  • 2018
  • World Kidney Day and International Women's Day in 2018 coincide, thus offering an opportunity to reflect on the importance of women's health and specifically their kidney health, on the community, and the next generations, as well as to strive to be more curious about the unique aspects of kidney disease in women so that we may apply those learnings more broadly.

  • urinary tract
  • This review highlights the most common congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) that are encountered in pediatric practices. (springer.com)
  • CAKUT are the most common cause of prenatally diagnosed developmental malformations and encompass a spectrum of disorders impacting lower urinary tract development as well as kidney development and function. (springer.com)
  • While the exact etiologies of CAKUT are not completely defined, new evidence demonstrates that genetic and molecular changes impact embryonic kidney and urinary tract development. (springer.com)
  • tumours
  • MYC activation results in highly penetrant pRCC tumours (MYC), while MYC activation, when combined with Vhl and Cdkn2a (Ink4a/Arf) deletion (VIM), produce kidney tumours that approximate human ccRCC. (readbyqxmd.com)

  • The histological classification of RCCs is of utmost importance, considering the significant prognostic and therapeutic implications of its histological subtypes. (urotoday.com)
  • clamps
  • Ischemia involves cutting off the blood supply to the kidney with clamps in order to control bleeding and to keep blood from obscuring the surgeon's view of the kidney. (healthcanal.com)
  • disruption
  • As it has done in other specialties, this fragmenting and aspirating scalpel has proven useful in the partial resection of solid organs through differential disruption of tissue with high water content and its ability to spare more solid tissues rich in collagen, such as blood vessels.
