  • Medial Renal Ptosis: First Radiographic Documentation With Computed Tomography. [Case Reports]
    Urology 2019; 126:e1-e2Leong JY, Teplitsky S, Shenot PJ
  • Medial renal ptosis is the abnormal mobility of the kidney towards or across the midline of the body. Historically, this phenomenon is evaluated by observing abnormal mobility in the lateral decubitus position during intravenous pyelography. Here, we present the first radiographic documentation of this anomaly on computed tomography on a 34-year-old female who experienced an intermittent abdomina…
  • Clinical reappraisal and state of the art of nephropexy. [Review]
    Urologia 2018; 85(4):135-144Mogorovich A, Selli C, … Urbani L
  • The diffusion of minimally invasive techniques for renal surgery has prompted a renewed interest in nephropexy which is indicated to prevent nephroptosis in symptomatic patients and to mobilize the upper ureter downward in order to bridge a ureteral defect. Recent publications have been reviewed to present the state of the art of the diagnosis and management of these two challenging conditions an…
  • Robot-Assisted Nephropexy. [Case Reports]
    Int Braz J Urol 2018 Sep-Oct; 44(5):1047-1048Wroclawski ML, Peixoto GA, … Colombo JR
  • CONCLUSIONS: Robotic-assisted nephropexy is feasible and can be an excellent minimally invasive alternative technique for the proposed surgery. We reported a shorter hospital stay and a faster postoperative recovery compared with the opened procedure.
  • Giant hydronephrosis: still a reality! [Journal Article]
    Turk J Urol 2017; 43(3):337-344Kaura KS, Kumar M, … Sankhwar S
  • CONCLUSIONS: GH requires early diagnosis and management to prevent higher nephrectomy rate along with poor success rate of conservative surgery like pyeloplasty.
  • Long-term Graft Survival After Kidney Allograft Torsion: Rapid Diagnosis and Surgical Management Key to Reversibility of Injury. [Case Reports]
    Transplant Proc 2017; 49(7):1565-1569Serrano OK, Olowofela AS, … Riad S
  • CONCLUSIONS: This case illustrates the reversibility of injury that can occur after a KAT event with a commensurate return to baseline kidney function when KAT is promptly diagnosed and treated. A high index of suspicion of this uncommon but catastrophic complication of KT must be maintained to achieve desirable long-term outcomes. A diagnosis of KAT must be considered when routine etiologies of an acute deterioration of kidney allograft function have been excluded. Finally, prophylactic nephropexy must be strongly considered with intraperitoneal placement of a kidney allograft to avoid KAT.
