  • [Title] A peculiar complication of suprapubic catheterization: recurrent ureteral obstruction and hydronephrosis.
  • Some serious complications include bowel perforation and obstruction.
  • Computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen revealed severe right hydronephrosis and hydroureter due to obstruction of the right distal ureter by the SPC tip.
  • CT of the abdomen again revealed severe right hydronephrosis and hydroureter due to obstruction of the right distal ureter by the SPC tip.
  • Follow-up CT of the abdomen 2 months later showed complete resolution of the hydronephrosis and hydroureter.
  • CONCLUSION: This case illustrates that obstruction of the ureter by the tip of an SPC can be a cause of recurrent hydronephrosis and urosepsis.

  • [Title] Etio-pathogenic and morphological correlations in congenital hydronephrosis.
  • Hydronephrosis, "distension in varying degrees of pelvis and calyces, accompanied by progressive atrophy of renal parenchyma due to obstruction in urinary flow", is an apparently simple reno-urinary disease, but, in reality, by association of its own characters with those conferred by causative lesions, becomes of a significant complexity.
  • The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the plurivalent character of this entity on a batch of cases with congenital hydronephrosis, by identification of lesional features correlated with cause of disease.
  • The etiology of hydronephrosis in analyzed cases was characterized by heterogeneity: polar inferior artery, horseshoe kidney, extrarenal pelvis, transverse valves of pelviureteral junction (PUJ), adhesion of ureter to PUJ, intrinsic stenosis of PUJ, vesico-ureteral reflux, posterior urethral valves, stenosis of urethral meatus.
  • The way of intervention of urinary obstruction and the uni- or bilateral character of damage were definitory for the macroscopical appearance of the hydronephrotic kidney, renal pelvis demonstrating its role of expansion room for kidney protection.
  • In analyzed cases of congenital hydronephrosis, correlation specific cause-pelvic lesion evidenced histopathological differences related to etiology.
  • Regardless of etiology, all cases of congenital hydronephrosis were characterized by varying degrees of fibrosis in chorion of renal pelvis, accompanied by active chronic inflammation, observation that support the idea of connection between the two pathological changes.

  • [Title] Double obstruction of ureter: A diagnostic challenge.
  • INTRODUCTION: Isolated obstruction of the ureteropelvic junction and the vesico-ureteric junction are the two most common causes of hydronephrosis in a pediatric population.
  • Here, we discuss the problems we faced when we encountered these two anomalies in the same ureter and the way in which we managed them.
  • AIM: To assess the difficulties in diagnosis of pediatric patients who present with both ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) and vesico-ureteric junction obstruction (VUJO) in the ipsilateral ureter and their management protocol.
  • Out of 254 children who were diagnosed to have hydronephrosis due to UPJO in our institute, 5 patients (in the age range of 5 to 10 years) had both UPJO and VUJO in the ipsilateral ureter.
  • All patients were suspected of having double obstruction during pyeloplasty when appropriate size double J stent could not be negotiated through the vesicoureteric junction into the bladder.
  • CONCLUSION: Children with double obstruction of the ipsilateral ureter present as a diagnostic dilemma.
  • Early diagnosis can be made if this condition is kept in mind while treating any hydronephrosis due to UPJO or UVJO.

  • [Title] Retrocaval ureter: the importance of intravenous urography.
  • Retrocaval ureter is a rare cause of hydronephrosis.
  • Differentiation from other causes of urinary tract obstruction, especially the more common urolithiasis, is important for successful surgical management.
  • Current practice has seen multislice computed tomography (MSCT) rapidly replaces intravenous urography (IVU) in the assessment of patients with hydronephrosis due to suspected urolithiasis, especially ureterolithiasis.
  • However, MSCT, without adequate opacification of the entire ureter, may allow the physician to overlook a retrocaval ureter as the cause of hydronephrosis.
  • High-resolution IVU images can demonstrate the typical appearance that leads to the accurate diagnosis of a retrocaval ureter.

  • [Title] Urinary cytokine profiles in unilateral congenital hydronephrosis.
  • BACKGROUND: We aimed to evaluate possible clinical application of urinary monocyte chemotactic protein-1 (MCP-1), osteopontin (OPN), and regulated upon activation, normal T-cell expressed and secreted (RANTES) chemokine as useful noninvasive markers in children with congenital hydronephrosis (HN) caused by ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Additional studies with larger number of patients are required to confirm a potential application of uMCP-1 as a promising parameter for early identification of kidney obstruction.

  • [Title] Impaired EphA4 signaling leads to congenital hydronephrosis, renal injury, and hypertension.
  • Experimental hydronephrosis induced by partial ureteral obstruction at 3 wk of age causes hypertension and renal impairment in adult rats and mice.
  • Genetically modified mice, where the cytoplasmic domain of the EphA4 receptor has been substituted by enhanced green fluorescent protein (EphA4gf/gf), develop spontaneous hydronephrosis and provide a model for further studies of the disorder.
  • The present study aimed to determine if animals with congenital hydronephrosis develop hypertension and renal injuries, similar to that of experimental hydronephrosis.
  • EphA4gf/gf mice developed variable degrees of hydronephrosis that correlated with their blood pressure level.
  • In conclusion, congenital hydronephrosis causes hypertension and renal damage, similar to that observed in experimentally induced hydronephrosis.
  • This study further reinforces the supposed causal link between hydronephrosis and later development of hypertension in humans.

  • [Title] Ureter myogenesis: putting Teashirt into context.
  • After the basic shape of the mammalian ureter is established, its epithelia mature and a coat of smooth muscle cells differentiate around nascent urothelia.
  • The ureter actively propels tubular fluid from the renal pelvis to the bladder, and this peristalsis, which starts in the fetal period, requires coordinated smooth muscle contraction.
  • Teashirt-3 (Tshz3) is expressed in smooth muscle cell precursors that form the wall of the forming mammalian ureter.
  • Null mutation of Tshz3 in mice leads to failure of functional muscularization in the top of the ureter and this is followed by congenital hydronephrosis.
  • The phenotype of Tshz3 mutant mice resembles that of human congenital pelviureteric junction obstruction, and we suggest these individuals may have mutations of genes encoding molecules in the differentiation pathway mediated by Tshz3.

  • [Title] Hydronephrosis following ureteral reimplantation: when is it concerning?
  • OBJECTIVES: Hydronephrosis without obstruction is common prior to ureteral reimplant, especially in patients with high-grade VUR.
  • Consequently, when hydronephrosis is present post-operatively, it is unclear when it should be concerning.
  • We evaluated the finding of hydronephrosis in children undergoing reimplantation and its evolution following surgery.
  • RESULTS: Hydronephrosis was observed in 24% pre-operatively and 21% post-operatively.
  • 52% with pre-operative hydronephrosis had it post-operatively, while 12% without pre-operative hydronephrosis had it post-operatively.
  • 71% of post-operative hydronephrosis resolved on average in 1.36 years.
  • 19% didn't resolve and 0.1% had ureteral obstruction.
  • Risk factors for post-operative hydronephrosis included increasing severity of VUR, and high degree of pre-operative hydronephrosis.
  • CONCLUSION: Hydronephrosis following ureteral reimplantation is not rare, and correlated to pre-operative evaluations.
  • Post-operative hydronephrosis is frequently transient and benign, and usually resolves within the first 2 years.
  • Patients with high-grade VUR and hydronephrosis pre-operatively, however, are at risk for developing worsened hydronephrosis and should be followed with a 3-month post-operative ultrasound.

  • [Title] Pure transperitoneal laparoscopic correction of retrocaval ureter.
  • BACKGROUND: Retrocaval ureter is a rare congenital abnormality.
  • Operative repair is always suggested in cases of significant functional obstruction.
  • Laparoscopic procedures have been employed as the minimally invasive therapeutic option for retrocaval ureter.
  • However, the laparoscopic techniques for retrocaval ureter might be technically challenging to some surgeons.
  • The aim of this article was to present our experience and surgical techniques of pure transperitoneal laparoscopic pyelopyelostomy and ureteroureterostomy in nine patients with retrocaval ureter.
  • METHODS: A total of nine patients of retrocaval ureter underwent pure laparoscopic pyelopyelostomy or ureteroureterostomy.
  • The distal part of the dilated renal pelvis was transected at the ureteropelvic junction and the ureter was relocated anterior to the inferior vena cava.
  • The symptoms disappeared and hydronephrosis decreased substantially after surgery.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Pure transperitoneal laparoscopic correction for retrocaval ureter was associated with an excellent outcome, minimal invasiveness and short hospital stay.
  • It is technically feasible and reliable for retrocaval ureter treatment.
  • Laparoscopic surgery could be the standard treatment for retrocaval ureter.

  • [Title] Laparoscopic Anderson-Hynes pyeloplasty without symphysiotomy for hydronephrosis with horseshoe kidney.
  • INTRODUCTION: The objective of this study is to clarify whether symphysiotomy is an essential procedure combined with the laparoscopic pyeloplasty for the surgical treatment of ureteropelvic junction obstruction related to horseshoe kidney.
  • METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed five horseshoe kidney patients with symptomatic hydronephrosis who underwent laparoscopic transperitoneal Anderson-Hynes pyeloplasty without symphysiotomy between July 2002 and October 2011.
  • Anterior crossing vessels were observed in all cases, and four of them were defined as a principle cause of the obstruction.
  • Crossing vessels were transposed behind the ureter with ureteropelvic anastomosis at the anterior aspect of these structures.
  • Diuretic renogram showed that renal function of the side with hydronephrosis was unchanged, but diuretic excretion half-time was diminished in all cases.
  • CONCLUSION: The present data suggest that symphysiotomy can be avoided in many, if not all, cases of hydronephrosis related to horseshoe kidney.

  • OBJECTIVE: Retrocaval ureter is a rare disease which is due to a abnormal development of the inferior cava vein.
  • It usually presents with ureteral obstruction, and surgery is needed for symptomatic cases.
  • METHOD: We present a case of retrocaval ureter and a revision of the literature.
  • The intravenous urography (IVU) suggested the diagnosis of retrocaval right ureter, which is confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging (MR).
  • Make us resection of the retrocaval segment and relocation of the ureter anterior to the inferior vena cava.
  • Follow-up IVU showed good resolution of hydronephrosis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Retrocaval ureter is a rare disease, with easy diagnostic and effective treatment.

  • [Title] Molecular pathology of murine ureteritis causing obstructive uropathy with hydronephrosis.
  • Primary causes of urinary tract obstruction that induces urine retention and results in hydronephrosis include uroliths, inflammation, and tumors.
  • In this study, we analyzed the molecular pathology of ureteritis causing hydronephrosis in laboratory rodents.F2 progenies of C57BL/6 and DBA/2 mice were studied histopathologically and by comprehensive gene expression analysis of their ureters.
  • Incidence of hydronephrosis was approximately 5% in F2 progenies.
  • Histopathologically, this hydronephrosis was caused by stenosis of the proximal ureter, which showed fibrosis and papillary malformations of the proliferative epithelium with infiltrations of B-cell-dominated lymphocytes.
  • Eosinophilic crystals were characteristically observed in the lumen of the ureter and the cytoplasm of large granular leukocytes, eosinophils, and transitional epithelial cells.
  • The Ym1 protein was mainly localized to the cytoplasm of the transitional epithelium, infiltrated cells, and eosinophilic crystals in diseased ureters.We determined that the primary cause of hydronephrosis in F2 mice was ureteritis mediated by the local hyperimmune response with malformation of the transitional epithelium.

  • [Title] Deletion of the miR-143/145 cluster leads to hydronephrosis in mice.
  • The underlying causes of functional hydronephrosis are not well understood. miRNAs, which are small noncoding RNAs, regulate gene expression at the post-transcriptional level.
  • We found that miR-145-5p, a member of the miR-143/145 cluster that is highly expressed in smooth muscle cells of the renal vasculature, was present in the pelvicalyceal system and the ureter.
  • To evaluate whether the miR-143/145 cluster is involved in urinary tract function we performed morphologic, functional, and gene expression studies in mice carrying a whole-body deletion of miR-143/145. miR-143/145-deficient mice developed hydronephrosis, characterized by severe papillary atrophy and dilatation of the pelvicalyceal system without obvious physical obstruction.
  • The number of ureter contractions was significantly higher in miR-143/145-deficient mice.
  • We show that miR-143/145 are important for the normal peristalsis of the ureter and report an association between the expression of these miRNAs and hydronephrosis.

  • [Title] Bilateral congenital midureteric strictures associated with multicystic dysplastic kidney and hydronephrosis: evaluation with MR urography.
  • The severity of obstruction differed in the two ureters, resulting in a multicystic dysplastic kidney (MCDK) with an atretic ureter on one side and hydronephrosis that worsened over time due to progressive stenosis on the other.
  • Although midureteric strictures are usually misdiagnosed as ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) or ureterovesical junction (UVJ) obstruction on conventional imaging, MR urography was able to clearly demonstrate both the anatomical and functional abnormalities.

  • Hydronephrosis was induced by partial ligation of the right ureter.
  • Animals were sacrificed on scheduled time after unilateral ureteral obstruction and the expression of 8-OHdG, ?-H2AX, apoptotic proteins and APE was determined.
  • The accumulated p53 activated Bax and caspase-3 7 days after hydronephrosis induction and the resulting high levels of p53-dependent apoptotic proteins and ?-H2AX tended to decrease APE.
  • The intensities of 8-OHdG and caspase-3 immunolocalization significantly increased in obstructed kidneys than in sham-operated kidneys, although APE immunoreactivity increased after hydronephrosis induction.

  • [Title] Appearances of the circumcaval ureter on excretory urography and MR urography: A single-center case series.
  • OBJECTIVES: To describe Magnetic Resonance Urography (MRU) appearances of the circumcaval ureter, a rare congenital cause of hydronephrosis.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seven cases of circumcaval ureter, suspected on intravenous urography (IVU), underwent subsequent static MRU using heavily T2-weighted sequences.
  • RESULTS: The various appearances of circumcaval ureter on IVU and MRU were studied and compared.
  • The circumcaval portion of the ureter was especially well seen on axial MRU sections, though this portion was routinely not visualized on IVU.
  • In one case with a ureteric calculus, MRU also depicted a circumcaval course of the ureter, thus providing a complete diagnosis.
  • In yet another case, where a circumcaval ureter was suspected on IVU, MRU proved the actual cause of ureteric obstruction to be a crossing vessel.
  • CONCLUSION: Static MRU using heavily T2-weighted coronal and axial sequences can make or exclude the diagnosis of circumcaval ureter unequivocally.

  • [Title] Laparoendoscopic single-site repair of retrocaval ureter: first case report.
  • OBJECTIVE: We describe a case of retrocaval ureter treated with laparoendoscopic single-site surgery (LESS).
  • Radiological imaging demonstrated hydronephrosis, suggesting the presence of a retrocaval ureter.
  • RESULTS: Retrograde pyelogram confirmed a classic appearance for retrocaval ureter.
  • The entire ureter was mobilized posterior to the vena cava and transected at the caudal-most point where the dilated portion of the proximal ureter ended.
  • The distal ureter was repositioned lateral to the inferior vena cava and spatulated laterally.
  • The proximal ureter was spatulated medially.
  • At the 3-month follow-up, diuretic radionuclide scan revealed no evidence of obstruction of the right kidney and the patient was symptom-free.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Albeit challenging, LESS repair for retrocaval ureter is a feasible procedure that can be considered as a treatment option for this rare anatomic anomaly.

  • [Title] Management of ureteric endometriosis associated with hydronephrosis: An Australian case series of 13 patients.
  • BACKGROUND: Hydronephrosis is a rare but serious manifestation of ureteric endometriosis.
  • Thirteen of the 126 women were identified as having ureteric obstruction at the time of their procedure and were included in the case series.
  • The point of ureteric obstruction was noted to occur most commonly at a small segment of distal left ureter, where it is crossed by the uterine artery (54%).
  • In all cases the hydronephrosis had resolved at six months follow up.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our findings support the growing body of literature supporting ureterolysis as the optimal treatment for ureteric endometriosis causing moderate to severe ureteric obstruction.

  • [Title] Retroperitoneal laparoscopic ureteroureterostomy for retrocaval ureter: report of 10 cases and literature review.
  • OBJECTIVES: To present our surgical techniques and experience with retroperitoneal laparoscopic ureteroureterostomy in 10 patients with retrocaval ureter and review the data on the laparoscopic management of retrocaval ureter published in English.
  • METHODS: A total of 10 patients with retrocaval ureter underwent laparoscopic ureteroureterostomy.
  • The retrocaval segment of ureter was mobilized and transposed anterior to the inferior vena cava.
  • At a mean follow-up of 52 months, remarkable improvement in the ureteral obstruction was observed.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our results indicate that retroperitoneal laparoscopic ureteroureterostomy is a safe and effective procedure, and an excellent minimally invasive treatment option for retrocaval ureter.
  • Moreover, a thorough review of published data supports our viewpoint that laparoscopic surgery should probably be the first-line treatment for retrocaval ureter.

  • OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effect of interferon (IFN)-? administration on renal interstitial fibrosis (RIF) and intrarenal vascular resistance of diseased kidneys in a reversible unilateral ureteral obstruction (RUUO) animal model.
  • RUUO was induced by clamping the left ureter using a small polyethylene tube.
  • The obstruction was reversed seven days after the operation by removing the tube.
  • RESULTS: The obstruction was successfully reversed in all animals.
  • Ureteral obstruction induced few lesions in the contralateral kidneys, and IFN-? administration had no significant effect on them, although it exerted an antifibrotic effect on the obstructed kidneys.
  • CONCLUSIONS: IFN-? administration restored or preserved renal histology and hemodynamics in an animal model of renal fibrosis after surgical reversal of hydronephrosis.

  • [Title] Metal ureteral stent for benign and malignant ureteral obstruction.
  • PURPOSE: Metal ureteral stents are a relatively new version of a device with a long history of relieving ureteral obstruction.
  • Metal stents are effective for relieving ureteral obstruction but success regarding patient tolerability has been variable.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: The charts of patients undergoing metal ureteral stent placement for chronic ureteral obstruction were reviewed.
  • Data collected included patient age, gender, diagnosis/cause of obstruction, laterality, duration of indwelling metal stent, number of routine metal stent changes, complications and early discontinuations or stent changes.
  • All metal stents were placed to relieve ureteral obstruction due to ureteral stricture, ureteropelvic junction obstruction, retroperitoneal fibrosis or extrinsic malignant obstruction.
  • There were 3 metal stent failures in 2 patients with malignant ureteral obstruction.
  • There were no complications, or early discontinuations or changes due to adverse symptoms, patient dissatisfaction, worsening renal function or progressive hydronephrosis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Metal ureteral stents are effective for benign and malignant ureteral obstruction in the absence of urolithiasis.
  • Good tolerability and annual stent exchange make metal stents an appealing alternative for patients with chronic ureteral obstruction treated with indwelling ureteral stents.

  • [Title] 'Hydronephrosis Tuberculous Etiology': Top Publications.
  • [Transliterated title]
  • Background: There are articles published each month which present 'hydronephrosis tuberculous etiology'.
  • Finding such articles is important for researchers, clinicians, and patients.
  • However these articles are spread across thousands of journals.
  • This makes searching and locating the relevant publications a challenge.
  • We have used BioMedLib's semantic search technology to address the issue, and gathered all the pertinent publications in this review article.
  • Methods: We categorized the publications we found.
  • We used the strength of textual-association to separate the groups.
  • In group one there are publications with the strongest evidence of association. We focused finding the most relevant publications pertinent to our goal, rather than combining them into a conclusion section. Such textual synthesis will be the focus of our next project.
  • Results: Group one includes 14 publications.
  • Here are the top 8.
