• Most common Congenital anomaly seen in

upper renal tract
– Duplication of Renal Pelvis
• Most common renal vascular anomaly
– Supernumerary Renal Arteries
• Left Renal vein. The left renal vein courses
between the aorta and superior mesenteric
artery to join the inferior vena cava. The left
renal vein passes in front of Aorta.
The left gonadal vein will drain into to left
renal vein. The right gonadal vein drains
dnirectly into the inferior venal cava
Renal Cell Carcinoma/Hypernephroma/Grawitz Tumor
• Classic triad of Pain, Hematuria and Flank mass

complication of renal trauma and its most
frequent symptom is pain in the renal region
Horse Shoe Kidney

form a horseshoe-shape during development in the
womb. The fused part is the isthmus of the horseshoe

anterior abdominal wall associated with incomplete
develpment of anterior wall of bladder owing to
delayed rupture of cloacal membrane

loin is found. Some hour later, following the passage
of urine pain is relieved and swelling dissapears
Hydronephrosis Association
• Prune Belly Syndrome (Eagle Barret Syndrome)
• Dietls Crisis

Prune Belly Syndrome
• Fascia of Denonvilliers
– The posterior surface of the prostate gland is
separated from the rectum by fascia of
Different zones of prostate gland
• Peripheral zone (PZ) which lies mainly posteriorly
and most carcinomas arise from this zone. This is
the reason; we have to palpate the prostate from
the rectum to find the hard prostate to rule out
• Central zone
• Periurethral transitional zone from which most
benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) arises
• NOTE: BPH results in obstruction of urinary tract.
The specific condition is associated with
enlargement of the Median lobe
Drugs used for BPH
• Alpha 1 adrenergic blocking agent: Prazosin,
Terazosin, Tamsulosin
• 5-alpha reductase inhibitor inhibits conversion
of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone, e.g.
• Antiandrogen may help men with significantly
enlarged prostates. e.g. Flutamide
• The verumontanum is the single most important
anatomical landmark in TURP.
• The verumontanum lies immediately proximal to the
external sphincter muscle and serves as the distal landmark
for prostate resection to prevent injury to the external
• Hyponatremia is avoided by using 1.5% isotonic glycerin for
irrigation. (Distilled Water is never used for irrigation)
• Absorption of water into circulation at the time of TURP
(water intoxication) can give rise to CHF, hyponatremia, and
hemolysis which may manifest as confusion and other
cerebral events mimicking a stroke.
• Post TURP first complication Vomiting
• Most common complication: Retrograde Ejaculation
Indications of prostatectomy in BPH
• Acute retention- BPH is the most common cause
of urinary retention in elderly males.
• Chronic retention and renal impairment:
Residual urine of 200 ml or more, a raised blood
urea, hydroureter or hydronephrosis demons-
trated on urography and uremic manifestations.
• Complications of bladder outflow obstruction:
stone, infection and diverticulum formation.
• Hemorrhage
• Most common site of obstruction after TURP is
– Bladder Neck

• Laser used in treatment of BPH

- Nd:YAG

• During TURP, Surgeon takes care to dissect above

the vermontonum to prevent injury to
– External Urethral Sphincter
Marion Disease
• Obstruction to the neck of bladder
• Treatment consists of opening the bladder and
performing Y-V plasty
• Abnormal enlargement of veins in the scrotum draining
the testicles
• 98% occur in left side, apparently because the left
testicular vein runs vertically upto the renal vein, while
the right testicular vein drains directly into inferior
• Variocele may be the indicator of left renal tumor
• Heavy, Dragging aching sensation in scrotal
• May be like Bag of Worms
• Embolisation of gonadol vein is the first line
Prostratic cancer
• Low Back Pain and Retention of Urine
• Raised Value of ACID PHOSPHATASE
• Most Specific is Prostrate specfic antigen.
• Prostratic Carcinoma most commonly arises from Peripheral
• Most common site of metastasis is Pelvic Bones
• Bone Metastasis in the prostrate is Osteoblastic
• Metastasis to vertebrae is through Bateson vertebral venous
• Gleason staging is done for prostratic carcinoma
• NOTE: BPH arises from Periurethral transitional zone, BPH is
the most common cause of urinary retention in elderly male
Most Specific Screening Protocol for
Prostate Ca (Purely Osteoblastic)
• The raised value of aCid phosphatase is highly
suggestive of prostate Cancer
Carcinoma of prostate metastasize

• Valveless communication exists between the

prostatic and vertebral venous plexuses
through which prostatic carcinoma can
• Spread by blood stream occurs particularly to
bones. The bones involved most frequently by
metastasis of prostatic carcinoma are the
pelvic bones.
Treatment of Prostate cancer

• Treatment is controversial, as many cases of

prostate cancer are slow to progress. Treatment
choice is based on the aggressiveness of the
tumor and the patient’s mortality risk.
• Watchful waiting may be the best approach for
elderly patients with low grade tumors.
• Radical prostatectomy and radiation therapy
(e.g. brachytherapy or external beam) are
associated with increased risk of incontinence
and/or impotence.
Feature of Typical Semen Specimen
• Total Volumne: 3-5 ml
• Sperm Count: 60-120 million
• Motility: 80%
• Morphology: 80% or more normal
• Pus cell Should be absent
• OLIGOSPERMIA: < 20million/ml
• AZOOSPERMIA: Absence of sperm

• Teratozoospermia
– Presence of high number of malformed spermatozoa in
the semen
Common tumor of Testis
• Seminoma (MC overall, Yolk sac tumor is MC in children,
Lymphoma is elderly)
• Teratoma
• Combined Seminoma and teratoma
• Lymphoma
• Interstitial tumor

• Note: Commonest site for testicular tumor metastasis is

• Diagnosis of testicular cancer is made by performing a
radical orchidectomy by a inguinal route, Irreversible drastic
step is justified because testicular tumor are never beningn

• Seminoma is most common tumor of testes both

on descended and undescended.
• Cut surface homogenous
• Secrete Beta HCG
• Cyptoorchidism is a risk factor for seminoma
• Corresponds to Dysgerminoma of Ovary in
females (Dysgerminoma usually secrete PLAP and
LDH,,,, Beta HCG in few cases)
• Extremely Radiosensitive, Excellent Prognosis
• Seminomatous – radiosensitive late
metastasis, excellent prognosis
• Non seminomatous – not radiosensitive, early
metastasis, more aggressive

• Note: Hemorrhage and necrosis in tumor

suggests aggressive tumor, not Seminoma
• Surgery for undescended testis is recommened at
which age
– 6 months
• Surgery for undescended testis should be
performed before
– 12 month
• Orchidopexy should not be performed before 6
months of age, as testes may descend
spontaneously during the first few months of life.
• Non seminomatous GCT (Yolk sac
tumor/Endodermal Sinus tumor, Embryonal
Carcinoma, Teratoma)
• Hepatocellular Ca/Hepatoblastoma: Maxm
• GI Carcinoma e.g: Ca. Colon
• Ca lung
• Non Neoplastic Condition (Cirrhosis, Hepatitis,
Testicular Torsion vs Epididymitis
• Pain stay same/worsen with testicular
elevation in Testicular torsion where as in
Epididymitis Pain decreases with elevation
• Immediate Surgical Intervention is indicated in
testicular torsion as it is an medical
