Our aim was to evaluate the performance of fine needle aspiration (FNA) as a method for obtaining cellular material for the tissue diagnosis of small solid renal tumors.

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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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
The purpose of this study is to determine if biopsy for non-neoplastic renal disease for patients with a small renal mass results in greater postoperative renal function than the current s...
The proposed clinical trial is a phase I, open-label, multi-center, dose-escalation study of ALT-803 in patients with surgically incurable advanced solid tumors: melanoma, renal cell, non-...
This is a dose escalation study using the CyberKnife radiotherapy device for small surgical or medically untreatable renal tumors. Patients with renal tumors 5cms or less in diameter will ...
Study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of TAS-102 in patients with advanced solid tumors and varying degrees of renal impairment.
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.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
