My email alert The bladder is an uncommon site of urinary tract calculi in most Western countries, but bladder stones result in specific symptoms and are a significant source of discomfort. This article discusses.. , a sub-panel of the EAU Urolithiasis Guidelines Panel, has prepared these guidelines to help urologists assess evidence-based management of calculi in native urinary bladders and urinary tract reconstructions and to incorporate recommendations into clinical practice
bladder stones in endemic areas.2 Bladder calculi in children in the absence of obstruction, infection or neurogenic disease are considered to be endemic.3 In the 19th century, bladder calculi accounted for 80% of urolithiasis in Europe. Paediatric bladder stones have been a very frequent disease worldwide; including Europe until 20th century.4. Bladder calculi are divided into migrant, primary endemic, and secondary types. 1 Migrant calculi are the most common, forming in the kidney and migrating down the ureter into the bladder. Once in the bladder, they are usually mobile and, if imaged before they pass, they will fall to a dependent position Stone in the bladder is frequent in the Menam valley, as it is in that of the Canton river and the Nile. The author discusses shortly its causes, the age distribution and diagnosis, and at length measures for its relief. Lithotomy is preferred to lithotrity on the grounds that the patients are of a slight build so that the usual instruments are too large; nearly half are under the age of 15. childhood bladder stones-an endemic disease of developing countries August 17, 2015 BACKGROUND - Bladder calculi are one of the commonest health problems in young children especially in rural and underprivileged areas 46.Teotia M, Teotia SPS, Singh DP, Singh CV (1983) Chronic ingestion of natural fluoride and endemic bladder stone disease.

Such a composition of stones is virtually specific to laxative abuse . In developing countries, Type IIId stones are mainly found in children (mostly boys) with endemic bladder stones . Ammonium urate is still observed as the major component of the core of these stones in these countries Endemic bladder stones (uric acid and ammonium acid urate) are rare in the United States, though common in developing countries. The southeast region of the United States has a higher frequency of kidney stone formation in adults than do other regions of the United States. The reason for a higher incidence of stone formation in the southern. Urolithiasis with AAU crystals can be classified as endemic or sporadic. Endemic cases are still observed in developing countries, and AAU urolithiasis was frequently seen at the beginning of the 20th century, particularly bladder calculi in children Twenty children with endemic vesical stones showed normal plasma and urinary excretion of fluoride on a mean fluoride intake of 2.5 +/- 0.8 mg/24 h. The mean fluoride content of the stones obtained from these children was 315.6 +/- 264.9 micrograms/g in the nucleus and 229.9 +/- 212.8 micrograms/g in the periphery (this was not statistically.

There are three principal types of bladder stones: primary endemic, which occur in the absence of other urinary tract pathologies and are associated with poor nutrition; secondary stones that. Of those who develop stone, 50% will have a recurrence of forming another stone within the next six years. Urolithiasis is quite common in developing and under developed countries, where the recurrence of endemic bladder stone is quite common due to the dietary proteins Endemic primary bladder stones occur in some places but not nowin others, although at one time their incidence was much more wide-spread. In Ubol Hospital, in northeast Thailand, between 1960 and 1962, one boypatient in three had a bladder stone. Most occurred in boys under 5 years of age. The number of kidney stones, almost all in adults, was. Endemic primary bladder stones occur in some places but not now in others, although at one time their incidence was much more wide-spread. In Ubol Hospital, in northeast Thailand, between 1960 and 1962, one boy patient in three had a bladder stone. Most occurred in boys under 5 year
Urinary bladder stones is an endemic disease that should be taken with the utmost seriousness. When you discover any signs listed above , do well to visit your doctor as soon as possible for proper diagnosis and treatment Bladder calculi are grouped into three basic categories: primary idiopathic/endemic, secondary, and migrant. The incidence of vesical calculi has declined significantly in the last 70 years in developed nations owing to improvements in nutrition and socioeconomic conditions, but it is still high in developing nations 1) Always recurs after surgery, 2) Made up of ammonium acid urate sometimes mixed with ca oxalate, 3) predominantly associated with children having cereal based diet, 4) Peak incidence in children 3 years, 5) NUL
Endemic bladder stones in Nepal. By M Ashworth and S M Hill. Abstract. Bladder stones account for a large proportion of surgical admissions in many developing countries. We report in detail the clinical features and risk factors of one such case, a 5 year old Nepali boy, and propose the theory that a low calcium intake, by causing hypocalciuria. Before the Industrial Revolution in Britain, bladder stones were more common than upper urinary tract calculi. Later, around the turn of the nineteenth century, upper tract stone disease began to become more prevalent. In developing countries bladder calculi are still endemic. 4.1 shows the radiographic images of such bladder stones. + These conditions acidify the urine and contribute to the formation of bladder stones 5. The children endemic vesical lithiasis is commonly associated with uric acid stones, isolated or associated with calcium oxalate. Nonetheless, calcium phosphate may be present 10. Treatment No short-term complications occurred in the five patients available for follow-up. Conclusions: Military surgeons providing humanitarian care in rural areas of Afghanistan, and humanitarian surgeons serving in endemic areas, can expect to encounter multiple cases of bladder stones in pediatric patients. Dysuria is a typical presenting symptom The majority of bladder stones in Western practice are secondary to underlying pathology—bladder outlet obstruction due to benign prostatic enlargement in men and urethral obstruction from pelvic prolapse or cystocele in women, chronic infection in the neuropathic or augmented bladder, or in the neobladder. While the pathology of endemic bladder stones remains as it always was, the advent of.
urinary calculi. The endemic bladder calculus is still a common disease in childhood.(1,2,4) Most pediatric bladder calculi in endemic areas are composed of ammonium acid urate, calcium oxalate, or mixtures thereof.(5) The occurrence of such calculi may be traced to the common practice in endemic areas of feedin Signs and Symptoms of Bladder Calculi Childhood Symptoms in Endemic Bladder Stones: Abdominal pain Interrupted urine flow Dysuria, alguria, frequency Need to manipulate the penis Symptoms due to Secondary Bladder Stones: Recurrent urinary tract infections [urology-textbook.com] Evaluates renal parenchyma,. Background: Bladder stones (BS) are rare in children. Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) seems to be nowadays the procedure of choice to treat pediatric patients with BS. This study aimed to analyze retrospectively our experience with percutaneous cystolithotomy, endourological treatment with Holmium laser and robotic cystolithotomy in children with BS.Methods: We retrospectively analyzed the. Before the Industrial Revolution in Britain, bladder stones were more common than upper urinary tract calculi. Later, around the turn of the nineteenth century, upper tract stone disease began to become more prevalent. In developing countries bladder calculi are still endemic. 4.1 shows the radiographic images of such bladder stones The English summary appended to the paper is as follows: - Whereas stone disease is exceptional in Central Africa, idiopathic paediatric vesical calculus disease, however, occurs in the region of Butare in Rwanda. The stones are mainly composed of calcium oxalate but by means of X-ray fluorescence the presence of considerable amounts of rubidium is demonstrated
Bladder stones account for a large proportion of surgical admissions in many developing countries. We report in detail the clinical features and risk factors of one such case, a 5 year old Nepali boy, and propose the theory that a low calcium intake, by causing hypocalciuria, predisposes to bladder stone formation To our knowledge, this is the largest single-center ments but a percutaneous approach has been advocated. series reported on percutaneous cystolithotripsy of endemic We present our experience with percutaneous cystolithot- bladder stones in children. omy in children with bladder stones without any ultrasonic or ﬂuoroscopic guidance
Endemic bladder stones have almost disappeared in the developed countries, probably as a result of a balanced diet . However, endemic bladder stones still constitute an important group in some regions, accounting for one quarter to one third of all pediatric stones in Tunisia and Turkey , and for more than half in India  In these endemic areas, boys are affected more than girls with a ratio of 12:1 with peak age being between 2 and 4 years.1 Reason for endemic bladder calculi is dependency on only one cereal and low calcium intake.3 She belonged to low socioeconomic status with a diet similar to the diet described for children with endemic bladder stone

The Egyptologist, Elliot Smith, examined 9000 mummies but found only two bladder stones. It is likely that stone disease was very common in Egypt but less so in the wealthy, whose bodies were mummified. The oldest stone found was in the remains of the pelvic bones of a teenage boy buried around 4800 BC disease, bladder stones are considered endemic in developing countries. In Western countries bladder calculi have disappeared due to improvement in nutrition, judicious use of antibiotics and antenatal diagnosis of bladder neck obstruction with its early treatment.1-3 In developed world, if an otherwise healthy perso
Bladder bilharziomas pose the problem of differential diagnosis with squamous cell carcinoma and bladder stones in areas of bilharzian endemic. Nevertheless, a clever exploration with cystoscopy would allow to evoke the diagnosis and to initiate the antibilharzian treatment sometimes supplemented by an endoscopic resection of the bladder lesion The Endemic Bladder Stones of Indonesia-Epidemiology and Clinical Features more by Ahmad Rizal Bladder stone is a relatively common disease of childhood in West Sumatra with an incidence of 8.3/100,000 population per year.We have studied 87 cases with a peak age of onset of 2-4 years and a male/female ratio of 12:1 effective method for treating endemic bladder stones in children.7-9 Stones even up to 5 cm in size have been removed successfully in children by this method.8 The extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) has limitations in the urinary tract calculi in children. Urethral calculus is a rare form of urolithiasi Most endemic bladder stones appear to originate as aggregates of calcium oxalate crystals in the kidney, which subsequently descend to the bladder, where they may acquire secondary deposits of calcium phosphate, magnesium ammonium phosphate or ammonium acid urate
Introduction. Squamous cell carcinoma of the bladder (SCCB) is uncommon in nonschistosoma endemic areas, accounting for 2.7% of bladder cancers in the developed world 1.A study from Sri Lanka showed that about 2.9% of bladder cancer were squamous cell carcinoma 2.Chronic bladder irritation with bladder calculi is a known predominant risk factor for SCCB Background: Pediatric urolithiasis is an endemic disease in certain parts of the world, namely Turkey and Far East. Metabolic and environmental factors, in addition to urogenital abnormalities, should be evaluated thoroughly each patient. The aims of management should be complete clearance of stones, treatment of urinary tract infections, preservation of renal function and prevention of stone.
We retrospectively analyzed 401 patients with bladder stones. Patients were divided into three different groups according to stone size (11-20 mm, 21-30 mm, 31-40 mm as groups 1, 2, and 3 respectively) Thirty-eight children presenting with bladder stones underwent percutaneous suprapubic cystolithotripsy (PCCL) between November 1989 and April 1996. The age ranged from 1.5 to 7 years. The stone size ranged from 0.8 to 2.4 cm. Seven of these were recurrent stones, and five of the patients were female
Gall bladder cancer is a rare malignancy but has very high mortality rate with less than 5 years of survivability [6,7]. Apart from known risk factors like age, sex, presence of gall stones, ethnic origin , and environment may be a key player in the etiology of gallbladder cancer 9. Lebowitz RL, Vargas B. Stones in the urinary bladder in children and young adults. Am J Roentgenol. 1987;148(3):491-5. 10. Salah MA, Holman E, Khan AM, Toth C. Percutaneous cystolithotomy for pediatric endemic bladder stone: experience with 155 cases from 2 developing countries. J Pediatr Surg 2005;40:1628-3. 11 Salah et al. [ 4 ] performed MPCCL in 155 children with endemic bladder lithiasis and all the patients were stone‐free after surgery. Recently Demirel et al. [ 22 ] reported that 30 paediatric patients with bladder stones underwent MPCCL and all became stone free Pediatric urolithiasis remains endemic in developing nations, affecting children at ages less than 1 year to adolescence. The prevalence rate is high at 5% to 15% compared with 1% to 5% in developed countries. Recent studies have shown that the percentage of bladder stones in pediatric urolithiasis is 30% The urine is held in the urinary bladder until it is emptied, when the urine passes through the urethra and out the urethral opening. A risk with kidney stones is a kidney infection, which can lead to sepsis. Sometimes incorrectly called blood poisoning, sepsis is the body's often deadly response to infection. Sepsis kills and disables.
stone composition and urinary pH was found, but all patients with uric acid stones had a 24 h urine pH of less than 5.8, suggesting a metabolic contribution to stone formation. Most of the patients with bladder stone are symptomatic. Occasionally bladder stones can be asymptomatic, like in our case bladder. For the second five year period (1967-71)there is an increase in the total incidence, which is 293/100,000 and the incidence of kidney and ureteric stones is 176/ 100,000 i.e. 60 percent and the incidence in bladder stones is 117/100,000 i.e. 40 percent. For the third five year period (1972-76)there is a considerable increase in 14 Urethral stones are a very rare form of urolithiasis, they most often originate from the upper urinary tract or bladder, and are rarely formed primarily in the urethra, it is formed on a urethral anatomical pathology in the majority of cases. The clinical symptomatology is very variable ranging from simple dysuria with penile pain to acute retention of urine
Bladder stones are endemic in developing regions such as Southeast Asia and India (4,5,14-16). However, upper urinary tract stones are common in developed countries (17,18). The localizations of urinary stones have been observed to b The constituents of bladder stones were identified by comparing the spectra of stones with that of the pure standards obtained accordingly. RESULTS: The mean age of thirty children (24 male and 6 female) was 4.84 + 2.82 years. Majority of cases 86.67%(n=26) had one, 3.33%(n=1) had two, 6.67%(n=2) had three and 10%(n=3) had more than three. Bladder inflammation secondary to radiation therapy or in endemic areas, infection with schistosomiasis can predispose to bladder stones formation. Metabolic abnormalities are uncommon cause of calcium and struvite bladder stones. The incidence of bladder stones in the western countries has steadily declined since the 19 th century. However. Of the various congenital anomalies, ureteral pelvic junction obstruction was the most common factor seen in 54-65% of patients. Approximately 15% of anatomic stones were located in the lower urinary tract and were most commonly seen in children with bladder reconstruction or neuropathic bladder The cause of these multiple bladder calculi is obviously the persistent urinary tract obstruction due to the enlarged prostate, resulting in incomplete evacuation of the urine. The urinary bladder stones varied in size from 15 to 27 mm., and I could count at least 4 of them. The patient had severe urgency and incontinence

Diet and fluids in Urological Healt Hematuria or haematuria is defined as the presence of blood or red blood cells in the urine. It can be classified according to the quantity, the anatomical origin of bleeding and the occurrence during bleeding. As per the quantity, hematuria can be detected by the naked eye (gross hematuria), or can only be detected under microscopy (microscopic hematuria These children are usually older, and clinically present in a similar fashion to the adult stone formers. In the Middle and Far East countries including Thailand and India, endemic stones are very common. These stones are generally composed of ammonium acid urate and oxalate. These stones typically occur in the bladder and are more common in males When a kidney stone blocks the tubes that drain urine from the kidneys to the bladder, called the ureters, urine collects in the kidneys, causing a kidney infection. Kidney stones may block the tube that drains the bladder, called the urethra, and cause cystitis or inflammation and irritation of the bladder. Infection ensues

Bladder stones in developing nations are more commonly endemic in children because of dehydration, infection and a low-protein diet. Calcium-based stones in Western countries are relatively rare in the upper tract . Bladder stones are usually rounded and may occur as singles or multiples Ingestion of large quantities of arsenic in well water has also been associated with numerous malignancies, including TCC of the bladder.[4,24,25] Similar endemic pockets of bladder cancer are found in other regions with high arsenic concentrations in drinking water.[24,25] In South Taiwan, arsenic blackfoot disease is endemic
