A RARE ISSUE IN KIDNEY STONE SURGERY

Urologist Dr. Cem DİLMEN said:
“Our patient has been suffering from continuous kidney stone disease since he has known himself and has had many open and closed surgeries.
When we diagnosed the stones in the kidney, we decided to operate with the FLEXIBLE URETERORENOSCOPY – URS method, which is not available in most centers.
In this method, the patient does not have a hole or incisions and the laser is used to break the stones.
When we started the operation, we saw that the stones has completely closed the entrance / mouth part of the operation area and it is impossible to continue with this method.
I made a sudden decision to use the PERCUTANEOUS NEPHROLİTHOTOMY method additionally to come over the situation, which is also one of the advanced techniques.
In this method, a very small hole is drilled at the level of the kidney to remove the kidney stones.
In a total of 1,5 hours of operation, all the stones that the patient carries for about 5 years have been removed.
In addition, at the end of surgery, the narrow part / passage was treated with laser extending.
This is a very rare occurrence in medical literature where 3 surgeries are performed at the same time.”

We had a very good operation with the permission of God and we completely cleaned the patient's cancerous kidney.

Çankırı Private Karatekin Hospital Urology Expert Op.Dr.Cem DILMEN said:
"Our patient was suffering from urinary complaints for several years.
The patient received treatment in different hospitals, but did not get the desired result and this led to an increase in the size of the prostate.
Drug treatment was not enough and surgery was necessary. The prostate weight was estimated at 150 g. Medically, the prostate more than 70 grams is considered large.
This size is not a common thing in prostate size.
We performed a closed operation for two hours.
The operation was successfully completed and the patient was discharged from the hospital at the next day.
Unfortunately 10 years ago prostate surgery was performed in open operations, because there were no other methods.
Today, there is a new device through which we can perform closed surgery for the bladder and prostate.
This modern combination are expensive and therefore requires investment.
And we were pleased to apply the latest techniques in the treatment methods in our hospital to delight our patients."

PEDİATRİC UROLOGY / CURVATURE OF THE PENİS İS NOT A PROBLEM.

During the past weeks, a correction of the penis curvature was performed on a child aged 10 years.
The patient, who had a birth deficit, survived the disease with an operation of about 1,5 hours.
About this subject Cankiri Private Karatekin Hospital Urology Specialist Op. Dr. Cem DILMEN said:
“The penile curvature is not very common in the society, but our basic problem is the delay of the application of the current patients to the doctor due to the moral values of the society.
For this reason, we are faced with the consequences of going to divorce due to the difficulty of sexual intercourse in many families in their future lives.
However, ultimately this is an illness, and more importantly, a disease in which the treatment is feasible and the results of the treatment are encouraging.
Our patient was 10 years old when we had surgery last week.
Often it is more rarely seen at these ages and child surgeries become more difficult as an operation technique.
With the permission of God, our patient's surgery was quite successful. He discharged at the next day.
These kinds of surgeons are not being done in our region except our hospital. Because of this our clinic is frequently preferred for these surgeries out of the province and abroad.
Finally, I recommend; If your patients have such a condition, they should definitely consult an urologist. Already every curvature does not require surgery.”

The operation has lasted 1 hour 20 minutes.
Without any incision or opening a hole we have held the surgery.
After one day’s hospitalization, we have discharged the patient with healing.
The mentioned laser device is currently not available in every clinics in Europe and even in the USA. In our country most advanced centers do not even have this technology and experience to operate with this.
Its feature is that regardless of stone size or type the stone can be broken.
Breaking hard stones in previous technologies was either too difficult or impossible, requiring open surgery.
However, with this new laser device it is now possible to perform all these operations indoors.
It is also possible to interfere with the stone in the kidney with this trick.
Having a serious financial investment and bringing this device to my hospital and my city, Cankiri is a very happy situation both for me and for the hospital administration.

We urgently cleaned the area.
This disease is a very serious disease that progresses rapidly and 30 to 40 % of the patients die within 5 - 7 days.
Early diagnosis and surgery saves people lives.
It is a very rare disease and it causes death if not operated early.
It is difficult to operate this disease, we are thanking very much for the technical conditions of our hospital and experinced staff.
