Shockwave Lithotripsy (SWL) Under Selective, General Anesthesia.

2014-08-27 03:18:10 | BioPortfolio


SWL is widely used in the treatment of patients with renal and ureteral calculi. Several factors determine the success of extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (SWL) for kidney stones: stone size, stone location within the collecting system, stone type, and the SWL machine used. Moreover, in some cases it is very difficult to focus on the stone because of its movement as a results of breathing. In order to prevent stone movement we want to use a bronchial blocker, processing a selective ventilation of the opposite side of stone location.

SMP vs RIRS for Symptomatic Lower Pole Renal Calculi of 10-20 mm Size: a Randomized Controlled Trial

Shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) is recommended for kidney stones < 20 mm. However, the stone clearance of lower pole calculi after SWL is limited, thus leading to an extended indication for m...

The Effect of Three Endourological Procedures for the Management of Renal Calculi Regarding Acute Kidney Injury

The main aim of the study is to investigate and compare the possible acute effect of standard PCNL, mini-PCNL and RIRS on renal function. Secondary aims are to investigate the efficacy (st...

Evaluation of Pain Before and After Removal of Non-obstructive Kidney Stones

Pain associated with renal stone disease is typically caused by an obstructing stone that obstructs the flow of urine, which results in renal collecting system dilatation. Non-obstructing ...

Attached Stone Project: Do Calcium Oxalate Renal Calculi Originate From Randall's Plaque?

Urolithiasis is a common condition in the United States, and is associated with significant morbidity and even mortality. The most commonly occurring urinary calculi are comprised of calc...

Tip-flexible Semi-rigid Ureterorenoscope Versus Flexible Ureteroscopy in Renal Calculi

This study evaluates the safety and efficacy of the novel tip-flexible semi-rigid ureterorenoscope for the treatment of renal calculi using a prospective, randomized multicentre trial desi...

Efficacies of Various Surgical Regimens in the Treatment of Renal Calculi Patients: a Network Meta-Analysis in 25 Enrolled Controlled Clinical Trials.

Renal calculi, or kidney stones, are masses made of crystals that affect people of all geographical, cultural, and racial groups. We conduct this study with the aim of comparing the efficacy of variou...

Can we predict the outcome of oral dissolution therapy for radiolucent renal calculi? ; A prospective study.

To prospectively, assess the efficacy and predictors of success of oral dissolution therapy (ODT) by alkalinization for lucent renal calculi.

18F-NaF PET/CT in Prostatic Calculi.

Primary prostatic calculi commonly present asymptomatically in men over the age of 50 years. Individual calculi form when the secretory tube is blocked by inflammation, prostatic secretions, or corpor...

Super-mini percutaneous nephrolithotomy (SMP) versus retrograde intrarenal surgery for the treatment of 1-2 cm lower-pole renal calculi: an international multicenter randomized controlled trial.

To compare the safety and efficacy of super-mini-percutaneous nephrolithotomy (SMP) and retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) for the treatment of 1-2 cm lower-pole renal calculi (LPC).

Simultaneous Bilateral Ureteral Calculi: A New Paradigm for Management.

To define the need for emergent intervention between patients with SBUC compared to unilateral ureteral calculi (UUC). Patients with simultaneous bilateral ureteral calculi (SBUC) represent a potentia...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

Presence of small calculi in the terminal salivary ducts (salivary sand), or stones (larger calculi) found in the larger ducts.

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.

Calculi occurring in a salivary gland. Most salivary gland calculi occur in the submandibular gland, but can also occur in the parotid gland and in the sublingual and minor salivary glands.
