Authors: Marques B, Couto J, Lemos MC, Rodrigues F Abstract Juxtaglomerular tumours are rare causes of secondary hypertension. They typically present with difficult-to-manage hypertension, hypokalemia, hyperreninemia and secondary hyperaldosteronism. The authors describe a clinical case of a 45 years old female patient, with personal history of difficult-to-manage hypertension and hypokalemia since age 35, medicated with four types of anti-hypertensive agents. An analytical study was performed, which revealed secondary hyperaldosteronism [aldosterone 44.3 ng/dL (4 - 28 ng/dL), renin> 1000 mIU/mL (4.4 - 46.2 mIU/...

SummarySurgical resection of RCC should be the aim for cure of localized or locally advanced RCC, either by partial or radical nephrectomy, depending on tumor size and patient ’s performance status. In cT1 stages partial nephrectomy is recommended. In metastatic stage, immediate CN can be performed in patients with good performance status, who do not need systemic therapy because of oligometatastic disease with feasibility of complete resection.

BodkinAbstract:Situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a rare condition with left-right mirror imaging of both abdominal and thoracic organs. While this configuration is rarely of medical importance, an understanding of this unique anatomy is essential in the setting of surgical intervention. Here we review a case of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) in the setting of SIT. The patient underwent a hand-assisted laparoscopic radical nephrectomy. Pathology revealed pT3aNxM...

CONCLUSIONS: Minimally-invasive surgery is technically feasible and has been shown to achieve acceptable perioperative outcomes in selected patients with renal cancer and IVC thrombosis. The evidence is premature to draw conclusions on intermediate-long term oncologic outcomes. Robotic surgery allowed to extend surgical indications to more challenging cases with more extensive tumor thrombosis. Nonetheless, global experience on minimally- invasive IVC thrombectomy is limited to high-volume surgeons at high-volume Centres. Future research is needed to prove its non-inferiority as compared to open surgery and to define its b...
