Robot-assisted partial nephrectomy and bilateral pyelolithotomy in ectopic pelvic kidneys

To show how to perform a robot-assisted partial nephrectomy and bilateral pyelolithotomy in ectopic pelvic kidneys. This is a congenital abnormality of position and rotation1 frequently associated with urolithiasis.2 Renal cell carcinoma is a very rare event in pelvic kidneys.3,4 These two findings in the same patient could be a surgical challenge and whenever possible a “one stage” treatment is preferred.

Authors: Zhou S, Wei J, Wang Y, Liu X Abstract Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a leading cause of cancer-associated mortality worldwide. Despite clinical advances, the survival rate of patients with HCC remains low, as most patients are diagnosed with HCC when they are already at the advanced stage. Certain circular RNAs (circRNAs) are closely associated with the development of liver cancer. In the present study, a circRNA array was performed to screen differentially expressed circRNAs in HCC tissues. The further analysis focused on the newly identified circRNA_101237, the host gene of which, cyclin-dependent kin...

Authors: Li L, Zheng Y, Zheng Q, Jiang J Abstract The present study aimed to investigate the antiproliferative effect of embryonic stem cell-conditioned medium (ESC-CM) on the mouse liver cancer Hepa1-6 cells in vitro. Furthermore, in order to elucidate the underlying molecular mechanism, the microRNAs (miRNAs) in ESC-CM associated with the inhibition of Hepa1-6 proliferation were identified. Following the co-culture of ESC-CM and Hepa1-6 in Transwell chambers, the proliferation, cell cycle, apoptosis and associated protein expression were determined in Hepal-6 cells. Moreover, miRNA array analysis was employed to ...

ConclusionSILPE can be safely incorporated in the management of patients with PM. It is a safe and feasible staging tool, allowing for preventing unwarranted laparotomy for patients not deemed candidate for CRS/HIPEC. Even though it may underestimate PCI, SILPE accurately predicts the possibility of CCR.

ConclusionsIntracorporeal anastomosis using linear staplers reduced anastomotic bleeding and stenosis compared to extracorporeal anastomosis after LTG. Future research will be required to determine the ideal method for intracorporeal anastomosis in LTG.

ConclusionThe re-excision rate following NAC is almost twice that of patients who underwent primary operative management. Her2+  and triple-negative tumors have lower re-excision rates and may represent a selected cohort most suitable for BCS. Patients with invasive lobular carcinoma or ER+ disease have significantly higher rates of margin positivity, and these patients should be considered for a cavity shave during prim ary surgery to reduce the rates of re-excision.

CONCLUSIONS: MDCT plays a critical role in the preoperative assessment of potential renal donors by identifying contraindications to donor nephrectomy and providing accurate vascular mapping. This study is anticipated to be informative for those involved in the workup of potential living renal donors by quantifying the incidence and reasons for donor exclusion identified on CT.

We report a case of a 63-year-old Turkish man with RCC and DLBCL who showed severe hypercalcemia (calcium=15.01 mg/dl) accompanied by elevation of serum parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTH-rP) as the initial presentation. While hypercalcemia is one of the complications of various types of cancerous diseases, it has not been reported still as the first presentation of the coexistence of RCC and DLBCL. After radical nephrectomy, the patient underwent six courses of chemotherapy consisting of rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisolone and achieved a complete remission that lasts 2 years. ...

Non-communicable diseases, including cancer, start to become more common in Indonesia. According to the government statement, incidence of malignant diseases increased annually up to 8% in the last decade and these diseases become the seventh leading cause of death in Indonesia. On the basis of the latest Globocan report on cancer incidence in Indonesia, prostate cancer ranks sixth; followed by bladder (12th) and kidney (18th). More than half of patients with kidney cancer are diagnosed in the advanced stage. Besides renal cell carcinoma, there are significant number of people affected with squamous cell and transitional c...
