AUA2021 Second Opinion Cases: Management of Ureteric Complications in Transplant Recipients

By: Neal E. Rowe, MD, FRCSC | Posted on: 03 Sep 2021

The plenary session “Second Opinion Cases: Post Renal Transplant Ureteric Complications” will take place on Monday, September 13 (10:00-10:20 a.m.) at the AUA Annual Meeting.

Urologists will always have a role to play in the care of kidney transplant recipients. A small group of urologists continue to participate as the primary surgeons at a number of centers across the United States. While the majority of these operations are performed by our colleagues from general surgery, urologists are often consulted to aid in the evaluation and treatment of complications that pertain to the urinary tract. On this basis, the principles of complication management continue to be of interest to the urology community at large.

The plenary session at AUA 2021 will have a special focus on the management of posttransplant ureteric complications. Leading experts in the field will present a variety of common case scenarios to attendees. Dr. Neal Rowe will be moderating a discussion between panel members Dr. John Barry, Dr. Jeff Veale and Dr. Obi Ekwenna.

The aim of this year’s session is to introduce strategies to evaluate both early and late ureteric compromise. Common case presentations including peri-ureteric fluid collections, hydronephrosis and pyelonephritis will be highlighted. We will review the utility of imaging as part of the diagnostic algorithm and suggest a role for percutaneous intervention both in the diagnosis and treatment of ureteric disease. Short-term treatments and long-term solutions will be discussed.

These “Second Opinion Cases” will prove to be of interest to residents, fellows and all general urologists who are consulted on ureteric complications in kidney transplant recipients.
