Initially, a spiral computed tomographic angiography of the renal arteries was conducted, demonstrating completely abnormal left renal artery at the medial portion of the vessel with suspicious stenosis, which was supposed to be due to fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD). Subsequently, the patient underwent selective renal angiography and balloon angioplasty. Severe stenosis was observed on the left side and moderate stenosis on the right side in the medial and proximal part of the vessels, respectively. After the diagnosis of FMD, the left side was treated by balloon and finally, the patient was discharged with good control of blood pressure by losartan/amlodipine treatment.</p> Ramezan Jafari, Zohreh Rostami, Mohammad Nikpoor, Mohammad Javanbakht, Mohsen Sadeghi Ghahroudi, Mahbobeh Sadat Hosseini, Behzad Einollahi ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 14 Jan 2020 12:13:17 +0000 Right open nephrectomy under combined spinal and peridural operative anesthesia and analgesia (CSE): A new anesthetic approach in abdominal surgery <p>A case of right open nephrectomy performed under combined spinal and epidural anesthesia and analgesia was presented. This new anesthetic technique gives significant advantages to the patient by avoiding endotracheal intubation with mechanical ventilation and curare administration and by reducing the use of opioids.</p> Michele Cotugno, Matteo Dallaglio, Luca Cantadori, Fabio Villani, Daniel Martens, Federico Cantoni, Michele Potenzoni, Salvatore Micali, M.C.

Kidney salvage is desirable. Renal autotransplantation is a final option for some cases. In this case, we report an autotransplantation of the kidney after an iatrogenic injury of the ureter with totally extraperitoneal approach.<br>Case report: A 41 years old female underwent left endoscopic ureterolithotomy with holmium laser for ureteral calculi. An iatrogenic ureteral injury, probably ureteral avulsion, occurred. After multiple interventions, she referred to us with a nephrostomy tube. Imaging was performed and left renal autotransplantation was chosen as surgical management. The approach was totally extraperitoneal. No alteration of renal function or of urine outflow was observed during the follow up.<br>Conclusions: The report supports the safety and efficacy of renal autotransplantation.</p> Napoleon Moulavasilis, Ioannis Katafigiotis, Dimitris Staios, Christos Nikolaidis, Spyridon Vernadakis, John Bokos, Ioannis Anastasiou ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 14 Jan 2020 10:37:53 +0000
