Renal calyceal rupture and perirenal urinary extravasation from complete procidentia.
Summary of "Renal calyceal rupture and perirenal urinary extravasation from complete procidentia."
Genital prolapse is common among ageing women. Urinary obstruction and hydronephrosis have been reported as one of the most severe and fortunately uncommon complications. An 82-year-old multiparous woman with symptomatic pelvic organ prolapse quantification stage 4 genital procidentia fails multiple trials of pessary and abandons the trials due to significant side effects. She chooses to pursue conservative management with estrogen cream and tight underwear. However, she fails to follow up as planned. Two years later, she presents with acute abdomen and renal failure due to renal calyceal rupture and perirenal urinary extravasation from complete procidentia. She is treated promptly with urinary catheter, manual prolapse reduction, and Gellhorn pessary which relieves anuria and stabilizes her condition. She then receives definitive surgical treatment 2 weeks later. Her renal failure and abdominal pain resolve post-operatively.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Complete or partial surgical removal of the prostate. Three primary approaches are commonly employed: suprapubic - removal through an incision above the pubis and through the urinary bladder; retropubic - as for suprapubic but without entering the urinary bladder; and transurethral (TRANSURETHRAL RESECTION OF PROSTATE).
An autosomal inherited disorder due to defective reabsorption of GLUCOSE by the PROXIMAL RENAL TUBULES. The urinary loss of glucose can reach beyond 50 g/day. It is attributed to the mutations in the SODIUM-GLUCOSE TRANSPORTER 2 encoded by the SLC5A2 gene.
A severe pain in the lower back radiating to the groin, scrotum, and labia which is most commonly caused by a kidney stone (RENAL CALCULUS) passing through the URETER or by other urinary track blockage. It is often associated with nausea, vomiting, fever, restlessness, dull pain, frequent urination, and HEMATURIA.
Disease-related laceration or tearing of tissues of the heart, including the free-wall MYOCARDIUM; HEART SEPTUM; PAPILLARY MUSCLES; CHORDAE TENDINEAE; and any of the HEART VALVES. Pathological rupture usually results from myocardial infarction (HEART RUPTURE, POST-INFARCTION).
The tearing or bursting of the wall along any portion of the AORTA, such as thoracic or abdominal. It may result from the rupture of an aneurysm or it may be due to TRAUMA.

BACKGROUND: Many interfering factors may reduce the reliability of waist circumference (WC) measurement in estimating the risk for chronic kidney disease (CKD) associated with obesity. Therefore, we d...
We report a very rare case of intra-peritoneal spontaneous rupture of the urinary bladder which was successfully managed conservatively in a 77-year-old woman, who presented with lower abdominal pain,...
