  • Although most small renal masses are known to have low malignant potential, certain patients under surveillance have developed progression or metastasis [ 5 , 6 ]. (kjuo.or.kr)
  • Furthermore, most studies of small renal mass did not use a total cancer cohort, meaning the cohort consisted of malignant and benign masses, and the ratio of benign masses was approximately 20%-30% [ 5 , 6 ]. (kjuo.or.kr)
  • Therefore, if the surveillance of small RCC increases and is validated in selected patients [ 9 ], determining the risk of small renal masses will be more important to enable physicians to decrease overtreatment and avoid missing aggressive tumours. (kjuo.or.kr)

  • Establishing percutaneous renal access is the most crucial step in the procedure and requires a thorough understanding of renal, retroperitoneal and thoracic anatomy to minimize the risk of complications. (docplayer.net)
  • surgical
  • This is a surgical procedure similar to laparoscopic nephrectomy except the surgeon removes the kidney together with the ureter, the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder. (marklouiejohnsun.com.au)
  • However, excessive smoke, charring of the surgical margin, and inability to seal large blood vessels are encountered with this technique. (biomedcentral.com)
  • 9 ] Therefore, different surgical techniques have emerged to reduce or eliminate the WIT, including targeted renal blood flow interruption, selective renal artery clamping, selective renal parenchymal clamping, laser supported MIPN, radio frequency assisted MIPN, hydro-jet assisted MIPN, and sequential preplaced suture renorrhaphy. (biomedcentral.com)
