Combined partial cystectomy and cesarean delivery in a pregnant female with bladder pheochromocytoma

, : Combined partial cystectomy and cesarean delivery in a pregnant female with bladder pheochromocytoma. Canadian Journal of Urology 20(1): 6646-6648

We report the first known case of concurrent partial cystectomy and cesarean delivery in a pregnant female with bladder pheochromocytoma. A 28-year-old G4P2 female presented at 28 weeks gestation with labile blood pressures requiring three antihypertensive medications. Urinary catecholamines were elevated, and a subsequent MRI showed a 2.6 cm x 3.2 cm bladder wall mass. She underwent combined cesarian section and partial cystectomy at 37 weeks. Fluid resuscitation and vasopressors were required in the immediate postoperative period. While bladder pheochromocytoma with pregnancy is a rare occurrence, concurrent delivery and removal of the bladder tumor can be performed safely.

Optimal foraging theory concerns animal behavior in landscapes where food is concentrated in patches. The efficiency of foraging is an effect of both the animal behavior and the geometry of the landscape; furthermore, the landscape is itself affec...
