The “Guidewire-Coil”-Technique to prevent retrograde stone migration of ureteric calculi during intracorporeal lithothripsy

Background Stone retropulsion represents a challenge for intracorporeal lithotripsy of ureteral calculi. The consequences are an increased duration and cost of surgery as well as decreased stone-free rates. The use of additional tools to prevent proximal stone migration entails further costs and risks for ureteral injuries. We present the simple technique of using a coil of the ...

Long-term experience of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for refractory radio- or chemotherapy-induced haemorrhagic cystitis

Background Radiotherapy and cyclophosphamide-induced haemorrhagic cystitis are rare but severe complications occurring in 3–6% of patients. Hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment for haematuria not responding to conventional management. Only very few data exist for long-term follow-up after HBOT. Methods We retrospectively reviewed 15 ...


Introduction and Aims: The stratification of chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients, to identify those at high risk of poor outcomes, requires tests that individually assess kidney function, kidney injury and systemic inflammation. Due to the limitations of the individual markers, here we evaluate a marker of immune status and kidney function, combined polyclonal serum free light ...
