Abstract

Introduction: renal trauma is the most common urologic trauma and occurs in 3% of all admissions and as many as 10% of patients who sustained abdominal trauma.Patients and methods: 36 patients had renal injury, 28 patients injured during explosion due terrorist's attacks. 30 males and 6 females, age 11-50 years.All underwent emergency resuscitation then the patients either admitted to the ward for further evaluation or underwent emergency exploration if indicated.Results: The mechanism of injury was blunt trauma in 18 patients 50%, penetrating trauma in 14 patients 38.9% and combined in 6 patients 11.1%.The grades of injury were grades I & II in 16 patients 44.4%, grade III in 8 patients 22.1%, grade IV in 9 patients 25% and grade V in 3 patients 8.3%. Other organs involvement was found in 20 patients 55.5%, 4 patients 20% had blunt trauma, 15 patients 75% had penetrating trauma and one patient 5% had combined trauma.Death occurred in 9 patients 25%, 8 (44.4%) had penetrating trauma and one patient 5.5% had blunt trauma .The commonest causes of death were septicemia and renal failure.Conclusions: Type and severity of injury and other organs involvement are important factors in mortality of patients with renal injury

Abstract

Background:Evaluate the oxidative stress in patient with different types of urinary stone by measuring the total antioxidant capacity, study the oxidative stress in cystinuria patients, study the changes in superoxide dismutase activity and Cu, Zn level in sera of different types of urinary stone patient.Patient and method: 0ne hundred patients (67males and 33 females) in the age group ranging from 5-75 years old,and forty apparently healthy individual(20 male and 20 female) in the age group ranging from (6-70). admitted to Al-Hila Teaching Hospital, Urology Department from the 1st of January 2013 till 30th of June 2013. All patients underwent full history and physical examination including: age, gender, family history of urolithiasis, past history of recurrent stone and any current medical diseases. the antioxidant determination by add 100 μl Cu2+ working solution to all standard and sample wells and cover the plate and incubate at room temperature for 1.5 hours, Read the absorbance at 570 nm using the plate reader.the superoxide dismutase determination by take 50 ml of serum and 1 ml of tris base, 1 ml of pyrogallole . After the addition of pyrogallol ,immediately read the absorbance spectrophotometriclly at 420 nm against blank .Results :Serum concentration of Total antioxidant capacity(SOD) was decrease significantly in patients with urinary stone when compared with control group (p<0.001) in uric acid stone, (p<0.05) in calcium oxalate stone,(p<0.05) in calcium phosphate stone, The concentration ofsuperoxide dismutase (SOD) was decrease significantly in patient with urinary stone compere to control group, The result between male and female of the patients show significant decrease when compare with the male and female of the control.Conclusion:The study show lowerlevel Superoxide dismutase activity ,Increased levels of Total antioxidant indicate to absorption uric acid and the activation of antioxidant enzymes as an adaptation to the oxidative stress,The antioxidant strength is further decreased by lower activity of SOD.

Abstract

The current study had been conducted to assess the clinical significance of lipid peroxidation (malondialdehyde (MDA) concentration), (total antioxidant capacity (TAC) and superoxide dismutase (SOD), and biochemical test of [urea, creatinine (Cr), uric acid (U.A), calcium (Ca+2), potassium (K+), sodium (Na+), phosphorus (PO4-2)] in serum of urinary stone patients and also assess biochemical test of [urea, creatinine (Cr), uric acid (U.A), calcium (Ca+2), potassium (K+), sodium (Na+), phosphorus ((PO4-2) and pH] in 24 hour urine sample. Sixty patients with metabolic active urinary stones had been admitted to AL-Hilla Teaching Hospital, Urology Department during the period of November 2013 to April 2014. All patients underwent full history and physical examination including: age, gender, family history of urolithiasis, past history of recurrent stone and any current medical diseases. The urinary stones group composed of sixty patients (48 male and 12 female), the control group includes apparently healthy individuals (18 males and 12) females. A highest occurrence of urinary stones is in the age 31-40 years. The results of the present study showed non-significant difference in urea and Cr and the result showed a significantly increase in U.A. Also the study showed a significant increase in the level of Ca+2 and non-significant in the level of Na and K and a significant decrease in the level of PO4-2 .This study showed significant increase in MDA concentration and significant decrease in TAC and SOD , however showed significant increase in concentration of urea. Cr, U.A, pH, Na; and decrease in the level of Ca+2 and P and non-significant in level of K in 24 hour urine in the urinary stones group compared to the control group. In conclusion, urinary stone disease is affected by lipid peroxidation and antioxidant enzyme.
