    Abstract The nephrotoxicity of chloroacetaldehyde (CAA), one of the main products of hepatic ifosfamide metabolism, was compared in isolated human pediatric and adult renal tubules. Tubules metabolizing lactate were incubated in the presence of various concentrations of CAA (0.1-0.5 mM)....

    Immature animals have limited ability to concentrate the urine. This is in part the result of end-organ resistance to arginine vasopressin (AVP). To characterize this response, we measured water absorption in microperfused cortical collecting ducts (iCCD) and outer medullary CD (iOMCD) derived...

    Purpose We routinely perform percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) without the use of nephrostomy tubes. We examined the need for secondary surgery for the treatment of residual stones in patients who underwent both tubeless surgery and PCNL with tube placement.Patients and Methods We...
