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]
We report a 3 day old female who was referred with a congenital abdominal mass with a background history of polyhydramnios antenatally and preterm delivery at 35 weeks. Imaging studies showed a right renal mass involving the mid and lower pole of the kidney. The neonate underwent a right radical nephrectomy and histopathology confirmed the mass as a classic sub-type of CMN.
CONCLUSIONWe described the first case of renal pericytic tumor, addressing uncertain malignant potential, in a Korean male, which would be a distinct mesenchymal neoplasm differentiating from other groups of perivascular tumor families based on histological and immunohistochemical features.
Abstract Animal models of chronic kidney failure (CKF) have been developed for the pharmacodynamic evaluation of various phosphate binders that are used clinically to treat hyperphosphatemia in patients with chronic kidney disease. However, these models represent different disease states and severities, depending on the experimental conditions and are not clearly defined for pharmacological evaluation. In addition, experimental models have not yet been established for artificial dialysis. The purpose of this study was to confirm the utility of the various rat models of CKF and the mini-pig model of hemodialysis as...
The renal function of the remaining kidney in living donors recovers up to 60~70% of pre-donation estimated-glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) by compensatory hypertrophy. However, the degree of this hypertroph...
