Parastomal Hernia as a Risk Factor for Ileal Conduit Fistulae  [PDF]
Thomas A. A Skinner, Richard W Norman
International Journal of Clinical Medicine (IJCM) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ijcm.2011.23048
Abstract: Purpose: To review potential risk factors for the development of ileal conduit fistulae. Methods: Two patients were identified who had a remote history of an ileal conduit and who formed a fistula from the conduit—one to the small bowel and one to the skin. Their presentation, management and outcomes are described. Results: Both patients had parastomal hernias as the likely cause of their fistula formation. Discussion: Parastomal herniation may contribute to fistula formation due to a strangulated ischemic pressure necrosis of the adjacent ileal conduit and/or bowel.

Abstract: Genito Urinary Fistula is an abnormal communication between the urinary and genital tract.Vesico vaginal Fistula (VVF) is the commonest type. Setting: Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, LadyWillingdon Hospital, Lahore Period: From Jan 2000 to Dec 2003. Patients & Methods: Forty seven (47)patients admitted with genitourinary Fistula (GUF). Twenty-five out of 47 cases were in third decade of theirlife and 19 women were Para 5 or more. Majority of the patients (37 out of 47) had fistula due to obstetricaltrauma. Results: Among the 43 cases repaired, 95% were done through the vaginal route. Overall success ratewas 88.5%. Discussion & Conclusions: Prevention of obstetric fistula poses a great challenge for obstetriciansin developing countries. It should be the highest priority of reproductive health care. Efforts should be directedtowards creating awareness, better education and provision of emergency obstetric care at the grass root level.Physicians, philanthropists and public should also take initiative in this regard.

Open Journal of Urology (OJU) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/oju.2011.14018
Abstract: Anthogranulomatous cystitis (XC) is an inflammatory condition of the urinary bladder that is benign and rarely seen. XC is a unique disease in which there have been only 26 cases described in the literature, including our case. Patients with XC often present with lower urinary tract symptoms, hematuria, abdominal pain, or abdominal mass. We present the unusual case of an 81 year old female who presents with urinary incontinence, which was later diagnosed as a vesicovaginal fistula. After describing the treatment of this patient, a review of the literature is detailed including presentation, possible etiologies, and treatment of XC.

Abstract: the vesicogenital fistula are abnormal communications between female genitalia and urinary bladder. we recorded all the vesicogenital fistula diagnosed since 1986, analyzing aetiology, treatment applied, complications and results. total number of fistula have been 20 (18 vesicovaginal and 2 vesicouterine). the distribution in vesicovaginal fistula was iatrogenic in 15 cases (83%) and tumoral in 3 cases (17%). vesicouterine fistula were due to cesarea. the initial treatment of the iatrogenic fistula was conservative using foley catheter. twenty percent of the patients were cured with this treatment (3 cases). surgical repair was necessary for the other patients, using different surgical approach according to the type of the fistula, intensity and patient age. it was successful in 91% of the patients. the results shows that simple surgical approach generate less morbidity and the early intervention is not less efficient.

Abstract: iliocovesical fistulas are infrequent complications of abdominal aortic aneurysms (aaa). we report the case of a 76 year-old male with a contained ruptured aneurysm of the iliac to the urinary bladder. complaints on presentation were abdominal pain and hematuria; suspected iliacovesical fistula was reported on a computed tomography (ct) scan, which was confirmed during laparotomy. the patient died 20 days after the procedure due to mixed distributive septic shock.

Chun-Hsiang Ou Yang, Keng-Hao Liu, Tse-Ching Chen, Phei-Lang Chang, Ta-Sen Yeh
World Journal of Gastroenterology , 2009,
Abstract: Enterovesical fistulas are not uncommon in patients with inflammatory or malignant colonic disease, however, fistulas secondary to primary bladder carcinomas are extremely rare. We herein reported a patient presenting with intractable urinary tract infection due to enterovesical fistula formation caused by a squamous cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder. This patient underwent en bloc resection of the bladder dome and involved ileum, and recovered uneventfully without urinary complaint. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case reported in the literature.

Abstract: objectives: urinary fistula is a morbid complication after renal transplantation leading to graft losses and patient death. we review and update our data on urinary fistula after renal transplantation and the outcome after surgical and conservative management. materials and methods: the charts of 1046 renal transplants were reviewed. transplants were performed through an extended inguinotomy; vascular anastomoses to the iliac vessels and urinary reconstruction accomplished through the gregoir technique. fistulae were diagnosed by urinary leaks through the incision or by the occurrence of a collection in the iliac fossa. patient was treated surgically or conservatively according to the characteristics of the fistula and patient clinical status. results: thirty one fistulae were diagnosed (2.9%). twenty nine leaks due to ureteral necrosis and 2 due to reimplantation fault. the incidence of leaks among cadaver and live donor transplants was 3.22% and 2.63%, respectively (p = 0.73). among diabetic and non diabetic patients the incidence of urinary leaks was 6.4% and 2.6%, respectively (p = 0.049). treatment consisted in anastomosis of the graft ureter or pelvis with the ureter of the recipient in 17 cases with success in 13 (76.5%). prolonged bladder drainage was employed in 7 cases and the fistula healed in 4 (57%). ureteral reimplantation was performed in 3 cases and did not work in any of them. ureteral ligature plus nephrostomy was employed in two cases and worked in one (50%). percutaneous nephrostomy and ureteral stenting with double j catheter were employed in one case each and worked in both. conclusions: the anastomosis of the graft ureter with the ureter of the recipient is a good method for treating urinary fistulae after renal transplantation when local and systemic conditions are good. ureteral ligature associated to nephrostomy should be applied in cases of unfavorable local conditions or clinically unstable patients.
