ConclusionPatients in class I and II comprise the majority of EP patients, and respond well to medical treatment with excellent outcome. Insertion of PCN and DJ are not required routinely, but with urinary obstruction requiring drainage, and a few cases who required nephrectomy –all with class III. Our data show improvement in the overall survival in patients for EP.

To demonstrate the clinical feasibility of an articulated laparoscopic needle driver to assist in the performance of laparoscopic PN (LPN). Previous studies have demonstrated under-utilization of minimally invasive techniques for patients undergoing partial nephrectomy (PN).

Publication date: Available online 10 July 2019Source: Urology Case ReportsAuthor(s): Ben Silverman, Joey Levy, Alexandra S. Vagasi, Rosemary Purrazzella, Shahriyour AndazAbstractPrimary renal lymphoma (PRL) is a rare disease process which represents less than 1% of all renal masses and is an uncommon type of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. PRL is of clinical significance due to the fact that unlike the more commonly seen renal cell carcinoma, PRL is treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by nephrectomy. This challenges the long held notion that preoperative biopsies are not necessary prior to nephrectomy for renal m...

AbstractPartial nephrectomy has become the preferred treatment option for small renal masses. In particular, minimally invasive partial nephrectomy (MIPN) using laparoscopic or robotic approaches has shown decreased blood loss, shorter hospital stay, and faster return to normal activity compared to open surgery. However, MIPN still carries risk of postoperative complications including hemorrhage and urine leakage. Closure of the renal remnant, often called renorrhaphy, is a critical step to avoid these complications. The purpose of the study was to provide quantitative data on suture properties during partial nephrectomy. ...

ConclusionClinicians prescribing ICIs should be aware that SOT recipients are at risk of transplant rejection as a result of T cell activation. Dd-cfDNA is a sensitive biomarker and should be further studied for early detection of transplant rejection. Immunological analysis of the kidney explant showed marked graft infiltration with alloreactive PD-1+ cytotoxic T cells that were saturated with nivolumab.

Conclusion: The external-internal ureteral catheterization technique in patients with ureteral injury is easy to apply and effective not only in reducing costs but also complications that may result from recurrent percutaneous interventions. PMID: 31286757 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Purpose of review The population of kidney transplant recipients with advanced chronic kidney disease is growing but their outcomes are poor and care is not standardized. There has been wide variety of research in recent years on different aspects of care in failing allografts, and these research findings may help the providers in optimizing care. The purpose of the review is to outline the challenges and opportunities in management of failing allograft, and provide tools for improvement. Recent findings This review summarizes the recent research in field of failing allograft including outcomes, immunosuppression, ris...

Purpose of review The safety of living donor nephrectomy is essential to the continued success, growth, and sustainability of the clinical practice of living donor kidney transplantation. This review summarizes recent advances in our understanding of the perioperative and long-term risks faced by living kidney donors. Recent findings Although adverse perioperative complications are extremely rare, donors particularly men, Black, or obese, frequently experience minor complications that result in delayed return to normal duties at home and work. Similarly, although long-term complications such as end-stage renal disease...

Authors: Li J, Zhang Y, Teng Z, Han Z Abstract INTRODUCTION: To review current studies and conduct a meta-analysis on the topic of partial nephrectomy (PN) and radical nephrectomy (RN) in larger renal tumors (cT2 and greater). EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: A systematic research of PubMed, Ovid, Scopus (up to January 2019), and reference lists was performed to identify eligible comparative studies. All studies comparing PN with RN for cT2 or greater renal tumors were included. The quality of the included trials was assessed and the data were extracted independently by two reviewers. Statistical analyses were performed u...

Abstract Transplanted kidneys usually experience several episodes of ischemia, including cold ischemia during allograft storage in preservation solution. However, previous studies focusing on cold renal ischemia was only carried out in vitro or ex vivo. In the present study, we developed and characterized an in vivo mouse model of renal ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI) induced exclusively by cold ischemia. C57BL/6 mice were performed right kidney nephrectomy and left kidney was kept cool with circulating cold saline in a kidney cup, while body temperature was maintained at 37°C. We clamped renal pedicle and f...
