- adj. Relating to endourology
Sorry, no etymologies found.
He has certification by the Endourological Society and Johns Hopkins Hospital for specialization in robotic surgery, laparoscopic surgery and endourological surgery of the kidneys, prostate, bladder, and ureter.
Here we describe the case of a renal transplantation patient with a forgotten ureteric stent of 10 years, who presented with irritative bladder symptoms and was successfully managed using a multimodal endourological approach with specialist advice on antibiotic prophylaxis.
This case demonstrates that multimodal treatment involving a combination of endourological and percutaneous techniques can be employed with success even when the patient has a heavily encrusted stent for a single functioning transplanted kidney.
