Detection of Renal Malignancy of Complicated Renal Cysts

2014-08-27 03:15:12 | BioPortfolio


The aim of this study was to show additional diagnostic criteria of computed tomography (CT) scan to diagnose and predict the detection and recurrence of cystic renal cell carcinoma in the patients with complicated renal cysts. Furthermore, we would demonstrate the relationship between complicated renal cysts diagnosed by Bosniak system and some parameters of pathological results. The analysis about detection time of renal malignancy would help determine the practical guidelines of follow-up plan for complicated renal cysts.


Even though there have been many trials and errors to enhance the diagnostic accuracy of CT scans for complicated cysts, the trial to obtain the enhanced accuracy using CT scan would be still valuable, when we consider its widespread use. A previous study demonstrated that the enhancement of HU with intravenous administration of contrast material on CT scan by 15 HU would be "almost always indicative of a pathologic process although not always a malignancy", another study showed the cut-off as 42 or 47 HU gap would be helpful in the prediction of renal malignancy.

Assessment of Oncological and Functional Outcomes After Robot Assisted Partial Nephrectomy Versus Laparoscopic Partial Nephrectomy

Currently, partial nephrectomy (PN) is considered as the gold standard treatment modality for small renal masses. In this setting, robot-assisted and conventional laparoscopic approaches a...

Use of Human Dehydrated Amnion/Chorion (DHACM) Allograft in Partial Nephrectomy

After partial nephrectomy, kidney function decreases by about 10% overall and by about 20% in the operated kidney. This is primarily due to the loss of healthy parenchymal volume during re...

A Pilot Study of Renal Hypothermia During Partial Nephrectomy

Renal hypothermia may preserve renal function in patients who require partial nephrectomy. In preparation for a definitive randomized controlled trial this pilot study will assess feasibil...

RObotic PArtial Nephrectomy National Study

The purpose of the study is to set up the larger prospective study on robotic partial nephrectomy, to describe the characteristics of patients operated for kidney cancer by this surgical p...

Zero-ischemia Robot-assisted Partial Nephrectomy Using Near-infrared Fluorescence

Patients with renal cancer are commonly treated by robot-assisted partial nephrectomy. Renal artery clamping is commonly required inducing kidney ischemia during surgery. It impacts parenc...

Comparison of Radical Nephrectomy and Partial Nephrectomy for T1 Renal Cell Carcinoma: A Meta-Analysis.

To contrast the clinical effects and complications for the treatment of T1 renal carcinoma in partial nephrectomy (PN) and radical nephrectomy (RN).

Partial nephrectomy seems to confer a survival benefit relative to radical nephrectomy in metastatic renal cell carcinoma.

Partial nephrectomy (PN) is technically feasible in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC). We tested the contemporary effect of PN on cancer-specific mortality (CSM), other-cause mortal...

Acute Kidney Injury after Partial Nephrectomy in Solitary Kidneys: Impact on Long-term Stability of Renal Function.

Acute kidney injury (AKI) often leads to chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the general population. The long-term functional impact of AKI observed after partial nephrectomy (PN) has not been adequately ...

Open versus robotic partial nephrectomy: a systematic review and meta-analysis of contemporary studies.

To compare perioperative outcomes of robotic-assisted partial nephrectomy (RaPN) with open partial nephrectomy (OPN).

Acute kidney injury and intermediate-term renal function after clampless partial nephrectomy.

To evaluate the incidence and predictors of acute kidney injury after clampless partial nephrectomy, and its impact on intermediate-term renal function.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Either a single or a single functioning kidney due to NEPHRECTOMY, birth defects or other kidney diseases.

Excision of a kidney. (Dorland, 28th ed)

The univalent radical OH. Hydroxyl radical is a potent oxidizing agent.

Abnormal growths of tissue that follow a previous neoplasm but are not metastases of the latter. The second neoplasm may have the same or different histological type and can occur in the same or different organs as the previous neoplasm but in all cases arises from an independent oncogenic event. The development of the second neoplasm may or may not be related to the treatment for the previous neoplasm since genetic risk or predisposing factors may actually be the cause.

A complication of kidney diseases characterized by cell death involving KIDNEY PAPILLA in the KIDNEY MEDULLA. Damages to this area may hinder the kidney to concentrate urine resulting in POLYURIA. Sloughed off necrotic tissue may block KIDNEY PELVIS or URETER. Necrosis of multiple renal papillae can lead to KIDNEY FAILURE.
