Conclusions: The present study seeks to provide new insight in the pathophysiological mechanisms linking reduced kidney function to cardiovascular disease. In addition, we aim to enlighten predictors of adverse cardiovascular outcome in living kidney donors. The study is registered at Clinical-Trials.gov (identifier: NCT03729557).

To compare the perioperative and oncologic outcomes associated with open vs. robot assisted radical nephrectomy with tumor thrombus (RNTT). Renal cell carcinoma with venous tumor thrombus has traditionally been managed through an open surgical approach.. The robot assisted approach may offer improved perioperative outcomes compared to open, but there are few studies comparing these two.
CONCLUSION: The use of NSAIDs was not related to acute kidney injury, postsurgical complications, or prolonged hospital stay in patients with renal cancer undergoing nephrectomy. PMID: 31715614 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Publication date: Available online 10 November 2019Source: Urology Case ReportsAuthor(s): Jonathan Kopel, Pranav Sharma, Irfan WarriachAbstractSolitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) are rare mesenchymal neoplasms found areas lining the pleura. First reported in 1931, there have been a total of 55 cases of SFTs of the kidney worldwide. In most cases, SFTs presents with hematuria, flank pain, and enlarging abdominal mass. In this case, we report a case of a patient who underwent a radical nephrectomy to remove an SFTs of the kidney with compression of the vena cava. This case further expands upon the importance of diagnosing and ass...
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.

To assess which patients respond best following cytoreductive nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with sarcomatoid dedifferentiation (sRCC) and whether outcomes are improving over time.
CONCLUSIONS: We could prove the safety and effectiveness of descending TLN technique. The main advantages of descending TLN over traditional ascending nephrectomy technique are shorter operation time and hospital stay. PMID: 31697253 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: We consider that mesorenal tumors, with significant penetration within the renal parenchyma and greater than 4 cm, PN presents both oncological and satisfactory results. PMID: 31697252 [PubMed - in process]
