A 62-year-old woman underwent laparoscopic radial nephrectomy for the left renal cell carcinoma in September 2008. In July2016, the patient developed asymptomatic gross hematuria. Computed tomography (CT) revealed the enlargement of the left ureteral stump and an 11mm nodule in the superior lobe of the right lung. Since [F-18] fluoro-D-glucose-positron emission tomography-CT FDG PET-CT demonstrated a lung tumor, we decided to perform right upper lobectomybyvideo-assisted thoracoscopic surgeryin September. The patient was diagnosed with metastatic renal cell carcinoma...

BACKGROUND In this study, we analyzed the learning curve of hand-assisted laparoscopic donor nephrectomy (HALDN). MATERIAL AND METHODS The first 198 consecutive donors (110 cases by expert surgeon and 88 cases by newbie surgeon) operated on using HALDN were included in this study. The primary outcome measures were warm ischemic time (WIT), total operation time and estimated blood loss (EBL). The secondary outcome measures included length of hospital stay (LOS), graft outcome, and surgery-related complications...

The use of robotic techniques in laparoscopic donor nephrectomy currently tends to involve a longer ischemia time without clear advantages, and the cost of robotic surgery is significantly higher. If only one robot is available, then unnecessary prolongation of cold ischemia time also occurs, as the donor must first be undocked to dock the recipient. The combination of laparoscopic donor nephrectomy with parallel initiation of robot-assisted situs preparation and exposure of the renal vessels appears to be the best current approach to safe and cost-effective donor nephrectomy and subsequent robot-assisted kidney transplantation without wasting any time...

BACKGROUND: In a cadaveric model with healthy kidneys, it has recently been highlighted that a single renal segment could be supplied by one or more arterial branches originating from an artery supplying another segment. OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate occurrences of anatomical variations of renal vascularization and to analyze vascularization of renal tumors. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: This prospective monocentric study included all patients treated for a renal tumor between May 2015 and June 2017 by laparoscopic partial nephrectomy after superselective tumor embolization in a hybrid operating room...

BACKGROUND: Partial nephrectomy (PN) is the standard treatment for localized renal tumors. Laparoscopic PN (LPN) after selective embolization of tumor (LPNE) in a hybrid operating room has been developed to make LPN easier and safer. The aim of this study was to compare outcomes of LPNE and robot-assisted PN (RAPN). PATIENTS AND METHODS: All patients who underwent an LPNE at Angers University Hospital between May 2015 and April 2017, and a RAPN at Diaconesses Croix Saint Simon hospital between October 2014 and April 2017 were prospectively included...

Background: Acquired von Willebrand disease (AvWD) is a rare and often underdiagnosed disease that typically is associated with lymphoproliferative, cardiovascular disease, and myeloproliferative disease. It is challenging to diagnose as it requires a hemostatic challenge to present itself. Case Presentation: This is a 46-year-old male with a history of multiple sclerosis complicated by neurogenic bladder who presented with intermittent gross painless hematuria. He underwent a gross hematuria workup. Cystoscopy demonstrated active bleeding from the right ureteral orifice...

Donor nephrectomy is an extremely challenging procedure. The stakes are high, as two lives-the donor and the recipient-depend on it. Robotic donor nephrectomy has an edge over a laparoscopic approach.

PURPOSE: Patients with localised renal cell carcinoma (RCC) can expect excellent oncologic outcomes. As such, there has been a shift towards maximising health-related quality of life (HRQoL). A greater understanding of HRQoL outcomes associated with different treatment options for RCC can facilitate patient-centred care, shared decision-making and enable cost utility analyses to guide health policies. The aim of this literature review was to evaluate the evidence regarding HRQoL following different management strategies for localised RCC...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic total nephrectomy (LN) in malignant pediatric tumors remains controversial. For selected patients undergoing pre-operative chemotherapy in referral centers, LN has so far shown comparable results to the standard open technique. PURPOSE: To describe the inclusion criteria and preliminary results of laparoscopic nephrectomies (LN) for the treatment of unilateral Wilms tumors (WT). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Between November 2010 and January 2016, a retrospective study of patients with WT and undergoing pre-operative chemotherapy was performed...

Laparoscopic donor nephrectomy has become the standard procedure to procure kidney graft. Transplantation using multiple arteries allograft is technically more challenging and still controversial with respect to renal transplantation outcomes. The objective of this study was to examine the transplantation outcome in both donor and recipient outcome of multiple arteries allograft kidney compared with single renal artery kidney. Eligible studies were identified from electronic databases: PubMed, Cochrane CENTRAL, Science Direct, and CINAHL as of October 2016...

BACKGROUND There are few studies that address how to quickly locate the renal vein after processing the renal artery during retroperitoneal laparoscopic radical nephrectomy (RLRN) for renal cell carcinoma (RCC). This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility of an easy and effective method to locate the renal vein in RLRN. MATERIAL AND METHODS Between September 2016 and October 2017, a total of 44 consecutive cases of RLRN were performed. All the surgeries used the proposed study method to locate the renal vein, in which surgeons located the renal artery following the medial arcuate ligament on the posterior abdominal wall, then the surgeon directly searched for the renal vein caudally relative to renal artery when performing left nephrectomy, but cranially when performing right nephrectomy...

INTRODUCTION: Nephron sparing surgery has emerged as the treatment of choice for small renal masses. However, its role in larger tumors remains controversial. In the current study we compare the outcomes of Laparoscopic Partial Nephrectomy (LPN) vs. Radical Nephrectomy (LRN) for T2 renal tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 13 patients who had LPN and 16 patients who had LRN for T2 renal tumors were retrospectively analyzed for preoperative factors (age, gender, co-morbidities, hemoglobin and creatinine levels and estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate [eGFR]), operative and perioperative characteristics (tumor characteristics, Operative Time [OT], warm ischemia time [WIT], Estimated Blood Loss [EBL], Length of Stay [LOS] and post-operative complications), histopathological results and follow-up data (eGFR and recurrences)...

OBJECTIVE: To describe a novel technique of laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) with direct lateral access (DLA) to renal artery and to report our early outcomes with this technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of 135 cases of transperitoneal LPN done by a single surgeon at our tertiary care Institution from August 2014 to December 2016 was performed. Standard LPN (n=73) or DLA-LPN (n=62) was performed. Relevant clinical data were recorded including baseline patient and tumor characteristics, and surgical outcomes (operative time, artery mobilization time, warm ischemia time, estimated blood loss, complications, and so on)...

Distinguishing infiltrative renal masses (IRMs) from intrarenal urothelial cancers (IUCs) is critically important, but may be challenging for any radiologist or urologist. The present study aimed to summarize the clinical, imaging and pathological characteristics of IRM, which were postoperatively confirmed as IUC. The analysis was performed using the records of 22 patients who were preoperatively diagnosed with IRM but the results of percutaneous biopsies or postoperative pathological analyses led to diagnoses of urothelial cancers (UCs) from January 2011 to December 2017...
