Ultrasound-Guided Continuous Transmuscular Quadratus Lumborum Block for Postoperative Analgesia in Patients Undergoing Radical Nephrectomy: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Conclusion Continuous US-guided TMQLB appears to be a safe and effective RA technique for managing postoperative pain after nephrectomy for up to 48 hours. Trial registration: German Clinical Trials Register-DRKS-ID: DRKS00014611.PMID:34868765 | PMC:PMC8627643 | DOI:10.7759/cureus.19120
CONCLUSION: The presence of synchronous tumors can be evidenced in imaging tests, such as CT scan, but appropriate diagnostic tests for each neoplasm, such as colonoscopy, should not be ruled out. The treatment of choice must be surgery, when possible, with the options of conventional access, videolaparoscopic and robotic surgery.PMID:35079355 | PMC:PMC8767268 | DOI:10.1016/j.amsu.2021.103187
We report a case of massive intratumoral bleed in RCC in a young male and its management by renal artery angioembolisation followed by radical nephrectomy.PMID:34939847 | DOI:10.1308/rcsann.2021.0219
AbstractA 62-year-old man underwent left radical nephrectomy for left renal cell carcinoma at our hospital in 1999. At the age of 79 years, he was diagnosed with intra-abdominal disseminations, lung metastases, pancreas metastases, and bilateral femoral muscle metastases during a routine follow-up computed tomography scan. The patient began treatment with pazopanib. Four years later, at the age of 83 years, he developed fever, abdominal pain, and general malaise. Blood samples showed liver dysfunction, hypoalbuminemia, and anemia. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography showed thickening of the small bowel wall wi...
We report a case of RCC in ectopic pelvic kidney managed with radical nephrectomy that was deemed unresectable on CT imaging.PMID:34813405 | DOI:10.1308/rcsann.2021.0139
CONCLUSION: RAPN is a safe and feasible surgical modality comparable to OPN for managing renal tumors larger than 4 cm in terms of surgical, functional, and oncological outcomes.PMID:34032028 | DOI:10.3346/jkms.2021.36.e135
