All films should incl tide kidneys buy 10 mg rizact otc, ureters and bladder areas cheap rizact 5mg without prescription, as fine changes in the ureters which imply the presence of vesico-ureteral reflux may be detected discount rizact 10mg with mastercard. It is advisable to inject additional radio-opaque medium if there is impaired concentration in the initial films. In infants and children the films should be taken at 3,5,8 and 12 minutes as their kidneys excrete the fluid more rapidly than do those of the adult. X-ray of the bladder region after voiding should be routine in all urologic patients. At the conclusion ofthe urography study, the patient is instructed to pass urine and a film of the bladder area is taken immediately. Excretory urogram is contraindicated in (i) allergic patients, (ii) multiple myeloma (the dye makes insoluble complex with Bence-Jones protein and precipitate in the renal tubules), (iii) congenital adrenal hyperplasia, (iv) diabetes and (v) primaiy hyperparathyroidism. Excretory urogram is a physiological as well as an anatomical test since it not only determines the function of the kidney but also clearly demonstrates the contour of the renal pelvis and calyces. The overlying gas and faecal material in the bowel can be eliminated in this method. Slices of kidney are seen beginning from posteriorly and gradually advancing anteriorly. For hydronephrosis more amount of medium is required, (e) Supine urogram is taken, developed and viewed. If filling is not complete, more dye is instilled before further X-rays are taken, (f) Oblique, lateral and upright radiograms are taken as indicated, (g) Pneumopyelography. A stone may show some opacification, but a tumour will not, but both these will cause a filling defect in the pelvis or calyx in excretory urogram. Under fluoroscopic or ultrasonic control an 18-gauge needle, 15 cm long should be passed into a dilated calyx or pelvis. It is better to pass the needle into a dilated calyx rather than pelvis as there will be a better seal round the needle track and less danger of puncturing large hilar vessels. Temporary drainage can also be provided with by a small plastic catheter introduced through the needle, which will be subsequently removed. Calyces — A normal calyx looks like a cup due to projection of the apices of the papillae into the calyces. Inward directed calyces suggest congenital abnormality such as horse-shoe shaped kidney. The right pelviureteric junction is situated opposite the transverse process of the second lumbar vertebra whereas the left is slightly higher up. The most important is the shape of the pelvis and the students must leam the normal shape of the pelvis. Also look at the position of the ureter, whether it is kinking or not and whether there is any congenital deformity or not. If these are not satisfactory to delineate clearly the pathological conditions of the bladder, retrograde cystogram may be required. Besides these, this test has a diagnostic value in rupture of the bladder and recurrent infection (vesico-ureteral reflux is the commonest cause of perpetuation of infection). This will also reveal function of the bladder neck, presence of posterior urethral valves or urethral stricture. A catheter is passed to the level of the renal arteries under fluoroscopic control. It is also possible to do the catheterisation through the brachial or axillary artery. Selective renal angiography is accomplished by passing a femoral catheter into one of the renal arteries under fluoroscopic control. About 8 ml of the contrast medium is injected and 16 exposures are taken within a few seconds. This technique gives detail demonstration of the arterial pattern in the kidney and thus differentiates efficiently between renal cyst and tumour. If this technique fails to differentiate in case of small lesion or becomes obscured by overlying arteries, epinephrine can first be injected into the catheter followed by instillation of radio-opaque medium. This technique causes spasm of normal vessels but has no effect on arteries in tumours. Embolisation of renal tumour deprives a tumour of its major blood supply so as to cause infarct and shrinkage of the tumour. This can be used preoperatively to minimise blood loss during subsequent nephrectomy particularly with large vascular tumours. This will also reduce showering of tumour cells into systemic circulation at the time of surgical handling. Such preoperative embolisation is also of value to avert severe haematuria from adenocarcinoma of kidney when the patient is unfit for surgery. A midstream aortogram and selective renal arteriogram should always precede embolisation. The catheter should have a single end hole and should be positioned as selectively as possible to avoid the problem of overspill of emboli and distal complications. Embolisation with autologus blood clot is the simplest and safest, which becomes lysed within a few days. Blood clot treated with epsikapron lasts longer and may be used as preoperative embolus. Sterisponge is a versatile agent, which is nothing but sterile absorbable gelatine sponge, which is easy to prepare and small pieces of these are injected through the catheter. It also does not cause permanent block and recanalisation occurs after a few weeks. If permanent occlusion is required, a small steel coil may be passed through the catheter. Small quantities of embolic material is injected, followed by check radiographs made with contrast to assess the flow and distribution. The major complication of therapeutic embolisation is inadvertent embolisation of normal tissue. Alternatively each hypogastric artery is selectively catheterized and 10 ml of radio-opaque fluid is injected.
Various adjuvants have been used in an attempt to improve the result of radical prostatectomy in locally advanced disease 5mg rizact fast delivery. Infiltration of the prostatic bed with radio-active colloidal gold (l98Au) has been supplemented with radical prostatectomy buy rizact 10mg on-line. Direct retropubic implantation of the prostatic tumour with 125I seeds has been tried purchase rizact 5mg otc. This will provide low energy irradiation (half life 60 days), in the tune of no less than 8,000 rads in two months. External beam radiation therapy should ensure a more satisfactory dose distribution and the field can be extended to include para-aortic and pelvic lymph nodes. Extended surgical excision, in this patient, should be reserved for the rare cases, who have failed with hormonal and other methods of treatment and yet continue to exhibit local growths, which are incapacitating but without evidence of metastasis. The main problem of this therapy is the increased incidence of cardiovascular deaths. The question still exists whether these cardiovascular problems, caused by stilboestrol, are dose dependent or not. The effect starts as early as 48 hours of commencing the treatment and symptomatic changes occur even within 2 weeks. But stilboestrol is notorious to produce cardio vascular calamities which may lead to even death of the patient. To minimise the side effects of stilboestrol, Honvan (Phosphorylated diethylstilboestrol) may be administered orally or intravenously. The dose is increased to 200 mg and eventually to 500 and to 1,000 mg on 21 st day. The dosage is then gradually decreased until one 200 mg injection given weekly or even monthly. Nowadays subcctpsular bilateral orchidectomy is performed as an alternative or an adjuvant to the stilboestrol therapy. Those patients who may eventually relapse and may present problems, should be treated with bilateral adrenalectomy or medical suppression of the adrenals with cortisone 50 to 75 mg daily or pituitary ablation by surgical hypophysectomy or cryosurgery or by needle implantation with radio-active yttrium needles. For extensive skeletal metastasis, intrave nous radio-active phosphorus ( P)32 should be given. Progestogens have the attraction that they inhibit androgen production and do not produce feminisation. Medroxyprogesterone (Provera) was shown to have lot of advantages over 1 mg stilboestrol daily. Cyproterone acetate, which blocks adrenal and testicular androgens, is undoubtedly effective but it is an expensive drug and does not have much advantage over stilboestrol. In the first few days (10 days or so) serum testosterone level may increase and during this period it is better to give cyproterone acetate. This peptide is rapidly degraded in the gastrointestinal tract, thus requiring a parenteral mode of delivery. Two daily parenteral formations leuprolide (Lupron) and goserelin (Zoladex) have gained widespread support. Leuprolide is given by daily subcutaneous injections or a depot preparation of Zoladex is given 3. Another drug, flutamide, which is a pure antiandrogen is being currently used in this condition. An interesting approach to chemotherapy has been to combine the drug with the hormone. For example oestrogen in combination with the alkylating agent nitrogen mustard (Estracyt) was designed to be transported to the site of tumour and there causes release of cytotoxic drugs in high concentration. A transverse incision is made on the anterior surface of the bladder just above the base of the prostate. The entire prostate with its fascial sheath and the seminal vesicles is removed in one piece. The nearby lymph nodes should be dissected and included in the removal of the prostate. The vesical outlet is now united to the membranous urethra over an indwelling catheter. So in majority of cases infection is haematogenous, but in a few cases infecting organisms ascend through the urethra to involve the prostate. Microscopically, the acini and ducts are destroyed and replaced by abundant exudate. The stroma is infiltrated with polymorphonuclear leucocytes, lymphocytes, plasma cells and multinucleated giant-cells. The microscopic feature very much resembles plasma cell mastitis or chronic thyroiditis. Purulent urethral discharge may be noted which is described as urine containing threads. When the prostatic abscess develops, the temperature rises sharply and the patient often feels rigor. There is severe perineal and rectal pain often with tenesmus to be confused with anorectal abscess. But rectal examination reveals a hot, enlarged and extremely tender prostate which is softened in one place. In granulomatous form, the prostate is enlarged and indurated, thus simulating carcinoma. The only exception to this rule is to relieve acute urinary retention due to prostatic oedema or abscess. Acute cystitis and even pyelonephritis—due to ascending infection or spread of infection by haematogenous route. This is particularly apt to happen if the prostate is massaged or if instrumentation is performed during acute stage. Acute epididymitis may also occur due to prostatic massage or instrumentation in acute stage. Prostatic abscess, if forms and remains untreated, may rupture spontaneously into the urethra or rectum or perineum.
