Partial Nephrectomy Procedural Window Widened With Use of ICE Technique

A new technique of robotic partial nephrectomy has the potential for better preservation of kidney function and better cancer control during partial nephrectomy by allowing surgeons more time to perform the procedure compared with traditional open surgery, according to the results of a recently published case series.

ConclusionsUnmarried men are at higher risk of not benefiting of cytoreductive nephrectomy, metastasectomy, or systemic therapy than their married counterparts. Unmarried women are at higher risk of not benefiting of cytoreductive nephrectomy or systemic therapy. These gender-related differences cumulate in higher CSM in unmarried men, but not in unmarried women.

AbstractPurposePartial nephrectomy has been persuaded as a widely accepted surgical procedure for T1a ( ≤ 4 cm) renal tumors. However, when treating T1b (4–7 cm) renal cell carcinoma (RCC), the “optimal” method of surgery is still debatable. The aim of the research is to evaluate the long-term oncological and renal functional outcomes of laparoscopic radical nephrectomy (LRN) versus laparo scopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) for patients with T1b RCC.Materials and methodsFrom March 1, 2003 to July 1, 2016, 331 patients were included in the current study. Patients presented with unilateral...

Authors: Grange R, Tradi F, Izaaryene J, Daidj N, Brunelle S, Walz J, Gravis G, Piana G Abstract Purpose: To evaluate the safety, functional and oncological outcomes associated with percutaneous cryoablation of stage T1b renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Materials and methods: Institutional database was reviewed to identify patients treated by percutaneous CT-guidance cryoablation between 2013 and 2018 for biopsy-proven RCC tumors measuring 4.1-7.0 cm. The main outcome parameters analyzed were primary and secondary technique efficacy, progression-free survival (PFS), cancer-specific survival (CSS), loss of estimat...

Publication date: Available online 26 October 2019Source: Urology Case ReportsAuthor(s): Aso Omer Rashid, Raz Haider Ahmed, Hemin Abdulwahab Hassan, Awat Husamadin BayzAbstractRenal cancer is a common neoplasm in the genitourinary tract. It characterized by unpredictable site and duration of metastasis. Distant metastases are common and may involve any region of the body. It spread in a way that is not clear. Late metastasis could occur even after complete resection of the tumor. An extended follow-up is advised to deal with the risk of delayed metastases.

Conclusion: Nurse-led follow-up, in our setting, was noted to be safe and effective and was associated with high levels of patient satisfaction. This study adds to the growing body of work on the efficacy of nurse-led care. PMID: 31645883 [PubMed]

ConclusionRCC rarely metastases to the colon but may occur years after curative resection. Therefore, RCC patients should be closely followed for the long term. In case of isolated metastasis, long-term survival can be achieved with R0 resection.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To determine the relationship between RING-box protein 1 (RBX-1) expression and renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with prognostic factors. METHODS: A total of 88 patients who underwent radical/partial nephrectomy between January 2009 and January 2016 have been included in our study. The age, gender, tumor location, tumor size, and tumor-node-metastasis stage of each patient was evaluated. From the best sections in hematoxylin-eosin stained pathology preparations, tumor histological subtype, Fuhrman nuclear grade, lymphovascular invasion, renal artery/vein invasion, capsule invasion, perirenal fat...
