The role of renal biopsy to improve diagnosis and management of small renal masses: are there predictive factors for detective higher diagnostic rate? The first Italian study of 100 cases.

Incidence of small renal masses (SRMs) has increased over the last decade: in order to reduce overtreatment of benign lesions, renal tumor biopsy (RTB) has been advocated. The primary aim of this stud...

Apparent Diffusion Coefficient Distinguishes Malignancy in T1-Hyperintense Small Renal Masses.

Small renal masses (< 4 cm) can be difficult to accurately classify as benign or malignant, particularly when they appear T1 hyperintense on MRI. This intrinsic signal, potentially related to intrales...

Imaging of Small Renal Masses before and after Thermal Ablation.

Thermal ablation of small renal masses is increasingly accepted as an alternative to partial nephrectomy, particularly in patients with multiple comorbidities. Many professional societies support this...

Tumour seeding of the renal tumour biopsy tract - a histologically under-recognised feature?

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) incidence is rising, partly due to incidental detection during imaging performed for other diseases. Image-guided, percutaneous renal tumour biopsy (RTB) enables histologica...

Tumor location does not limit percutaneous treatment of small renal masses with microwave ablation.

Non-Invasive Diagnostics of Small Renal Masses

NiSAR is a Ph.D. study and consists of three substudies. Renal cancer is one of the most deadly urologic malignancies and accounts for 900 new cases and 300 deaths per year. An increase in...

A Trial Comparing - Robotic Assisted Versus Laparoscopic Partial Nephrectomy For Small Renal Masses

A prospective, randomized, controlled trial including patients who are diagnosed with a small renal mass (

Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy Versus Radiofrequency Ablation for Small Renal Masses

The execution of this study is pertinent to evaluating SBRT's short- and long-term efficacy and safety in the treatment of SRMs. This study will be the first to compare RFA and SBRT in the...

GRADE-SRM: Genomic Risk Assessment and Decisional Evaluation for Small Renal Masses

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the role of renal mass biopsy on decision-making for patients presenting with clinical T1 kidney tumors. This study also incorporates inte...

Normotonic Partial Nephrectomy as Novel Approach in Treating Small Renal Masses

This study evaluates novel surgical approach in treating small renal masses. Half of participants will undergo hypotonic zero-ischaemia partial nephrectomy (standard of care), while the ot...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Small masses of chromaffin cells found near the SYMPATHETIC GANGLIA along the ABDOMINAL AORTA, beginning cranial to the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) or renal arteries and extending to the level of the aortic bifurcation or just beyond. They are also called the organs of Zuckerkandl and sometimes called aortic bodies (not to be confused with AORTIC BODIES in the THORAX). The para-aortic bodies are the dominant source of CATECHOLAMINES in the FETUS and normally regress after BIRTH.

A number of small lung lesions characterized by small round masses of 2- to 3-mm in diameter. They are usually detected by chest CT scans (COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY). Such nodules can be associated with metastases of malignancies inside or outside the lung, benign granulomas, or other lesions.

The internal portion of the kidney, consisting of striated conical masses, the renal pyramids, whose bases are adjacent to the cortex and whose apices form prominent papillae projecting into the lumen of the minor calyces.

The amount of PLASMA that perfuses the KIDNEYS per unit time, approximately 10% greater than effective renal plasma flow (RENAL PLASMA FLOW, EFFECTIVE). It should be differentiated from the RENAL BLOOD FLOW; (RBF), which refers to the total volume of BLOOD flowing through the renal vasculature, while the renal plasma flow refers to the rate of plasma flow (RPF).

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