Here we present a rare case of extra-renal type 2 PRCC which located at the right lateral side of the retroperitoneal inferior vena cava. No suspicious lesions were detected in the bilateral kidneys. The diagnosis was confirmed by histopathological examination after complete excision of the tumor. No recurrence was observed five months of follow-up after surgery.

Robot-assisted laparoscopic reoperative repair for failed pyeloplasty in children: an updated series

Among children with recurrent obstruction after pyeloplasty, reoperative pyeloplasty is commonly utilized. We previously reported on reoperative robot-assisted laparoscopic repair for failed pyeloplasty in 16 children and concluded that short term and intermediate outcomes were comparable to open reoperative repair. This updated series reports on longer-term outcomes from an extended series.

From PADUA to RENAL score and vice versa: Development and validation of a mathematical converter

Tumor complexity remains the primary modality by which urologists determine surgical approach and treatment strategy. R.E.N.A.L. and PADUA scores are the most popularly used nephrometry systems. Notwithstanding the common items contributing to the scores, some differences exist between PADUA and R.E.N.A.L. systems, translating into a different final score when assessing the tumor complexity of a renal mass. This represents an issue during quantitative syntheses of literature data and in the setting of retrospective multicentric analyses.

Renal replacement lipomatosis: from conception to birth.

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Tue, 10/30/2018 - 00:00
Renal replacement lipomatosis is a rare disease characterised by renal parenchymal atrophy and proliferation of inflammatory and fatty cells within the renal sinus, hilum, and perirenal region. The exact pathogenesis is unknown, however more than 75% of cases are associated with renal stones. Here, we provide images from a case with 10 years of follow-up, outlining the radiographic progression of the disease through time. Although only histopathology can confirm the diagnosis, high clinical suspicion in combination with the radiographic findings can differentiate the disease from other fat-containing entities.

Rare images of urethral hemangioma and it's management

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Tue, 10/30/2018 - 00:00
Hemangioma of the genitor-urinary tract commonly involves the kidney and the bladder. Urethral hemangioma is rarely encountered with only case reports available in literature. Larger lesions involving almost the entire penile urethra in length and width, and requiring open excision and reconstruction, are even rarer. We report a case of 23 years male presenting with recurrent, intermittent urethral bleed with normal urination for 3 years. Evaluation revealed a urethral growth which was managed with excision and reconstruction using buccal mucosa.
