Hand-assisted laparoscopic radical nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma in a patient with situs inversus totalis

Publication date: Available online 20 November 2019Source: Urology Case ReportsAuthor(s): Eric M. Chevli, Tyler J. Maiers, David J. Abramowitz, Shervin Badkhshan, John J. 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 pT3aNxMx Fuhrman Grade 2 clear cell RCC.

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.

lio G Abstract INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Kidney cancers represent 2% of cancers worldwide; the most common type is renal clear cell carcinoma (RCC). Surgical treatment remains the only effective therapy for localized renal cell carcinoma. Approximately 20% to 38% of patients undergoing radical nephrectomy (RN) for localized RCC will have subsequent disease progression, with 0.8% to 3.6% of local recurrences within the ipsilateral retroperitoneum (RFR). The main objective of this study is to evaluate prognostic features, oncological outcomes, and current management for renal fossa recurrence in patients with his...

AbstractPurposePartial nephrectomy has been persuaded as a widely accepted surgical procedure for T1a ( ≤ 4 cm) renal tumors. However, when treating T1b (4–7 cm) renal cell carcinoma (RCC), the “optimal” method of surgery is still debatable. The aim of the research is to evaluate the long-term oncological and renal functional outcomes of laparoscopic radical nephrectomy (LRN) versus laparo scopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) for patients with T1b RCC.Materials and methodsFrom March 1, 2003 to July 1, 2016, 331 patients were included in the current study. Patients presented with unilateral...

CONCLUSIONS: Our study demonstrated that the TachoSil binding suturing technique might reduce the development of PA after LPN. Prospective randomized study and comparison to the standard 2 or 3-layer renorrhaphy is needed to prove its actual value. PMID: 31629637 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract With the rising incidence of end-stage renal disease in the United States, patients needing renal transplants are waiting longer for increasingly scarce grafts. Formerly, the general practice was to avoid organs with tumors for transplant because of the risk of malignancy transmission to the recipient. However, with comprehensive donor selection and a small-sized primary tumor, the positive outcomes of transplant outweigh the risks of transmission after a partial nephrectomy. In our case, a 31-year-old woman, the daughter of the recipient, underwent a laparoscopic nephrectomy with an existing 8-mm tumor l...

Conclusions: In this sample of surgically resected tumors, CEUS was effective in characterizing renal lesions as solid neoplasms or complex cystic lesions suspicious for neoplasm-findings which merit further investigation. PMID: 31549563 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: Nephrectomy following ICI for RCC is safe and technically feasible with favorable surgical outcomes and pathologic response. Timing of the nephrectomy relative to checkpoint dosing did not seem to impact outcome. Biopsies of lesions responding radiographically to ICI may warrant attention prior to surgical excision.
