Complete situs inversus – is it a contraindication for organ donation ?

We report a patient of complete SI, who underwent donor nephrectomy. A 21-year-old male, without significant medical history, presented for voluntary living-unrelated renal donation and was found to have complete SI on evaluation and underwent right donor nephrectomy. The recipient is doing well on the follow-up. Meticulous surgical planning while selecting kidneys would enable renal donation even in cases of complete SI.

Because compensatory responses are not usually considered adverse effects, it is important to understand compensatory mechanisms for chemical risk assessment. Although the kidney is a major target organ for toxicity, there is controversy over whether hyperplasia or hypertrophy contributes to the compensatory mechanism, and there is limited information to apply for chemical risk assessment.

ABSTRACT Robotic surgery has been slow to be fully accepted in the world of pediatric urology largely because of its initial application directed towards adult use and because of the inherent high cost associated with it. However, as previously shown, it has now become the gold standard for adolescent pyeloplasty in The United States. As the adoption of robotic surgery in children has become more widespread, its use has been applied to a broader spectrum of procedures with similar success rates to standard laparoscopy. These procedures include nephrectomy, heminephrectomy, ureteral reimplantation, and ureteroureterostomy. ...

This study aims to evaluate the oncological and functional results of open partial nephrectomy (OPN) and laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) at the T1b clinical stage, which constitutes 25% of renal cell carcinomas (RCC) at diagnosis. Materials and Methods: The characteristics of 63 patients with stage T1b solitary tumor who underwent OPN (41) or LPN (22) were compared. The survival analysis was performed using the Kaplan-Meier method. Univariate and multivariate Cox regression analyses were performed to determine the factors affecting disease-free survival. Potential predictive factors, which might affect the postopera...

Conclusions: The treatment of complex renal hilar tumors in a minimally invasive fashion is highly challenging even in experienced hands. Retroperitoneal partial nephrectomy is feasible, safe and effective for the treatment of such lesions. Long-term oncologic outcomes of this approach are awaited.
