This is a single institution, prospective study to evaluate the prognostic significance of renal and bladder ultrasound with ureteral jet assessment and its utility to evaluate the spontan...
The purpose of this study is to determine the clinical effects of a triclosan stent on adherent bacteria, stent biofilms, and patient urine cultures in patients with an indwelling triclosa...
Silodosin is compared to placebo to determine if it is safe and effective for the treatment of nighttime urination (nocturia) in men with BPH
Patients with upper ureteral or renal stones will be randomized to undergoing ureteroscopy with or without a ureteral access sheath. The sheath is designed to facilitate ureteroscope inser...
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of silodosin and tadalafil in ease of negotiation of large size ureteroscope (8/9.8 Fr) in the management of ureteral stone.
Non-contrast computed tomography (NCCT) is not always performed clinically if the diagnosis of ureteral calculi has been confirmed using other radiographic imaging modalities. The aim of this study wa...
To evaluate predictive factors for retrograde ureteral stent failure in patients with non-urological malignant ureteral obstruction.
Ureteral injury represents an uncommon but potentially morbid complication surgical complication. This study sought to characterize the complications of iatrogenic ureteral injury and assess the effec...
The comparative effectiveness of ureteral stents placed during ureteroscopy for urinary stone disease is widely debated. We sought to evaluate unplanned medical visits within the early post-operative ...
Stones in the URETER that are formed in the KIDNEY. They are rarely more than 5 mm in diameter for larger renal stones cannot enter ureters. They are often lodged at the ureteral narrowing and can cause excruciating renal colic.
Renal calculi with a characteristic shape like antlers of a deer, formed as it extends into multiple calices of the RENAL PELVIS. A large number of staghorn calculi as well as other URINARY CALCULI are composed of STRUVITE.
The insertion of a catheter through the skin and body wall into the kidney pelvis, mainly to provide urine drainage where the ureter is not functional. It is used also to remove or dissolve renal calculi and to diagnose ureteral obstruction.
Presence of small calculi in the terminal salivary ducts (salivary sand), or stones (larger calculi) found in the larger ducts.
Absence of urine formation. It is usually associated with complete bilateral ureteral (URETER) obstruction, complete lower urinary tract obstruction, or unilateral ureteral obstruction when a solitary kidney is present.
