Biopsies of kidney lesions: when and how?

The demand for image-guided renal biopsy has increased due to the better detection of renal lesions; however, despite modern imaging techniques many small renal tumors cannot be classified as benign b...

The Impact of Renal Tissue Procurement at Bedside on Specimen Adequacy and Best Practices.

Renal biopsy is the gold standard for the diagnosis of both native and allograft renal diseases. We studied the impact of tissue procurement at bedside (TPB) omission on the adequacy of renal biopsies...

Active Surveillance of Small Renal Masses.

Most renal masses in the United States are incidentally detected via abdominal imaging. This has led to an increase in the incidence of small renal masses (≤ 4 cm). Active surveillance is a feasible...

Comparing laparoscopic and percutaneous renal biopsy for diagnosing native kidney disease: A matched pair analysis.

Percutaneous renal biopsy is a well-established diagnostic procedure in patients with underlying medical renal disease. Aim of this study is to compare the adequacy of the biopsy material, the diagnos...

Current Management of Small Renal Masses, Including Patient Selection, Renal Tumor Biopsy, Active Surveillance, and Thermal Ablation.

Renal cancer represents 2% to 3% of all cancers, and its incidence is rising. The increased use of ultrasonography and cross-sectional imaging has resulted in the clinical dilemma of incidentally dete...

Evaluation of Diagnostic Value of Molecular Markers in Renal Cancer

Renal cancer is frequent and its diagnosis mainly dependant on imaging. More than 50% of renal tumors are currently diagnosed without symptoms. However, 20% of small solid tumors are benig...

The Effect of Pre-treatment Biopsy for Non-neoplastic Renal Disease vs no Biopsy on Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate in Patients With Small Renal Mass: a Single-center, Single-blinded, Randomized, Parallel Group Clinical Trial

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Persistent high BLOOD PRESSURE due to KIDNEY DISEASES, such as those involving the renal parenchyma, the renal vasculature, or tumors that secrete RENIN.

The edges of tissue removed in a surgery for assessment of the effectiveness of a surgical procedure in achieving the local control of a neoplasm and the adequacy of tumor removal. When the margin is negative or not involved by tumor (e.g., CANCER) it suggests all of the tumor has been removed by the surgery.

An autosomal dominant disorder caused by mutations in a tumor suppressor gene. This syndrome is characterized by abnormal growth of small blood vessels leading to a host of neoplasms. They include HEMANGIOBLASTOMA in the RETINA; CEREBELLUM; and SPINAL CORD; PHEOCHROMOCYTOMA; pancreatic tumors; and renal cell carcinoma (see CARCINOMA, RENAL CELL). Common clinical signs include HYPERTENSION and neurological dysfunctions.

Conducting a biopsy procedure with the aid of a MEDICAL IMAGING modality.

A carbonic anhydrase and transmembrane protein that consists of an N-terminal PROTEOGLYCAN-like domain, a catalytic region, a single-pass transmembrane domain, and a short intracellular tail. It functions as a dimer and is expressed primarily by cells of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT; BILE DUCT EPITHELIUM; and GALL BLADDER. It is expressed at high levels in many solid tumors, especially CLEAR CELL RENAL CARCINOMA, in response to CELL HYPOXIA.
