Transluminal dilatation and stent placement in obstructed ureters in dogs through the use of percutaneous nephropyelostomy

Investigative Radiology
Z L BarbaricR S Davies


Through an artificially created ureteral obstruction in the dog, a ureteral stent was placed with the aid of a percutaneous nephrostomy tube. The stent was removed after two weeks. This resulted in permanent relief of the obstruction in the treated animals. In contrast to this, the control animals remained completely obstructed with resultant hydronephrosis and loss of kidney. It is proposed that this method can be used in humans where nephropyelostomy had been placed and where surgical correction of the obstructed ureter is not feasible.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
