Significant impact of three-dimensional volumetry of perinephric fat on the console time during robot-assisted partial nephrectomy
To assess the impact of volumetry of perinephric fat (PNF) on the perioperative outcomes of robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN).
Conclusion: XGP is a diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma. Partial Nephrectomy may be appropriate in management of XGP in select cases. PMID: 31976820 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We present a case of hypovolemic shock due to spontaneous rupture of bilateral giant angiomyolipomas in a 35-year-old female patient with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC).The hemodynamic instability of the patient leads to an immediate surgery and unilateral nephrectomy was done for the biggest angiomyolipomas. The review of the literature revealed only few cases of spontaneous rupture of renal angiomyolipomas of comparable size.
CONCLUSIONS: Idiopathic FSGS recurs post-transplant in one third of cases and is associated with a five-fold higher risk of graft loss. Response to treatment is associated with significantly better outcomes but is achieved in only half of the cases. PMID: 31974287 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Partial nephrectomy is still the gold standard treatment for localized renal cell carcinoma, it should be preferably performed by a robot-assisted approach. Focal therapy can serve as an alternative in highly selected cases. PMID: 31974660 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The Eqs. 1, 2 and 3 come under the section “Kidney cortex testing” as per the original manuscript, but they have been incorrectly moved and separated into different sections in the original publication of the article.
CONCLUSIONS: Chromophobe renal cell carcinomashowed a greater tendency to metastasize, so requires asurveillance protocol based on the risk of recurrence. PMID: 31950927 [PubMed - in process]
We report a very rare case of LAM with malignant lymphoma. A 51-year-old female had medical history of recurrent pneumothorax and nephrectomy for a left renal angiomyolipoma and was diagnosed with LAM by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery at the age of 30. She presented with left neck mass. Computed tomography and magnetic response imaging showed multiple enlarged cervical lymph nodes. 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) showed abnormal uptake in the mass. We suspected a malignant tumor or extrapulmonary lesion of LAM, and performed surgical biopsy. Pathologically, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma ...
Abstract Renal angiomyolipoma (AML) is the most common benign tumor of the kidney. It consists of blood vessels, smooth muscle and fat components in varying proportions. AML is divided into the sporadic type and tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC)-associated type. TSC-associated AML develops at a younger age and tends to exhibit a much faster growth rate over time than sporadic AML. AMLs are classified as classic AML, fat-poor AML and epithelioid AML. Epithelioid AML, though rare, shows aggressive behavior leading to distant metastasis and mortality. TSC-associated AML is more likely to have an epithelioid component ...
