Major complications of acquired renal cystic disease: W ünderlich syndrome and papilar carcinoma.

CONCLUSIONS: Renal hemorrhage is a serious complication that can lead to a fatal outcome. Patients undergoing dialysis should be monitored actively due to the risk of developing acquired renal cystic disease and associated complications. PMID: 28678013 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsAlthough metastasis of renal cell carcinoma is a rare differential diagnosis of gallbladder tumors, simple cholecystectomy is likely to offer a chance of long-term survival for patients with gallbladder metastases of renal cell carcinoma.

This study aimed to characterize the FDG uptake of primary renal cell carcinoma(RCC) lesions and to evaluate the predicting value of 18F-FDG PET/CT for nuclear grade and pathological tumor stage in RCC patients.Method: The patients underwent 18F-FDG PET/CT in our hospital from July 2010 to August 2016 were retrospectively identified. All patients hadn’t any treatment including nephrectomy and targeted therapy before PET/CT examination. The PET/CT results including SUVmax and diameter of renal lesions and pathological parameters including nuclear grade and tumor staging were collected. The glucose metabolic characteri...

CONCLUSION: The observed axitinib concentrations were at least an order of magnitude lower than expected based on the literature and measurements in other patients. The present case report indicates a potential risk of axitinib underdosing in patients on hemodiafiltration with the standard dose; therefore, drug dosage may need to be corrected based on the plasma levels of axitinib.

ConclusionsElevated visceral obesity by VFA is associated with increased surgical complexity, postoperative morbidity, postoperative stay and hospitalization expenses for RCCC patients and may be superior to BMI for renal cancer outcome assessment. VFA may be a useful index for the evaluation and calculation of RCCC aggressiveness.

ABSTRACT Purpose to determine the usefulness of serum TF as a potential marker for patients with clear cell RCC. Materials and Methods prospective study of 30 patients with clear cell RCC submitted to nephrectomy and 16 controls without clear cell RCC treated surgically for other conditions. TF is a endothelium marker that was correlated with worse prognosis in a variety of solid tumors including RCC. Serum TF was collected before surgery at the operating room and in the postoperative setting after at least four weeks. Serum samples were analyzed with a commercial ELISA kit for human TF (R&D Systems ®). Results Mean pr...

Publication date: March 2018 Source:Urology Case Reports, Volume 17 Author(s): Hiroto Matsuda, Satoshi Tamada, Minoru Kato, Akira Yamamoto, Taro Iguchi, Tatsuya Nakatani A 73-year-old woman with chief complaint of macroscopic hematuria was diagnosed as having left renal tumor with pancreatic invasion. Nephrectomy was performed. Pathological diagnosis was clear cell carcinoma, pT3a. Three months after the operation, liver metastasis appeared and sunitinib was started. Most of the liver metastases disappeared; however, a new lesion appeared, and sunitinib was switched to axitinib, which was effective on the residual lesion,...

ConclusionsMixed tumor histology is an uncommon entity that is not associated with adverse features in a solitary renal mass. These results are especially relevant in discussing the role of renal mass biopsy, and provide further evidence that renal sampling is a valuable tool in the appropriate clinical context.

CONCLUSION: AXL expression was associated with worse clinical outcome and may be an important prognostic biomarker in sunitinib-treated patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. PMID: 28986088 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
