign tumors. Ultrasonography (USG), contrast-enhanced CT, and contrast-enhanced MRI can be used for detecting fibroepithelial polyps in the urothelial system. These polyps can be treated by performing open exploration and endoscopic or laparoscopic resection. Previous studies have also reported the frequent use of laser treatment for treating fibroepithelial polyps located in the proximal ureter. Case Presentation: A 54-year-old female patient presented to our clinic with right flank pain...

Introduction: Endophytic renal tumors that are completely intraparenchymal pose several challenges to surgeons, including in intraoperative tumor identification. Image-guided hook wires, which are now used in surgery, particularly in spinal surgery, thoracoscopic surgery, and breast surgery, allow for the precise localization of tumor sites. The hook wire facilitated the localization of the lesion and avoided cutting into the lesion directly. Case Presentation: A 55-year-old woman was referred to our hospital due to an incidentally discovered 16-mm intracortical right renal mass in the anterior medial position...

Introduction: Cancers of the kidney, arising from either the renal parenchymal tissue or the renal pelvis, is among the 13 commonest types of malignancy globally, accounting for between 3% and 4% of all newly diagnosed cancers. Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) accounts for 85% of all malignant renal neoplasms. We present a rare case of an RCC directly extending into the renal pelvicalyceal system and with a thrombus within the ureter. Case Presentation: A 39-year-old woman presented with a long-standing history of worsening left flank pain, intermittent visible hematuria, and a fullness in the left flank...

Background: Seminal vesicle cyst is an extremely rare condition, which is frequently congenital and associated with Zinner's syndrome. This syndrome represents a constellation of seminal vesicle cyst, ipsilateral or contralateral renal agenesis or renal dysplasia, ureteral ectopia, and ejaculatory duct obstruction. We report a young symptomatic patient undergoing robot-assisted laparoscopic excision of a huge seminal vesicle cyst during which an atrophic ipsilateral kidney was discovered incidentally and managed by nephroureterectomy in the same session without changing trocar positions...

Introduction: Ureterocalicostomy is a well-established procedure of choice for recurrent pelviureteric junction (PUJ) obstruction refractory to endoscopic management, failed pyeloplasty, completely intrarenal pelvis, and iatrogenic upper ureteral stricture with significant peripelvic fibrosis. Robotic ureterocalicostomy is the procedure of choice in such scenarios where meticulous dissection and accurate anastomotic suturing is required. Case Presentation: We report the case of an 18-year-old male, who underwent celiac plexus block for pain management of chronic calcific pancreatitis and presented with pain in the epigastric region and the right flank...

Objective: To demonstrate the unique management technique of ultrasound (USG)-guided compression repair for bulbourethral artery pseudoaneurysm following optical internal urethrotomy (OIU) for short segment bulbar urethral stricture. Methods: A 40-year-old man underwent day care OIU for short segment bulbar urethral stricture. The procedure was uneventful and the patient was discharged the same day. After catheter removal on day 7, the patient had massive bleed from urethra. Perineal compression stopped the bleeding; however, the patient bled again and needed blood transfusion...

Background: Endometriosis is a multifactorial benign disorder characterized by the abnormal presence of endometrial tissue in an extraendometrial site. Although extrapelvic endometriosis is uncommon, symptomatic involvement of the kidney is exceedingly rare. This benign disease can mimic several urologic processes, but because of its scarcity in clinical practice, it is seldom considered in the differential. Case Presentation: In this report, we describe the case of a 45-year-old woman with flank pain and hematuria, who was found to have a left renal mass on cross-sectional imaging...

Backgrounds: Surgical procedures in the elderly are associated with higher perioperative morbidity and mortality rates than in younger patients. This is especially significant because elderly individuals are more likely to be operated on now than in the past because they represent the fastest growing subset of the population in advanced countries. Our cases are three nonagenarian patients with renal malignancy in poor general condition and were effectively treated by laparoscopic surgery. Case Presentation: Case 1 was a 91-year-old male patient with a right renal cell carcinoma of pT1b N0 M0...

Background: The first-line treatment in cases of chylous leakage is conservative, and operation should be considered only in patients who fail to respond to this treatment. The main clinical concern is the difficulty of intraoperative localization of the site of leakage that can affect surgical outcome. Case Presentation: A 33-year-old man presented with a 4-month history of abdominal pain and weight loss. CT scan revealed enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes. Retroperitoneal lymph node biopsy was performed owing to the suspicion of lymphoproliferative disease, with a pathological result of nonspecific adenitis...

Asymptomatic microscopic hematuria (AMH) is incidentally found during routine health screenings. In the clinical evaluation of persistent AMH imaging modalities, CT urography, MR urography, and retrograde pyelography are of diagnostic importance. In case of pathologic findings (e.g., contrast-filling defects), endoscopic evaluation is mostly performed. To our knowledge, we report the first case of a patient with persistent AMH caused by biopsy-proven renal papillary hyperplasia.

Background: Laparoscopic port-site metastases remain rare for urologic tumors, despite the increasing use of laparoscopic techniques on the approach of urologic malignancy. Herein, we report a case of port-site mass after laparoscopic radical prostatectomy whose immunohistochemistry demonstrated metastasis from a pancreatic lesion. Case Presentation: A 62-year-old man presented to our ambulatory clinic with an elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) of 7.7 ng/mL. Transrectal biopsies revealed prostate cancer Gleason 6 (3 + 3) on the right side...
