Bovine Hemoglobin-Based Oxygen Carrier Treatment in a Severely Anemic Jehovah’s Witness Patient After Cystoprostatectomy and Nephrectomy: A Case Report

We present the case of a 77-year-old male Jehovah’s Witness who underwent a cystoprostatectomy and radical nephrectomy with a postoperative Hb nadir of 4.5 g/dL. He received an Hb-based oxygen carrier, PEGylated carboxyhemoglobin bovine (Sanguinate), with gradual improvement in anemia symptoms and eventual discharge to a short-term rehabilitation facility.

AbstractPurposeTo compare the safety of on- vs off-clamp robotic partial nephrectomy (RAPN).Methods302 patients with RENAL masses  ≤ 10 were randomized to undergo on-clamp (150) vs off-clamp (152) RAPN (CLOCK trial— NCT02287987) at seven institutions by one experienced surgeon per institution. Intra-operative data, complications, and positive surgical margins were compared.ResultsDue to a relevant rate of shift from the assigned treatment, the per-protocol analysis only was considered and the data from 129 on-clamp vs 91 off-clamp RAPNs analyzed. Tumor size (off-clamp vs on-clamp, 2...

CONCLUSION: Conservative management is the treatment of choice in III-V grade renal trauma, and the prognostic factors found in this study make it possible to better select patients. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: 4. PMID: 31230856 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Albisinni S, Pretot D, Al Hajj Obeid W, Aoun F, Quackels T, Peltier A, Roumeguère T Abstract INTRODUCTION: The neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and the platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) are established markers of systemic inflammation. Moreover, anemia is a known adverse prognostic factor and reduced haemoglobin to platelet ratio (HPR) seems associate to poor outcomes in urothelial cancer. Aim of the current study was to explore the prognostic value of NLR, HPR and PLR in patients harboring localized RCC. Materials and Methods 184 patients undergoing partial and radical nephrectomy for renal ma...

Conclusion: Higher pretreatment RDW levels were demonstrated to be associated with poor clinical outcome in male LSCC patients and might be novel markers for patient stratification in LSCC management. Introduction Laryngeal cancer is one of the most common cancers of the head and neck, of which the estimated crude incidence and mortality rates in China were 1.86/100,000 and 1.01/100,000, respectively (1). This disease has a male predominance with a male-to-female ratio of 20 to 30:1 in China (2). The most commonly observed histological type of laryngeal cancer is laryngeal squamous cell cancer (LSCC), accounting for ...

Conclusions: Increasing SUA was associated with poorer outcomes. Decreased SUA levels were associated with statin intake and lower stage disease as well as lack of progression to CKD and anemia. Further investigation is requisite.

Abstract Cardiovascular mortality accounts for most deaths among hemodialysis patients and far exceeds the cardiovascular mortality rate of the general population. One important aspect of cardiovascular risk among dialysis patients is chronic inflammation. Iatrogenic sources of chronic inflammation in the form of failed renal allografts, old clotted arteriovenous grafts, and hemodialysis catheters play important, sometimes, unrecognized roles in this inflammatory state. There is ample observational evidence that these sources of inflammation are associated with hypoalbuminemia, erythropoetin-resistant anemia, and ...

We report the case of a 51-year-old Thai female presented with right abdominal mass with pain and anemia. The radiographic findings showed ruptured renal mass. She underwent radical nephrectomy and the pathological report was malignant neuroendocrine tumor. Palliative chemotherapy was administered. The patient passed away three months after the operation. Renal neuroendocrine tumors are rare. Moreover, ruptured renal tumors are very rare. They are usually considered to be angiomyolipoma or renal cell carcinoma. Poor differentiation and rupture at presentation are aggressive features of tumors. To the best of our knowledge,...

ABSTRACT Objectives: To evaluate the prognosis of non-metastatic T3a renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with partial nephrectomy (PN). Patients and Methods: We retrospectively evaluated 125 patients with non-metastatic T3a RCC. Patients undergoing PN and radical nephrectomy (RN) were strictly matched by clinic-pathologic characteristics. Log-rank test and Cox regression model were used for univariate and multivariate analysis. Results: 18 pair patients were matched and the median follow-up was 35.5 (10-86) months. PN patients had a higher postoperative eGFR than RN patients (P=0.034). Cancer-specific survival (CSS) and recurrence-...

We report a case of splenorenal fusion in a 5-year old girl with only right functional kidney who initially presented with a large renal mass which mimicked a primary renal neoplasm with no history of splenic trauma or splenectomy in past medical history. Also, the child didn't present with symptoms of hypersplenism. The child underwent right nephrectomy for a renal mass that was subsequently confirmed as right splenorenal fusion pathologically.

In this study, we assessed intestinal iron transporters in chronic kidney disease (CKD) model rats to investigate the association of intestinal iron transporters in the mechanism of cardio-renal anemia syndrome. Methods and Results: CKD was induced by 5/6 nephrectomy in Sprague-Dawley rats.
