  • ischemia
  • Lack of perfusion causes ischemia, so there is little time to complete the resection and get the tumor samples evaluated by the pathology lab. (onclive.com)
  • You don't have to worry about ischemia time and loss of kidney tissue during the procedure," Goldrath said. (onclive.com)
  • Ischemia-reperfusion induced acute kidney injury (IR-AKI) is widely used as a model of AKI in mice, but results are often quite variable with high, often unreported mortality rates that may confound analyses. (jove.com)
  • Bilateral renal pedicle clamping is commonly used to induce IR-AKI, but differences between effective clamp pressures and/or renal responses to ischemia between kidneys often lead to more variable results. (jove.com)
  • To improve post-injury survival and obtain more consistent and predictable results, we have developed two models of unilateral ischemia-reperfusion injury followed by contralateral nephrectomy. (jove.com)
  • In hospitalized patients, over 50% of cases of acute kidney injury (AKI) are caused by renal ischemia 1-3 . (jove.com)
  • Moreover, delayed graft function due to tubule cell injury during kidney transplantation is frequently related to ischemia-associated AKI 6 . (jove.com)
  • This model requires a nephrectomy of the right kidney since ischemia can be only performed in one kidney due to the experimental setting. (jove.com)
  • surgery
  • Any form of anatomical obstruction of the kidney associated with a kidney stone is also best treated primarily with percutaneous surgery. (ucdenver.edu)
  • In such cases, such as uretero-pelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction and calyceal diverticuli, percutaneous surgery can not only remove the stone completely from the kidney but also simultaneously treat the underlying anatomical abnormality that has resulted in the formation of the stone itself. (ucdenver.edu)
  • The major advantage of HALS is that the entire kidney cancer is removed as in open surgery so that a precise pathological examination of the kidney can be performed for prognostic purposes. (ucdenver.edu)
  • The morbidity of HALS is similar to that of a completely laparoscopic procedure, and much superior to that of traditional open renal surgery. (ucdenver.edu)
  • Since 2005, physician partners at Comprehensive Urologic Care (CUC) have been using a form of clampless surgery, which they developed at their practice, for partial nephrectomies. (onclive.com)
  • VHL-associated renal tumors of 3 cm in size are commonly managed with surgery . (uni-bonn.de)
  • Their only option for treatment could involve going through kidney surgery. (jaimelandmanmd.com)
  • Nephrectomies used to require invasive surgery that was difficult to recover from and involved a significant amount of pain. (jaimelandmanmd.com)
  • You can typically return to work after four to six weeks after nephrectomy surgery. (jaimelandmanmd.com)
  • As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed since surgery is specific to each patient, condition and procedure. (roboticcancersurgery.com)
  • Laparoscopic surgery is used most commonly to perform radical nephrectomy. (oxfordurologyassociates.uk)
  • Open surgery on the kidney is usually performed through an incision just under the ribs. (oxfordurologyassociates.uk)
  • A small number of people have only one functioning kidney either because they were born that way or as a result of previous surgery/cancer. (oxfordurologyassociates.uk)
  • With a combined multidisciplinary team of highly skilled heart specialists focusing on cardiology, interventional cathlab procedures, cardiothoracic surgery and vascular surgery, the center integrates its team's skills and experience to treat conditions of the heart, lungs and chest. (ahdubai.com)
  • The Heart & Vascular Center is capable of diagnosing, monitoring and treating all types of heart conditions through invasive and non-invasive cardiology procedures, cardiothoracic surgery and vascular surgery, supported by advanced rehabilitation services. (ahdubai.com)
  • Some patients have been told that one of the advantages of having surgery to remove the prostate (radical prostatectomy) is that it is the only true way to thoroughly review the pathology of the disease. (chicagoprostatefoundation.org)
  • They can occur immediately following surgery or may not become apparent for years later following the procedure. (docplayer.net)
  • The procedure may not be best for some patients who have had extensive previous abdominal surgery, hernias found in unusual or difficult to approach locations, or underlying medical conditions. (docplayer.net)
  • Oncology
  • Eric Jonasch, MD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses major findings over the past 12 months in kidney cancer, including combination immunotherapies and trends in surgical oncology. (ascopost.com)
  • Involvement of CTGF, a Hypertrophic Chondrocyte-Specific Gene Product, in Tumor Angiogenesis," Oncology (2001) 61:315-322. (freepatentsonline.com)
  • pathology
  • With the clampless method, the surgeons at CUC can keep the kidney perfused and send the tumor to pathology to make sure the margins are negative. (onclive.com)
  • surgeons
  • Surgeons will remove the scar or blockage through laparoscopically, then they carefully reconnect ureter to the kidney by fashioning it into a funnel shape structure. (laparoscopicsolutions.in)
  • performed while the heart is beating, these procedures require surgeons and cardiologists to learn new image-guidance based techniques. (spie.org)
  • mortality
  • According to the American Cancer Society, the rate of kidney cancer has been rising since the 1990s, but the mortality rate has decreased slightly since then. (news-medical.net)
  • Tumors that have grown large or spread (metastasized) through the bloodstream or lymphatic system to other parts of the body are more difficult to treat and present an increased risk for mortality. (premiermedicalhv.com)
  • mice
  • Although the first kidney transplants in mice were performed by Russell et al over 30 years ago (1) and refined by Zhang et al years later (2), few people in the world have mastered this procedure. (jove.com)
  • diseases
  • Identification of biomarkers that allow early detection of kidney diseases in urine and plasma has been an area of active interest for several years. (jove.com)
  • abnormal
  • Treating the stones with SWL in kidneys with anatomical abnormalities is inappropriate because if the stones do fragment with SWL, they will continue to reside in the kidney because of its abnormal drainage. (ucdenver.edu)
