Surgery for wounds or damage to the urinary tract

Wounds or damage to the urinary tract can occur during gynecological and obstetric operations, various injuries. If there is a suspicion of an injury to the urinary tract, appropriate diagnostic methods are required to establish the location, shape and size of the damage. In most cases, injuries of the urinary tract are detected immediately, during surgery or other manipulations. And only in certain situations, injuries or damage to the urinary tract are detected some time after a fait accompli. Tactics when detecting fresh wounds of the urinary tract is reduced to surgery to suture them or perform plastic surgery.

Bladder injuries are extraperitoneal and transperitoneal, with penetration into the cavity (complete) and without damage to the mucosa (incomplete). For non-penetrating wounds of the bladder, two rows of separate sutures are applied to the muscle membrane, without piercing the mucosa with subsequent peritonization.

Technique of execution. With penetrating wounds of the bladder, clamps are applied to the edges of the wound and it stretches, acquiring a slit-like shape. The places of the mouths of the ureters, their relation to the wound hole are determined. Only after that it is sutured with separate sutures, without piercing the mucous membrane of the bladder. The first sutures are lateral, 0.5-1 cm from the edge of the wound. These ligatures are holders. The second row of seams is overlapped so that each ligature is between the two seams of the first row. Closure ends with peritonization.

With extraperitoneal damage to the bladder, a suprapubic section of the abdominal wall and suturing of the bladder from the side of its cavity are made, and with intraperitoneal damage, laparotomy and suturing from the side of the abdominal cavity are performed. In the postoperative period, a permanent catheter is left for 5-7 days.

Damage to the urethra can be observed with blunt injuries of the genitals, sexual intercourse and gynecological operations. There may be a longitudinal tear or incision of the urethra, as well as its transverse rupture. Sewing with a thin needle and thin sutures is performed. When the urethra ruptures, a section of the bladder is made from the side of the vagina or pubis (with suprapubic cross section) and a catheter is inserted from the side of the bladder, with the help of which the central and peripheral torn ends of the urethra are found and stitched.

Damage to the ureter can be lateral (tangent), as a complete transverse section, chipped, as well as when captured in a ligature. With lateral damage to the ureter, several separate sutures are applied and peritonization is performed due to the nearby peritoneum. If the ureter enters (grabs) into the ligature without wound injuries, it is possible to limit it to release (untying the ligature) if no more than 6-10 hours have passed from the moment of surgery.
However, there is evidence of the restoration of patency of the ureter and the preservation of its integrity when released from the ligature for up to 2 days. With transverse transection of the ureter, surgical intervention is indicated for various options, the choice of which depends on the location of the transection. Stitching of the ends of the ureter can be end-to-end or end-to-side. With anastomosis, end-to-end stitching of the ends of the ureter is performed on the ureteric catheter, which remains for 20-25 days. In the invaginal method of anastomosis (end to side), the vesical end of the ureter is firstly ligated, then a longitudinal incision is made in it (0.5-1 cm), through which, using two ligatures, applied as mattress sutures, the oblique central end of the ureter is inserted. The ligatures are tied and cut, and the hole is sutured with separate sutures. The seam area is peritonized. An invaginal method of suturing the ureter is also possible with anastomosis end to end.

Sewing of the ureter into the bladder is performed if it is transected in the lower sections. The closer the ureter transection occurred to the bladder, the more successful this operation. Its effectiveness is still determined by the degree of mobility and displacement of the ureter down, and the bladder up. For this, the ureter is often mobilized, which is implanted in the bladder, and the latter rises up and is fixed with 3-4 sutures to the walls of the pelvis. There should be good conditions for peritonization of the ureter implantation region in the bladder. The last through the urethra is a metal catheter, which protrudes the wall of the bladder. On the catheter, in the area of ​​protrusion, the bladder wall is dissected. It is necessary that the dissection of the wall of the bladder be made closer to the implantable end of the ureter, as well as to its mouth in the bladder. The renal segment of the ureter is dissected longitudinally by 1 cm. Through these created blades of the ureter, they are carried out using the mattress method of ligature, which are then led from the side of the bladder cavity to its outer wall and fixed, tying it on one and the other side. The hole in the bladder is sutured to the walls of the ureter. The ureter implantation area in the bladder is peritonized by the peritoneum. A permanent catheter is left in the bladder for 6-8 days.

Known methods for transplanting the ureter into the colon, temporarily into the skin, etc.

If the ureteric stricture is not eliminated, hydronephrosis and subsequent kidney atrophy develop.

Surgery for wounds or damage to the urinary tract

  1. Surgery for damage to the female genital and related organs
    In obstetric and gynecological practice, damage is often made to the genitals of a woman, the rectum, other parts of the intestine and urinary system. As a rule, they are detected immediately during surgery or childbirth, which requires the immediate implementation of appropriate surgical interventions. Many injuries are the cause of the formation of fistulas of various localization.

Seifter) Obstruction of the outflow of urine, accompanied by stasis and increased pressure in the urinary tract, impairs the function of the kidneys and urinary tract and leads to acute and chronic renal failure.

  3. Urinary tract infection
    With cystitis and pyelonephritis, another disease of the urinary tract is closely pathogenetically interconnected in children. This is an infection of the lower urinary tract, included in the "International Classification of Diseases" (ICD-10, Geneva, 1995), which is mandatory for official statistics in our country as an independent nosological form. Urinary tract infection is a disease in which there is no
    Reimplantation of the ureter into the bladder is necessary in cases of congenital pathology, in case of damage to the ureter during surgery, during irradiation. If there is complete obstruction of the ureter, then resort to the application of percutaneous puncture nephrostomy, and the surgical plastic surgery should be postponed until optimal conditions for the operation are achieved. With every hour of complete obstruction of the kidney
    Fredric L. Coe, Barry M. Brenner (Fredric L. Soy, Barry M. Brenner) Specific kidney and urinary tract lesions are often accompanied by a multitude of interconnected or grouped clinical signs, symptoms, and laboratory findings called syndromes. Syndromes are more informative in terms of diagnosis because the development of each of them is determined
    The main attention in this chapter is given to the kidneys, the pathology of which is rather complicated and widespread in different geographical latitudes and ethnic groups. Normal kidneys are a paired and continuously functioning organ. Constantly forming urine, they remove metabolic waste products, regulate the water-salt metabolism between blood and other tissues, participate in the regulation of blood pressure and

From the anatomy point of view, acute urinary tract infections can be divided into two main categories: lower urinary tract infections (urethritis, cystitis and prostatitis) and upper urinary tract infections (acute pyelonephritis). Infection in these different parts of the urinary tract can occur.
    Mark B. Garnick, Barry M. Brenner (Mage W. Garnick, Barry M. Brenner) Kidney tumors. Kidney cancer. Kidney cancer (kidney adenocarcinoma - the outdated name for "hypernephroma") accounts for 85% of all cases of primary kidney tumors. Up to 18,000 people get kidney cancer each year in the United States and about 8,000 die from the disease. Most often, kidney cancer is observed in people aged 55-60 years.
    When passing through the kidneys, harmful substances are filtered out of the blood. About a third of the total cardiac output passes through one or the other kidney before it reaches the body’s tissues, and the blood is under high pressure when it flows through an accumulation of small renal vessels known as glomeruli. This pressure causes fluid flow and some small
