Objectives. Proximity of ureters with iliac arteries makes them prone to damage by aorto-iliac pathology or surgery. The aim of this retrospective study is to analyse the incidence, the predisposing factors, and the optimal treatment Of ureteral stenosis (US) or leakages (UL). Design. Retrospective study. Material. Fiftyone ureteral lesions in 41 patients referred to the urologist in a fourteen years period in the same institution. Methods. Lesions are classified in three groups: A, preoperative; B, less than 3 months postoperatively; and C, more than 3 months postoperatively. Group A comprises 10 abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) patients; eight of the AAA are of the inflammatory type. Group B comprises 16 patients, 11 US and 9 UL. Group C comprises 15 patients and 15 US. Results. Endoureteral treatment was successful in most of the group B patients. Some of them, however, had to be submitted to secondary open surgery, so that the global success rate is 70% in group B. In group C, the response is poor following endourological treatment alone (12.5% success) and open surgery is more often needed (3 ureterolyses and 1 nephrectomy). Global success rate is 40%. Conclusion. Early diagnosis is associated to better results with less invasive procedure, late diagnosis is accompanied by a lower success rate of endourological treatment and requires more often primary open surgery.

OBJECTIVES: in patients with vascular prosthesis infection, to compare surgical outcome and long-term results of cryopreserved allograft implantations to conventional surgery. DESIGN: retrospective study. MATERIAL AND METHODS: two asynchronous series of 44 [series I: 1980-1994; 8 patients with aortoenteric fistula (AEF)] and 22 (series II: 1994-1997; 4 patients with AEF) patients were treated for prosthesis infection. All patients had prosthesis excision. In series I, there were 4 in situ reparations, 26 extra-anatomic bypass, 13 excision only, and one death at laparotomy. In series II, in situ cryopreserved allografts were implanted in all patients. RESULTS: operative mortality was 16% in series I and 13.6% in series II. For AEF patients, mortality was 37% in series I and 50% in series II. Among hospital survivors, infection-related late mortality was 13.5% in series I and 5% in series II. For AEF patients, late mortality was 20% in series I and 50% in series II. Incidence of reoperations was 54% in series I and 10.5% in series II (p<0.01). Hospital stay was 47.2+/-26.4 days in series I and 16.6+/-11.5 days in series II (p<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: compared to conventional treatment, incidence of reoperations and length of hospital stay are significantly decreased after cryopreserved allograft implantation. However, closure of aortic stump and extra-anatomic bypass gives better results for patients with AEF. [less ▲]

Background: aneurysmal disease is associated with all inflammatory Cell infiltrate and enzymatic degradation of the vessel wall. Aim of the study: to detect increased metabolic activity in abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) by means of positron emission tomography (PET-imaging). Study design: twenty-six patients with AAA underwent PET-imaging Results: in tell patients, PET-imaging revealed increased, fluoro-deoxy-glucose (18-FDG) uptake at the level of the aneurysm. Patients with positive PET-imaging had one or more of the following elements in their clinical history: history Of recent non-aortic surgery (n = 4) a painful inflammatory aortic aneurysm (n = 2). moderate low back pain (n = 2), rapid (>5 mm in 6 months) expansion (n = 4), discovery by PET-scan of a previously undiagnosed lung cancer (n = 3) or parotid tumour (n = 1). Five patients with a positive PET scan required urgent surgery within two to 30 days. Among the 16 patients with negative PET-imaging of their aneurysm, only one had recent non-aortic surgery, none of them required urgent surgery, only two had a rapidly expanding AAA, and in only one patient, PET-imaging revealed an unknown lung cancer. Conclusion: these data suggest a possible association between increased 18-FDG uptake and AAA expansion and rupture. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVES: To assess whether acute renal failure, due to total or subtotal renal artery occlusion, can be reversed by kidney revascularisation. DESIGN: A retrospective review of surgery for kidney salvage in anuric patients at a University Hospital. METHODS: From 1983 to 1993, eight patients were operated on for occlusive renal artery disease as a cause of acute renal failure, requiring preoperative haemodialysis. On admission the mean serum creatinine was 40 mg/l (354 mumol/dl). The oligoanuria lasted from 12 h to 3 weeks. Renal length of 8 cm or more and visualisation of a patent distal renal artery branches on aortography were arguments that return of renal function could be expected after revascularisation of these non-functioning kidneys. RESULTS: Revascularisation restored immediate urine flow in six cases, with no further need for dialysis in four. Two patients remained oliguric despite successful reperfusion. One of them could be weaned from dialysis after 1 month. Two patients died postoperatively. Five of the eight patients left the hospital with restored renal function. CONCLUSIONS: Patients with acute renal function deterioration due to ischemia of a single or both kidneys can benefit from prompt revascularisation, with significant recovery of renal function in most of them.
