Destro F. et al, 2020: Minimally Invasive Approaches in Pediatric Urolithiasis. The Experience of Two Italian Centers of Pediatric Surgery

Abstract

Background: Over the last 30 years, the incidence of pediatric urolithiasis (PU) has been increasing and the surgical management has evolved toward a minimally invasive approach (MIA). We reported the experience of two Centers of Pediatric Surgery in the management of PU, focusing on MIA as first choice in treatment.

Methods: Data were retrospectively analyzed from October 2009 to October 2019 in children with urolithiasis who were admitted to two referral Italian Centers of Pediatric Surgery. Demographic and clinical data of the patients, features of the urolithiasis, type of surgery were considered.

Results: Seventy patients (7.3 ± 5.0 years) with normal renal function were treated for calculi in the pyelocaliceal system (45.7%), ureter (34.3%), bladder (4.3%), urethra (1.4%), and multiple locations (14.3%). Size of calculi was >10 mm in 55.7% of cases (kidney>bladder/urethra>multiple>ureter, p = 0.01). Symptoms were present in 75.7% of patients. Family history was positive in 16.9% of cases. MIA was performed in 59 patients (84.3%): 11.8% shockwave lithotripsy (kidney>ureter>multiple); 32.2% ureteral retrograde surgery (ureteral>other localizations); 30.5% retrograde intrarenal surgery (kidney>other localizations); and 25.4% other procedures including percutaneous nephrolithotomy, cystoscopic bladder stone removal or laser cystolithotripsy (kidney>bladder>multiple). Preoperative stenting was necessary in 52.8% of cases. Four MIA procedures (6.9%, kidney>ureter/multiple) were converted to open surgery. Open surgery was required as first approach in 15.7% of patients (kidney>ureter>multiple) who needed urgent surgery or had associated congenital renal anomalies. In 18/70 of children (25.7%), with prevalence of stones in kidney and multiple location (p < 0.01), a second procedure completed the treatment (88.8% MIA). Intraoperative difficulties were recorded in 8.5% of cases, without difference between location and size of calculi. Late complications (5.7%) were related to displacement and infection of the ureteral stent.

Conclusions: MIA resulted to be feasible in more than 75% of primary surgery and in more than 85% of cases requiring a second procedure. Preoperative stent was mandatory in more than 50% of children. The technological evolution allowed to overcome many of the technical difficulties related to the approach to the papilla and lower calyxes. Open surgery is reserved for selected cases and endoscopic surgery represents the best choice of treatment for PU.

Ermis O. et al., 2020: Definition, treatment and outcome of residual fragments in staghorn stones

Abstract

Technological advances in minimally invasive treatment of stone disease and its integration with concomitant clinical practice are amongst the most important achievements in urology. Despite the wealth of information accumulated over the years and the richness of existing literature, the knowledge about the definition, treatment and outcomes of residual stone fragments after percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL) is still insufficient. Due to the high stone load a lot of patients with staghorn stones have residual fragments (RFs) after treatment with PNL, which depends on the size of tract, definition of stone free rate (SFR), timing of evaluation and the imaging used. No consensus exists on the imaging modality or their timing in the evaluation of possible RFs. The treatment of residual stones is apparently different depending on the facilities of the department and the preference of the surgeon, which includes active surveillance, shock wave lithotripsy (SWL), retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) or a second look PNL.

Salvi M. et al., 2020: Active treatment of renal stones in Pelvic Ectopic Kidney: systematic review of literature

Abstract

Purpose: To identify the role of Doppler US (DUS) in the prediction of factors affecting stone-clearance post-SWL for ureteral stones in addition to its role in prediction of pretreatment stone impaction.

Methods: We prospectively included patients with ureteric stone for SWL between October 2018 and September 2019. Patient's demographics were collected. Using DUS, resistive index (RI), Δ RI, and ureteric jets were evaluated in both kidneys. Also, stone site, volume, density, skin to stone distance, degree of hydronephrosis, ureteral wall thickness (UWT) were evaluated by NCCT. Univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses were performed to identify factors that contribute to treatment success. Correlation between ipsilateral RI with other radiological findings predicting stone impaction was done.

Results: A total of 93 patients were finally included (61 males and 32 females). The mean age was 31.4 ± 7.7 years. The success rate (absence of significant residuals post 1 month by NCCT) was 51.6%. In multivariate analysis, the presence of ureteric jet, ipsilateral lower RI, and ipsilateral lower UWT were independent factors for treatment success (P = 0.0001, 0.002, and 0.03, respectively). Also, ipsilateral absence of ureteric jet, increased hydronephrosis, and increased UWT were correlated with higher ipsilateral RI in prediction of stone impaction. Ipsilateral higher RI was found to achieve higher accuracy in stone impaction prediction (PPV of 94.8%).

Conclusion: Pretreatment DUS is a useful, non-invasive with a less irradiative tool for prediction of stone impaction and stone-free rate post-SWL for ureteric stones.
